Management doesn't connect with the workers
Plant manager (Former Employee) –  Roswell, GAFebruary 8, 2019
Management has little experience in the mines or plants or with the customers. There is a disconnect from the workers. The arrive at sites in pointy shoes and want to be pampered while they ignore the safety rules everyone is made to follow.

The react to everything with "initiatives" and constantly change priorities without providing resources. This is typical of businesses but communication is lost the ever changing reorganization. They would change customer formulas without telling them. With the stock dropping like a stone, they have shown no commitment to their people. Cutting lots of jobs and great employees so upper management can try to minimize damage from the poor financial reports.
Pros
Lots of dead weight in management
Cons
Too many to list. Look elsewhere

The worst company I ever worked for
Manager/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 17, 2019
This company hides a lot of the problems. Starts from upper management . They only support protect their friends and hide look the real problems. As soon as changes are announced the idiot management starts to protect themselves by firing the competent ones. It’s a false “elitist” company. Shame, the French are clueless and don’t see how costs are hidden. Oh well. They deserve what’s coming to them.
Pros
None
Cons
Management is “ home based” laughable

Casual Workplace with a ping pong table and lots of coffee
Mine Engineer Intern (Former Employee) –  Fernley, NVAugust 1, 2018
Good company and great people in the filtration minerals team. The company is very large; however, which leads to communication issues and bureaucratic nonsense pretty regularly. Projects move on fairly slowly because of the long approval process and chain of commands to get things done.

Powder Mill Controls Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lompoc, CAJuly 13, 2018
Opportunities for success as long as you can work in an extremely high paced, stressful environment. Not many resources, but still innovative and lucrative if you are a hard worker.

Toxic environment
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Roswell, GAJune 20, 2018
The environment is very toxic either at the plants or at the main office in Roswell.
The upper management don't care about people and salary is way bellow average.
There are no recognition, support and growth opportunities.
Job rotation is high as people soon realize they've made a bad decision accepting a job at Imerys - Ceramics division
The staff is extremely compact which pushes you to work extra hours every day and even during weekend and holiday. The good thing about it is that you are pushed to learn more/new things.
Pros
Learning opportunities
Cons
no growth opportunities, low compensation, bad upper management

Great team environment
Production Operator/ Quality Control (Current Employee) –  Bennettsville, SCJune 6, 2018
Effective and efficient operational process.
A typical work day consist relieving the previous shift operator after debriefing of issues during his/her shift. Safety and cleanliness is prioritized. Fast-paced environment with minimum supervision in an industrial environment, attention to detail is a strong attribute. Having to make contact with the customer regularly, I've learned the detailed expectations which creates a stronger bond between both organizations. The most difficult part of the job is mechanical breakdown, delayed process, delays production. I enjoy the concerns about the employees and our safety from management, as well as the working conditions and environment.
Pros
Management responds to the concerns of their employees
Cons
Bending, pulling, and lifting heavy supplies and equipment

The managers and team members are very good hard-working people who will be honest with their expectations but will work beside you. Everybody treats each other good and it is very consistent work.
