    Great people, but top heavy and risk averse

    Sep 22, 2008 - Process Engineer in Croydon, PA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Very flexible with work schedule, excellent benefits good annual bonuses (sometimes). Generally, Rohm and Haas employees are very smart, capable people that are willing to help you whenever possible. Overall, Rohm and Haas hires good, honest people and if you share those traits you will find a lot of friends.

    Cons

    Salary is somewhat lagging relative to peers, there are many employees that are nearing the end of their career and "blocking" the younger generation from entering management roles. Networking can be difficult unless you are located at one of Rohm and Haas' Delaware Valley locations. Rohm and Haas is a very risk-averse culture that is often slow to act. Many senior technical employees are eventually promoted to middle managers, which is often beyond their personal abilities. The result is a parental culture and one which values the status quo above all else.

    The best company I have ever worked for.

    Pros

    Although Rohm and Hass is now Dow Chemical, it was the greatest company to work for in way of how they treated their people. They appreciated the work you done and always let you know. They give you a sense of pride working for them. They also cared about your safety and your balance for work and home life. Rohm and Haas was good to me for 30yrs. How many people in today's world can say they really enjoy going to work every day? I did!

    Cons

    The only down side for Rohm and Haas I can think of is when they sold out to Dow Chemical. It was no longer a people place. No matter what you done it was never enough. They push their people to a breaking point.

    Pros

    Rohm and Haas is an excellent place to work. The core values of the company are loyalty and integrity and this is demonstrated by the tenure of the people who work at Rohm and Haas. The individuals are oustanding and for the most part are supportive to each other. The leadership has done an excellent job at navigating through global economic conditions. Its really fun to work there.

    Cons

    Rohm and Haas began, as all companies starting in the beginning of the 20th century as paternalistic. They work hard on diversity and innovation but in general it is a fairly conservative organization.

    In the transition ....

    Jun 2, 2010 - Research Manager in Spring House, PA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Response depends on the business unit. The powder group was fast paced with lots of opportunity to grow and succeed. Less degree oriented and more "show me the results" to gain the promotion or position. Great supportive team to work with.

    Cons

    Work/life balance could be non-existant if you are not careful. Not easy to move from one business unit to another,

    Pros

    Rohm and Haas was a great employer. The salary, benefits and bonuses were excellent, as were the opportunities for talented and motivated people to advance in their careers.

    Cons

    The company went through reorganizations before and following its sale to Dow. Many jobs were lost, which is stressful to those who were retained, as well as to those who were not.

    Good company, great products and history.

    Oct 9, 2009 - SAP Basis Analyst in Philadelphia, PA

    Pros

    Very supportive culture. Strong emphasis on employee satisfaction. Great company to retire from. Growing emphasis on professional growth. Great business processes as recognized across the industry.

    Cons

    The culture was not very conducive for aggressive and fast-tracked growth. The high percentage of long-term employees meant a newcomer (especially a fresh graduate) felt like they had a long way to go.

    learned a lot while i worked here. everyone was very willing to teach me and took a personal interest in my career development.

    Pros

    Great culture and people. Prized for customer service and support. On the cutting edge for technology in paint and coatings.

    Cons

    Rohm and Haas no longer exists. It was supposed to be a subsidiary of Dow but once the sale went through, Rohm and Haas was absorbed into Dow Coating Materials.
