    Pros

    HR team truly cares for the well-being of employees. Now that Sun Products is owned by Henkel the opportunities are endless.

    Cons

    Sun Products was acquired by Henkel and the feel of the small corporate world is over.

    Advice to Management

    Continue developing people locally

    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

    Steady work, half way decent benefits, most of the managers are really nice and are willing to work with you.

    Cons

    Way to busy, not enough help, the pace is way to fast with not enough help. No air conditioning or heat in the warehouse area, this place is either an oven or a freezer.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of the sand and pay enough so you can keep help and put some heat and air conditioning in this place.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    No pros-seemed good at one point but over time that went away. Wish there was some good to say but there's hardly any.

    Cons

    Lack of appreciation at all times and has an emotionally driven management team. If you have a logical decision on anything, don't plan on your operations manager to ever understand. Not a forward thinking company-the operations, production and maintenance managers will never listen so no need to have an opinion. Need to be in the "in" group or you'll have a very difficult time moving up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people who don't deserve to be in those positions and remember some people have degrees.

    Pros

    Benefits on your first day!

    Cons

    Lean Manufacturing = making employees work overtime instead of hiring enough people to cover the machines. Too many chiefs, not enough indians.

    Advice to Management

    Retention = give more than a couple of sick days.. people have more than 2 days a year, they or their kids are sick!
