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

    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 Management

    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!
