    I worked at Sika Sarnafil full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Sarnafil products are truly sustainable and offer great performance. The single-ply membrane materials - whether exposed as a conventional commercial roof or buried as a waterproofing membrane under a green roof or a plaza deck - have a life expectancy of at least 35 years (and, in my opinion, may be double that). That's better than nearly any other option. The only "better" alternatives cost a LOT more. I... reported to managers whom I still admire and worked with colleagues who were also knowledgeable, hard-working, fair and enjoyable to work with. I had a great job with them.

    Cons

    The parent company, Sika Corporation is not the same. They have numerous excellent product lines in other divisions, but the senior management is not fully competent.

    Advice to Management

    Sika should allow Sarnafil to do what they know how to do and stop interfering.

    I worked at Sika Sarnafil

    Pros

    The Sarnafil membrane is a good product. Good reputation in the single-ply market. You don't have to work weekends or holidays

    Cons

    Local management does not have your back. Will make decisions that placates the contractor. Do not trust HR with anything. Will have to use personal vehicle with very poor reimbursement (you will be upside down in value in no time) Once a field guy always a field guy, no place to move up the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Provide company vehicles, get feedback from the employees and stand up for the field guys.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Sika Sarnafil full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good company to work for, with higher ups that respect what the people on the ground or in the field have to say, if you are brave enough to approach them. Competitive salary and benefits, communicated very clearly from the start.

    Cons

    A little lengthy in the interview/hiring process. Departments are very segregated until you have the chance to get to know a few people on a personal level, like at one of the great company events or parties.

    Advice to Management

    Try to co-mingle employees from different divisions on occasion.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Sika Sarnafil full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent product with an extensive history of performance

    Cons

    Senior Management is not engaged with their people or their customers. The organization does not recognize or support strong performers. Mediocrity and a don't rock the boat attitude are the keys to success. From the VP level on down management is only interested in checking the list to satisfy their goal and has little concern for the people that work for them.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people with respect and listen to what they have to say about the market. Do what you say you are going to do. Spend some time and money on training.
