Active Directory Administrator (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXApril 29, 2018
Positions portrayed to be in need of an Administrator/ lite engineering. Walking in was introduced to a help desk situation for which they are completely overmanned and still micromanaging. Wow... Great Employees tho

Maintenace Electrician (Current Employee) –  Pasadena, TXFebruary 21, 2018
It's a good job but there is no accountability for not following procedures with all crafts in the plant, no communication between maintenance and operations.

Vice-President of People (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXSeptember 18, 2017
Austin is 100 years old and is 100% employee owned. This creates a tremendous amount of loyalty to the organization. I would recommend this organization to an individual interested in pursuing a long career.

The company being 100% employee-owned is by far its biggest asset.

Austin industrial @ lanxess
Finishing Technician (Current Employee) –  Orange, TXFebruary 28, 2017
A typical day at work is pretty laid back long as you get the job done! I learned a lot far as hydroblasting and driving forklifts! Management is pretty good, most managers know how to make a plan and make our job safe and easier if possible! The hardest part of the job is probably digging trenches all day trying to get dry rubber out!
But if you work as a team it can happen! I love everything about my job except for the pay! I have a family too feed and have a lot of future goals to succeed in!
Pros
Management are pretty good!
Cons
The pay is not that good!

Boilermaker (Former Employee) –  Freeport, TXJanuary 25, 2017
Very good company to work for good benefits. They had there business in order. Austin vauled the workers if you needed something they make sure you get it. Very good communication skills between the co-workers and formen. Good place to work for made me fill good to come to work. This company also went off la person experience and how you conduct your work as of someone saying they have a nccer.
