A great place to work on your own, yet always someone available to assist when needed. Wonderful team environment and leadership. Duties were clearly defined and all resources needed were provided.

Fun workplace

It's a great place to work. Every college is friendly and will assist you when u need help. The salary is great, especially if you are a student and don't need to pay any taxes.

work was challenging

the work keeps you on your toes. The environment can be stressful because areas are controlled from a different branch. The pay goes by a job matrix, so the more you learn, the more you make.

High work flow, high expectations

The company provides good benefits, big corporation with advantages of job security, the plant in Wickliffe has been built to be a big refining plant. Work/Life balance depends on department. Some Management team members are good, some are just ok.

Solid Company

Umicore has been a great company to work for. The environment is pretty laid back and although some of the management will consistently follow up with you to get answers on questions you don't ever feel like someone is breathing over your shoulder. The company is very forward thinking and is doing a lot of things to help out the environment and the economy including being one of the biggest recyclers in the world. Being able to communicate with employees across the globe has been a very unique experience and you get to see how business is conducted in different parts of the world. The one negative in my opinion would be pay. Although the company offers very good benefits I do feel like the pay is a little bit less than what the market value of some people should be. Overall the company is very solid and you would be able to have a profitable career if you stayed long term.

Big company very tightly manages

Umicore is a big company and was very difficult to get promote above middle management. The job is very secure and loyalty to the employees is good. I have herd that the culture has changed since i left, and there are more opportunities to advance.
