Current Employee - Process Operator in La Porte, TX

I have been working at LyondellBasell full-time (more than a year)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Engineer in Channelview, TX

    I have been working at LyondellBasell full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at LyondellBasell full-time (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
