Awesome family, unfortunately values not always reflected at local levels.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Huntsman Corp full-time for more than 10 years

ProsOwnership, Huntsman family, strong financially

ConsLocal mgmt not always in line with core values of company. Makes a real difference what location you are in.

Advice to Senior ManagementStronger emphasis on internal growth and development especially from within technical ranks. When most mid level leadership coming in from outside thats a problem.

Transforming into a single company with a single mindset

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Huntsman Corp full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood benefits package
Base pay in line with peer companies
Overall its a good company to work for if you have experience and are not looking to grow very far - many openings for management positions are filled from outside

ConsThe career development process is improving but still lacks maturity and place more emphasis on self management
Its a large company but cross divisional movement is not very common so opportunities are limited.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Work under the directive of a scientist to develop new chemicals.

Chemical Technician (Current Employee)
The Woodlands, TX

I have been working at Huntsman Corp

ProsWork isn't too difficult; management isn't breathing down our throat; Safety is a huge culture at Huntsman; Location is very nice, as is the facility.

ConsThere is a superior attitude by management and upward movement is very limited. The bonuses and pay aren't great... usually at/below inflation rates, unless you get a promotion (about 1x/5 years)

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the raises for those who deserve it and don't prevent technicians from moving up to a job with more responsibilities.
