LyondellBasell Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

LyondellBasell Industries N.V. (NYSE: LYB) is a Dutch-domiciled multinational chemical company with American and European roots, incorporated in the Netherlands, with U.S. operations headquarters in Houston, Texas, and offices in London, UK. The company is the largest licensor of polyethylene and polypropylene technologies. It also produces ethylene, propylene, polyolefins, and oxyfuels.

A current employee shares his experience, "Management has become bottom line concentric at Lyondellbasell. Have seen the loss of long term employees due to push to remove because they "make too much money and benefits". Loss of experience has proven to have an effect on the production of the product; processes, and in some cases safety issues because a new person with experience of 5 years or less is being put in the role of decision making. Executive Management for safety even less experience. Known for reduction of their bottom line in all facets. (Personnel and costs) Plants in dire need of assistance in areas of Maintenance; Production and Safety. Too many managers and not enough personnel to complete work appropriately without working excruciatingly long hours."

Lease Coordinator, Contractor (Former Employee) says

"They work you to death here. Expect to work 12 hours everyday and be stressed the whole time your there. Maybe your turnover rate would be low if you built a great team in all of your departments. They give one individual an amount of work that requires at least three to complete on time. You often feel like your being set up for failure here and they won't listen to any of your suggestions. Talking to any managers about your job is pointless and will only get you terminated. Cons: No parking, low pay, stressful environment, they ignore your opinions"
