He has a pattern of lying and giving confusing and contradicting instructions to local employees and later denying."

Product Manager (Former Employee) says

"From the President on down bullying is the management style. Company is run by financial KPI even when those are in direct disagreement with the basic business premise of making products selling those products and delivering those products to a customer on a timely basis. Typically workers are put under so much stress or given so many multitasks that they dont work cohesively and dont achieve basic business goals. Cons: Negative environment, bullying, annual downsizing for budgets do not value employees"

Quality Control Chemist II (Current Employee) says

"Atotech at this moment is struggling to find leaders and the work load is piling up while there is no compensation given to hard workers.

Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee) says

"Areas that made Atotech a difficult company to work are culture, advancment, and management. For the most part, Atotech's work environment is very standoffish with a few employees. They will sabotage your advancement. Its like playing a political game. The management may have improved over rhe years but now it may ne different because their turn over os high in rhis area. Cons: Advancement, culture, and management."
