    Pros

    The Phosphate Corporate office is located in Florida.

    Safety is a priority. Employees are treated as a resource, not a throwaway product. Benefits include 401k contribution match, insurance and performance bonuses.

    Pros

    Great employees. Very friendly coworkers. Safe place to be. People here make the job very enjoyable. Even if your working overtime for like 20 hours, you won't even feel it.

    Cons

    There's nothing bad I can say about being here. Some people seem aggressive to be around at times but overall everyone does a good job doing what they got to do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Decent Benefits. Corporate office is pretty.

    Cons

    Terrible Managers, Old Systems, Good Ole Boy's club that has a problem with female leadership, terrible commutes, bad environments, and refusal to change for the better!!!

    Advice to Management

    Let the new talent you hire do their jobs!!! Not all 30+ years with the company male leaders are good leaders. Eliminate the old school attitude and modernize systems, thinking and procedures. Actually do Lean.
