    I worked at Sunoco Chemicals full-time

    Pros

    Management was good not micromanaging. They let you do your work with minimal interruptions. Salary was great and benefits were really good. Enjoyable experience

    Cons

    Lots of work heaped on you with minimal help. Deadlines were quick and changed often. You just need to go with the flow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While management is good I believe there needs to be more emphasis on training and development. Lots of good people with little knowledge.

    Pros

    Interesting operations. Management had good ideas, until the intent to sell the division.

    Cons

    Company planning to sell this division. Many layoffs. A loss to the community.

    Pros

    -Good Pay, especially for new hires

    Cons

    -Standardized policies (Hard to get management to think outside the box)
    -Job satisfaction depends on your group and manager, some very good ones some very bad ones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to change

    I have been working at Sunoco Chemicals

    Pros

    Sunoco has been a relatively stable company in the recent past, and has diversified in chemicals. Sunoco has worked to improved the business position of the chemicals business. Sunoco has provided challenging and rewarding projects. Employees are loyal to the company, and are commited to Sunoco's strategies. Sunoco is beginning to engage employees better than in the past.

    Cons

    The employee population is not as ethnically diverse as some other companies. Communication within groups and between groups needs to improve, and interactions between business units need to increase. Sunoco does not provide enough opportunities for "rank and file" employees to provide input and feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sunoco needs to improve communications between the business units, and from upper management.

    I have been working at Sunoco Chemicals

    Pros

    Opportunities to advance are there.

    Cons

    Sunoco thought they could sell the business so they stopped trying to run it. This means a lot of the plant systems are falling apart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either get senior managment that has a manufacturing background or sell the business
