    Pros

    Great communication up the chain. Everyone is interested in seeing the individual grow and move up. Everyone works together to ensure vacation and days off happen. Everyone works together to achieve goals and standards. It's a great feeling knowing that some of the profits are benefitting charities and cancer research.

    Cons

    At times there are long hours and long days.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the little guys.

    Pros

    Great people/co-workers, top tier pay w/ overtime for engineers, good/great benefits, close to New Orleans and Baton Rouge, operators know and run the plants well, excellent project opportunities, an appropriate amount of red tape

    Cons

    Some operators are bitter about being overworked - especially in turnarounds, nothing else I can think of is really a con. Because the culture and pay are so good, not too many people leave, which leads to fewer career opportunities than other chemical companies.

    Pros

    They really want to help their employees grow into new jobs & meet full potential. Mgr. of my group within our dept is exceptional. Benefits are awesome. No cap on lifetime insurance coverage which is unheard of.

    Cons

    Merger anxiety mainly with the entire Hexion thing going on. Also Huntsman doesn't pay the highest in the industry

    Advice to Management

    Treat older workers much carefully and with respect & break-up cliques in disfunctional depts. Enfore dress code more thoroughly in certain depts.

    Pros

    The team members and managers are all great and work well together. There is a lot of cooperation and communication, and the vast majority (no company is perfect) of the members of the IT team truly care about doing an outstanding job, i.e., you don't get the impression they're just there for the paycheck.

    Cons

    The environment can be a bit political, but not overly so compared with other companies. I did hear a good number of complaints that the pay is less than comparable companies for comparable work. I personally didn't find that to be the case, but it may have been true in some cases.

    Advice to Management

    Some level of politics happens in any business, but try to keep to a minimum the part of that that filters down to the level of the "worker bees." Most of them don't have the time or the inclination to be bothered with it.
