    I have been working at Cristal full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Some of the co-workers are the brightest in the industry. There are small pockets of people that really try to excel but are beat down, with cross-cultural problems emanating from other regions of the world

    Cons

    Upward career progression is ZERO unless you are a Saudi National, very discouraging for people considering professional growth. The general morale of personnel lower than management is disheartening to see. Senior management promises are not upheld, there is too much disparity across the Business Units financially. No one has a sense of career orientation,it is more of making...

    Advice to Management

    Abandon the whole integration process, the SBU's will never truly cross-communicate in any truly meaningful manner

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Cristal full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Decent pay. Claims to family environment. 6% match on 401k.

    Cons

    Crap hours. Fails to follow policies. Crap benefits. Senior management spending billions on new plants while cutting people at older plants and cutting corners on safety.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure everyone is following their policies. When you blame lower tiers for your own failures you destroy morale and people leave for better companies who practice what they preach.

    I worked at Cristal

    Pros

    Good technology for manufacturing. Interesting worldwide locations. Ideal positions if relocation to KSA is desired.

    Cons

    IT area is poorly managed and IT Middle/Senior Management do not understand supporting the business as a whole. HR not supportive of staff members. Very few positions available for advancing to leadership/management unless willing to relocate to KSA (Saudi Arabia).

    Advice to Management

    Hire and keep the people that are competent and listen/act on their recommendations.

    I have been working at Cristal full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Some cracking people to work with. Pay you well (but they would have to to put up with the place). A great leg up to other sectors in the chemical industry

    Cons

    Clueless senior management. Toxic culture. Blame culture. Micromanaging from up top. Production rules over common sense Mind numbinly admin heavy

    Advice to Management

    Let people get on with their jobs. Stop placing restrictive systems on people Keep things simple Fix and update the place
