Schedule is inconsistent but pay is fair.
The most frustrating part about this job is the inconsistency of the schedule. Start time would change every so often and there were a lot of broken clock in stations. Other than that pay was decent and the medical benefits were good but not a lot of vacation time and no sick leave.

Good work, not so good company
Working environment was one of get the job done no matter what. While that was ok, the management did not give me the tools to succeed. Work environment was toxic due to brown nosers not having to pull their weight while the real workers were expected to do their jobs without support and shut up about it.

Hard place to work
Previous management used to be awful, then they hired a new plant manager and also a new operations manager. Things started to look up, until they named a condescending, ruthless, arrogant, self absorbed, swell head Plant Supervisor. Operators are worked to the ground with little to no appreciation from the egomania supervisor. Instead of giving you credit where credit is due, he’ll boost himself up. If you like okay pay, terrible health insurance, constant insults from your Supervisor then this is the place for you!

It used to be a good place to work.
An awful narcissist became the supervisor and now he makes all the operators hate their job. He is a miserable person. It used to be a good place to work...now I hate going in. He sucks!

Working for this company was stressful because you never know when your job was going to be eliminated. My manager tried to make it as pleasant as possible. He was always available to help with concerns.

It was and interesting 8 1/2 years with continual change.
Overall a good company to work for, the continual changes were very challenging to work through. Many layoffs as the company bought and sold other companies.
Pros
Pay & benefits
Cons
Continuous change could be chaotic

Nothing positive to say of the Texas City Location
Workplace culture has changed drastically after the buyout of ISP and Ashland took over. It is very demoralizing.

Best part was working with some of the ISP old timers.
Cons
Benefits are lacking

Pros
Plant manager requires all to be team players and it has become cultural.

A complete death trap of a place to work. Should be shut down by the epa.
This place favors the good ole boys club. If you aren't a part of it good luck advancing. They will put someone over you with less experience because they were looking out for the future. Well look now people as they are about to close and get sold lol. This place has hurt more people and the environment than whirlpool ever did. Erin Brockavich needs to come and see the facility and the contaminated ground it sits on. There is hazardous waste buried under the entire area. They know and just submit bogus environmental samples. The health and safety guy in charge died of cancer. As we all will suffer long term effects from exposure. My life has permanently been altered because of working here and breathing this stuff daily. They implemented a safety program after people kept getting hurt to make themselves look good while encouraging employees to come up with things for small gifts to tell on each other.
Pros
None
Cons
Eveything thank god i quit!!!

The regular cycle of VSO and headcount reductions was awful
I really enjoyed the people and the work I did at Ashland. There is still clearly a boys network in play that was quite discouraging at times. There was also, and continues to be, a cycle of buying/selling/reorganizing that resulted in voluntary retirement offerings and the headcount reductions to address "stranded cost". The unease this created was really awful and managed poorly.
