Pros

Good pay, benefits and overtime prior to upcoming turnaround

Cons

Cut throat operators, 'old timers' don't like change, management is not in touch with reality of unit, training is terrible.

Advice to Management

create a functional training program and have it implemented for everyone, not have 5 different ways of doing things.

    Pros

    I have worked for 2 other companies before coming to LYB 2 years ago. Things I like:
    - The best focus on safety I have ever seen. GoalZERO is great and is working
    - We get the resources we need to run the plants reliably and safely
    - Career opportunities - there are numerous plant expansions creating all kinds of new jobs
    - Top management clearly wants the company to be the best
    -Bonuses every year have been 30-60% above target, reflecting the company's good performance

    Cons

    There are some people in the company that were here before bankruptcy that just have trouble making the culture change. Trust me, I've seen the other side in other companies. The company is much more performance driven today and is not a place for people that want to sit back and have a party. The company is for people that want to work hard and win - that's why I like it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving hard on Operational Excellence - this is making us the safest company but is also making us very reliable and generating good revenue. And thanks for your strong leadership on Safety - it shows every day and we very much appreciate it.

    Pros

    Plenty of work hours; emphasis on safety

    Cons

    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 Management

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