Pros

Westlake is a very lean organization that provides the opportunity to take on new and exciting responsibilities. It is in conservative growth mode which positions it well in this rollercoaster economy. Recently it was ranked the Company of the Year in 2011 by the Houston Chronicle.

Cons

There is always alot of work to be done because it is a lean organization. This is not a place for people who want to hide in a cube.

    "Over worked and poor pay raises and bonuses"

    Pros

    Good co-workers and a great place to build experience. Due to lean environment, you wear a lot of different hats. Good 401K program which has a match and defined contribution.

    Cons

    Due to the lean environment, you feel overwhelmed very often. The average pay raise is below the inflation rate. Bonus metrics are never achievable even though company continues to post record profits.

    Advice to Management

    Try to retain talent and keep up with the rest of industry with regard to raises and bonuses.
