    I worked at NOVA Chemicals full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Focused on employee safety. If you have the right team leader, there are opportunities to advance outside of your current role.

    Cons

    The way their pay scale works, it is almost impossible to get a raise. Limited opportunities for career advancement in some roles. Benefits not as good as you might expect

    Advice to Management

    Look at process for salaries and wage increases. Improve benefit program.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at NOVA Chemicals full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Co-workers are good. Recognition of career/life balance. Offices/work facilities are decent.

    Cons

    Salaries are aimed at industry 50 percentile, by policy, and they'll aim low to make sure they don't exceed that point. Limited opportunities for career advancement. Senior management usually hired externally. Limited external or internal training.

    Advice to Management

    Act like the company is in the industry for the long haul. Provide some sort of advancement opportunities for employees beyond job families. Employees might be the largest controllable expense but they are what can make the company great over the long haul.
