Mark Goldberg: General Counsel
What stands out most to me about working for Bluestar Silicones, now Elkem Silicones, is the people. We have a family atmosphere where we can work, succeed and have some fun along the way.
Elkem has small company values with a large company backbone. Our employees are loyal and determined enough to make the best decisions for the company. There is great camaraderie and it is not a secret that we want our atmosphere to be professional and fun. I see that we:
- promote diversity in people, ideas and experiences.
- combine talents and skills to build partnerships and develop creative, value-adding solutions.
- take ownership and embrace accountability for our work.
- develop our people and capabilities.
From the time I was first introduced to the team I knew it would be a devoted an enjoyable group to interact with on a daily basis. Since being a part of Elkem I've noticed how family friendly it is here, the company is amenable to balancing your work and personal life. It also is a growing company, with likeminded people with an entrepreneurial spirit. What sold me to stay was the team; the employees are what makes a company function. The people you surround yourself with affect the way you behave and I wouldn't want to be a part of another group of people. I was able to expand my knowledge with Elkem. With dedication and hard work you can earn the trust of your peers, management, as well as, the team in Norway and France. You give what you get and that's definitely been something I've seen while working here.
