    Pros

    Welcomes the new generation with energy
    Good Salaries
    Good Benefits

    Cons

    They forget diversity and inclusion, they have done big efforts in this arena, however they are not inclusive at all with the minorities, Hispanics - discrimination based not only in the ethnicity also in the accent of your English -
    Management is crazy.....Micromanage is their culture at least at HQ.
    They have 9/80 work schedule, that does not work for the level of stress that you are exposed to
    Leadership is arrogant and mean
    Their success depends on the gas prices....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the basics needs of the people!

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

    Pros

    Have been able to define and grow my current job. Training has been made available and job and company is growing.

    Cons

    The current job is more than one person can accomplish and help is always "on the way". One day, "on the way" may not be soon enough to stay ahead of the required work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the "new projects" steal all the best talent.

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical as an intern

    Pros

    I had a wonderful experience with this company. Everyone is really friendly and likes their job. They have cohesive and encouraging atmosphere. They are also growing rapidly due to the shale gas boom and it is a great career choice to come work at CPChem.

    Cons

    none that I have noticed for a company of this size

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep expanding to global markets and continue to grow. The safety culture is great and continue to sustain the campaigns for safety as well as diversity and inclusion. I find them to be effective and the employees are willing to always participate.

    I worked at Chevron Phillips Chemical as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Safety conscious, laid back, freedom to work without micromanagement

    Cons

    HR is out of control crazy. They may call you up one day and accuse you of harassing the plant manager (whom you've never called) and tell you to stop at once. When you inform them that they are factually mistaken there seems to be a disconnect. They have absolutely no imagination. Mid-level managers care little for the health of the company. They care only of getting next promotion so they can move to a company with more pay.
    They will only pay 'industry average' but somehow think this will get them the 'best workforce'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid incentives traps. They're starting t pop up.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities available. They'll move you around fast. Building lots in the US.

    Cons

    No technical career ladder, flat organization. Lots of experience leaving the company for better paying companies. Replacing experience with recent college graduates and struggling a bit to get best candidates due to stiff competition from bigger petrochemical competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to hiring and retaining experience. Develop a technical career ladder.
