    Former Employee - Operations 

    I worked at Formosa Plastics Corporation, U.S.A. full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salary. Good benefits. Pension. Overtime.

    Cons

    Constant equipment failure with no replacement parts in stock. Process engineering seems to be mostly guess work. Safety not high priority. Shut the Delaware plant down with only a 2 month notice. Severance pay not anywhere near reflective of years employed with them.

    Pros

    Great pay but that's about it the rest about the plant is terrible

    Cons

    Plant is shutting down they never gave any care about the people actually working trying to keep the plant running.

    If you got all new management and people up front and a real chemical engineer the plant would still be running.

    Pros

    great benefits package and and perhaps a good place to start a career.

    Cons

    the politics laced with nepotism. very blatant favoritism that is not always merit based. the software is extremely outdated and inefficient and not even designed for the work we do on it. i also had the unfortuate experience with a manager that had an extensive history of bullying people to the point that they quit or flee to another position. in fact the position I had was available because the person before me...
