    Pros

    They do listen and if appropriate, will implement ideas that you bring to them. I found that part of the job very rewarding.

    Cons

    They are extremely focused on the performance of a quarter they are currently in, to the point that it sometimes comes at the expense of everything else you're working on.

    Pros

    A company full of innovative, fresh, forward thinking professionals. Almost everyone is positive and eager to help colleagues. A great deal of opportunity to grow with the company. OMNOVA enjoys allowing employees to work on special projects to gain knowledge of other department practices and promotes inner growth.

    Cons

    I haven't found one yet...

    Advice to Management

    Keep allowing employee flexibility! So far OMNOVA has given me a great work-life balance. OMNOVA gives back to employees multiple times per year with special events - this isn't common and it's greatly appreciated!

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to make a ton of money because of the availability of overtime. For the most part, great people to work with. Health benny's pretty good, money pretty good, 401k.

    Cons

    Management very hard to please. Going thru a lot of changes but your efforts are not appreciated. Old rule of thumb here "My way or the highway". You ask a question or try something different, you are automatically labeled as being negative. Fear in the work place is NOT healthy. Corporate HR visits from time to time but does not interact with the people on the floor. Dragging your lieutenants thru the mud is not a good way to improve their confidence or production. This company always had oppurtunities to move up/promotions but it has changed now. They will use you to do the job but they will not hire you for the job because you do not have a degree. If they are good enough to fill in (sometimes for years), they should be good enough to have the job then.

    Advice to Management

    Remove fear in the work place. Hostility is high & morale is low. Be thankful for the guys that grind for you on a daily basis. You know thoroughbreds are hard to come by, embrace them instead of alienate them.

    Pros

    The company, despite how long it's been around, is 'raw'; there's a lot of good, challenging work to be done. There is a lot of 'building' occurring, which allows employees to put their stamp on how the company looks in the future. Pretty cool stuff!

    Smart, hard-working coworkers

    Interesting products

    Cons

    Because of this 'rawness', there are processes you would expect to be developed--and they're not. That can get frustrating, because things take longer than they should.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure everyone understands the direction of the company to ensure we're rowing in the same direction.
