    I have been working at LyondellBasell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is well positioned in the market, with excellent vertical integration, and many talented people. With shell gas influenced price competitiveness LYB is doing the right things well ahead of competition.

    Cons

    In this aggressive talent focused market LYB has been slow to respond to competitive changes in salary. New HR leadership is trying to make course corrections, but there is strong resistance from some of the top leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Don't loose focus on the people making things happen.
