    I have been working at Sun Chemical full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are ok; there are some really good people working there. Most of the time you can adjust your schedule for a time if needed.

    Cons

    No advancement, no raises, bad communication, horrible corporate policies. Management would change every few months trying to implement new strategies or programs. Since SAP implementation, there is less collaboration between groups, or even within groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your isolated corporate offices. Get feedback from all levels, have respect for the experience and knowledge employees have gained. Managers of departments should have some background or experience in the area they are managing

    Pros

    Health benefits are decent, dollar for dollar match on 401k, sometimes get tickets to games

    No tuition reimbursement, terrible customer service, unclean/outdated facilities, cheap office, no real advancement for growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a chance for advancement and bonuses would be nice!

    I have been working at Sun Chemical full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work itself is fairly easy, and the technical colour aspects are pretty simple. Flexible schedules are a great bonus, and the management try to keep you happy when they come in.

    Cons

    The pay isn't what it should be, especially when you have to deal with awful customers. If you need equipment to make the job easier, or sometimes safety equipment required by OSHA, it will take some time to get it in. The fumes can be pretty irritating as well. The biggest complaint by far is customers whom mess everything up then blame you.
    The benefits really aren't the greatest, and won't send you cards. HR is extremely slow at dealing with any issues, or processing paperwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider making the benefits no-cost to employees.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Pay 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pretty good benefits and great co-workers

    Cons

    My location has been part of the company for 10 years now and they still appear to be out of the loop and somewhat disorganized at times. I've been with them for two years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make feeling proud to be a Sun Chemical employee a bigger part of the company culture at all of the plant sites.
