    I have been working at CF Industries full-time

    Pros

    This is a great job and a great place to work. There is plenty of opportunity and support from management to develop and learn. The people are fantastic and everyone is eager to help out. I have yet to have a boring day and very few of them have been overly stressful and the schedule is flexible.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of cons in my job, especially when I compare them to previous jobs I have had at other companies. There is more than enough work for everyone and sometimes keeping track of everything becomes a task in itself. Sometimes the paperwork gets in the way of the operation.

    I have been working at CF Industries full-time

    Pros

    Having every other Friday off is great. The people I work with are great. I learn something new at CF on a daily basis. There are always new challenges. CF also has a safety first attitude which, makes the people feel safe as well.

    Cons

    Juggling all the capital projects we are tasked with can be a challenge. Knowing which job or project is more important at the time. Dealing with vendors can sometimes be a drag. Reading peoples minds can be a challenge as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at CF Industries full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This company has a down home feel. People actually care about their jobs, the community, and everyone else. When people actually care about their jobs and the livelihood of others, their work ethic and safety both increase. People are sincere when they ask how you are doing or how your family is. In an environment that has the potential to be dangerous, this company is very safety minded and it shows. CF is an all around great place to work. Compensation is great with benifits.

    Cons

    My only regret/con is that I worked at other companies prior to this one and that I have not been here longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep up what you are doing. This company is headed in the right direction.
