Great Place to work
Inventory Clerk / Relief Supply Chain Manager (Current Employee) –  Carthage, MODecember 4, 2018
This is a great place to work and great people to work with. The pay is good and the only thing is you have to start out with crazy hours. That is the only bad thing.

Great Hourly Pay - No room for advancement
BEX Quality Champion (Former Employee) –  Wolf Lake, ILNovember 12, 2018
The management at Dyno Nobel heavily relies on its hourly workers to not only do the production work, but also to carry the weight of many extra job tasks that are not reflected in the pay. The culture is very split between those who work, and management. There is very little room to advance and even less room for change.
Pros
Good hourly pay
Cons
benefits aren't great, They don't care about their employees

Two stars
Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Lehi, UTAugust 1, 2018
If you are a white Mormon male, R&D at Dyno Nobel is the place for you. Here you will be given raises and bonuses for sitting in your office planning your next kid, be given the company car for 10 months when when your car breaks down, and be promoted over others for no reason.

MARKETING CONTENT AND CREATIVE LEAD (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTMay 31, 2018
To be fair this is not a bad company it is just an old school thought company with no desire to drive success for the younger generation. The company talks about how people are the most important, after safety of course, but that is all it is, talk. There is a lot of room for improvement but upper management does not seem to like self-reflecting and taking criticism seriously.
Pros
People
Cons
Upper Management, not a lot of growth

Good pay - no home life
Interstate Bulk Driver - (Former Employee) –  Cheyenne, WYApril 8, 2018
Dyno Nobel paid well, I had a great manager. The expectation of a 70 hour work week was hard mentally and physically. My body broke down. I offered to go part time, unfortunately the company was unable to accommodate me. If you are single, dont have a home to upkeep and rather be alone - this is the job for you. If you are a family person..... not a good match.
Pros
pay / benefits
Cons
70 hr work week ... every week.

Difficult Culture to work in
HAM Operator (Current Employee) –  Simsbury, CTMarch 3, 2018
Pay and salary good, benefits mediocre. Almost a cult of overtime, no work/life balance. 10 days pto, have to save 8 for shutdowns = 2 days vacation per year for 5 years. Management claims operation works bottom up, but thinks top down. Very high stress, production is key, staffing is secondary.
Pros
Pays better than most
Cons
High stress, little time off, rotating schedules.

Group Human Resources Manager (Former Employee) –  Ulster Park, NYDecember 11, 2017
The culture in the explosive industry is fantastic. The understanding that the dangers inherent to the industry puts everyone ( that is conscious ) on the same page.
I miss it. No where else I have worked has such a bond.

Flexible work hours helped in accomplishing our goals.

Challenging environment catering to millenials
Finance Department (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTSeptember 18, 2017
Dyno Nobel Senior Management has vision for growth, and the company appears to have an excellent strategy to execute the plan. Senior Management will challenge each other in many areas of the business, which can lead to excellent new ideas, but it can also lead to silos and entrenchment of ideas.
Pros
Reasonable pay, excellent people to work with
Cons
Management willing to part with experienced staff, prefers to hire new skills rather than train current staff, prefers to hire less-expensive, young new employees with desired skills
