    Pros

    They offer somewhat flexible work hours

    Cons

    I have never worked for a company that could care less about their employees. No profit sharing. It makes no difference if you perform terrible or excellent. For "employee appreciation day" they gave out a free cup of coffee and small bag of popcorn during lunch only.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like you would like to be treated. Do the right thing for your department. Go to bat for the employees under you.

    I worked at Summit Polymers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Since March of 2017 there are no Pros. New management has ruined any Pros.

    Cons

    Upper management abuses authority. Lower management and Supervisors are treated unfairly. New management has drastically destroyed the teamwork and caused a lot of good people to leave by managing thru threats, intimidation, and harassment. If you complain you get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your honest, loyal employees

    Pros

    Great health insurance, 401K plan, work/life balance, ownership involvement, privately held, rapidly expanding

    Cons

    I have yet to find any cons to my position here, it has been very busy but that's a good thing!

    Advice to Management

    None-everyone is doing great!
