      Pros

      Great Benefits & Pay - 401k - pension - bonus - education reimbursement - 9/80 schedule Company is in growth mode - new plants built and being built in near future.

      Cons

      Inclusive Culture has eroded over past three years. Politics are rampant throughout company. - Positions not given based on merit. - Growth/advancement is based on how well your boss likes you, not necessarily merit. - Non chemical or mechanical engineers have difficulty advancing. Assets have doubled since company inception while headcount has declined. Difficult to be proactive with current staffing levels throughout organization.

      Pros

      9/80 schedule (every other friday is off) is great. You can move to a variety of positions in many different locations early on. Hard working but generally laid-back atmosphere. Lots of training and opportunities to learn from more experienced people once you get used to the system. As of 2013, they are eager to send engineers to Saudi Arabia (other international locations exist as well) if you are interested in living internationally.

      Cons

      Because they are growing so quickly, sometimes the organization and direction for incoming engineers feels sloppy and underdeveloped. You must be very pro-active and work outside of your responsiblities if you want to make the most of your time.

      Pros

      Great benefits and perks, safest company I've ever worked for and they make it their first commitment, help resources are outstanding, great opportunities to advance for employees, management does their best to be fair and the 9/80 schedule is really helpful for having an extra day to get your personal errands and appointments in.

      Cons

      It would be nice if they opened the door a little more as far as applying for job opportunities within the company, internal postings are not available for contractors and you may only apply for positions that are open for the general public, that are often more contractor positions.

      Impressive and growing company

      Pros

      For its industry, CPChem is a smaller company and is extremely profitable as it produces incredible amounts of product. Opportunities for Engineers here are abundant as they continue to grow at a very fast pace. 9/80 schedule is great.

      Cons

      The growth and retirement of baby-boomers could present issues later in the knowledge handover. The pay is above average but not as good as come of its competitors. They lose some young employees simply for higher salaries attained at other jobs...this doesn't need to happen.

      Pros

      9/80 Work Schedule, every other Friday off (when not asked to work it), 401k & pension.

      Cons

      Excessive micromanagement. Little training offered for new employees due to coping with the pace of change. Lack of commitment to career growth to retain the talent the company has. Work life balance is given, but at the price of not advancing in your career. Working unnormal has become an expected normal. There is the sale of Diversity & Inclusion the sale of Career Ladder Growth & Opportunity, but there is no follow through on it.

      Pros

      The people in research groups are excellent. At every level, you will find technical experts who are excited to share their knowledge and help each other succeed. Interesting and exciting projects to work on (when they aren't being killed by the business groups). Great place to start a career. Good salary, 9/80s, benefits.

      Cons

      No interest or incentives for upper business management to develop and support a long term vision/plan. They occupy positions for a year or two at most and take their promotions and leave. Not compatible with new product development. Largely flat organization with career opportunities for chemical engineers only. Everyone else has limited/no career development or progression opportunities.

      Pros

      There are actually a lot of very good people in this company including operators, engineers, supervisors, managers, and executives. 9/80 schedules and total compensation.

      Cons

      Unfortunately, there are some very vindictive senior managers and Executive team members in this company. They pay you to speak the truth and challenge processes to make the company better, but be aware that the repercussions of doing just that can be career ending. Several highly dedicated people left this company because they were targeted and crucified for fighting for what was right in order to try to make this company better. Unfortunately, making improper and inaccurate judgments about people will prevent this average company from becoming a great company.

      Pros

      CPChem is a great place to work. Awesome benefits and fair pay. I feel the work load is well balanced and the 9/80 schedule is great, however I wish they would let you make it up when you have to miss one of your days. They are also very concerned with safety it is embedded in the culture.

      Cons

      The culture is very conservative and I mean fiscally. I've paid for almost all my lunches every time we've gone out on team lunches.
