I have been working at LyondellBasell full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I have worked for 2 other companies before coming to LYB 2 years ago. Things I like:
- The best focus on safety I have ever seen. GoalZERO is great and is working
- We get the resources we need to run the plants reliably and safely
- Career opportunities - there are numerous plant expansions creating all kinds of new jobs
- Top management clearly wants the company to be the best
-Bonuses every year have been 30-60% above target, reflecting the company's good performance

Cons

There are some people in the company that were here before bankruptcy that just have trouble making the culture change. Trust me, I've seen the other side in other companies. The company is much more performance driven today and is not a place for people that want to sit back and have a party. The company is for people that want to work hard and win - that's why I like it.

Advice to Management

Keep driving hard on Operational Excellence - this is making us the safest company but is also making us very reliable and generating good revenue. And thanks for your strong leadership on Safety - it shows every day and we very much appreciate it.

    the employees were micromanaged; Internet access was cut off for employees; training was haphazard at best for most procedures, with no documentation for the exact steps;
