    Good Company but out of touch upper management

    Oct 28, 2021 - Crude Oil Driver

    Good benefits and overall working conditions.


    Upper management is totally out of touch with what's going on in the field. And current affairs and how economy and no financial relief is affecting its lower tier employees.

    Really deserves no stars! Stay away!

    This is a tough one, because the poor upper management trumps all the good! The front line and the some of the level above them I think are good to work with for the most part... The pay and benefits are OK for the area


    Upper management- NO idea what is going in but will step right in and wreck everything they can. They let the work force age and doing nothing about it they had to promote from within to fast, now they are top heavy with a bunch of clowns that they don't know what to do with. Maintenance Manger can't speak or understand English, we had to stop letting him come to production meeting because he had know idea what was going on but wanted to wreck it all! I don't believe for one minute someone gave this place over 3 stars! My guess is HR is trying to boost the rating by filling out a few reviews their self! Production is first! They blow smoke and and claim safety is, its not, don't get hurt or your gone. Training is a joke, but you better know it all or else! Huge turn over in most salaried positions, nobody in HR that is qualified ever stays, people start their new job and then think what the heck did just sign on for. When I started you had a 6 month contract. The turn over was so high it is now 2 years!

    Terrible, Toxic work environment! Rule by fear and intimidation

    Nov 23, 2019 - Maintenance Mechanic in Green River, WY

    FMC started and owned this facility previously. They were great to work for! After Fmc sold this facility to Tronox and Tronox sold to Genesis Energy it has become a miserable place to work. Pay and benefits are good, but you have no job security.


    Upper management is very power-hungry, always ruling with fear and intimidation tactics. A very high rate of terminations of salary and hourly. Not family-oriented, all new applicants need to ask about Numerous talented upper management left to work at other soda ash plants due to this environment.

    Could be a Great Company

    Decent benefits, especially healthcare, but they throw that in your face in order to overcompensate for the lack or raises/bonuses.


    Where do you start, ten facts about Genesis: 1. Lack of communication, everything is a secret. 2. No direction from upper management. 3. When an issue is raised by an employee, management disregards and move forward without fixing the issue. 4. Lets great talent slip away. 5. Safety is supposedly the bible, but in all reality it's a falsehood. It's just managers trying to save their job. 6. Senior executives are safe, but the little guy fears for their job daily. 7. High stress, undermanned, overworked and no appreciation. 8. Did I mention raises/bonuses? Yeah, they're pretty much nonexistent unless you're in the senior executive world. 9. Training or professional development has been undercut. 10. Extremely low morale and low sense or worth.

    Good benefits and work life balance


    Upper management doesn't care about people and only out for themselves.
