    I have been working at NOVA Chemicals

    Pros

    This plant was ran by a man named Nabial Alghanma. He trained all the employees in TPM and Autonomous maintenance as well as creating an environment of process ownership and team responsibility. The plant has made unbelievable strides forward in production, cost of doing business and employee ownership. Every employee is happy to work there and they all know their worth.

    Cons

    Chemical plant environment, most of the plant is outdoors and no a/c or heat in summer and winter. Plants operates even in inclement weather.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt the leadership style of Nabial Alghanma or properly train the people in all your plants

    Former Employee - Senior SAP Basis Consultant in Toronto, ON

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at NOVA Chemicals for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with. The team I worked with was great. The IT organization has a lot of cumulative SAP experience and low attrition. Employees get competitive salaries and extra days off on top of vacation.

    Cons

    Some areas of the IT organization could work better, but that could be said about any organization. Most IT office locations are not in metropolis locations, but that can be a good thing depending on your preference.

    Advice to Management

    Try AGILE development instead of spending so much effort on resource administration and time management.
