    Current Employee - Process Engineer in Port Arthur, TX

    I have been working at Motiva Enterprises full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits (same as Shell)- 9/80, purchased vacation, health/dental/financial

    Cons

    You will have to deal with the Old Guard of Southeast Texas and the grand standing of those in management or those who aspire to be management. Training for engineers is muddled and lacks adequate mentors and supervision. Disciplines do not have clear boundaries for work duties. Some operations personnel are frankly inept or hard-headed (or both).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more flexibility and mobility from site to site. Do not limit your employees careers by keeping them at the same site. Set the bar higher in order to hire more competent operators.

    I worked at Motiva Enterprises

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent at Motiva and it's a great place to work. I enjoyed my time working there and enjoyed a 9/80 schedule.

    Cons

    Some of the managers at Motiva were not skilled at providing a good mentoring especially when there was not a well established movement plan for the particular business or service that your job resided in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should look for and actively encourage those employees who show the potential to grow through work output and willingness to take on and excel at challenges placed before them.
