    I worked at CF Industries full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Plants and Distribution Facilities provide a very good local work environment. 401 K match up to 6%.

    Cons

    Overly aggressive growth is significantly impacting corporate values and culture. CF Corporate continues to hire from outside, instead of developing and recognizing people internally. Very unhealthy toxic corporate environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Return to more conservative business growth objectives, develop real employee recognition and development programs, promote within, improve corporate morale, rebuild CF's culture.

    I worked at CF Industries full-time

    Pros

    Salary is competitive for area. The 401(k) match percentage is higher than average for area.

    Cons

    The people are two faced. They will say one thing to your face and then say something else to others. With any downturn in the price of nitrogen fertilizer, they let people go from the Company. People they let go have been with the Company 20+ years, which is why senior management is also two faced. Senior management loves to talk about how they care about the people, but it's all talk and no actions. There actions...

      I have been working at CF Industries full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      well established company with great people to work with. Good pay and benefits

      Cons

      The industry is changing - the workforce, the way business is done. etc is all changing. Management is slow to accept that change and to change with it. Hard work is not always recognized and rewarded. Would like to see more advancement of employees versus hiring from outside

      Advice to Management

      Start listening more to employees about the change that they want to see. Go back to having a suggestion/comment box and then take action on those items. There are a lot of people around here that are willing to lead change
