  • "Managers are horrible.(in 4 reviews)
  • "While the internship program is great, the training for this company is a joke; they offer sessions sporadically, but for new hires, you will struggle your first few months on the job unless you have a really good manager(in 4 reviews)

    Pros

    Solenis offers competitive wages and growth opportunities at multiple levels.

    Cons

    Customer sites (mills) can be hazardous and located in areas that aren't always close to desirable living areas. Expect to travel 30+ mins unless you enjoy living in more rural locations.

    Pros

    The basic employees are top notch, and try their best

    Cons

    Below average pay. Strange hierarchy at HQ where only management is appreciated and communicated to. If you are not management you are treated like garbage. You can't get anything done with approval of management, you are the last person told about special projects, and weekends and vacations are still considered company time. management hides the fact that employee churn is very high. It is all about EBTIA, but it is obvious that the company is positioning itself to be bought out. No one believes we will ever go public.

    Pros

    Great bonuses, good people managers

    Cons

    Solenis made their staff return to the HQ's office in May of 2020. Even with protocols put in place, everyone's job was doable from home. The CEO stated the mandate to return to work was for everyone to be collaborative and keep up our company's culture. This was not possible with the protocols in place, e.g. no in person meetings. Coming in but doing the work as-if we were home seemed hypocritical, and also put everyone's lives at danger especially in May of 2020 not knowing the severity of the pandemic.
