    Pros

    Growing company, diversified products, gain of experience, a lot of good/great people, fast pace, good compensations.

    Cons

    Not much mobility, lack of methodology and consistency in the processes, very compartmentalized structure. Relatively limited team work, inefficient communication. Limited employee/management training.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and fortify the company's procedures before growing too quickly by acquisition. Fully integrate acquisition. Less management, more leadership.

    Pros

    Perks - company car, cell phone, laptop, flexible hours, work from home office

    Cons

    Extensive travel, long drives. Loneliness.

    Hire more young employees. The age gap is pretty large between the older sellers and the younger sellers.

    Pros

    Great recruiting angle. The company is nice and shiny from the outside.

    Cons

    Poor on boarding , lack of support from "mentors". Lack of support from upper management. Sink or swim mentality. I left a job with 6 yrs of tenure to join an organization that I was lead to believe valued employees. It was a very disappointing experience.

    Advice to Management

    Goals and objectives are not consistent between corporate and the field. Politics at facilities tend to overshadow "doing the right thing". You spend a lot on recruiting.....invest in your people.

    PolyOne is a great place to start your career to gain experience.

    Cons

    Multitude of schedule changes - lack of a set schedule
    Large turnover which leads to large portion of the work force that lacks experience.

    Hold Management Team more accountable when mistakes occur. Don't allow mistakes to be swept under the rug. Corrective actions will prevent similar mistakes from reoccurring.
