I have been working at LyondellBasell full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The work is challenging but pays very well. If you are a diligent worker that has a passion to your career or industry you would love the company, otherwise fall. The company has a bright future, I do not regret working at LyondellBasell!

Cons

Post bankruptcy has their employees working extra hours at times, and taking on projects that has unfeasible deadlines. It might be a bad thing but it is what makes the company profitable and leads to stability in employment!

    "Interesting Experiment"

    Pros

    It is an interesting experiment to experience. If you don't have an engineering degree, but want "engineer" as a title, this is the company to work for. They have started using 2 year vocational grads as plant engineers simply because they can't fill the roles with 4 year engineers. There is also plenty of work since only about 50% of the positions are filled. It is also a very diverse work force. There are engineers from places like Mumbai, Trinidad, Thailand, etc. that management has recruited to come over on work visas. Guessing the mystery bonus has gotten to be an interesting game as well. The phrase "at managements descretion" is used often.

    Cons

    The HR people come-and-go so quickly it is difficult to remember their names. You may have as much higher education study as your doctor but don't expect to be treated that way. You receive ethical training annually, performance reviews quarterly, and monthly reports better include how much money your saving. Remember your bonus is "at managements descretion".

    Advice to Management

    Push the envelope! We can run these plants on autopilot!

    Pros

    Situated well in the petro-chemical Industry from market forces for low cost energy consumption and high demand of end-product sales.

    Cons

    Executive leadership operates from a perspective that human capital is cheap and easily replaceable. The messages in the communications to employees don't correspond to the execution taken.
