I am looking to further my career in IT. I’ve researched a few companies with thoughts of putting in applications online. Can anyone give me honest feedback? I’m mainly concerned about attrition, layoffs, culture, employee engagement and career mobility. Thank you.

Very toxic work environment. I saw more than 100% turnover in my group over a three year period. Nobody lasts at LYB.
Horrifically toxic company, especially in IT. They can't seem to get someone good leading IT. The only way to get out of the mess they are in is to start pulling functions back in house. Hire a people centric IT leader and let them do their job without interference. Understand the concept of "penny wise, pound foolish"
Run from Lyondellbasell IT as fast as you can. An severely understaffed mess.
In LYB it’s a dead end carrer, with a culture if distrust and stabbing in the back, managing by fear and red tape policies to lay off employees.
Expect to work long hours, hence your hourly wage is going to be much lower than market average.
Retaliation is common and if somebody doesn’t like or you speak up about problems they put you in a performance improvement process to burnout you so you’ll leave the company
