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

    Pros

    great co-workers who were very helpful to help me learn the ropes of being operator since i was a Co-Op

    Cons

    not knowning that the grades to get into the Co-Op posiiton would hold me back from getting hired on full timem even tho my job performance was outstanding from what the operators told me.

    Advice to Management

    More communication with the Co-Ops

    I have been working at Chevron Phillips Chemical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A multi-billion dollar company with < 10,000 employees worth as much as competitors with > 30,000 employees, so there is great employee compensation. A high priority on safety allows those whose jobs involve high-risk tasks to feel comfortable and secure. Even in the current economy, there are still hiring opportunities.

    Cons

    Very lean, advancement opportunities are slim-to-none currently. There is no clear-cut career path for advancement, either.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a clear-cut career path for those who are fresh in their career.

    no career development unless you are a Chem E

    Pros

    For its industry, CPChem is a smaller company and is extremely profitable as it produces incredible amounts of product. Opportunities for Engineers here are abundant as they continue to grow at a very fast pace. 9/80 schedule is great.

    Cons

    The growth and retirement of baby-boomers could present issues later in the knowledge handover. The pay is above average but not as good as come of its competitors. They lose some young employees simply for higher salaries attained at other jobs...this doesn't need to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Continue trying to retain good people and hire experienced workers. Be careful not to pigeon-hole new guys in a role they can't escape just because there is a company need.
