    Pros

    Good pay and people to work with.

    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.

    I worked at Huntsman Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.
