    I worked at Huntsman Corp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment, challenging, interesting, safe, and excellent management.

    Cons

    Close to nothing. Just be prepared to work. If you do, you'll have a great time

    Advice to Management

    Express safety. Keep that as the number one priority. What separates Huntsman from the rest of the chemical business is personalized connection. The people are the ones that work the magic. Continue to hire people that are intelligent, but also know how to communicate with others.

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

    Pros

    Family oriented company with good ties to the community. Their intent is to provide a good environment. The work environment is positive and reasonable.

    Cons

    Sometimes the family gets in the way of good business practices. A little too much nepotism. There are some elements of favoritism if you have the right name.

    I worked at Huntsman Corp

    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.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Huntsman Corp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Good teamwork in the field, with operators and millwirghts. - End users want equipment to run so they provide good feedback once they sense you want to help them. - Work environment is acceptable, no unnecessary stress (at least in my position)

    Cons

    - No formal training provided. Engineer has to learn on his own and from others if they are willing to share.

    Advice to Management

    Company will lose good engineers who are looking for advancement and growth.
