      Pros

      very unique culture, close knit family environment, values employees, global company but small family feel, open to feedback from employees on ways to make improvement, strong management team, #1 priority is safety and responsible care, offers flexible work schedules

      Cons

      smaller company so fewer opportunities for advancement, Methanex globally encourages relocation so if you aren't interested in relocation, your career options are somewhat limited

      Quality workplace

      Pros

      Has a culture that is unique. It tends to be a mix of a small company feel with a larger company presence. Persons that perform are recognized much quicker than other places I've been, and other opportunities are afforded. A positive departure from others. Overall a very positive culture.

      Cons

      Strengths can be weaknesses. The small company acting as a bigger company can leave gaps. The health benefits are the one area that is recognized as subpar, all though this may be site specific. The market does tend to be cyclical, and persons have to be prepared to ride out the storms.
