    Pros

    Some of the most wonderful people to work with around the globe, very little politics, and great coffee. Great benefits. Regional management tries hard to keep morale up.

    Cons

    Soul tearing restructure/layoff by Tasnee (Saudi parent) in 2016, followed by office closing and forced relocation to Glen Burnie (take it or leave). But wait, there's more! Buyout attempt by Tronox in 2017 so Tasnee decided to stop investing, then the FTC decided it's a terrible idea to make an oligopoly industry even smaller, Tronox sues but God knows where that's headed after a year of complete uncertainty with more...

    Advice to Management

    Maximize Cristal's value through investing in plants and her people. The sale isn't done until it's done.

    I have been working at Cristal full-time

    Pros

    good people to work with... great benefits...good work life balance

    Cons

    tronox take over leaves people wondering if tronox will get rid of any of there people in this take over. They say they will look at both side but we all think that is a lie. time will tell...

    Advice to Management

    Just be fair about the process and job elimination. Just because someone has been there for 30 years doesnt mean they are good at their jobs. Tronox is a very small company and they have no clue for what they are getting into. and the size of Cristal.

    Pros

    Hard to do less work. Flexible hours. Great benefits relative to what you have to put in.

    Cons

    There is almost zero fulfillment other than a paycheck. The most valuable technical staff are leaving en masse placing more and more administrative and mundane work on fewer and fewer folks. Even a good plan wouldn't be this effective at stripping the company of staff without resorting to layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Do something? ANYTHING.
