    I worked at Troy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you are OK with the Cons below, it would be an OK place to work.

    Cons

    1) Employees are required to put in fingerprints, and it is used to record the work time. 2) Employees are expected to work 60-70 hours per week and that the immediate managers and owners always keep track of time. It is required to put in 60 hours per week to the least. 3) They give you seven sick days. Sick leaves are not allowed to take and that if you end up using any sick leaves, it reflects on your year-end...

    I have been working at Troy

    Pros

    Troy is a worldwide specialty chemical company. It is a stable and growing company. My position allows me to interact with colleagues around the world. This makes for an interesting and satisfying work experience. Projects are diverse and teamwork is encouraged. It is a professional yet friendly work environment. Management has always provided our department with the most updated tools i.e. software and equipment to get...

    Cons

    Our project list is extensive, which often means moving from one project to another quickly. It also means multi- tasking to meet deadlines. Unfortunately, working from home is strongly discouraged because management believes in face - to - face interaction.

    Advice to Management

    Every year our Holiday Party is top notch, as is our company picnic and once a month bagel days. All work wonders to promote employee relationship and esteem. Maybe consider other options to promote teamwork and employee relationship such as: once a quarter catered lunch, Quarterly employee awards, or, more importantly, employee challenges to benefit a cause.

    I have been working at Troy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are no "pros" to working here.

    Cons

    micro management - witch hunts - no comp time - unrealistic expectations - no work/life balance - no working from home - you will die here, then they will scrape your corpse up, throw you in the dumpster and replace you.

    Advice to Management

    take lessons on how to be human. If you care about your people, they would care about you, and do great work for you.

    I have been working at Troy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    THere are no pro's to working at Troy, well maybe with the exception that if you do not produce you will have a job for ever.

    Cons

    The salary is lower than the national mean scores for just about every position THE LEVEL OF MISTRUST or ALL employees from the owners of the company ( 3 family members) is unreal. Like nothing I've seen in the corporate world. Middle management is not allowed to make any decisions at all on project spend, even when it is at a level of 500 dollars. This is a management graveyard. Most employees are 50+ so health benefits...

    I have been working at Troy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Troy is a solid, stable company with consistent profitability and long-term rewards for loyal employees. Privately owned, it is not subject to the short-term pressures of shareholder value, so decisions are made that are in the best interests of the company for the long-term.

    Cons

    No telecommuting - only the sales force can work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Business casual dress should be allowed all year long!
