Good people on site shop floor with plenty of experience but too much input from a poor management infrastructure which has led to site shutting down due to lack of people who can make decisions when it matters and have to much to say on matters that don’t concern them. Huge blame culture which gives a negative vibe on the site
Complete and utter shambles working in an environment were nothing works and nothing gets fixed - safety a complete joke lifts that have been condemned still get used. Management are completely incompetent and only look at things that will benefit themselves. A lot of bullying from older management and favouritism. Was told in interview I could progress to a shift job in 12 months 18 months later just got constant lies and false promises from useless managers. Avoid this place at all costs worst company i have worked for in my life glad I got out.
Everything about the job/place.
Over rated remember you are working with dangerous gas and liquids at high pressures . You have to be a yes man if you are good at your job you will struggle to adapt . Safety when it suits they spend allot of money on Safety advisors when the money would be better spent on materials and new plant equipment. To many managers for the same job a waste of money that plant was to create local jobs .It never they come from far and wide to work there
it lights up the sky
it keeps you from getting a good sleep with the noise and light pollution
Only get a job on a who you know basis, everyone around the sites has a relative, parent or friend somewhere in the place which got them a job! People who know nothing about the role or plant get priority due to family connections within the site. Incidents and accidents tried to get swept under the carpet.. favouritism for the plant managers golden boys. Even the work force just seem to sit talking about each other, unfortunately the place has turned very two faced over the years..
Good work atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. Excellent career prospects across multiple sites. Company willing to help staff gain further education.
work life balance
Poor management throughout the company. The older staff get away with all sorts but the newer staff are targeted and blamed for things that go wrong. A degree of bullying & victimisation going on from the management and older staff members. HR do not have a clue what they are doing or how to handle situations.
The company is growing and still developing it's corporate culture. I have learned a lot in the 7 years that I have been here. I work as part of a small team, and as such have a wide range of responsibilities and decisions I have to make. Management structure is very flat, limited oppurtunities for promotion.
In most ways they were not so bad, but management could be very petty & childish thinking that they are so superior, most of the management carry on like they are in Westminster or something not normal or mature. And some of the workforce are so lazy and disgusting you would not believe that they can hold a job down.
When working in such an unpredictable industry as Oil and Gas on Teeside it makes it a lot more easier when you have great work mates around you, Making your work a lot more easier and a lot more safer to work in.
Good Communication is one of the main values to a happier workforce
The Oil and Gas industry is an unpridictuble place at the moment when it comes to job security
My average days involved various jobs for completion, whether it was inventorying salvaged components from the defunct areas, managing tape backups once a month, or replacing faulty fans on cooling units. During my time at INEOS, I learned how to use a soldering iron to remove and install fans. I also learned how to take tape backups for Sun Microsystems computers, and replace components on various models. On the software site, I learned how to draw and distribute graphics for both the NativeWindow and Experion control programs. My manager was inspiring. He always tried to introduce new tasks to keep me busy when needed. My co-workers were friendly and fun to work with. I found areas of leisure and work to relate to my co-workers, which isn't always easy for me. The hardest part of the job was balancing time requirements for various tasks. Sometimes, I would be waiting on prerequisites for graphics, but have no other graphics or hardware work to do in the meantime. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the work taking backups and creating graphics. I felt accomplished having a regular responsibility when taking and verifying graphics, as well as working to requirements when making graphics - both time requirements and specific design requests. Overall, I enjoyed my overall time at INEOS both as a temp and as a permanent member of staff. If they asked me back, I would happily work for them again.
Good hours, interesting work, fair pay and holidays, cheap Starbucks :-)
While I was told at the outset that Ineos don't hire chemists full time, this was still good experience of working in an industrial setting. Aside from my daily duties as an analytical chemist in the lab, I learned about industrial safety issues, corporate social responsibility and firefighting techniques. My co-workers and line manager did their best to make me feel welcome as an intern. Overall a useful way to spend the summer break.
Lasted 36 years, so, I enjoyed working there. It was a very regulated workplace and the potential for probems existed daily. The company had a very safe working environment in the work planning. I had excellent colleagues to work with over the years.
