    Pros

    Relaxed environment, not very stressful. Initial compensation is good compared to other local companies. Entering through the rotations programs gives a good overview of ChE positions.

    Cons

    The company has gone through some major events lately: being sold by GE, acquisition by SABIC, crisis, lay-outs, change of culture, change of manufacturing work structure, now reorganization in R&D.. completely lost track and vision. Unclear future. They strive to realize their products are now comodities, big marketing numbers with current portfolio are dreams.

    Not a company for experts - they lack the departments, resources and recognition. Furthermore, there is no career path if you are not in headquarters, nor any serious development plan. Thus, experienced people left and a lot of the know-how from the past on engineering polymers is now lost.

    Manufacturing sites are plagued with their own "mobs", people that joined early but don't stand to the job; managerial positions are taken forever, and if anything, they just rotate among the same usual suspects. Lots of politics, talking, and little action or progress - this is true company wide.

    Compensation - after a few years, poor, not competitive within the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget the short term, purge the company from former GE-era managers (if they were top-class in GE culture, they cannot fit in SABIC), build a solid company with the foundation of top-class technical expertise.
