    overall, an acceptable long term position in a thriving company.

    Mechanical Integrity Lead Inspector (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    Prospros would be the benefits, bonuses, compensation, working together with other supervisors to insure the most productive path forward

    Conscons would be some members of upper management, the lack of discipline handed out, when expectation levels are not met employees receive no reprimand

    Not at all concerned with the laborers

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood pay, benefits comparable to other refineries

    ConsNo loyalty to long term employees. No connect between management and the actual labor force. No support to good employees, only negative feedback. HR involvement in micro-managing issues that should be handled by supervisors. No sense of team-building or working towards employee morale. Everything micromanaged down to the bottom line on money. High profit plant does nothing to boost employee morale or encourage employee loyalty. Employee bonus program tied to loss-time injuries, which means everyone can be penalized for one person's misstep.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe take a look at reverse discrimination in some of your plants. Have HR get off the micro-management train and instead work on promoting employee relations. Have engineers get outside and involved with the labor force to see that theory doesn't always translate into a working idea.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stay away, they don't reward any longevity

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Ingleside, TX

    ProsComparable employee benefits to other refineries in the area. Starting pay is a bit lower than comparable companies, but still pretty good.

    ConsHR is useless. They do nothing to help their employees make heads or tails of benefits. They do not take the time to get to know their employees and anything about them. They make rash decisions based solely on the bottom line of money, with no regard to loyalty to long-term employees and their commitment to the job. They randomly make judgement calls to one employee but not the other employees with the same issues. There is no consistency in punishment or rules across the lines of employment. Engineers do not get out in the units to learn about the actual day-to-day runnings of the units, only try to implement their theories without knowing they will or won't work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart considering that your employees are actual humans and make decisions accordingly. Quit letting the bottom line dictate all policy and know that having good employee morale makes employees much more likely to want to do well for your company. Quit taxing employees on frivolous gifts that weren't asked for nor wanted.

    Micromanaging and penny pinching

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsPeople are generally nice. Good locations. Profit sharing, Benefits are generally competitive. Five sites in area so room to move latterally.

    ConsVERY micromanaging and cost obsessed. Senior management tends to make unilateral uninformed decissions. Arrogant at times. Very tactical organization with no vision.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop using chemicals sites as a cash cow and invest in staffing and compensating your people as well as improving your plants, Promote an environment of teamwork and not frightened, blind obediance to senior management.

    Not a good long term career choice

    Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee) Deer Park, TX

    ProsNormally a 40 hour work week, though lots of unplaned plant outages
    Convenient to major highways makes for easy transportation

    ConsSpend no money on training for employees
    Constantly micromanaged
    No opportunity for career advancement
    Lots of employee turnover
    Huge disconnect between people in the admin building and the plant

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to invest in your employees in order keep them.
    Management needs to get out of their office and go out in the plant more.
    Get input from the plant before spending capital budget.
