    I worked at Oxy Vinyls full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits comparable to other refineries

    Cons

    No loyalty to long term employees. No connect between management and the actual labor force. No support to good employees, only negative feedback. HR involvement in micro-managing issues that should be handled by supervisors. No sense of team-building or working towards employee morale. Everything micromanaged down to the bottom line on money. High profit plant does nothing to boost employee morale or encourage employee loyalty. Employee bonus program tied to loss-time injuries, which means everyone can be penalized for one person's misstep.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe take a look at reverse discrimination in some of your plants. Have HR get off the micro-management train and instead work on promoting employee relations. Have engineers get outside and involved with the labor force to see that theory doesn't always translate into a working idea.
