    Pros

    9/80 schedule, location in the Woodlands

    Cons

    Management is clueless. Extreme politics and favoritism is displayed openly. IT Audit leadership was terrible and corrupt until leadership fell apart and were forced to make changes. I have worked at other companies and the stuff that goes on here is just insane. Hostile work environment, auditors were being forced to do things they didn’t believe in. Management doesn’t believe in their iCare program (inclusion and... diversity program). I literally felt at one point I didn’t know what to do with so much unethical violations happening in the workplace without fearing for my job.

    Advice to Management

    Do a complete change of leadership and hire competent management that actually care about people and value good employees. Care about the work that is done, many are looking to retire and just turn on the snooze mode. No one wants to ruffle the feathers or make change for the good.

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salary, benefit, 9/80, nice office in the Woodlands

    Cons

    No training. You are hired a month after the previous person leaves. You receive no training, no guidance, no documentation. You are just expected to know what to do form day 1. As a result, the company is a mess, because nobody knows what they are doing. The company calls itself "lean and mean". So, on top of people not knowing what to do, there are also not enough of them. "Lean" also means there is no... opportunity for advancement. "Mean" means that your concerns will be ignored, any criticism will be used against you. You will be expected to work overtime, with no training, and be happy about it.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Believe in your people, trust their performance history, don't penalize for speaking the truth and be willing to recognize the vindictive nature of some of your senior leaders.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Continue trying to retain good people and hire experienced workers. Be careful not to pigeon-hole new guys in a role they can't escape just because there is a company need.
