Same broken formula

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsGreat benefits and pleasant co-workers

ConsNo opportunity for advancement without crossing over to another business segment. They continuously bring in talented people with beneficial experience and inadvertently force them to overly multitask with job duties that should belong to other departments. This results in everything being disorganized and everyone being confused.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote from within the business segment and then externally hire for the non-management professional positions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Grace is clearly a company in transition.

    I have been working at W. R. Grace


    Pros: Talented, caring employees who typically work in teams. Interesting work that holds… Cons: The biggest con is the constant fear that today will be your last day-the threat of layoffs and downsizing in… Advice to Senior Management: Care more about what your emplyees are saying-stop making your teams live… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Great employees; mediocre non-risk taking top leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at W. R. Grace


    Pros: Overall excellent mid-level workers; solid product line; great global footprint; generally very successful… Cons: Very fragmented-- works more like multiple companies with top management having more initiatives than they can… Advice to Senior Management: You have lots of great employees- but the Grace does not operate like "one operating company." … No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
