    Keep seeking new markets and opportunities while emphasizing the importance of taking responsibility for each and every person working at the company - we need to drive the business forward as well.

    I have been working at Sun Chemical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hardworking, respectful, honest, committed, patient, intelligent are just some of the words that I would use to describe the people I work with at the company.

    Cons

    The process change can be slow as it is a global company but depends on the influence of the manager to make change happen more quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in internal talent as they know the company and how it works. Will be able to shorten the learning curve compared to a new hire.

    Pros

    Professional organization and people, talented coworkers that make great teams. Even though the company is the largest ink manufacturer in the world, there is still a sense of family.
    Benefits are better than average for industry. I have no complaints, no regrets. I enjoyed my time with this company.

    Cons

    There are no cons about the company, but the entire printing industry is in sharp decline. Unfortunately, that causes loss of business and necessary downsizing. I would not recommend the printing industry as a whole, but as far as ink manufacturers, Sun Chemical is great.

    Pros

    A nice Chemical Trading Company, being sole distributors for BASF Polymer Chemicals. Top Management is keen to do only fair and honest business and earn fair income.

    Cons

    There are not much facilities for employees like leave, provident fund, gratuity etc.

    Advice to Management

    Top Management must try to introduce more employee related facilities in order to retain them for long term basis.
