    I have been working at Lloyd's Register full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to pursue your career of choice. I have worked with LR for almost a decade and have worked in several countries and have asked for and received several new opportunities with the organization. The benefits are good and the global support system is great as I can go to almost any country and visit the office and feel a part of the organization. Plenty of room to make a difference and a great management support system. The services that we offer are so expansive, we can almost solve any problem or provide any solution.

    One of the best things about this organization is that if you have a great solution and your client values it, you can take the solution and turn it into a product and use this product globally. In addition to this, it is very easy to move up the responsibility ladder if you can give confidence to your management team that you can help support them and your team. This has opened several opportunities for several people within the organization.

    One thing about reviews is that you tend to only get negative reviews on a site like this as most of the people looking for jobs are dissatisfied with their current one or let go. Thus it is difficult to see positive reviews, which is why I am leaving one as I am happy with my organization. LR is really a great company and they do care about what people say, thus as a current employee, I am reading these reviews to help address these items.

    Cons

    The fact that it is a global organization can pose it's challenges. Some team members have a negative attitude and tend to only worry about their issues and not voice their opinions when called upon. As seen on these reviews, some of the management team could use some help, but it goes both ways. I have to do what I can to tell my manager what I feel is an issue. The support services could use some work, specifically IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to new ideas and taking risks. This could be the best company in the Energy services industry, but we let less crucial items get in the way of potential success. Promote great leaders and maximize team member strengths. Always strive for success and to be the best.

A lot of people think Lloyd's Register is involved in insurance. Or that LR is connected to Lloyd’s of London. The truth is actually quite different.

Our work for the most part is highly technical. We’re more likely to hire an expert in structural engineering or stress analysis than someone with an insurance background.

That’s because we’re involved in the certification, inspection and validation of major physical assets – from ships and oil rigs to industrial plants and railway rolling stock.

By independently assuring these assets, we give our clients the... More
