    Cons

    Need to be comfortable working in private equity. Private equity is different but can be exciting. You need to understand you are IT there is no large organization that will come in and save you. A person has to believe the companies performance depends on them. There is a lot to be done but we are working on more each day.

    Pros

    Culture and small plant make this a great place to work.

    Lower pay than other plants in the area by 2-3 dollars an hour. Atmosphere of this plant more than makes up for this shortcoming.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Cornerstone Chemical full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cornerstone is a great place to start and end your career. The compensation and benefits are below average for a Process Operator in Louisiana but the atmosphere makes up for it.

    Cons

    Very low starting pay compared to other chemical manufacturing plants and refineries in the area. The plant is owned by an investment firm and not a large corporate company like most other chemical plants in the area. Operator Trainee's start as packaging technicians at $18/hour and have to wait 6-8 months before bidding into an Operator job in a production unit.
