Company with real potential but lacks good management
Manager (Current Employee) –  Kingwood, TXNovember 30, 2017
This company has the potential to be a global leader in its field, but the management is currently more worried about the stock price than the strategic direction of the company. The company is currently making record revenue and profits but telling the employees how bad everything is going and how spending must be cut due to "hard times".

Overall, if the company would be sold to a strategic buyer and not a private equity firm, it has real promise. But until then, it will remain a dismal place to work.

Maintenance Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Youngsville, LAAugust 28, 2017
The company has nothing in place to support the efforts of reliability and really have no path forward to resolve these issues. I think they need to look into getting a contractor to come in and fix the issues

You either have the easiest job out there or the hardest, as long as everything was running all you had to do was pms, but when something was down it was all hands on deck.

Excellent Company Culture
Pricing Specialist - Rubber (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXApril 18, 2016
Orion is focused on business growth and employee productivity but they have an excellent company culture. They are aware and open to employee issues, they work with you to accommodate family, flexible schedules, and newly incorporated 9/80 which boost employee morale and overall appreciation for the company.
Pros
9/80 and compensation
Cons
Constant change in management and employees

Productive workplace and Great people
Helpdesk Analyst /Migration Deployment Specialist (Former Employee) –  Kingwood,TxFebruary 28, 2014
During my time at Orion Engineered Carbons was a Great experience and it is a very productive workplace. The staff is wonderful to work with as well. A typical day at work was as soon as you walked in the door there was always something to do. Learning a different way to Migrate a user to a newer version of windows on a scale of +100 employees was a definite new learning process. Possibly the hardest part of the job was making sure the image of WIN7 was correct and ensure there were no hiccups within the image itself. The most enjoyable part of the job was everything. From the staff to the job itself, it was truly enjoyable.

Productive and Professional atmosphere. Flexible with your schedule.
Accounts Receivable Specialist (Former Employee) –  Kingwood, TXJanuary 26, 2013
Worked 7am to 4pm CST Monday through Friday. Learned a lot if new things working primarily in SAP and how the Manufacturing business works. Friendly co workers and the management treats everyone on the same level. The hardest part of the job was resolving the pricing disputes and determined what the issues were before the data migration took place. The most enjoyable part of the job were resolving the issues and clearing balances, reducing the A/R.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
short assignments
