    The benefits are good and the 9/80 schedule is good, but you’ll end up working more hours than the 80.

    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

    Great benefits, flex time, company employee events, location, Some departments are better than others

    Cons

    Very political, micro managing, revolving door especially in the legal department, higher up assistants are down right bullies and management allows it. Flex time is not worth the stress and final burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Management is the problem; they allow bad employees to do away with the good ones.

    Pros

    Can't get fired for incompetence. If you like to talk the talk, but can't walk the walk, this is a great place.

    Cons

    Mentally stuck in the 1980's some 1950's. No room for career advancement if you are not a Donald Trump supporter. Bait and switch with job duties without a raise in wages for hard to find skillsets.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all your IT people and contract the work to CompuCom. All the system wide crashes are due to incompetence.

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

    Pros

    Decent salary and bonuses. The hourly operators and maintenance personnel are top notch and will go out of the way to help you if you need something.

    Cons

    HR is less than useless. If you ask a question, they will talk all the way around it without ever answering the question -- Upper management encourages retaliation if you ask the hard questions. Management still uses forced ranking during evaluations so even if everyone in a dept is doing well, the Supervisors are required to rank someone or multiple employees depending on dept size as needing improvement. If you're given an assignment, heaven help you if you get sick and don't make the deadline -- you are likely to pay the price with your job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving lip service to the policy of work / life balance and look at everything before disciplining an employee.

    Pros

    Welcomes the new generation with energy
    Good Salaries
    Good Benefits

    Cons

    They forget diversity and inclusion, they have done big efforts in this arena, however they are not inclusive at all with the minorities, Hispanics - discrimination based not only in the ethnicity also in the accent of your English -
    Management is crazy.....Micromanage is their culture at least at HQ.
    They have 9/80 work schedule, that does not work for the level of stress that you are exposed to
    Leadership is arrogant and mean
    Their success depends on the gas prices....

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the basics needs of the people!

    Pros

    9/80 work schedule, Benefits package

    Cons

    Unskilled management, HQ location is the worst place to work. They roll out fake employee opinion survey, supposed to be anonymous, but they with their vendor deliver the survey with an individual IP address and password. They pretent to be a Best place to work, so far from that, we they have not defined core values. No training, no development, culture of punishment, no inclusion. At the of each week the only thing that you can say is " I survived" even with the 9/80. Too bad CPChem

    Advice to Management

    go back to the basics
