    Pros

    Great company to work for with good benefits. I have a reasonable amount of flexibility in my position. (this depends in large part on your direct supervisor)

    Great people to work with.

    Integrity is very important to the company. I know things will be done ethically.

    Cons

    Pay is at the median level for most positions.

    Unless you are outside sales, routine work from home options are virtually nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good to have more flexibility in work schedules. Perhaps allowing part time professional positions or job sharing.

    Pros

    -Pay is very competitive and on par, if not better than average in this area
    -Small plant with a great tight knit family atmosphere
    -The people who run this plant make it what it is. We have a small footprint but we have the absolute best workforce throughout all the other Huntsman sites. I am biased but it is for good reason.
    -Opportunities for advancement/Growth potential

    Cons

    -Smaller plant, less recognition.
    -Lot of undeveloped land that could be better utilized for more processes.

    Overall the company have nice benefit.
