    Lots of office politics and very conservative
    Old fashioned mentality about working remotely

    Plan on being in the same job role for at least 3+ years

    Advice to Management

    Shake the tree and get new blood in these leadership roles. Start transitioning from traditional work paramatters to modern industry standards.

    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.

    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.
