    Pros

    Constantly growing company with good corporate culture. Always a new challenge (in a good way), never boring. Good people, good benefits. Upper management is very open to employees and their feedback
    Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Occasionally may have to work longer hours but very flexible and accommodating if you have to leave early.

    Pros

    Westlake is a lean company that offers employees the chance to wear many different hats, giving employees the opportunity to expand their skill set and knowledge. If you are a self-motivated person then this is the right company for you.

    Cons

    Because it is a lean company, there is always work to be done. It is not a place where you can coast by.

    I have been working at Westlake Chemical

    Pros

    Westlake is a very lean organization that provides the opportunity to take on new and exciting responsibilities. It is in conservative growth mode which positions it well in this rollercoaster economy. Recently it was ranked the Company of the Year in 2011 by the Houston Chronicle.

    Cons

    There is always alot of work to be done because it is a lean organization. This is not a place for people who want to hide in a cube.
