A great company suffering from poor management and a VERY difficult economy

Management (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Quaker Chemical

ProsLeader in their field, excellent employees with a strong work ethic. People that work for Quaker outside of management have a very strong need to see the company succeed. A Company that will rebound once it cleans out current management and it gets through the current economic pressures.

ConsVery thin organization, poor management and lack of understanding their industry. Not very versitile and relies on two basic industries (Auto, Steel) which are both suffering greatly. Technology is not a key element for either business since there are no real breakthroughs. This opens the door for competitive threat given the fact there is nothing special or unique.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to listen to your employees, learn your industry. Your senior management is too young and inexperienced for the tough times you are facing

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
