    Pros

    Great benefits and training opportunities, the administration building is a modern and well-equipped facility. They even have an on-site fitness room for employees. Engineers have it really good here.

    Cons

    Too much change too fast in systems and processes at the corp level, archaic culture, good ol' boys' mentality in maintenance dept, unionized workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Change corporate culture

    Pros

    Very good wages and benefits. Diverse company, overall growth of the company seems to be on an upward trend. Husky has no issue putting money into its refineries which equals longevity for the Lima refinery.

    Cons

    New strategies in utlizing operators in several areas throughout the plant leave the new operators unprepared for outages and the ability to feel comfortable in their job. They are solely focused on the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on taking advantage of the ideas of your long time employees since there will be about a 30% leaving in the next 5 to 7 years.

    Pros

    They are always looking to expand their products and services in the field of petroleum dispensing products. Development of new products is also key.

    Cons

    I believe there are to many positions that are filled by temporary employees and that these people are sometimes turned over needlessly.

    Advice to Management

    Select a member or two from each department on the floor to train to be "lean ninjas", and have those people teach lean manufacturing to hires.

    Pros

    Good pay with lots of overtime. Opportunity to obtain experience in oil/gas industry good. Training met expectations and needs of company.

    Cons

    HIGHLY political. Company plays favorites. Company cannot get rid of poor workers. Company will not get rid of poor management. Do as I say attitude. Company does not value families or personnel time off and has stated "We pay you well enough for this". They participate in mass punishment when an employee does something wrong. Different areas in plant are treated differently with some unfairly. EXTREMLY poor supervisors whom have been in this work enviroment a long time and have not learned. If you want experience in this industry go somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    I stay out of the politics but when so many employees complain about management, take it more serious. The moral is bad and could be great.
