    I worked at INEOS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management is flexible and allows you to grow your own job role as you see fit. There is not a lot of micro-management and employees have the freedom to manage their own time.

    Cons

    Very little guidance or defined career ladder for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide employees with more opportunities for advancement. Offer more compensation for those who expand their job responsibilities.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  League City, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in League City, TX

    I have been working at INEOS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, office is NOT located in downtown.

    Cons

    INEOS boasts of being the 3 largest manufacturing company world-wide unfortunately they operate completely separate from the other entities and more along the lines of a Mom and Pop Shop working out of the garage. There are no synergies between local sites much less regionally, nationally or globally. I have taken at least five steps back in my personal growth and development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a consultant to review business practices and process, you would be very surprised to what you may learn. SAP is a wonderful tool utilized by "Best in Class" companies world-wide, learn how to use it and provide employees training, the benefits would be endless!!!
