    Pros

    As a subsidiary of Koch Industries, there are many opportunities for movement between companies both laterally and vertically.
    Benefits are comparable to most companies.

    Cons

    They preach the 10 Guiding Principles but the practice is only when it suits their overall plan at the plant level. Recent management changes have not been an improvement. The culture has significantly deteriorated since they brought in refinery folks to manage a chemical plant. News flash - chemical plants don't operate the same as refineries. Their commitment to MBM and the Guiding Principles is only talk. If the company no longer believes in integrity and compliance ( principles 1 and 2) then just say so and stop trying to hide it! Also, remember you're MBM training, there is an order to the Guiding Principles, value creation is not at the top!

    Site level HR staff is barely competent. Turnover has been substantial and staffing is short. It takes at least six months to fill positions, except for HR ones which can be filled in a matter of two weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reset your thinking about the Guiding Principles. Focus on rebuilding employee moral. Learn humility. Line workers and supervisors have more experience with the site than most of you, learn to rely on that experience or you will continue to lose valuable staff.
