Top Quality People

R&D Specialist (Current Employee) Baton Rouge, LA

ProsAlbemarle hires highly skilled people and expects a lot of work out of you. As a company there is much good to say about Albemarle it has survived for almost 100 years constantly reinventing itself as old products go away there are new ones to replace it. The lower managers are top notch people in general. Highly experienced and generally really nice people.

ConsThere are fairly frequent waves of layoffs. There is forced ranking which can create an unnecessarily unsettling work environment. Young people are identified by management and promoted regularly often at the expense of others who are smarter and may work harder. The performance review system is rife with favoritism. Facilities are not well maintained.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
