    Pros

    A lot of smart, well-meaning people who care.

    We were acquired by Huntsman and dismantled manager by manager. Old school culture with corp HQ mentality. Everyone outside HQ relegated to satellite status. IT security and Legal dept obstacles in way of innovation. Lotus notes. Lack of incentive pay.

    I worked at Huntsman Corp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In my role I was able to shape the process safety management system for the company. I was a major contributor and interpreter of the companies process safety management procedures and practices.

    Cons

    The technical aspects of process safety were not as well understood or appreciated by the business leaders of the divisions as they should be.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate and listen to your engineers more. They are your problem solvers and they can keep you out of trouble and make your operations more effecient and cost effective if you will just empower them to do so.

    Pros

    Brand new plant, so starting up wasn't always fun or easy. Great benefits and safety culture. Can't beat the retirement plan or the time off.

    Cons

    Management isn't very good. Because it was a plant start-up, management tried to stay hands on with everything which ultimately caused more problems than needed.

    Pros

    Great facility, good people to be around. Very relaxed working environment. The place was pretty much empty past 4pm. They were extremely flexible with scheduling and work load. Management was extremely awesome about listening to everybody's opinion. Great job security.

    Cons

    Not much communication between divisions. From what I understand, they weren't very good about developing individuals by sending then back to college, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Start investing into your employees at all levels.
