    Pros

    The pay and benefits are pretty good. There's a lot of experienced engineers, although more and more are retiring, and good mentorship if you seek it out. There is a lot of structure and many, many procedures for just about everything. Which in my opinion is good. Safety is taken very seriously.

    Cons

    Experienced hires will never move up the corporate ladder as quickly or as far as someone who is hired in right out of college. In this regard, there is a bit of a prejudice against those who hire in as experienced hires. The culture is very serious, stiff, mechanistic, systematic, etc. This might not be a con if you like consistency and a serious culture. However, if you're looking for a company like Google, then this is not your company or industry.

    Advice to Management

    Safety Leadership and Risk Management at this company are great!

    Pros

    Great benefits, money is good, a lot of overtime. No experience needed to be hired as a operator, welder,machinist,lab tech.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership training for first line supervisors, most of them feel they are crippled by the union so they do not implement a discipline program for under achieves.

    Advice to Management

    Move to a DuPont schedule , more vacation throughout the years and base vacation off of the position I.e. Operators get 84 hrs "2 weeks" but are actual only getting one week and 3 days due to the 4 on 4 off schedule.
