    I worked at Huntsman Corp

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefit package

    Cons

    Culture is biased, and political. If you cant smile through the adversity and keep your head down you wont make it as a minority. Management over the units wont set you up to succeed. Get rid of the union they're stealing rather then helping.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure leadership to promote positivity & equality.

    I have been working at Huntsman Corp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    decent benefit and pay. Office is very nice.

    Cons

    Unless you are whites, the middle management level is full of racists and only promote/hire white people. Do nothing culture - if you try to improve the process/quality/efficiency, you are an enemy of lots of do-nothing mentality people, including your own manager. Incompetent management - lazy and do-nothing. Your skills and talent will be wasted in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Set up KPIs. Need to hold middle level managers accountable. Change your racist culture. Give minorities and people of color some opportunities to develop.

    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...

    I worked at Huntsman Corp for 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.
