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

Pros

We do get a 6% 401k match and a 5% pension.
Decent money per hour

Cons

Supervisors are scared of management. managers are scared of higher management. This all rolls down hill on the hourly. Channelview plant manager leads by fear instead of real leadership.
They are always telling us to be industry leaders but they keep us at 60% of Industry pay.
Not much in career opportunities outside of what I do already.

Advice to Management

Leave.

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

    Pros

    Salary and many good people
    Good assets
    Expansion opportunities, growth potential with good locations
    This company has great potential but the arcane, arrogant leadership team will destroy the company.

    Cons

    Poor Leadership
    Don't value people
    Don't want input from anyone
    They are driving out all the good experienced people because they don't want anyone to point out issues.

    Advice to Management

    No point - they don't intend to change

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

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits.
    Good financial outlook for the company.

    Cons

    - Management considers people as replaceable assets.
    - No emphasis on training or continued learning. No formal training programs or curriculum.
    - Reviews are given based on subjective opinion based thinking with no guidance or specifics for improvement.
    - Has IT capability that is atleast a decade old, spend several hours each weak chasing physical paperwork that could be seconds worth of work on a computer. Company still gives desktops to employees!

    Advice to Management

    - Start treating people with respect and not like children.
    - Raise the level of IT to current decade.
    - Get mid and lower management off their high horse to actually lead people instead of driving them with fear.
