    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    9/80 schedule (every other friday is off) is great. You can move to a variety of positions in many different locations early on. Hard working but generally laid-back atmosphere. Lots of training and opportunities to learn from more experienced people once you get used to the system. As of 2013, they are eager to send engineers to Saudi Arabia (other international locations exist as well) if you are interested in living internationally.

    Cons

    Because they are growing so quickly, sometimes the organization and direction for incoming engineers feels sloppy and underdeveloped. You must be very pro-active and work outside of your responsiblities if you want to make the most of your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in having structures for incoming engineers. Specifically more job shadowing.

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical

    Pros

    9/80 Work Schedule, every other Friday off (when not asked to work it), 401k & pension.

    Cons

    Excessive micromanagement. Little training offered for new employees due to coping with the pace of change. Lack of commitment to career growth to retain the talent the company has. Work life balance is given, but at the price of not advancing in your career. Working unnormal has become an expected normal. There is the sale of Diversity & Inclusion the sale of Career Ladder Growth & Opportunity, but there is no follow through on it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not hinder employees who do not want to work constantly from growing in their careers. Stop talking a big talk to develop current employees, but ulitmaltely take contradicotry actions. Develop a better training for new employees to prevent thier being set up for failure. Hire more people to accomodate the rate of growth.

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical

    Pros

    9/80 work schedule (every other Friday off), 401k profit sharing and contribution matching, pension, high salary relative to other engineering fields, job stability, relocation compensation

    Cons

    Work is not very exciting or challenging, guidance for new employees is lacking, a few of the locations are in "undesirable" locations (Borger, Orange, Port Arthur)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A few managers are more concerned with their work than actually managing their employees

    Expertise of Chevron and Phillips 66 with the feel of a much smaller company

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Chevron Phillips offers great compensation, good benefits, work life balance, and has a 401k matching program along with a pension program. In addition, there are benefits which the company inherits from Chevron and Phillips 66.

    Cons

    Geographic location of some sites leaves more to be desired. Performance Management still needs improvements regarding communicating employee's career path in company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most people don't want to live in Borger, TX unless they are from the area. Same goes with Orange, Port Arthur, and Sweeny to an extent.
