    Pros

    The people generally were good people who tried hard to do their jobs well. I enjoyed working with the majority of them.

    Cons

    Decisions by senior management didn't make much sense at times. There were a series of 'temporary CEOs' who were only there to take the company to sale.

    I worked at Constar International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    most of the other employees feel your pain on the way they screw everyone

    Cons

    well i had a supervisor grip me up, when i told him to remove his hands from my person or id remove them as he was jeopardizing my well being, he put me on report. the same said supervisor is still currently there, he also rewrote every employee review at my termination meeting in front of me, (the termination meeting was called because of a clerical error that he caused claiming i called out too many times in my first 90 days, as i had been there for over 100 days and he was found to be lying they put me on indefinite suspension for lack of grounds to terminate me), the company is run by the blind leading the stupid, the head of the company is an incompetent loaf that has no knowledge of how he runs the company into the ground, they have convicted pedophiles on payroll and claim to require a background check (they dont make him inform you and thats borderline illegal)

    Advice to Management

    how about you actually adhere to the safety standards you preach, act like adults dont let supervisors lie cheat and destroy opportunities for junior employees, learn how to actually manage personnel and maybe you should all be fired so competent persons may take your position
