Ici Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) was a British chemical company. It was, for much of its history, the largest manufacturer in Britain. It was formed by the merger of four leading British chemical companies in 1926. Its headquarters were at Millbank in London. ICI was a constituent of the FT 30 and later the FTSE 100 indices.

Ici had a takeover threat because the owned value wasn't reflected in the stock prices and chose to demerge, according to a post published by Geoffrey Owen and Trevor Harrison at hbr.org

"Why ICI Chose to Demerge. ICI, like other companies with a similar problem, faced the indignity of a takeover threat because the value of the best businesses it owned wasn’t reflected in the price of its stock. ICI’s problem wasn’t an unusual one. Changes in markets and technologies had overtaken the logic that held the component businesses together and bound them to the corporate parent. The parenting skills on which ICI’s earlier success had been based were no longer appropriate. ICI’s response, however, was unusual: a demerger that split the organization into two separate companies, new ICI and Zeneca. Today, each of the two companies is a far better parent to its portion of the old ICI portfolio of businesses than the old corporation had been to the whole."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Applied for a senior role; received a call and asked what my salary requirement would be because based on my experience I was probably looking for more than they wanted to pay, but if we could come to an agreement it would be great because I had great experience. In the DC area for almost 20 years experience, they want to pay less than $90K. They may want to define what they consider "competitive pay" on their web page and/or stop underbidding work to win the contract and then expect others to bail them out."


"The company is a government/military contractor, in essence, a body shop for their contracts with no concern for their employees. They handle conflict by simply getting rid of the employee rather than resolving the issue. There is no room for growth within the company. Management at the site I worked simply was not there."

Senior Account Manager (Current Employee) says

"A typical day is to come and do whatever you want as long as you do the work. Management does not give any kind of feedback or training. When problems arise make you sure you have great problem solving skills because management will not get involved. No job security and you are seriously OVERWORKED with no thanks for all of hard work comments from management. They are only concerned about the bottom line, MAKING SURE THE COMANY MAKES MONEY.You can work from homework overload, unconcerned managers, lacks any kind of company structure"

Safety Coordinator (Former Employee) says

"Wasted 14 months of my life, terrible management, the only thing they could do right is have affairs with employees. Drive 3 to 4 hours a day without pay, worked strictly for project managers not for your titled position. They could not get local union personnel to work for them, had to get employees from other states that did not know about there reputation.NothingEverything"

Branch Manager (Former Employee) says

"DDC's are managed as individual small companies and the manager has to make sue all aspects of the company are running to order, security, stock, staff morale, customers satisfaction etc. a typical day would be greeting the staff, have a ten minute run through of how the day could look, get people stocking shelves and facing products whilst opening up for the early morning builders and decorators. it is important that the team understand the customer and build a good working relationship with them. The teams ultimate role is to sell products and this would mean upselling at every opportunity, this can be made into a game to encourage the staff to have a bit of competitiveness. Throughout the day the managers role is to understand the rhythm of the branch and make changes accordingly. with a good team a DDC branch can run well but unfortunately the people above the branch level have no interest in the staff and treat them as not a significant part of the business, the pressure to sell has resulted in job losses of good members and a dissatisfaction of the working environment, this has had a knock on effect with the customers and sales will continue to fall. staff need to feel appreciated and have somewhere they can turn to that they know will be looking to their interests.Damaged paint tins sold to staff cheapLong hours with no recognition"

Wax prep/Machine operator (Former Employee) says

"Some days were lax other days were frustrating. I learn how to operate high lifts, data entry, and how to organize a warehouse. the management was poor do to the fact that they waited last minute to inform us of work situations. Like incoming and outgoing materials and products. I associated with many and some I sometimes meet from time to time. Trying to make sure that the products that were ready to ship didn't get buried with all the other products and materials we had to store. Meeting knew people whether they were part of the company or not and hearing there stories about employment history.you got 3 floating holidays to use a side from regular holidayshealth care was mediocre and employee appreciation was lacking"
