    I worked at Huntsman Corp (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Depending on your supervisor, you may be self directed most of the time. This worked well for our area, but may not work for all.
    Good technical people supporting some technology roles, but many are retriring or retired.

    Cons

    Huntsman talks about a way of promoting engineers through a technical track, but it is all talk and no action.
    Too much reliance on pushing decisions to higher levels where non technical or even specific business managers have no say.

    Pros

    Good pay and people to work with.

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Management doesn't pick best qualified employee for promotions...instead they will pick their favorites even if they don't have all the qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    Play by the same rules for everyone.

    Pros

    compensation and work life balance are great

    If you have a manager/supervisor with whom you don't see eye to eye, you could be in a bad situation for quite a long time.

    Exclusive culture where only certain people are aware of career opportunities.

    Employee retention is a problem. Several reshuffling of the org chart to improve efficiency but seems targeted at individuals.

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent pay, training, emphasis on safety.

    Cons

    Cronyism, favoritism, overall lack of ethics, no integrity, unqualified people promoted to management, unprofessional environment, company really only cares about its stockholders.

    Advice to Management

    This site is small and tends to fly under the radar and career growth is doubtful unless you move to Texas. Too many managers have their own agenda and there is little to no team effort. I would suggest that upper management audit this site's management team to make sure they are following company policies and procedures. Would not recommend working in the production or warehouse departments at this site.
