    Severely lagging technically

    Scientist (Chemist) (Former Employee) Carlstadt, NJ (US)

    ProsVery low expectations, the current bar is the front doorstep.

    ConsPay well below average, no advancement potential, no communication between groups, people with skills are ignored if they are in a lower position, Sr. management dictates but never listens

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn the skill sets of your employees, stop hiring outside when you can advance from within and learn to congratulate someone for doing something well.

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

    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsA positive sign is when many of the people have been with the company for 10 years or more. However, with that they are still looking for ways to remain relevant as the industry continues to change.

    ConsA challenge that still remains is altering peoples minds that the company needs to continue to evolve. Many people have been happy with remaining at the status quo and are reluctant to change however upper management is eager to move forward giving lots of credibility to newcomers into the organization.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
