Pros

salary is competitive
bonus program is better than most
401k matching is better than most
great boss and good co-workers
good safety programs
fantastic reliability in manufacturing

Cons

IT is rabid regarding security, requiring work-arounds
Doesn't seem to be much of a long-term strategy
Still seems to be a lot of baggage from bankruptcy
Conflict adverse with individuals
More likely to change policies than manage performance

Advice to Management

Embrace 21st Century
Treat employees as adults, instead of children
Embrace common employee retention programs like flex schedules
Trust your employees and come down hard on just those who break the rules

    Respect your employees as professionals and have a more methodically documented training for various procedures

    Pros

    The company is well positioned in the market, with excellent vertical integration, and many talented people. With shell gas influenced price competitiveness LYB is doing the right things well ahead of competition.

    Cons

    In this aggressive talent focused market LYB has been slow to respond to competitive changes in salary. New HR leadership is trying to make course corrections, but there is strong resistance from some of the top leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Don't loose focus on the people making things happen.
