    I worked at Spartech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is an excellent company for those who like to work overtime. Also, there is always an opportunity to move upwards in the company. I would consider this company as a worker-friendly place.

    Cons

    Due to 12-hour shifts, the long hours may be too much for some, particularly those who work at night. For people who love to party, I would recommend something else.

    Advice to Management

    None. Management was excellent, specifically in providing communication to employees as well as a consistent emphasis on safety at all times.

    Pros

    Many experienced employees who understand the fundamentals of the business / The majority of the staff within the Spartech Corporation at all levels are easy to work with and always willing to assist (non-financially) employees at all levels

    Cons

    Established managerial workforce - Minimal potential for advancement / Annual compensation adjustments often insufficient / Due to a history of mimimal annual employee compensation adjustments, many employees at the plant level have lost their motivation to perform their tasks effectively and efficiently; in addition to losing their desire to assist the organization in its efforts to improve. Thus, the task for changing the organization, in order to be successful in the long run, can be difficult for managerial personnel at times.

    Advice to Management

    Too much to type; however, the senior management team is composed of an excellent group of individuals, who have the character necessary to take the organization to the next level.
