Don't pay any attention to some of the misanthropes that hang around this message board.
My 17 yeaars of experience with Cyanamid/Cytec was positive - especially with regard to some personal health issues. There was never a question about keeping my salary going even before disability coverage kicked in. Yeah, sure, there were some bone-headed strategic decisions; but that's true everywhere. By and large, it's a good company to work for.
I wouldn't concider moving around the corner to work for Cytec unless I had the terms of employment in a signed contract. Their promises aren't worth squat otherwise. By the way don't bother to pack your morals or self respect. You won't need them.
