    Pros

    Challenging work, great training/development opportunities. Company has long term mindset both from business and career management perspectives. Huge business so lots of ability to "find your niche" during your career without switching companies.

    Cons

    Long & draining work hours, frustrating hierarchy, systems/metrics abound, unspoken assumption that career is your #1 priority. High risk work environment vs. an office job.

    Advice to Management

    More vacation time or 9/80 schedule would go a long way for employee satisfaction.

    Pros

    Excellent base pay Great benefits on paper Feedback for career and input International opportunities High-impact company Safety-focused Switching roles every 18 months Challenging environment

    Cons

    Peer-versus-peer ranking system Always on call, depending on your role: high potential for terrible work/life balance Military-like hierarchical structure Crawling with type-A competition

    Advice to Management

    Give reports feedback often and think of how to keep the quality and standard for excellence and eliminate incentives that cause the many type-A competitived peers to be cut-throat

    Pros

    Plenty of people to do the job and willing to do things right. The company will make the resources available to do things correctly.

    Cons

    Very specialized in duties. Almost like an assembly line. Very hard to see the big picture of where your job fits into the whole.

    Advice to Management

    Provide the employees some some room to work. While there may be some money saved in putting people in a rabbit hutch, it does not improve efficiency.

    Pros

    Salary and benefit packages are wonderful. Time-off policy is okay. Great company to work for if you are a mechanical or chemical engineer, specially for chemical engineers.

    Cons

    No career path for electrical engineers. Ranking system is flawed because hard work is not taken into account. If you show a perception of doing work (a lot of face-time), your ranking will increase even though you did not output a lot of work. A lot of young Supervisors are very inexperienced so your ranking may decrease if he/she does not adequately recognize or appreciate your hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Repair the ranking system. Build a career path or provide opportunities for employees, who are not chemical engineers. Develop solid Supervisors.
