    I worked at Sika full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Leader in the roofing industry

    Cons

    I was hired as the credit manager. I trained for three days working with SAP. The fourth day I was reviewing the receivables. The next morning I was let go. I was told I wasn't the right fit!!! I guess I wasn't worth the 70K salary.

    Advice to Management

    Give people a chance & have the controller enroll in personality training.

    Pros

    Rapidly growing, smart company. Always seems to stay one step ahead of the market and the competition.

    Cons

    Doesn't always take care of long time, experienced workers. Seem to favor new over old.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose experience workers because you are enthralled with new workers from acquisition or other companies.

    Pros

    People were nice, flexible scheduling

    Cons

    People were very set in their ways and were not always willing to help or explain things to someone new. There was zero tolerance for mistakes. No one is perfect, so this isn't acceptable.

    I was put into a position under a new manager who didn't know what he was doing (he had also just started). We were trying to switch over to a program that was already in use in Europe to produce MSDSs, but it was an impossible task. I would make a MSDS following the procedure I was given from Europe then sales and R&D would freak out about it having stuff in there that reacted out, repeat, repeat, repeat. I tried my very best to work with the program and with everyone involved, but it was a terribly frustrating ordeal. My manager even told me I had a bad attitude when I would explain my frustrations. At the peak of this, I was offered a job from a previous employer and ran as fast as I could.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know that my experience was the norm. It just seemed like bad timing. However, I was really struggling and no one noticed or cared to help. Pay attention to your workers.
