    A great place to work, at the plant level. Avoid corporate HQ

    I worked at NOVA Chemicals full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    At the plant level:
    Great work atmosphere
    People friendly and easy to work with
    Great pay and benefits
    Active in the local community
    At corporate HQ (Pittsburgh, PA):
    Morale much lower
    Much more cutthroat political games

    Cons

    Bloated upper management
    Too much bureaucracy.
    Too much time spent on the defining the "process", not enough on getting results. As a result, many good projects die because they become too complicated and expensive to implement.
    Some in the Canadian management show a clear anti-American bias.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have been told by every financial analyst that Nova Chemicals is too top-heavy. Start listening and trim the fat. There is no need for one department to have 5 directors!

    I worked at NOVA Chemicals full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I learned many skills in various software tools and I am certain that will benefit me throughout my career.

    Cons

    Cubicle office setting creates hard to function in ventilation. I think and feel the leadership styles needing upgrade in the professional manner.
