      Pros

      A truly unique company! Methanex has a fantastic corporate culture that creates a great place to work and learn. There is an opportunity to make a valuable impact at all levels of the organization which provides an empowering work environment and lots of potential to learn new things everyday. A very talented group of people offering engaging work – a great place to be!

      Cons

      Susceptible to market volatility which can be unsettling for those who are not familiar with these cycles, however, the company does a great job of positioning themselves to withstand these periods and come out on the other end stronger than before.

      Pros

      Great corporate culture. Invest and care about their people and make them feel valued. Work with a team of very intelligent, innovative and talented individuals. Salary, benefits, work environment great. Opportunities to travel and work on global teams. First company I have worked in that the majority of the Executive team spend time with their employees and know almost everyone by name.

      Cons

      Smaller company so opportunities for promotion can take longer.

      Pros

      Great company to work for. It has a great culture and you really do get the sense that there is "One Team" in getting things done. Each person is given a lot of responsibility and expected to perform; this is empowering. Managers are couched to support their staff and encourage professional development. Overall, a very professional company with a good working environment.

      Cons

      Very lean and flat organization with specific hiring needs which means that they do not have regular recruitment drives. It depends on need and openings at any given time.
