    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

    Pros

    Good pay for most positions, good location, nice campus

    Cons

    This is a very “who you know type of workplace.” The managers will pretend to care about you but in fact they are micromanaging you to make sure that you are doing their job. They utilize a program called ICARE which is what they sell as, keeping the work place "diverse" and "inclusive" but in reality, it’s used to work against you. The program allows them an ultimate avenue to fire you and they have no qualms firing people for no cause, and HR never has your best interest at heart. There are certain department heads with enormous egos and when you test it you will be removed, so you need to learn to avoid them at all cost. Another program they use is their “hotline” to file complaints, WORST mistake anyone can do is use this. HR will immediately investigate the complaint, but they will investigate the person lodging the complaint more and if they can get away with it, they will fire that employee over the one violating policy. Why, because for them it’s easier to replace a “worker” rather than a manager. The legal department will do what it takes to provide an avenue to “justify” releasing the complainant, even to the point of lying or using policies that don’t even apply. They even go as far as bragging that they have the EEOC in their pocket. So, they never really worry when employees file EEOC complaints because they know they are going to win and believe when I say, they are not always in the right. This place is very cut throat, backstabbing and toxic and the best part about it, is they know this but will do everything to pretend it’s not happening. Best advice, if you get hired, learn to be 100% invisible.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your team members with the same respect that you demand and trust that they are there to help. They are team members and not your property.

    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.

    Pros

    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.
