Research Associate (Current Employee) – Lehi, UT – August 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, UT – May 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.
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.
no title (Former Employee) – Wolf Lake, IL – March 18, 2018
Did not enjoy this employment was first hired by manpower and at first was great but when offered a fulltime position in another building it was pretty well cut throat everone was at each other and few cared about people
HAM Operator (Current Employee) – Simsbury, CT – March 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.
Group Human Resources Manager (Former Employee) – Ulster Park, NY – December 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.
Freelance Project Manager / General Contracting (Former Employee) – Louisiana, MO – October 7, 2017
6 am till 4 pm Construction quality inspections and safety inspections. Document progress and report to plant engineer. Safty first is their goal. Excellent people to work with and great teamwork spirit. Some days were difficult to get enough accomplished because of weather conditions. Flexible work hours helped in accomplishing our goals.
Finance Department (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – September 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.
Reasonable pay, excellent people to work with
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
