Productive Company, needs to change with the times
SQM (Former Employee) – Wilmington, MA – 22 August 2018
Overall a long term company with a alot of history, which can help or hinder depending on who is in charge. Never able to get the transitions correct with the shift in technology/times.
Terrible at handling acquisitions, but able to put things together and generate success in certain avenues. Has he luxury of enabling several cash cows to keep them afloat admid mistakes, management changes and industry shifts.
"Safe" working environment you can feel comfortable for your job here if you are an individual contributor. It is not challenging if that is what motivates you but there is alot of room to grow and get quality training internally.
If you know how to make the most out of 3-5 years here you can get what you need and move on with alot of usable tools for another job.
work life balance, low risk environment, average compensation but has many learning perks
poor compensation, constant changes without vision, not understanding the market, unable to make dynamic changes -- too hesitant to change on time
