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

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, normally good people to work for through the plant manager level.

    Cons

    New Management group trying to make the company like their previous company.

    Advice to Management

    If you ask us to work more hours, we need to get more compensation

    Pros

    Work with many wonderful, intelligent people.

    Cons

    Managers are very unprofessional in behaviors. Safety is a concern only if it is not a manager that creates a safety issue. We are told to speak up but be prepared to be cut in next round or sooner is you challenge a certain manager.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that this is your work place not the local bar. Come to work dressed appropriately, ready to act like the professional you are paid to be. Upper management, take control and mentor lower management. They could use some professionalism training.
