  1. 2.0
    Former Employee, more than 3 years

    stable workplace but bureaucratic and disengaging

    Feb 25, 2021 - Customer Service Representative in Billingham, England, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    good salary for this kind of role, good pension, international environment,

    Cons

    incompetent leadership, boring or stressful job - days in between are rare, no career progression possibility, internal transfer practically impossible (only those who butter up to management stand a chance), no appreciation of hard work, preference towards less ambitious employees who will be satisfied with mediocre job, no HR department onsite (remote service from South), bullying - management is aware but not doing much, toxic employees kept in the job, very bureaucratic company, employees are told only what they need to know - as little as possible and they are not involved in decision making, issues swept under carpet, job is called "customer service" but it involves much more responsibility and stress

    Good if you are the manager's pet and willing to have no social life

    Apr 10, 2017 - Customer Service Representative in Stockton-on-Tees, England, England

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Good salary - 1 hour lunch break - private health insurance

    Cons

    - Lots of backstabbing and bitchiness. Trust no one! - They don't recognise what you good but always tell you what you do wrong - Almost impossible to get promoted. - End of the month is sacred and you have to stay till late if required (I have seen people staying till 10pm or 11pm). If you don't, you get bad looks and digs. They say that it is required that all staff give their best even though if this means not having breaks. - They try to make that this job is your life by encouraging you to do overtime and sometimes not getting paid for it. - High turnover - Clueless management since they fired the most experienced staff - Don't get sick too often or they will use it to get you into trouble, they could even sack you! I had a mate who got her probation review brought forward because her mom died and she was absent for too long. They thought they would prove a point!!! - If you have problems with your work colleagues, your team leader won't do anything about it and will keep a record to prove you are a troublemaker and can't work cooperatively.

    Former Employee, more than 10 years

    Lack of succession management and career planning

    May 19, 2013 - Manufacturing Project Manager in Cambridge, East of England, England, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Salary, bonus, flexible working. The company tries hard but really is only concerned with the generation of profit at the expense of employees lives and futures.

    Cons

    Lack of training, career development and succession management. Despite numerous progress reviews and being told above average or in the talent bank nothing is really done.

    Pros

    Every day is different, the team really pull together to support one another. Get to learn about all sectors of the business as you are constantly liaising with them to solve blocks. Family feel across the Huntsman corporation. Even Jon Huntsman himself comes to visit and makes you feel valued and part of his own extended family. I am proud to work for Huntsman.

    Cons

    Job can be difficult and stressful.
