    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The growth of this company is outstanding. To get in at the bottom is a great experience. Very family oriented and work life balance is outstanding. Always felt included and respected. I have so many good things to say about this company but not enough time to type it.!

    Cons

    Just the typical cons most businesses are dealing with now. The influx of young talent and mass exit of the experience. The only problem i see if the requirements for joining this company... they should not be so narrow minded to think that just because you have a degree means your the perfect fit for the job. Experience should be considered and take presidence over a degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing and dont loose the family feel of the plant. Its a big challenge with all the changes but stick to the roots. We have a great thing going on now.

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in having structures for incoming engineers. Specifically more job shadowing.

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Chevron Phillips offers great compensation, good benefits, work life balance, and has a 401k matching program along with a pension program. In addition, there are benefits which the company inherits from Chevron and Phillips 66.

    Cons

    Geographic location of some sites leaves more to be desired. Performance Management still needs improvements regarding communicating employee's career path in company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most people don't want to live in Borger, TX unless they are from the area. Same goes with Orange, Port Arthur, and Sweeny to an extent.

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical as an intern

    Pros

    I had a wonderful experience with this company. Everyone is really friendly and likes their job. They have cohesive and encouraging atmosphere. They are also growing rapidly due to the shale gas boom and it is a great career choice to come work at CPChem.

    Cons

    none that I have noticed for a company of this size

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep expanding to global markets and continue to grow. The safety culture is great and continue to sustain the campaigns for safety as well as diversity and inclusion. I find them to be effective and the employees are willing to always participate.
