Chemical Operator II/ Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NC9 April 2018

Terrible Environment Toxic Workplace
Process Operator (Former Employee) –  Mobile, AL26 February 2018
I worked at the Evonik Plant when they gave the contract to CB&I so technically Evonik did not run the plant and during that time period, it was absolutely toxic. Half the workforce quit because of the lack of management.
Pros
none
Cons
management, pay, workplace

It was okay if you could get on full time
Data Entry Clerk, Inventory (Former Employee) –  Lafayette, IN18 January 2018
Would have been nice to get hired fulltime. But if you were there shorter than me, and had a relative there, you got hired fulltime asap.
No matter how much experience on the job. Not fair at all with Lacosta, who they hire for part time work.
It was a great place to work at, I loved the job I had.
Pros
Free dinner
Cons
Breaks got interrupted from time to time, then no time to get one

FAP Process Operator (Current Employee) –  Peoria, IL15 November 2017
Not a safe environment and dangerous job. Pay and benefits are good. Overall you may become burnt out in this job position rather fairly quickly. If you're looking for hard work with decent pay this is the place to work.

Terrible ungodly 7 day rotating shift
Operator (Current Employee) –  Mapleton, IL9 October 2017
Decent pay once you get through the tier pay system but considerably lower then most chemical operator positions in the area. With very little chance for advancement if your are not indeed part of the little "click". Terrible working hours with possibility of working 84 hrs a week with little as one day off. Therefore work life balance is basically null and void. Can't seem to keep new employees for that very reason not to mention there not fault policies and also having the lowest starting wage of a chemical plant in the area also at a mere 14 dollars per hour.
Pros
Employment
Cons
No work life balance

Great expectations - Disappointing reality
Marketing and Sales (Current Employee) –  Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton, PA7 October 2017
When Evonik acquired our company in January 2017 there was a warm welcome, the promise of jobs for all and an overall impression of honesty and transparency. My expectations were high, but the reality has been disappointing.

Training was poorly planned, inadequate and disjointed. Migration of data from one system to the other has been quite messy and has resulted in excessive work hours for many. The general consensus is that those at the top are focused only on $ and are oblivious to or simply don't care about the impact on the people tasked with clean-up. Decision-making is unfortunately multi-layered and overcomplicates the process, making the company less nimble and efficient.

Competitive salaries and benefits and talented global colleagues are a huge plus, but it does not make up for much of the rest.
Pros
Talented global colleagues and competitive pay and benefits
Cons
Multi-layered, overcomplicated decision making and silo-ed thinking

Good place to work with competitive compensation
Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Garyville, LA31 May 2017
Had a good time working here. Most of the people are easy to get along with and down to earth. Some management can be difficult to get along with, but that's anywhere. The benefits here are good, but the shift schedule can be tough on your body. If I could have this same job in a different location i think that i would have been happier with it. Working in rural Louisiana gets old.
Pros
compensation
Cons
shift schedule, location

I am new to the company
ACCOUNT MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Allentown, PA29 March 2017
Evonik purchased the group in which I work in January 2017. So far, I find the working level people to be qualified and good people. Management has shown to be poor communicators who take a long time to make decisions. The culture is very German, their view of the work'life balance is very skewed to the work side.
