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

Pros

Good pay, benefits and overtime prior to upcoming turnaround

Cons

Cut throat operators, 'old timers' don't like change, management is not in touch with reality of unit, training is terrible.

Advice to Management

create a functional training program and have it implemented for everyone, not have 5 different ways of doing things.

    I worked at LyondellBasell full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of work hours; emphasis on safety

    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;

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees as professionals and have a more methodically documented training for various procedures

    salary is competitive
    bonus program is better than most
    401k matching is better than most
    great boss and good co-workers

    fantastic reliability in manufacturing

    Cons

    IT is rabid regarding security, requiring work-arounds
    Doesn't seem to be much of a long-term strategy
    Still seems to be a lot of baggage from bankruptcy
    Conflict adverse with individuals
    More likely to change policies than manage performance

    Advice to Management
