    I worked at Huntsman Corp full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good folks to work with on projects on the ground.

    Cons

    The IT lower to middle management levels are very poor in the Houston Texas site. They believe that since they have been there the longest, then there is job security and failing projects are okay. A common saying there - If it hasn't already been done a certain way here, don't look for new ways to work, and don’t expect other ways of work to ever happen. Very low morale, and no real sense of accomplishment on...

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to promote junior Leads to Project Managers. Then make sure they are knowledgeable about all stages in projects, listen to seasoned staff and contractors, and stop wearing their little ego’s on the shoulders that they are so proud of there. Make sure they are accountable for their results, and not ploy through contractors because they dot know how to run a project or lead staff! Be aware, IF NOT, then...

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Huntsman Corp for more than 9 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.

      Medium sized company, not too corporate

      Cons

      A lot of ad hoc decision making without a clear strategy

      Current Employee - Supervisor 

      I have been working at Huntsman Corp full-time for more than 20 years

      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
