Pros

OMNOVA Solutions would bring in some good employees who were competent to work with. Their employee training program is average. Management watch dollars like a hawk.

Cons

The company has a "Big Brother" mentality. They believe that whatever any V.P or managing director says must be the gospel. There is no challenging of edicts coming from top management down. To do so means unemployment for the one who does.

Company is in a state of flux all the time with staffing levels. They sometimes hire when they simply need to use who they have, then are forced to do draconian cuts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many chiefs and not enough workers, especially in the IT and maufacturing sectors. Bring in new blood. Reliance on old employees will stalemate company. Share more bonuses with employees.

    Pros

    Some managers are very focused on growth and development of young engineers. There are a lot of opportunities that pop up as this is a larger company.

    Cons

    Some of the plants do not foster growth for youth. There need to be meaningful projects where you work with experienced engineers to learn and grow as an individual.

    Pros

    No pros to list to list at all

    Cons

    Cons=Everything!
    Expect 24x7 availability - 10-12 hour days not enough,
    People quit, not replaced = work is spread around,
    Very stressful environment,
    Old IT technology like 2003 Excel - joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop greed at the top and overpaid senior leaders
    Look at inefficient SAP systems at the plants with no useful reporting, cumbersome to use,
    No IT help at plants

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
