    Pros

    Slightly better than average pay scale and benefits.

    Cons

    Horrible management, no clear direction, no appreciation for dedicated employees. Little, to no opportunity to recieve training or advance in the company. Upper management at the plant level and above was all lipservice and broken promises. They are running the facility I worked at into the ground with no long term vision.

    I have been working at Tronox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good 401K contributions. They match up to 6% plus give an additional 6% on top of that with 100% vestment from day 1. The health benefits aren't bad. You get a 3rd week of vacation at the 5 year mark. People are very nice in general. Very layed back work environment.

    Cons

    Understaffed in key areas. Some people in leadership positions who are under qualified and incompetent. Lack of any continuing education or 6 sigma training. Very disorganized engineering efforts. Too soft on lazy or incompetent engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Need to staff up in key areas like the controls group. Need to hire managers and engineers based on merit and qualifications instead of just trying to make HR happy.

    I worked at Tronox full-time

    Pros

    Global focus. Lots to do. Keeps you busy. Lots to learn. Very good benefits.

    Cons

    Unstable, unprofitable, poor culture. Still several different companies owned centally. Not a friendly culture.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employees; be fair

    Pros

    Great benefits! The employees based in OKC are good, friendly people.

    Cons

    The company HQ relocated to just outside NYC and built a new executive team (CEO through VPs). Let's just say the East Coast big-city management style hasn't been warmly received.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the needs of the company as a whole and not just from a revenue-generation standpoint.

    I have been working at Tronox as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really smart, nice people, great to work with and had a lot of opportunity for upward movement within the company.

    Cons

    Similar to other oil-industry companies in that things are done a certain way. Nevertheless, a great work environment with awesome people.

    Advice to Management

    Align the company for strategic synergies

    Pros

    Tronox provides good benefits to both the employee and their families. Sick leave and vacation polices are very good - based on years of experience. Some managers do allow for comp time when you have worked long weeks due to not paying overtime. Tronox provides a 401K match and plans to payout a bonus program in 2012 for the 2011 performance.

    Cons

    The downside at working with Tronox is the employee structure. With the current setup, there is not much room for advancement for Process Engineers. Most moves within the plant are only lateral moves. There are few leadership building type roles within the current structure of the plant. When the leadership roles do become available, interviews are not conducted for the jobs - they appointed by site leadership positions. Tronox does not provide cell phones to the process engineers but do expect you to be available at all time through personal cell phones.
