    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Cristal full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Decent co-workers Interesting process and good training for young engineers Very laid back working hours Good health insurance

    Cons

    Forced ranking - better be a political all star since your rank is very dependent on who you know rather than actual skill Incompetent management - "Locals" are more often tapped to be managers, upper management fraught with indecision, in-fighting, and generally clue-less On call - Engineers are on call, expect multiple calls in the middle of the night to handle operations issues since operators are never held...

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the Saudis, hire people from decent schools, pay people what they are worth. Just because someone is a local who has been there a long time doesn't make them the next leader.
