      Great Place to Work

      Apr 7, 2021 - Engineer in Woodward, OK

      Pros

      CF Industries is a great place to work. If you take time to learn the different work processes (not talking about the manufacturing process) and take time to meet the people you will be set. The culture is great. People are friendly, and the site is small enough that you could meet most of the employees. There is a lot of work, and sometimes it isn't easy to work based on priorities. However, as long as you ask questions and communicate, you will be fine. You will have the opportunity to bring new ideas, and if there are good, it will be implemented. Management is open to listening to anyone.

      Cons

      Depending on your role, the workload could be heavy. Shift work is not for everyone. However, the operator's pay is great. If you are salary, outage and turnarounds hours are more difficult as there is no compensation for working extra hours. The location could be difficult for someone not used to small towns.

      HORRIBLE LEADERSHIP AND HORRIBLE PLACE TO WORK

      Pros

      Five word minimum....they have a nice kitchen and free waters

      Cons

      I have worked for a few different places in my professional career and have always taken my job seriously. I was extremely excited when I got a job at CF industries because everyone I talked to that worked there (who was currently still there) said it was a FANTASTIC place to work. I talked to a few others that had worked at the company previously who had a much different outlook. They said it was horrible and the worst place they had ever worked...like I'm conveying now. I assumed that they were just sour because they were no longer with the company and there had to be a good reason for that but little did I know just how wrong I was. I will go ahead and jump into one of their policies right here among the many controversial policies the company has WHICH are not supposed to leave the lock and key facility doors. There are a few criteria that puts an employee in position to receive a raise among the criteria at the top of the list is,go figure, reflects that CF industries is a great place to work! Ah, so could this be the reason current employees reflected that it was such a fantastic place? Next, if you are a new person get ready, the place is an HR nightmare and speaking of HR they would pop in and say, Hi!, every now and then but when you called HR 99% of the time you got an answering machine. When leaving a very valid question or needing help with typical HR issues that could be answered very easily you would wait weeks without a word back. So what do you do? You go in YOUR free time and track down someone who is in HR, mind you half the time they are out of the office, and when you do get to them they don't know the answer but they PROMISE they will get it for you and get back to you. Days go by, weeks, and then you just say the heck with it. Now they will exemplify that SAFETY is their number one priority, but that is one of the biggest jokes in the entire place next to management. First of all the plant is so outdated with little plans to upgrade that I would not build a house within 100 miles of this facility. They have PLENTY of continuing education courses your expected to finish while at work while doing the multiple jobs that you are responsible for safely and efficiently. Every manager, supervisor etc. is well aware that one person does these test and passes the answers around to everyone else who just fills them in and does not read the first sentence in ANY of the courses. Among this and falsified JHAs as well as a host of other crap paper work "safety". Why do the let this bull go on you ask? Because they need to meet production rate, and be safe (lol) or look safe on paper so that in the event that someone gets hurt they can pull this up and whala there is the paper work for their defense in court to say the incident was your fault (of course not CF industry's) and their defense is signed and dated by YOU! Their "safety" is a "safety net" for THEM in order to protect them in litigation and to make them look good ON PAPER for insurance and OSHA purposes, but they will assure you your safety is their number one concern...in a way it is because they don't want to get sued when you get a life changing injury as a result of their negligence. All the information is there books after books after class after class after safety contest etc. you can not t urn around without seeing the word or hearing the word safety at the plant. BUT by the time you digest all the material and read all the books and take all the classes and truly KNOW how to REALLY be safe out there you could be a Doctor, Lawyer etc. But they show you where the books are, give you the answers to the test, and make it look like you know enough then you are asked to sign documents that say you know this information " and they know dang well you do not know the information well enough, but HEY your signing the documents so that's on you right? Next is upper management, it is very clear that the manager of this location is going through the motions to please upper management in order to get into good graces with the "bigwigs" in order to move up. He is not as concerned with operations only to the extent of doing the most he can do please upper management. Don't get me wrong, the individual is a hard worker but he has personal goals in mind and everyone below a certain level of hierarchy is just a warm body doing a job and he is NOT scared to send you home and replace you. The turnaround rate here is not high, its astronomical, moral is so low that they had to have multiple meetings in multiple areas because people were leaving the company because it did not matter if you had been there for 40 years, they would remove you and have you replaced the next day for ridiculous reasons. If you are a new employee get ready, although you may end up in a group with some good guys, there are some individuals there that will do NOTHING to lift a finger to help you even on your own shift. Be aware that there are people who have been on the same shift for years and have made friends with superiors, or other positions of authority and they will "throw you under the bus" in a heartbeat. This particular location is extremely "clique-ish" and they can use work duties to make your job extremely hard while making others extremely easy, people of authority will push mistakes (sometimes large ones) "under the rug" for their friends while exposing minor mishaps of others . The place has a "we have always done it this way attitude". I believe this plant is an accident waiting to happen. There is high priority to production, with minimal actual safety unless it makes them look good on paper, it is in HR nightmare in a sense of how people are treated, there are people in positions that abuse their position of power. Last but not least, you will spend a lot of your time at the plant, shifts will constantly shift from night to day and you will miss a lot of time with your family and children. They reflect that they pay well but for what you sacrifice it is hardly worth what the pay is. If you are looking for a great job I would highly advise you to look elsewhere. This is purely a reflection of my opinion and nothing more.

      Pros

      A great safety first company

      Cons

      CF Industries tries to run all their operations the same and sometimes it doesn't translate, from one site to another.

      CF Industries has no Integrity, no Leadership, no Accountability and no Clue.

      Pros

      Benefits are decent and opportunities for professional development are reasonable

      Cons

      Company no longer has any integrity. People are promoted because it looks good on paper but they have no relevant experience pertaining to their position. They claim safety is #1. So than why are people in charge that no nothing about real world process safety.Putting a safety supervisor with no operational knowledge in charge of an anhydrous ammonia terminal is reckless and will eventually get someone injured or worse. People that do care and want to do the right thing, are bulldozed by the bureaucracy and will eventually have no morale and cease to care about the work that they do. This in turn feeds the endless cycle of negativity prevalent throughout this company. Which is painfully evident by the employment revolving door. If you are a hard worker and care about your work. AVOID CF Industries
