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

Pros

There are some really good people, and their market is very hot right now which results in a fast-paced working environment, and incredible opportunity for the company to make major profits.

Cons

The overall management philosophy is broken, inconsistent, and outdated. There is a lot of internal competition between business units which could be cultivated positively, but is instead used to pit people against each other resulting in an incredible amount of backstabbing and negativity. People that work here (including managers that need to hire people) are very reluctant to refer people they know and like due to how bad this place is to work.

Advice to Management

Corporate leadership needs to decide to grow the company for the long term instead of making a quick buck in the here and now while the market is hot. Quit nickle and diming people with a lousy vacation policy, sub-par compensation packages, and not paying more for employees to park at the downtown Houston headquarters.

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

    Pros

    Good business sense. But it won't run when you people leave

    Cons

    Poor excuse of a CEO. Poor management. Pay and benefits not up to participate with similar companies.

    Advice to Management

    Time for talking and fake promises is over. The only home for this company is to go union. You are to greedy and out of control.
