    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 have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are great. The company is striving for safety focus and heading in the right direction.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is an afterthought. Poor communication between units, between management, and between crafts. Morale is very low across the board and while investments are being made in the units, they spend almost nothing on the basic necessities.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with your subordinates and your superiors.

    Pros

    Great company and benefits, the business has a solid growth plan. The business has positioned themselves to be the leader in the Market. They like to run things Lean, which means that there is no growth for employees.

    Cons

    The IT dept lacks vision and technical leadership. The dept is very silo’d and not willing to change to align with new technology. Good place to retire or stay stagnant in your position, positions are managed moves and lateral.

    Advice to Management

    Get more technical leadership and align teams with technology to allow more collaboration and teamwork. HR should set a growth plan for employees to get to the next level.

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

    Pros

    9/80 schedule, location in the Woodlands

    Cons

    Management is clueless. Extreme politics and favoritism is displayed openly. IT Audit leadership was terrible and corrupt until leadership fell apart and were forced to make changes. I have worked at other companies and the stuff that goes on here is just insane. Hostile work environment, auditors were being forced to do things they didn’t believe in. Management doesn’t believe in their iCare program (inclusion and diversity program). I literally felt at one point I didn’t know what to do with so much unethical violations happening in the workplace without fearing for my job.

    Advice to Management

    Do a complete change of leadership and hire competent management that actually care about people and value good employees. Care about the work that is done, many are looking to retire and just turn on the snooze mode. No one wants to ruffle the feathers or make change for the good.

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary, benefit, 9/80, nice office in the Woodlands

    Cons

    No training. You are hired a month after the previous person leaves. You receive no training, no guidance, no documentation. You are just expected to know what to do form day 1.

    As a result, the company is a mess, because nobody knows what they are doing.

    The company calls itself "lean and mean". So, on top of people not knowing what to do, there are also not enough of them.

    "Lean" also means there is no opportunity for advancement.

    "Mean" means that your concerns will be ignored, any criticism will be used against you. You will be expected to work overtime, with no training, and be happy about it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent HR people, for a start. Rework the org structure, hire enough people, and train them!

    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.
