Pros

Plenty of work hours; emphasis on safety

the employees were micromanaged; Internet access was cut off for employees; training was haphazard at best for most procedures, with no documentation for the exact steps;

Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Operations Manager in Houston, TX

    I have been working at LyondellBasell full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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