    Pros

    401k - 5% match, plus an additional 5% yearly contribution in Q1 each year to employee 401k
    Time off, 2 weeks vacation for years 1-4, 3 weeks for years 5-9, 4 weeks for years 10-19, 5 weeks max at 20 years of service. Holiday time includes 8 scheduled/national holidays in the US, plus 4 floating holidays.
    -Family owned feeling, although that has diminished in recent years...

    Cons

    Privately owed, so this limits capital invested into maintain production plants and labs. Also the attempt to operate as lean as possible in regards to staffing is unfair to the ground level employee. Management staff is too top heavy and creates too much red tape to operate effectively.
    Slow to provide raises or promote from within...

    Advice to Management

    Fairness and recognition to all employees, regardless of title will boost morale and improve productivity.

    I have been working at J.M. Huber full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Huber practices genuine respect for people. Huber has strong guiding principles and develops its people. It has a real family atmosphere. Huber promotes collaboration among its businesses in environmental health and safety. Compensation is good and has high upside to tension.

    Cons

    Benefits are typical and not above average. Capital can be tight due to family owned nature of business. Huber does a good job of managing the workforce but might be a little light in technical resources. Doing too much with too little.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with good development of people but further invest in site infrastructure
