    I worked at Huntsman Corp full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    As mentioned, it's a great location. Friendly atmosphere and overall great working environment. The businesses are agile and able to adapt quickly to market changes. The company is throwing efforts to make the workplace even more welcoming. Huntsman itself is doing well and has a great future ahead.

    Cons

    Cost savings initiatives are understood but "quick" decisions have cost many long time staff members their positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff has a whole seems to be overwhelmed leading to bad decisions and lowered morale.

    Pros

    Ownership, Huntsman family, strong financially

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Huntsman Corp full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great working conditions in a rather modern facility. Cafeteria on site. Located within 3 miles of Interstate 45.

    Cons

    Management is somewhat directionless but is working on improvement. Lack of advancement within the Advanced Materials division. Other divisions seem not so bad. Pay is somewhat below average for the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen the purse strings. With Exon and Shell moving in to the area, people will be inclined to test the water for new opportunities.

    Pros

    Great family values, wonderful benefits, annual bonuses, great overall culture. I never had any issues working from home to be with sick children or taking time off as needed.

    Cons

    If you come in with a low salary, it's nearly impossible to get pay that is equivalent to coworkers doing identical work.

    Pros

    Good 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

    Cons

    The 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.

    Current Employee - Chemical Technician in The Woodlands, TX

    I have been working at Huntsman Corp

    Pros

    Work 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.

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

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