    I have been working at OMNOVA Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company, despite how long it's been around, is 'raw'; there's a lot of good, challenging work to be done. There is a lot of 'building' occurring, which allows employees to put their stamp on how the company looks in the future. Pretty cool stuff!

    Smart, hard-working coworkers

    Interesting products

    Cons

    Because of this 'rawness', there are processes you would expect to be developed--and they're not. That can get frustrating, because things take longer than they should.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone understands the direction of the company to ensure we're rowing in the same direction.

    Pros

    A company full of innovative, fresh, forward thinking professionals. Almost everyone is positive and eager to help colleagues. A great deal of opportunity to grow with the company. OMNOVA enjoys allowing employees to work on special projects to gain knowledge of other department practices and promotes inner growth.

    Cons

    I haven't found one yet...

    Advice to Management

    Keep allowing employee flexibility! So far OMNOVA has given me a great work-life balance. OMNOVA gives back to employees multiple times per year with special events - this isn't common and it's greatly appreciated!

    Pros

    They do listen and if appropriate, will implement ideas that you bring to them. I found that part of the job very rewarding.

    They are extremely focused on the performance of a quarter they are currently in, to the point that it sometimes comes at the expense of everything else you're working on.
