    I worked at INEOS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent training provided in the form of variety in process industry equipment. Got to experience full operating and shutdown regimes on a host of static and rotating equipment. Had great support and guidance especially my mentor at the time.

    Cons

    Limited scope in solving complex issues on-site. It became routing sending out requests to contractors to solve technical matters on processing equipment rather than developing the technical knowledge in-house and developing those engineers who wanted to progress down the technical route. More of the focus was spent on the upkeep of the plant rather than training the engineers on preventative schemes and technical in-house solutions.

    Pros

    Forward thinking, ambitious, team work oriented, expectations to deliver the best, highest commitment to health and safety, management teams well structured.

    Cons

    High workload but support given. Power of making decisions in your remit with full accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Most people in the management are there because they outshine most people. INEOS is a great company to work for, your objectives are equally important down below the chain. Let's work together.

    I have been working at INEOS full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Immediate colleagues and line manager are fantastic, a genuinely great team to work with. There's also a focus on work life balance and keeping healthy, you're encouraged to take part in sport.

    Cons

    Cost control is so extreme that it's to the detriment of efficiency because of sign off processes. Unless you're classed as what INEOS calls a "senior" employee you don't seem to matter at all, there's very little investment in training and development, career progression is nonexistent unless you're already one of the "trusted few" and you're only considered worthy of benefits if you're in the top 5% of employees.
