Pros

Compensation is decent, lots to learn and experience if you are willing to create such an environment for yourself.

Cons

Leadership has no long term vision and believes in fix it for now approach with its manufacturing assets as well as human assets. That leaves people being considered a replaceable asset. Managment doesn't seem to have clear goals, and there is very little emphasis on creating new or improving work processes. Culture is elitist, meaning its ok and acceptable for a senior person to treat people in a disrespectful manner.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper leadership needs to be shaken up or replaced. The company is not in bankruptsy anymore and should not be run like one. Develop longer term plans with assets as well as people retention.

    Pros

    Only Pros about this company is "Pay & Benefit"

    Cons

    No supportive training for engineers. Lot of people left the company due to too much work load. They talked about safety all the time but nobody really follow any safety rules. Operators are very lazy and laid back. This is a chemical company runs on high pressure. Pleople will scare you with safety related incidents happened to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire enough amount of people so your employees are not burried under the files
