Celanese gives engineers the opportunity to grow....without a mentor

Process Engineer (Current Employee)
Narrows, VA

ProsA new process engineer will get projects that other companies would not even give to a 7 year engineer. Lots of growth potential. Good bonus compensation.
Lots of opportunities to try different roles and find the path that you are interested in. Compared to other companies the benefits are above average.

ConsSite management is constantly firefighting due to Corporate guidance. For some the home work balance is not as great (usually by their choice). No mentorship for new engineers. If you do not fit into the culture and don't feel comfortable learning on your own or asking questions this is not the company for you. The performance evaluation structure for bonus is based not upon how well you did, but by how much people like you. High turnover rate especially among the VP of the company ~ 8 left in the past year what does that say?

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the GM 9-box bonus structure. Stop requiring site directors to fire individuals or removing positions based upon one bad year (Acetate GM and countless site directors). Provide a better technical career path as well as initial training for oncoming engineers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    OK

    Applications Engineer (Former Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    I worked at Celanese


    Pros: Good benefits, smart people to learn from. Intellectual growth, business… Cons: Not adapting to global economy very well. Blame other departments rather than loooking at stagnant EU… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
