    Pros

    Good insurance starts day 1

    Cons

    Low wages and very low raises, They hired an 18yr 1st job right out of HS at a higher pay compared to my 20+ yrs of experience. He didnt last long. I stayed long enough to find a better job.

    I worked at Sun Products Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Close to SLC, decent snacks in vending machines, receptionist wears latex on Halloween

    Cons

    Too much management, too many "important people", clique, management wants a ridiculous amount of communication, so much communication that no one has time for it, low paying company, new CEO every 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Half of you need to leave the company.

    I have been working at Sun Products Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Steady recession proof product so job security

    Cons

    They do not send employees for external training, they do not promote from within. The Plant Manager embodies the phrase, the beatings will continue until morale improves.

    I worked at Sun Products Corporation (More than a year)

    Pros

    Several opportunities to influence my internal teams both formally and informally as processes undergo consistent change; ability to help design the role.

    Cons

    Extremely poor work-life balance, and my director often called out the wrong person in cross-functional meetings to compliment and reprimand/ critique. Changed label claims as often as possible, not realizing the true cost.

    Advice to Management

    Close the door when you want to call out an issue with someone's work, and this will be the best place to find out you may be talking to the wrong person.

    Pros

    Founded from Entrepreneurial spirit of Huish
    Small company competing against enormous competitors
    Nice offices
    Free coffee
    Discount coupon for laundry detergent

    Cons

    Management by fear and extreme micromanaging by executives leads to workforce that is paranoid and inefficient. Private Equity casts a big shadow. Hopefully Henkel will bring some balance and control to the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people

    Pros

    Enjoyed the type and amount of work, Working with management or others in productive, pro company people is great.

    Cons

    Too many uneducated chiefs that treat the hard workers as worthless and the lazy, social people as gold. Closing plants, farming out the warehouse jobs to other companies. Corporate is too far to be actively involved with real work.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and look for the best for the company. Lead from the front and be willing to recognize the hard workers and let go of the friends or ones who kiss up.
