I worked there for 3 months. I worked as a materials engineering intern. I enjoyed my time there and had no problems with the employees there. I would work there in the future if the opportunity arises.
Fiber Operator (Former Employee) – Narrows, VA – June 19, 2018
I loved working for the company, they pay very well. Only thing is that when i worked there certain employees did not like to be out worked and would try their best to get others fired. I did not care to get a promotion so I never really looked into that. Some workers would bring things in from outside of work to make others feel bad about their past. However the company and work that I did was great I miss it very much, and wish I could work there again.
Process Operator (Former Employee) – Pampa, TX – June 5, 2018
Great place to plant your roots. The longevity within certain locations have made this a great place to work. Many workers have more than 15 years of service leads to a plethora of knowledge and great leadership.

Celanese is a great company but the HR department is a horrible group to work in. DO NOT work in HR! It is like high school and the leaders think they are prom queens and you are lucky to be in their presence.
Process Operator (Current Employee) – Narrows, VA – May 19, 2018
The schedule is terrible. Not only is the schedule terrible, every operating unit in the plant is understaffed and a mandatory overtime system is in place that routinely calls for process operators to work a 16 hour shift.

Celanese is one of those companies that stands out in the best of the best when you work there. The people are very friendly and help new comers adjust to their processes. Although I have heard of some managers that were more self-serving. Most of the Management teams are very progressive, well educated, and understand life happens. Hardest part of the job was being available to help some people in different time zones and I sometimes required Myself to be available late at night to help meet and train some of the foreign groups. The most enjoyable part of the job was also working with each of the groups and feeling that they appreciated you assistance.
Big Company, but if you want responsibility, you can assume it.
Market Development Manager -Engineered Materials (Former Employee) – Florence, KY – May 2, 2018
Very detached management style that is unwilling to listen to basic facts. Little interest in development, more focused on growth via acquisition. Company however, has great products that are well defended by IP, but less likely to develop organically.
If you are a fast worker, you can gain momentum by shaping their internal knowledge.
If management doesn't understand the technology, they seem unwilling to learn.
IT Project Analyst-Contractor (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – March 18, 2018
Although I worked as a contractor for Celanese, it was one of the best experiences I have had. The staff is highly educated, very collaborative and personable. This is the type of company and staff you like to stay after hours and just talk, share ideas and have fun. Great Place to work.

Celanese is a great company with a long history. The organization is filled with tenured staff that had very generous benefits and retirement packages. Many of those benefits have been cut, but the company still provides attractive compensation packages.
As a whole, the company is healthy and a positive environment. There are pockets of very unhappy employees.
There are entire organizations within Celanese that are decaying from poor leadership and the resulting toxic culture. Alongside them are very healthy groups full of positive people. This contrast is stark and can be observed simply by walking the halls.
