(1) The environment is a good place to be. (2)The people are nice and the work is not too hard. (3) IT operates like a small company (4) Management doesn't micro manage.
(1) They contract out so you don't directly work for the company (2) They do not want to pay for all the work that you are actually doing. (3) Definitely over worked (4) Possibilities for career growth if you plan on being with the company for 10 + years.

Friendly work environment, good pay, job security, fairly safety focused
Understaffed in some areas, which leads to some departments being overworked or things being slowed down. Not much pay difference for high performance (could be a pro for some people). Work life balance varies widely depending on your role.

9/80 schedule (every other friday is off) is great. You can move to a variety of positions in many different locations early on. Hard working but generally laid-back atmosphere. Lots of training and opportunities to learn from more experienced people once you get used to the system. As of 2013, they are eager to send engineers to Saudi Arabia (other international locations exist as well) if you are interested in living internationally.
Because they are growing so quickly, sometimes the organization and direction for incoming engineers feels sloppy and underdeveloped. You must be very pro-active and work outside of your responsiblities if you want to make the most of your time.6

Good benefits...medical 401k match, pension
Bullying, yelling, withholding information pertinent to job function, etc., etc., goes unchecked. At least 3 people in my division were called in before HR on 3+ occasions each for harassment /bullying. Those who filed complaints were the first to be terminated when layoffs hit. The perpetrators are still employed.8Chevron Phillips Chemical Response3y

Pay and benefits. Most of the employees are good people and are supportive. One of the best chemical companies. Very good, very good, very good.
Limited promotional opportunities. The company should look more deeply into issues regarding employee morale to determine if it's truly bitter employees or whether there's a supervisor that's the problem.5

- 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.
