    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

    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.

    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.
