    I worked at CF Industries full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent and opportunities for professional development are reasonable

    Cons

    Company no longer has any integrity. People are promoted because it looks good on paper but they have no relevant experience pertaining to their position. They claim safety is #1. So than why are people in charge that no nothing about real world process safety.Putting a safety supervisor with no operational knowledge in charge of an anhydrous ammonia terminal is reckless and will eventually get someone injured or worse.
    People that do care and want to do the right thing, are bulldozed by the bureaucracy and will eventually have no morale and cease to care about the work that they do. This in turn feeds the endless cycle of negativity prevalent throughout this company. Which is painfully evident by the employment revolving door. If you are a hard worker and care about your work. AVOID CF Industries

    Advice to Management

    First of all clean house of all middle and upper management people including the CEO, Tony Will, he does not care about the employees that work there. Also he’s not looking out for the best interests of the stock holders. There is rampant waste within this company.
    The company motto is Do It Right. The running joke within the company is Do It Right—The Third Time.
    Most projects have to be re-done because issues that were pointed out in the planning stages by the employees doing the work, are ignored.
    Second, start listening to the employees actually performing the work. Not superintendents, or supervisors, not the political answers that they provide.
      Third, there needs to be more accountability for managers. They should be required to demonstrate there knowledge prior to advancement. Preferably by someone above them that actually knows what’s going on.
    Fourth, it’s real difficult to manage anything from the corporate office in your cubicle because let’s be honest. You don’t know what’s going on in the field. Maybe going into the field would solve this???

    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.
