    Pros

    Work/Life balance (better just recently); flexible hours

    Cons

    Loved working there first few years; morale changed dramatically recently; poor management; micro-managed by Executives; very hostile environment; disrespect; horrible raises

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate your Executive Team and listen to the people that are actually doing the work. RESPECT is key to keeping your hard working staff.

    I worked at CF Industries full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    I have been working at CF Industries full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pros for CF are in the rear view mirror. A lot of change in past two years that have not benefited the company, it's employees or shareholders.

    Cons

    Poor growth decisions have cost the company a lot of money. Moral is down, turnover at an all time high. Used to have very limited turnover. Not the same company I loved for years. Prior CEO ran a company that performed like a well oiled machine and people were appreciated. Now only Sr Mgmt is rewarded (read info online regarding their salaries) and many of them should be gone for poor business decisions and putting...

    Advice to Management

    Sr Mgmt is an old boys club and that does not cut it in today's times. Shareholders are going to bring more pressure for us to move in the right direction. Be more transparent and stop hiring people like the CIO, that bring artificial value. Hold Upper Management accountable for the downturn of what was a great company.
