    Pros

    The benefits here are one of the main reasons I came to work here: 980 schedule, 401k with match, pension plan, great health insurance and vacation plan. The work is challenging! I enjoy the people I work with and the culture of the company as well.

    Cons

    We are a lean company. There is a lot of work to be done for the amount of staff.

    I worked at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time

    Pros

    Compensation, location, the sun does shine, occassionally. Leaving the office, each afternoon and going home. If you find incompetence entertaining,... then, this place will entertain you, day after day, after day.

    Cons

    HR is a JOKE. Weak management fails to actually "lead". Toxic employees, usually because of parental/spousal employment with either parent company, are "untouchable". Meetings are routinely held, sans agenda, by incompetent "leaders" (and I'm not joking, here) with no outcome, other than to schedule another meeting. One's 'success' is gauged by the number of meetings, attended. Company continually beats it's chest about "safety", then turns a blind eye when supervisors/managers are seen/reported in direct violation of safety rules. Employees are NOT valued,... just used and let go.

    Advice to Management

    Management is too in-bred and incompetent to actually value any sincere feedback,... it's been tried, ad nauseum. Best advice would be to rid this company of it's management and start anew. Yes,... it's THAT bad.

    Pros

    CPChem is a great company to work for with amazing benefits. The work life balance and training that I receive here is second to none so I don’t see myself leaving this amazing company anytime soon.

    Cons

    I have not run across a con yet, it is truly that great of a company to work for. Not every company is perfect but CPChem does a good job of coming close.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, continue to devote resources to developing, engaging, and retaining the talent pipeline.

    I worked at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time

    Pros

    High salary; attention to safety by most plant managers

    Cons

    Despite USW Union, company had mass lay off operators and mechanics that had been employed over 20 years due to "budget cuts". Safety focus depends on current plant manager. Most PM are there for only two years

    Advice to Management

    In an area prone to hurricanes and storms, release employees early enough to secure their homes and families
