    I worked at LyondellBasell full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company is in a very good position to continue strong profit growth in the US due to differential low feed stock prices compared to the rest of the world. Some plant level leadership support interpersonal skills growth and work life balance.

    Cons

    Senior leadership appears to believe that high performance cannot be achieved without creating fear at all levels of the organization. Creativity and appropriate financial risk taking are severely stifled as a result. High quality staff are also leaving and the company is struggling to hire replacements as it is perceived as a poor place to work by professionals outside the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    High performance can be achieved in a balanced work environment.

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

    Pros

    Current safety culture is good but losing steam. I'm afraid we are headed for another catastrophic accident.

    Cons

    Very high turnover among management and hourly employees. Benefits package not competitive with companies equal to ours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just ask employees about what is driving poor morale and ignore them. Listen and make changes, increase 401K match, reinstate retirement plan to pre bankruptcy calculations.
