Pros

Tronox provides good benefits to both the employee and their families. Sick leave and vacation polices are very good - based on years of experience. Some managers do allow for comp time when you have worked long weeks due to not paying overtime. Tronox provides a 401K match and plans to payout a bonus program in 2012 for the 2011 performance.

Cons

The downside at working with Tronox is the employee structure. With the current setup, there is not much room for advancement for Process Engineers. Most moves within the plant are only lateral moves. There are few leadership building type roles within the current structure of the plant. When the leadership roles do become available, interviews are not conducted for the jobs - they appointed by site leadership positions. Tronox does not provide cell phones to the process engineers but do expect you to be available at all time through personal cell phones.

    I worked at Tronox as a contractor

    Pros

    There were plenty of opportunities to learn the business.

    Cons

    Hiring managers were old school and not up to date on modern recruiting processes.

    Advice to Management

    Some need to retire and get some fresh ideas and more energy into the company. Learn how to recognize good talent and take some leadership courses.

    I worked at Tronox full-time

    Pros

    Good pay. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Incompetent management has led to very low morale with subsequent impact on job performance. Reliance on contractors to fill in for knowledge gaps in management. Competent employees are ignored and demeaned. If you aren't a chemical engineer you're nobody.
    Company is for sale and employees are questioning job stability.

    Advice to Management

    Do you really need a management team in Philly for an 800 person workforce in Green River Wyoming? Dump the top tier and let the people who know what they are doing run the show. Offer leadership and management training. Look at morale and the impacts the lowered morale is having on safety and production.
