    I worked at RPM International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a stable work environment with a low turnaround. People are friendly and mostly relaxed. Very low stress. The campus even though dated is still nice enough. Lots of freedom when working on the projects. It's a great place for self-motivated. Good place for learning. Free lunch.

    Cons

    Most people come and stay for 10+ years, which is usually good but can lead to mediocrity. There is a big gap in perks, salaries, bonuses, etc. between management and everyone else. In the already small workplace, people tend to stick with their small groups which creates alienation and lack of communication. Formal attire.

    Advice to Management

    Let the people know what's going on. Create a workplace that encourages teamwork and open communication.

    I worked at RPM International full-time

    Pros

    Free lunch and nice events

    Cons

    Only the people at “corporate” were treated with any respect and made any money. Over paid executives while everyone else is grossly underpaid and overworked. I was asked if I was an intern almost all the time when I was a full time employee for years! Management is soo out of touch it hurts, and they promote people who don’t deserve it. Additionally, the companies they own hate corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so out of touch and just listening to managers rather than employees, the only people actually doing work. Over working all the “low level” people not in corporate. Providing competitive salaries for all the horrible international travel to this awful companies.
