I have been working at W. R. Grace full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

To much big salaries and perks for the big boys

Cons

The profits did not drop in the 1Q, that was the big bonuses they paid out to the CEO's and all the big boys at the top merging out from bankruptcy. But also remember the small hardworking employees at the bottom did not benefit by that. The small employees barely got a bonus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the small employees, Pay more attention. Crack down on managers who are not doing what they are paid to do. Stop giving them all company cars, black berries and I-phones, let them pay for their own like the other overworked employees, who gets nothing. Shame on the CEO.

    I worked at W. R. Grace full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Only good as a career starting place to get some experience.

    Cons

    The company has been making and breaking promises for years now since filling bankruptcy.
    It used to be a career for life place to work but now you always have one foot out the door due to their management changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be HONEST for a change.

    I worked at W. R. Grace full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They care about employees, offer advancement, education reimbursement, excellent benefits.

    Cons

    They relocated the manufacturing operations from Milwaukee to Chicago. I understood the financial reasons, but it was disappointing to lose a job I loved.
