    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time

    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

    I worked at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pension, Employee Incentive Plan and wonderful people to work with. This is a great place for graduate engineers to begin their careers.

    Cons

    Poor Plant Management Leadership. Age bias against women (40+). Vacations are frozen for turnarounds and salary employees are expected to work long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee concerns. When they say "no" and present supporting facts and evidence, it is not insubordination. Remember that it takes more courage to speak up.

    Pay and benefits. Most of the employees are good people and are supportive.
    One of the best chemical companies.
    Very good, very good, very good.

    Cons

    Limited promotional opportunities.
    The company should look more deeply into issues regarding employee morale to determine if it's truly bitter employees or whether there's a supervisor that's the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent with subordinates.
