"Challenging work but, employees don't get recognized for their personal daily accomplishments"

Chemist (Current Employee)
Baltimore, MD (US)

I have been working at Sun Products Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsIt's a job and nowadays, that says a lot.

ConsWhen you're owned by an equity firm (Vestar in this case), don't expect much as far as pay and benefits. Company doesn't recognize employee's skills and talents.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees more and make them feel like they're part of the company. Develop their skill sets no matter what jobs they do.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great brands with downfalls

Manager (Former Employee)
Wilton, CT (US)

I worked at Sun Products Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat co-workers, culture, benefits and training. Allows for strong learning in the consumer goods industry among great brands, customers and co-workers. Benefits and training competitive or better than normally expected in the industry.

ConsExcessive voluntary and involuntary turnover as management consistently appears to be changing focus. This leaves co-workers very nervous and hinders the hiring or retention of best candidates.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink long term and stay focused

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Comfortable place to work but it is closing the Baltimore operation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Baltimore, MD (US)

I have been working at Sun Products Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFocus on one product line, just laundry care.
Flexible hours for support staff.
Strong orientation towards people having a life outside of work.

ConsPeople are not held responsible for their performance.
Organization is flat to the point of no direction given.
Problems are identified but no one is given responsibility to make sure that the problem gets fixed.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhile it is great to empower people to do their jobs as they see fit, there still needs to be accountability.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
