Flexible 9/80 work schedule Small enough company it's possible to have visibility with Senior Management early on Big enough company jobs are secure Multiple locations in the Houston area
Number of "managed moves" limit advancement opportunities for other job - seeking employees Some manufacturing sites have Union - management relationship issues2

Just two years ago with the past plant Manager things were very positive. As a current employee not any "Pros" to report
In and out management. No conitnuity. Promoting experienced employees is very limited. All about the 'Degree' Company policies such as 'No Harassment from Management' is allowed at the Pasadena plant!

Benefits . Overtime available due to understaffing . Sick employees, others taking pto or vacation.
As far as the department I worked in there seem to be lack of structure due to management. Alot of things were left to the employees to handle... causing issues amongst the shift.

a lot of small cheap freebie.
Asia HR management is lousy. Very bad office politic and no leadership skills especially those newly appointed leader- lack of experience.

High pay for long hours. Understaffing provides lots of opportunities to learn different tasks at expense of work/life balance.
Management bullies team members. Conflicting direction given to employees creates confusion. Complaints are addressed with gaslighting techniques. Don't expect your supervisor to support your efforts or to advocate on your behalf to upper management. Leadership program is very poor. Performance review program is confusing and one-sided.6

Advancement based on work experience and capabilities versus degree Diversity and Inclusion Growing company with lots of opportunity
Growing company that is losing that 'family' feel Management jobs being filled with non-CPChem employees, very divisive and demeaning Imported management bringing in a confrontational style versus the previous collaborative style6

- Decent salary, 401k/pension, and benefits. - 9/80 schedule.
I have worked for 3 different companies before this, and CPChem is by far the worst company I have ever worked for. ICARE is BS. Management would blatantly lie to manipulate their narratives and put people that they don't like in trouble. A lot of people who did nothing but are sycophants are promoted, whereas people who work hard are left behind. Too many people are hired, promoted or given other favors due to them being their friends, relatives or spouses. Backstabbing is considered a good leadership skill; there is nothing worse than grown up 40, 50 or 60 year old's gossiping about newest members (who are half their age) to the leadership, who had no clue what really is going on but trust them due to them being with the company longer. HR would also jump in to cover up the managers, not the employees, so there's no point raising ethical issues. Seriously, these people have no values, moral ethics, or class. There was a mentor of mine who had not gotten a promotion in 18 years due to him not sucking up to leadership (of course he eventually quit). There is no accountability from senior leaders, managers and engineers, and everything that went wrong was blamed on the newest members of the team, whereas they took credit for things that went well. When I found a new job, I was the happiest person in the world, since this was the worst job I had ever had in my life.2

Lots of growth and plenty of opportunity.
A lot of movement of management and hard to implement programs with people moving around so much.
