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

    Pros

    I've worked as an Engineer at four chemical manufacturing companies. I can say that Olin stood out as the company that truly:
    Committed to a 'safety first' culture
    Valued and grew their technical employees
    Properly staffed and committed to not reducing headcount
    Committed to a long term plan and vision for the company

    The management at every other company will preach those priorities and talk about their importance, but only at Olin did the actions and decisions of upper management back them up.

    Cons

    Management was slow to prioritize and fund projects that should have been no-brainers. I.E. "Roof is leaking? Lets wait a year to replace." I assume this happens to some degree at every manufacturing site looking to optimize and cut costs.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, keep doing what you're doing.

    Good people, good work, good environment, benefits
    I've learned so much at OLIN. I really love my coworkers and believe that we are doing important work at OLIN. Everyone has room to grow and it's a dynamic and interesting place.

    Occasional to consistent long hours, demanding expectations, and critical thinkers (if you want to consider those things as cons)

    Advice to Management

    This is not the appropriate place for this advice.
