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

    Pros

    Good people below Top management level. Decent pay. Company has excellent products, and is leading inks and pigments company. Decent work-life balance.

    Cons

    Company continually forcing cost-cutting whilst top managers play golf, have lavish meals and wine and dine at company expense. People who speak up to voice legitimate issues are often fired. To get ahead you need to be a yes man. Company does not value diversity: no women or minorities in managment positions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro-managing. Listen to your employees. Diversify into other areas. Hire women and minorities, become more diverse.

    Pros

    Benefits are ok; there are some really good people working there. Most of the time you can adjust your schedule for a time if needed.

    Cons

    No advancement, no raises, bad communication, horrible corporate policies. Management would change every few months trying to implement new strategies or programs. Since SAP implementation, there is less collaboration between groups, or even within groups.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your isolated corporate offices. Get feedback from all levels, have respect for the experience and knowledge employees have gained. Managers of departments should have some background or experience in the area they are managing
