Great Company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sun Chemical full-time for less than a year

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

Good People; Horrible Communication;Lack of vision

Master Solutions Developer (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH (US)

I have been working at Sun Chemical full-time for more than 8 years

ProsMost of the people at Sun Chemical are fantastic. It is amazaing what people get done without support from management.

ConsUpper management is completely dis-engaged from the employees. There is no sense of common goals. Most decisions appear to be reactionary, not proactive

Advice to Senior ManagementShare the company's vision; bring back the dropped benefits and holidays.

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