    Pros

    The company ethos and mentality are very nice. There is a push to get things done, but not the hectic product first employees second mentality that is present some places.

    Cons

    I don't always feel fulfilled and am sometimes bored by my work environment. I could use more challenges and incentives to increase my potential and work hard.

    Advice to Management

    I feel like the emphasis placed on safety and respecting employees is great. There's a strong sense of loyalty to the company because of that.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are good and senior management is honestly committed to employee safety. Overall a positive experience. The company is very stable and has been for some time.
    Senior management is visible and willing to work with employees at all levels of the organization.

    Cons

    Not very much opportunity for professional growth. The organization is rather flat so promotional opportunities into a senior management role are sparse. Although this may be a con, the company does provide coaching and development for the next level.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a site level continuous improvement team member at each location. Someone who can focus on LEAN and six sigma projects to accelerate cost savings and increase loss intelligence.
