Intellectually stimulating and interesting but increasingly bureaucratic and less nimble than in the past

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsInteresting and stimulating work as part of the global petrochemical scene
A company facing many complex challenges and good growth opportunities
Willing to take risks
Can be innovative

ConsComplex corporate politics
Increasingly bureaucratic
Over centralisation
Senior appointments sometimes difficult to understand and better candidates are often overlooked
Very slow to stop projects once it becomes clear they are not feasible or there are better alternatives

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are too many time consuming and costly initiatives
More focus on a clear and compelling strategy
Review and simplify the multiple reviews and committees involved in project approvals
Cull projects which are not feasible sooner. Significant money and scarce resources have been expended on project evaluations when it is evident to team members the project is not viable or there are better alternatives.
More focus on strategy and innovation and less on executing a list of projects
