I have been working at Flint Hills full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Awesome culture, very supportive administration, good salary and benefits. Coworkers are respectful and encouraging. The Hiring process was a bit intimidating but offer was more than I asked. FHR has made great progress with numerous awards for employee and environmental safety. These are stringently enforced to make a great workplace.

Cons

Seems like a large percentage of time is used to placate multiple government agencies with duplicated and occasionally contradictory regulations in the most heavily regulated of industries. FHR somehow manages to do it, albeit at great expense.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work, especially with cleaner ethanol and bio-diesel production.

    I worked at Flint Hills full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were good. I do believe there were other advancement opportunities if you wanted to go forward.

    Cons

    The company promotes its political agenda. With them doing this they are very scared of any government agency and very guarded on who and what can be said to a government official. If you are brought up in this company from the start of your career this may be okay. Someone coming in from the outside that has had experience dealing with government officials and handling items that were not so structured in dealing with government agencies can be very frustrating.

    They have a very flat management style that can result in decisions not being made in a timely fashion. It can take weeks to make a decision on an issue. Individuals in key management positions are scared of change. They do not want to hear an outside opinion even though it is part of their MBM principles.

    The management has a very threatening demeanor and try to manage with intimidation and fear. They have a significant history of terminating people with the response of "your no longer a culture fit with the company". I think this is very standard response from the HR and law department. They usually will give you a large sum of separation package to make you go away and not sue them. This is how they continue to get away with this type of practice and also they consider it as doing a part of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Charles Koch and his key management need to look at their mid-level managers and understand that they always do not follow the MBM principles that are put in place, are afraid to make decisions or risks that will make them look bad. They also need to understand that some of their manager mange with micromanagement, fear and intimidation. If this is the route they want to continue on then I guess that is their choice.
