    Pros

    good work schedule, some genuine employees

    Cons

    unprofessional management, immature and always do things unethical and violate people rights. CS management personnel are bullies if you ever disagree with them they then begin to find ways to get rid of you. A lot of clicques

    Advice to Management

    wish the CEO would take a moment and listen to the lower level people in CS group and he would find a lot out

    I worked at Huntsman Corp full-time

    Pros

    Gained a good deal of technical experience conducting Research and Development projects.
    Had a great Senior Scientist who served as a mentor.
    Facility was very clean, well maintained and commitment to employee health (onsite nurse), safe working conditions, and the environment was top-notch.
    -Monthly employee safety meetings
    -Multiple opportunities to present research updates at team meetings.
    -Multiple opportunities to attend seminars by external speakers and vendors would regularly come in to showcase products. There was also an annual health fair.
    -Onsite cafeteria at the Technical center.
    -Multiple opportunities to engage management with at least three performance reviews per year, goal setting, and numerous conferences as needed to outline career goals.

    Cons

    Only one I can think of is the cost cutting measures that were enacted several years ago to save profit margins changed the company atmosphere. Many colleagues left as a result and it wasn't the same after that.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to think long term. This is a great company to work for and you need to continue innovating for the future. Do not focus strictly on saving current product portfolios only.

    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

    Pros

    Gret work life balance. Great location and campus. Immediate management team shows excellent leadership, mentoring and integrity. Jon Huntsman (the founder) is a
    Christmatic leader and a dedicated philanthropist.

    Cons

    Nepotism runs deep at this "public" traded company. Upper management is more concerned with stock price and paying dividends than developing new products and associates. Need to fully utilize their current assets (plants) before looking to acquire additional ones. The 5 divisions function in silo's and need to learn to work with internal synergies.

    Advice to Management

    Choose qualified candidates for VP's and above. Not from their last names or religious affiliations.
