    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.

    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!

    I worked at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (More than 8 years)

    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

    Most people want to do the right thing. Don't always expect your employees to try and cheat. Listen to the people who make the plastic more than the people who count the beans.

    I worked at Chevron Phillips Chemical as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Safety culture seems real. Co-workers are quite helpful. work schedule is easy.

    Cons

    Not a good place to stand out. The "go get-em" mentality is actively discouraged. Go with the flow, don't make waves, and don't offer any ideas that will require a change to the status quo. Money is made by the process, so it is not in management's best interest to alter anything. Middle management is quite happy with mediocrity (Long lunch breaks, 10 minutes late to work every day, stand around talking, mediocre reports with poor speeling, etc). If you don't hide your drive for success, you'll be viewed as a threat. HR will give you instructions like "Call us in two weeks to discuss future employment" and then they will call you on the phone accusing you of harassing the plant for phone calls that you didn't make. Can you spell "Mom-and-Pop-shop"

    The Future - CPChem recruits my school heavily, but most of the good students are steering clear of HR abuse while all the poor students are hoping to work there so they can get paid to be lazy - they actually say this!

    Advice to Management

    Of all companies those with growth aspirations can least afford to keep mediocre performers. Mediocre performers stunt the growth of the company, of its people, and of its profits.

    Pros

    Just two years ago with the past plant Manager things were very positive. As a current employee not any "Pros" to report

    Cons

    In and out management.
    No conitnuity.
    Promoting experienced employees is very limited.
    All about the 'Degree"
    Company policies such as "No Harassment from Management' is allowed at the Pasadena plant!

    Advice to Management

    The Pasadena Plant has many employees that would bend over backwards for the Plant. When employees with many years of experience are passed up for promotion and a engineer with no experience is hired right out of school to take a leadership role, problems soon arise." Remember", there once was a time when an employee could work their way up to a plant manager based on experience, knowledge and work ethics. "Remember" these plants were the foundation for what we have today!! Imagine a CEO without experience hired and employees with experience not promoted? Yeah you would have problems too!!
