    Pros

    Sun Chemical was a good place to get a start on working with SAP, working with billing, invoicing and basic accounting.

    Cons

    Sun chemical offered very little room for advancement and the pay was not particularly good.

    Advice to Management

    Sun chemical management should provide greater room for advancement and offer better compensation packages.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. First line management seem to be in tune with employees.

    Cons

    Senior leadership are preparing for a mass exodus (judging by their ages) into retirement. There does not seem to be a proper preparation for that day. Also, there are no employee events held any longer, tuition reimbursement has been cut out, even during profitable years.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and prepare for the future.

    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 Management

    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

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement, terrible customer service, unclean/outdated facilities, cheap office, no real advancement for growth

    Advice to Management

    Provide a chance for advancement and bonuses would be nice!

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
