Micro Managed Workplace with Poor Culture and Management

Management is the key poor aspect of this job. Management is biased and unresponsive to employee issues. Some employees get to do their job comfortably while others are constantly scrutinized and under intense pressure. Issues brought to managements attention many times goes ignored. Lots of negative workplace gossip among management. These things can create an environment that a focused employee cannot thrive in. Culture here seems to be very focused on finding a "fall guy" for every minute' issue. Favoritism can also be an issue as discipline is not evenly administered. Outside of management the company itself has many great attributes. Great work supplies, informational access and super benefits.

Pros

Up to date machines, easy access to most information

Cons

Gossip based management, Not responsive to issues, biased disclipline

Good Place and People

Coworkers were super friendly and helpful. They looked out for each other and always asked if help was needed. Hours were kind of random. Start times were consistent but hours not necessarily guaranteed. Pay was decent.

Pros

Good coworkers

Cons

Hours can be random

High stress, low sense of accomplishment

I worked at FHR Longview for 5 years and had 5 different managers. Upper management is very negative. The work itself was not difficult but the management expected perfection and applied pressure at every opportunity which made the stress level very high and contributed to a back-stabbing, CYA way of doing things. I would not go back.

Pros

Compensation was good

Cons

No overtime, poor office conditions, high stress

Unlimited growth potential

I worked at Flint Hills Resources for nearly 15 years, and felt that the only limiting factor in my advancement was my desire. The company treated its employees well, they have good benefits, and their focus on safety is absolutely necessary.

Pros

Lots of work opportunities

Cons

Long days and TurnArounds
Was this review helpful?

A great starting job with great people, culture is starting to lack honesty and integrity.

When I first heard about the guiding principles I thought, "Finally a place that understands how to run a business and treat employees right based on the value they create." The problem is even though the upper management preaches MBM culture at every turn, they rarely use these principles when presented the chance.Personally I really like the job and the people I work with, however there are a lot more shady and behind the scenes things going on that make it hard to trust what is said. People are more likely to throw you under the bus to make themselves look better than to just try and improve themselves. The problem is, the people that are doing the throwing seem to be the ones that move up the ladder the quickest. The challenge process is a great concept when used correctly, however is seems that operators input is irrelevant if certain individuals higher up the food chain are the ones who came up with the ideas. Great place to gain experience in the field, good pay and benefits for the area, expected to cover other shifts vacations and call ins. Becoming a very tattle-telling and finger pointing culture.

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

Poor upper managment

Its a good place to work

My only issue here is the amount of shutdowns / turnarounds that we have. Which requires working numerous days in a row and is very demanding physically.

Great People, Good culture

Strong emphasis on EHS that goes beyond Industry Standards and oftentimes beyond what is necessary, but results in a safe work environment. For being an privately owned company, decisions and processes are more bureaucratic than would be expected which causes inefficiencies and delays in routine work. The goal for compensation is to find the minimum that they can pay to keep their employees. Overall it is a good place to work.

Pros

Great people, strong safety culture

Cons

Bureaucracy, inefficiencies

Awesome

Great place to work. Many benefits (health insurance, vision insurance, dental insurance, 401k), competitive salary. Safety and Environmental impact are top priorities.

Terrible people in management roles

Worst experience ever it’s all about who you know just to get by. The worst people in charge of things. Good enough to gain experience then take them elsewhere.

Pros

Pay and benefits

Cons

Terrible management and Rules

Double standards for employees

Fhr management preaches the guiding principles and importance of values/beliefs but fails to recognize those employs who exemplify the right characteristics. The company has placed more emphasis on what the competition is doing rather than being innovators. The lean approach has caused the company to lose most of its talent. There is a revolving door for employees across the entire company because of a vision that is broken between operations and senior management. Operations personel recognize the gaps/opportunities but their input is often passed up for the ideas of individuals who know very little about the ethanol industry.

Pros

401k matching

Cons

Poor management, work environment, work/life balance

Competitive

Pay scale is competitive; team players only need apply. Great bonuses very 6 months, paid vacation, and sick leave. Health benefits are comparable to others in the market.

Pros

Great Benefits

Lots of stress in the role

The on call duty was to be minimum of seven times a year and ended up being 10+ due to being short handed all the time. There was always someone out of the office so those who came to work carried their work load. With a minimum of sick days unused, I felt that the others took advantage of the sick days on a regular basis.

Excellent refinery to work in

My career was cut short by a mistake I made by not following a safety procedure. Flints Hills refinery was by far the best job I'd ever had in my 23 years in my field of work. I highly recommend this company, the pay is above average for the area, raises are merit based and fair, but you must follow all safety regulations to the letter, which is an excellent expectations considering the type of environment

Pros

Great pay, excelent schedule, wonderful benefits

Open to being challenged

The company has a MBM Culture which is nice because they really value their guiding principles and want everybody to succeed. The supervisors are open to new ideas and evaluating you on a weekly basis so you know your strengths and weaknesses.

Pros

Excellent benefits

Cons

No minority leaders

Relaxed and lackadaisical

The Management is very Hypocritical. They would like for you to buy into their MBM Philosophy but will not embrace it personally and apply it in their work. They continue to embrace a Good Ole Boy system and refuse to be Leaders, instead choose to blame their Senior Leaders for the lack of compensation and advancement.

Pros

Relaxed

Cons

Poor Leadership, Compensation is below industry
