Cabot -MA
Accounting (Former Employee), MASeptember 4, 2014
Pros: fair pay and benefits
Cons: poor management
Cabot is one of those companies you either like or you don't. Corporate office is very political. It's an established company and old school. Lot of turnover among employees but also employees that have longevity there. Fair pay and benefits. Although I maintained contact with co-workers after I left, not a place I would recommend.

Tough Workplace
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee), MarshallJune 28, 2014
Pros: good insurance and 401k
Cons: dirty environment, understaffed, poor management, unsafe working conditions
Company required us to work 12 hour shifts alone, which is unsafe and physically/mentally exhausting. Workload was enough to keep 2 people per shift busy. Supervsion did not care and never responded to reported safety dangers of working solo. Supervisors look out for themselves. Equipment was poorly maintained and constantly breaking. Extremely dirty – more... workplace due to working with carbon. Folks who work here put out a lot of work with little recognition or praise. Pay was OK but below other chemical/oilfield plants in the area. Benefits were good but did not offset the demands of the job. This company is results oriented and definitely not people oriented. Go to work here with your eyes wide open. – less

Interviewee at Marshall, TX facility
Interview candidate (Former Employee), Marshall, TXMarch 25, 2014
Site GM was absolutely worst interview ever. He was only interested in 1-2 word answers. He made you not want to work for him or the organization. Other interviewers held same opinion. Comments were that you adjust to him and his abrasive style or you won't survive. If ever there was a person that belonged in a single contributor role, its this guy. – more... He is an employee relations nightmare. – less

Corporate Atmosphere Good, BUT...
Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee), Boston, MADecember 2, 2013
Pros: location, offices, technology, svp and below staff
Cons: some executives in the top tier of the company. omg.
I worked in Boston for Cabot at their corp. offices in the Seaport District. The staff and most of the management were professional, top notch hardworking people who knew that Cabot was a great place to work. It is.
My issues with upper management came to light when I noticed the hiring of what I would term several spoiled, high maintenance executives – more... who have lead extremely privileged lives and their attitudes towards staff and their own work ethic shows this. Typical of the above was the EVP of Reinforcement Materials. I had the "privilege" of working near this person and witnessed first hand their inability to engage with and understand the non-privileged lives of regular every day working people. I overhead that he had to take a non-First Class Seat from Boston to LaGuardia and honestly, he complained about it to anyone who would listen for a full week. There were several other "new hires" with the same issue in the C Suite and just below. Very spoiled, superior, needy and incapable of handling tasks that a junior assistant knows how to do.
I mean, if you're going all out to hire someone at the executive level, make sure they can interact NORMALLY with other executives and staff at the company. No matter how smart you are, weird, rich and spoiled does not equal good by any means and should be avoided at all costs. They need to rethink their entire hiring process in the top tier. – less
