    Pros

    Pay is ok for the size of company.

    Management is a joke. They are too busy blaming employees instead of fixing the problems. Mergers & bankruptcy consumes this company. Working hours are on Dupont schedule.

    I have been working at Momentive Specialty Chemicals full-time

    Pros

    It's a good place to start off if you're a recent grad and is looking to get into the oil and gas business.They love promoting from within and you get a chance to work with a lot of different parts of the company (technology, marketing, supply chain etc) because it's still a "fairly" small business unit (OTG). Benefits are good and there are some good people working there.

    Cons

    I did not like the strict 8-5 rule, no leniency, a small thing, but makes a huge difference in peoples lives. Management is young, and unfortunately there is a lot of double standards going on, for example, the same rules doesn't apply to management, or a select group of elites.
