    Pros

    Welcomes the new generation with energy
    Good Salaries
    Good Benefits

    Cons

    They forget diversity and inclusion, they have done big efforts in this arena, however they are not inclusive at all with the minorities, Hispanics - discrimination based not only in the ethnicity also in the accent of your English -
    Management is crazy.....Micromanage is their culture at least at HQ.
    They have 9/80 work schedule, that does not work for the level of stress that you are exposed to
    Leadership is arrogant and mean
    Their success depends on the gas prices....

    Pros

    9/80 work schedule, Benefits package

    Cons

    Unskilled management, HQ location is the worst place to work. They roll out fake employee opinion survey, supposed to be anonymous, but they with their vendor deliver the survey with an individual IP address and password. They pretent to be a Best place to work, so far from that, we they have not defined core values. No training, no development, culture of punishment, no inclusion. At the of each week the only thing that you can say is " I survived" even with the 9/80. Too bad CPChem

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most people want to do the right thing. Don't always expect your employees to try and cheat. Listen to the people who make the plastic more than the people who count the beans.

    I worked at Chevron Phillips Chemical as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Safety culture seems real. Co-workers are quite helpful. work schedule is easy.

    Cons

    Not a good place to stand out. The "go get-em" mentality is actively discouraged. Go with the flow, don't make waves, and don't offer any ideas that will require a change to the status quo. Money is made by the process, so it is not in management's best interest to alter anything. Middle management is quite happy with mediocrity (Long lunch breaks, 10 minutes late to work every day, stand around talking, mediocre reports with poor speeling, etc). If you don't hide your drive for success, you'll be viewed as a threat. HR will give you instructions like "Call us in two weeks to discuss future employment" and then they will call you on the phone accusing you of harassing the plant for phone calls that you didn't make. Can you spell "Mom-and-Pop-shop"

    The Future - CPChem recruits my school heavily, but most of the good students are steering clear of HR abuse while all the poor students are hoping to work there so they can get paid to be lazy - they actually say this!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Of all companies those with growth aspirations can least afford to keep mediocre performers. Mediocre performers stunt the growth of the company, of its people, and of its profits.

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical

    Pros

    Just two years ago with the past plant Manager things were very positive. As a current employee not any "Pros" to report

    Cons

    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!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Pasadena Plant has many employees that would bend over backwards for the Plant. When employees with many years of experience are passed up for promotion and a engineer with no experience is hired right out of school to take a leadership role, problems soon arise." Remember", there once was a time when an employee could work their way up to a plant manager based on experience, knowledge and work ethics. "Remember" these plants were the foundation for what we have today!! Imagine a CEO without experience hired and employees with experience not promoted? Yeah you would have problems too!!
