Chemical or Plastic

I have got an offer in FP&A. The company has two main segments: Chemical & Plastics. They asked me to pick one. Which one would you guys suggest to pick and why?

Congratulations, that’s awesome.

I would ask to see a set of financials for both segments and then choose the one that seems to be in an uptrend. It’s much easier to get promoted in a segment that is growing. If neither is growing, then I suppose it depends on the type of chemicals or plastics. I am a bit skeptical of anything that is highly dependent upon resin (plastic) since we are probably going to be in a prolonged period of input cost pressure for some years. Just my $0.02.

Bromion, Thanks for the inputs.

Bromion. Excellent idea. I would have missed that.
