    Pros

    Overall CPChem is a good company to work for. They are employee focused and strive to have a good work/life balance. 9/80 work schedule, and training opportunities are decent. Excellent benefits package, generous 401k and pension offerings. As with any company, there are office politics and persnickety managers but ymmv.

    Cons

    CPChem is in the O&G sector but unfortunately compensation for IT roles is not on par with their peers in O&G.

    Solid Company - Bad Work-Home Life Balance

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    9/80 schedule

    Co-workers

    Company growth is currently incredibly great

    Cons

    Micromanagement and back-stabbing of direct reports at mid-level supervision

    Home-Work Life Balance is bad - HR is not your friend if you have any personal issues that keep you from working for even one moment

    Career ladders and opportunities are non-existent for anyone other than Engineers or someone that works internationally

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value experienced employees vs new Engineers - experience and hard work means just as much as a degree

    Compensation for experienced employees needs to be seriously reviewed and updated vs concentrating on how well new college graduates are recruited, compensated with sign-on bonuses, and annual pay

    Pros

    Awesome development program for new engineers. 9/80 work schedule

    Cons

    Less pay then parent companies. Management mandates tasks without considering resources. You'll be working 13hr days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify product lines. Ethylene is too cyclic to depend on.

    Pros

    The growth of this company is outstanding. To get in at the bottom is a great experience. Very family oriented and work life balance is outstanding. Always felt included and respected. I have so many good things to say about this company but not enough time to type it.!

    Cons

    Just the typical cons most businesses are dealing with now. The influx of young talent and mass exit of the experience. The only problem i see if the requirements for joining this company... they should not be so narrow minded to think that just because you have a degree means your the perfect fit for the job. Experience should be considered and take presidence over a degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing and dont loose the family feel of the plant. Its a big challenge with all the changes but stick to the roots. We have a great thing going on now.
