management varies from business to business, group to group. Unprofessional management harms productivity. Unfair working environment causes a high turnover and cannot keep talents

DuPont Schedule, shift work. One person per shift at Baytown location, and overtime is minimal, so if you don’t like overtime this is great. Pay scale is about in the middle compared to other companies, higher than some but lower than the bigger companies. Medical Benefits are average to good, 401k company match is average, but not great. Overall it is not a bad company to work for.

I had a very good run at Hexion. It is filled with good people who all do their best to work together. While some degree of overtime was always expected, the last few years have been difficult as many people who have left have not been replaced and their duties have been spread around to those who remained. That left many people spread very thinly with an increased stress level.

Specialty chemical manufacturing is a rapidly changing (day-to-day) market. Each day brought interesting questions to answer, usually with responses needed very quickly to take advantage of marketing opportunities.

It was one of the best places that I have worked for. They crossed trained you to know more than one thing. The 12 hour shifts were interesting to get used to but it worked great with your life. The only bad part was some managers showed favoritism to employees.
Pros
Pay, cross-training
Cons

No new hire onboarding process. Lacks cultural diversity and inclusion. Antiquated systems, business managed via Excel spreadsheets. Co-workers pleasant and supportive.

Work 8 to 12 hrs a day. Dumping chemicals and making sure they are the right batch then pack out into super sacks or bags. We driving forklifts sit down and stand ups. Have to pay look really close attention to make sure you have the right chemical going into the right batch.

A global company with many functions and activities. You will never get bored. Very cooperative R&D teams but you may meet resistant to change at some manufacturing sites.

Management were on the buddy system that's how they got their job. Some had no knowledge of the role they were in but their friend got them the job anyway. Advancements are hard to come by in maintenance but operations was easier.

There was always an opportunity to learn new skills and be more valuable to the company. Great people with a laid back environment. Left alone to do your work.
