I have been working at SABIC full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

At this very moment, I can not see much pro's.
Senior Management is trying to survive with the cost of the people on the work floor, regardless of the quality of the people.

Cons

* Not open atmosphere.
* Every year less and less investment in people.
* Hierarchy is officially taking over the free thinking.
* No more "out of the box" thinking.
* Continuous conflict among departments.
* Only working based on scopes (this is what I do; I will not do anything to help you)
* Conflicting KPI's.
* Appraisals used for punishing people, instead of identifying how to grow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the people. Do not let the middle-senior managers impose their own ideas on the people on the shop floor to keep their bonuses. When you empower and enable the people that actually do the job, you gain more.
Create more open communication.
