I worked at OMNOVA Solutions

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

    Employees that are dedicated and hard working, challenging work environment, varied responsibilities.

    Cons

    Executives do not provide the resources or tools to make improvements necessary. Sr leadership is responsible for lack of growth of the company. They will soon be out of assets to sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow the remaining businesses, remove technology/systems obstacles so employees can accomplish improvements, allow employees to have some work life balance. Your expectations are unrealistic
