    Pros

    Good benefits, clean environment. Decent work life balance, marginally innovative.

    Cons

    No loyalty, little support from immediate managers. Managers moved to positions they are not familiar with and will not spend time learning what their employees are up against. Very much a good old boy and girl culture. Lack of training.

    Vacation time is very good to start

    Cons

    They are very unfair with their wages between women and men

    Watch wages when a man and women have same job description and when one has more education and work experience and gets paid less

    Pros

    Great place for to build a career. Hard work and dedication are recognized and rewarded. There are good opportunities for advancement. My managers have been very interested in helping me grow and advance my career. Compensation and benefits are more than competitive for the area.

    Cons

    Changes in management can translate into major changes in direction,focus. This can be disruptive. Diversity is fairly low. I don't feel that the company discriminates, but females and minorities may feel isolated, particularly in manufacturing locations. Work life balance can be difficult, expectations on time and performance are high.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on overall improvement and growth - avoid emphasizing a particular metric over others, such as a dollar value sales goal by a particular year. Maintain balanced approach, make sure growth opportunities are smart and are supported for the long term. Grow your employees and add diversity.

    Pros

    People and work environment are top notch

    Cons

    Way too focused on very short term financial results at the expense of investments to drive real growth.

    Advice to Management

    Need to let managers take more risk and pursue bold ideas to change business models and drive innovative growth at a faster pace. Senior management remains too conservative due to pressure to deliver very short term financial results.

    Pros

    The day I found a new job and left Lord

    Cons

    -Private company controlled by a cartel of Erie Townies. The position you are hired into is the position you will die in unless you leave
    -1970s company mindset, resist to any change, unqualified leadership who our completely out of touch with reality outside of the LORD Dimension, very silo-ed and company is carved up in warring fiefdoms. I mean every company has its internal politics but if you want to see politics on steroids go to Lord!

    Advice to Management

    Sell the the company! Soon as the patent runs out on Chemlock Lord is going Belly up. For those thinking of joining Lord there is a reason you never heard of this company till you got called for an interview or applied to it.
