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

    Pros

    Awesome benefits. Hourly pay is decent. Very strong safety culture. Company is looking to implement new technologies for growth. Any reimbursement due to employees for business expenses are paid promptly. Extra curricular training is made available to employees such as first aid/CPR/AED. In combination with annual Hazwoper training, it gives operators as much (if not more) skills to responding to emergencies than first responders.

    Cons

    Operator advancement is not a priority to upper level management. Hiring process has too many people involved. Too many hurdles for new hires. Implementation of new technologies often lack direction. Implementation and initiation of new directives often lack direction.

    Advice to Management

    As CF grows, it is losing it’s ability to operate efficiently. This is to somewhat be expected as any company grows. However, in the crosshairs of this dilemma are the operating staff. Progression and advancement of personnel should not be overlooked.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits for the area.

    Cons

    Management plays favoritism and lets qualified individuals go. Hard to get hired on, need to know someone in management.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to fight for positions for qualified individuals instead of saying "Sr. Management won't do that" Also supervisors and managers need to stop showing favoritism to individuals that are willing to throw fellow employees "under the bus" to management to make themselves look better.
