    Changing company with some bad corporate departments to work in.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company as a whole has a lot going on. However, a lot of that has turned out to not be good.

    ConsSome departments are great to work in, but not Tax. HR is not on your side, they only support management. Employees get fired for speaking up and out. Multiple former employees have sued for wrongful termination. Work hours have gotten to be insane. Management can be quite rude. There are also several questionable ethical things going on.

    Also, leadership has lied multiple times to the company. They also have turned into too corporate and making a quick profit. The selling and splitting off of assets is starting to get concerning

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees. Follow the ethical standards you promote. Worry about the product and not making a quick profit. Focus on the employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No Advancement, lack of pay raises

    Supervisor (Current Employee) Phila, PA

    Prosnot too many, an ethical company

    Conspay raises capped at no more than 1 or 2 percent. Experienced employees are taken for granted and have no chance for advancement. Instead the "youngies" get all the advancement since they are cheaper. Benefits are horrible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are going to need a mix of young and old in your organization and you need to value the experienced employees equally with the young upstarts.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Profits over People

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Green River, WY

    ProsGlobal company with worldwide opportunities, if you want to live in some of the worst locations.

    ConsLow salaries. Claim to be competitive, but salaries have really slid.
    Poor management, particularly in HR at Green River. A chemical engineer as an HR manager, who has zero people skills, has turned many people, particularly skilled engineers, away. She sides with management, and as a result, has not stood up for strong employees that could make this company great. The turnover has been huge. Her entire department left her, if that gives you any indication of the work environment there.
    Safety record is slipping. Management only cares about the bonuses involved with safety, but they don't put the blame where it belongs, with the workers. Middle managers, who are paid less than union, are the scapegoats.
    If you want to move up, you have to move every 18 months or so, to places you really don't want to live. If you say no, then you are "punished" with lower-level assignments and the silent treatment. You could get put on the night shift for months on end, working overtime without getting overtime pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure you put employee and management advocates in HR and top management positions. Make your salaries more competitive. Instead of letting people walk out the door, figure out what makes them happy and what it takes to keep them happy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
