    Negative Outlook

    I worked at LANXESS US full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits package is somewhat okay.

    Cons

    Low pay. Engineers are required to sign a two year contract to stay with the company. Inherited a position where the last two engineers quit shortly after a year. The environment has plenty of passive-aggressive behavior along with Belief Perseverance. Some employees work with impunity even though they are destructive and abusive.

    Advice to Management

    Improve every day.

    I have been working at LANXESS US full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Treat employees fairly, pay and benefits are good for the area, flexible when it comes to work-life balance.

    Cons

    Very siloed business units and group functions, few opportunities for growth in the US, too many directives and strategic decisions come from HQ (Germany), plant mentality can be very old-school and makes it hard to implement changes.

    I worked at LANXESS US full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefit package, one of the best 401K plans I have seen. Flexible hours and no micro managing. Reasonable vacation/sick package.

    Cons

    Male dominated hierarchy organization. Women were often overlooked for postions that they were more than qualified for only to be given to men who were less qualified. Most of the time the same rules would not apply to men as they did women for the same situations so that was very disheartening.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the equality of men to women ratio and positions they carry. It is known that a Man and a Woman can start the same job and he is paid at the higher spectrum while she is paid at the lower spectrum. Truly this should not happen!!

    Pros

    I had an excellent experience as an Intern.

    Cons

    Limited roles in sales force

    Advice to Management

    Hire young employees
