Improvement Focus in a Dynamic Environment
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 1, 2017
After working for many large organizations, the size of TPC Group is really refreshing. I could actually get the right people in the room to enact change and they were willing to listen. You are trusted early on to "run with it" and those that can handle the improvement focused, fast paced, rapidly changing environment can make a big difference and get noticed/rewarded for it.

Management is values focused and treats employees well. There is a strong culture of collaboration and engagement. It's a great place to work if you are experienced and willing to bet on your own success.
Pros
Culture, Opportunity, Stability, Coworkers, Work/Life Balance
Cons
Lack of formal training programs (you have to seek it out on your own)

Refuses to fix equipment properly
Millwright (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 23, 2017
Worked there for 3 years. If you are looking for a plant to work at to get the plant experience the better companies want, then this is the place. Equipment is outdated, adapted to fit adaptions. Equipment is in dire need of repair and updates. Management is too complacent and is always looking for the cheapest fix. Employee benefits have been eroded away. No bonus, no 401k contributions and company always appears to be on the brink of bankruptcy.
Pros
Hourly employees are great and helpful. Easy to accumulate vacation time. 9-80 schedule
Cons
Cafeteria, management, pay, equipment, shop, transportation in the plant.

Management: Expectations are high!
Senior Strategic Sourcing / Category Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 1, 2017
Every day is a challenge; expectations, at times, are overwhelming and not achievable, given the resources to work with.
Opportunity to learn is present; there is no limit, should the desire to increase one's knowledge, be the goal.
Management style leans towards "Corporate America", company's management and departments are very lean to fit a large company model with several layers of management. Being a small company (with respect to the number of employees) focus should be driven to support internal customers, as well as operations.
Due to lean departments, it was most difficult to complete tasks as scheduled - lack of Team support and participation due to each team members daily tasks and/or responsibilities.
Enjoyed working with colleagues - the relationships established while working with different departments. Great people to work with.
Pros
Depending on the manager, flexible schedule
Cons
Rise in health care cost and direction of senior leadership

Good Entry- Level Operator Job
Process Operator/Engineer (Former Employee) –  Port Neches, TXNovember 2, 2013
TPC is a great place to work if you enjoy overtime. You are allowed to drive into the plant to your work building and everyone pretty much leaves you alone. Management is strict and nit-picky.
Pros
Working alone.
Cons
Unscheduled shift changes and unending overtime fire guarding.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 9, 2012
Enjoyed working for here. Came in as contract and within six month I was full time. I gain most of the chemical industry experience at this company. I enjoyed my co-workers and the work well with management.

My achievement: Created five webpages Operations, Root Cause Investigation, Process Support Services, Process Safety Managements Environmental Health Safety & Security and Reliability.

The most enjoyable part of my job was being part of the Emergency Operations Communication (EOC). My responsibility was accountability of employees during the emergency.
