Excellent benefits (immediate 10% company contribution to 401k if you put in 4% of pay, affordable medical plans, 2-6 weeks of vacation plus 11 holidays plus 5 paid personal days off per year, free disability coverage, good life insurance). Competitive salaries. All employees eligible for bonuses.

    Cons

    Frequent company restructuring. People tend to stay with company, which can limit promotion opportunities.

    Pros

    Excellent company, excellent people and the Director Robin Bennet was literally one of the best people I have ever had the pleasure to work for.

    Cons

    the title is not one you want to hang your hat on. Also this job is hourly and deserves the respect of a salaried position.

    Advice to Management

    Make this a salary position as it requires that type of commitment

    I worked at Huntsman Corp (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at all levels are friendly and helpful when asked. The tasks are meaningful, necessary, and understandable. Requests for software to do the task at hand are quickly granted. The facility is first class.

    Cons

    The distance from home to work is a bit longer than I would like to drive, but the roads are good and the traffic is tolerable. The length of assignment isn't as long as I would like.

    Advice to Management

    You have found an excellent management style. Do not change a thing you have control of.

    Pros

    The culture is nurturing and they take care of their own. The SBU's are agile and able to adapt quickly to market changes. Huntsman's location is very appealing, and the company is throwing efforts to make the workplace even more welcoming. The Woodlands is such a beautiful back drop and so peaceuful that every lunch break had a refreshing glow to it. Huntsman itself is doing well and has a great future ahead,

    Cons

    While working there, I found a few things that needed improved upon but management was always willing to listen and implement new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
