    I worked at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Never missed a paycheck. Worked with some brilliant people in some beautiful locales. Learned new processes and equipment. Led a wonderful, hardworking, very diverse staff.

    Cons

    Human Resources team is very shady. Many promises from the initial job offer were reneged upon after the job was accepted. Laid me off after promising a job upon repatriation.

    Advice to Management

    I was laid off after working 2 successful projects back to back, then being promoted to successfully supervise 2 departments. I gave my all to your company, but in return I was shown 0 loyalty. In order to maintain a quality staff, you must begin to show loyalty, express value towards your employees, and remain true to your promises. I was quite disappointed in my experience with the lack of regard for the human element. I was never given an opportunity to complete an exit interview in order to provide my side of the story. Makes it obvious they don't care about the person or their input.

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A multi-billion dollar company with < 10,000 employees worth as much as competitors with > 30,000 employees, so there is great employee compensation. A high priority on safety allows those whose jobs involve high-risk tasks to feel comfortable and secure. Even in the current economy, there are still hiring opportunities.

    Cons

    Very lean, advancement opportunities are slim-to-none currently. There is no clear-cut career path for advancement, either.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a clear-cut career path for those who are fresh in their career.

    Accessibility to Executives

    Cons

    Big TIme Politics (Especially in IT)

    Promoting employees based on tenure vs. merit
    Work/Life Balance and Diversity programs are a joke (Just look at the leadership team)

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate the current management team and provide more opportunities for career advancement. Stop promoting employees that are "overdue" vs skill set and talent.
