    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 for 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 ManagementAdvice

    Align the company for strategic synergies

    I have been working at Tronox

    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.
