Lots of turnover in the finance departments due to poor management.
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHAugust 5, 2018
Decent enough pay to keep me there while I look for another job. Several finance departments have lost more than half their staffs, on five separate occasions, in the past two years, due to management. From my perspective, supervisors are chosen by how easily they can be controlled by their manager, not by their competence, skill, or ability to manage employees.

SENIOR ACCOUNT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  San Francisco Bay Area, CASeptember 19, 2017
Sun Chemical, is presently under a sales management team that does not see the benefit of face to face Sales Representatives. Thus they are reducing their sales force by 70%. This company is presently a house of cards until upper management is replaced.
Pros
Good Benefit Package
Cons
Low pay, long hours

Global leader in the industry
Manufacturing Director (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJune 20, 2017
There was no micro-management of my project activities -- just routine executive level reviews/updates. Although my direct position was considered the U.S., I was quickly responsible for north and south America.
Pros
Team environment, hands-off management
Cons
Very extensive travel, domestic and international

Graphic arts manager (Former Employee) –  OklahomaDecember 19, 2016
They never seem to be satisfied with how hard you work. Management is poor. Told you are doing a good job but then threaten your job everyday. I'm better off without the stress.

In-plant technician
In-plant Ink Technician (Former Employee) –  Eastern, USOctober 28, 2016
Sun re structured their management and operation techniques for the worse. Customers are left in the dark and the technicians have to put up a good face.
Too many politics, 5 chiefs for 1 Indian style.
At one point, I did not know who my direct sepervisor was.
They will leave you out to dry in front of customers and support is minimal.
Job advancement is poor.
Since leaving sun, I have doubled my pay and benefits.
Pros
Biggest ink company looks good in resume
Cons
Too many

Challenging, Rewarding, and Hands-On
Co-op Engineer (Former Employee) –  Northlake, ILSeptember 12, 2016
As a co-op engineer I worked on a variety of projects relating to production and maintenance. Projects ranged in scope and cost, and almost always required multidisciplinary engineering knowledge. Strong communication skills and planning were essential to be successful. A fair amount of autonomy and independence were required to progress through complex projects, however support and guidance from management was readily available and questions were highly encouraged.

A typical day would consist of responding to contractor questions through use of technical documents such as P&ID's and electrical schematics, writing purchase orders for equipment or services, scheduling installation and support services, and developing start-up testing procedures. Once projects were completed operator training and post project support ensured successful implementation.

The hardest and probably also most enjoyable part of the job were start-up efforts. Long hours are required to facilitate proper installation of production equipment, but success is extremely satisfying. I would highly recommend this company for their innovation in their industry and their development of employees.
Pros
High autonomy and ability to progress

Work place has the personality of a funeral home
Engineering Co-op (Former Employee) –  Northlake, ILAugust 8, 2016
Good hands on practical experience. Way too much traveling from plant to plant. Co-op engineering manager is a paranoid control freak who is very creepy, especially with the female co-ops

Hands on experiance
Cons
Questionable management

Very Poor Management in New Jersey
Demand Planning Manager (Former Employee) –  Northlake, ILJune 16, 2016
Senior Management in New Jersey are foul mouthed and work mainly with management by fear techniques. They want SAP experience but servers so slow it would take an hour to run a simple query. Run and don't look back.
Pros
None to be found
Cons
Too many to list
