    Pros

    Environment is amazing, they will work with you if you need time off for something (funeral, etc) as well as give you lots of opportunities to make real contributions.

    Cons

    Not many open positions (non-intern) in states with established facilities. Most openings are in newly opened/constructed facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    nurturing environment to grow in

    Cons

    Keep quiet and get your stuff done and you'll be up for the next step. Being a squeaky wheel isn't a good thing.

    Pros

    People are great, not much pressure, very team oriented, good benefits..

    Cons

    It's hard to know who is responsible for anything. Managers are slow to make decisions, even simple ones. Strong ethics which should be good, but seems like people are afraid of doing something wrong. Too much focus on ethics? Pay is not great but benefits are good. Lot of employees just show up and don't do much work.

    Advice to Management

    Top treating everyone the same. Give people who work really hard more than the people who hang out chit chatting all day.

    Pros

    Management does not "micro-manage" - they trust you to do your work. I am on my third assignment and I hope to get hired in. They pay better than any company I have ever worked for and seem to value their employees. I also have had very pleasant working conditions - an office or a nice cubicle and enjoyable work. Most of the people are very friendly and welcoming towards me.

    Cons

    I haven't found any yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Lubrizol is a great company with excellent benefits, and very competitive pay rates and the people are nothing less than amazing! The corporate and management culture is relaxed while there is a major feeling of being a part of the team. Expectations and goals are set high, but the support is present to help all employees achieve their set goals. It is clear that management truly wants to help their teams succeed.

    Cons

    There are none to report, as of yet.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the business and your people!

    Pros

    They have some really good benefits such as profit sharing and 401k matching

    Cons

    Health insurance has recently tanked, not that it is entirely their fault

    Advice to Management

    Keep quality benefits and you'll keep me happy, give me crap and I'll give you crap.

    Pros

    Lubrizol promotes both good business practices and a work life balance. There are infinite career opportunities that span not only the industries that Lubrizol serves but also globally in the many countries they are present in. Management is supportive of growth not only with on the job training but also formal classes and programs offered both internally and externally. There are many ways in which the company is utilizing new technology to promote effeciency as well as effectiveness. Lubrizol is a community that promotes camaraderie during work hours and on personal time with the many Business Resource Groups they have formed. One of my fondest memories is participating in the Cystic fibrosis challenge in which Lubrizol always sponsored a team for charity. I love working for this company, the pros are endless. From our CEO to contributers, employees care about our work and building a sense of pride in our products and services.

    Cons

    There are honestly not a lot of cons working for Lubrizol. Probably the number one issue is the headquarters are located in North East Ohio and the winters are brutal! Lubrizol is a large company so many times decisions and changes might take a little longer to come to fruition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Employees really appreciate your dedication to our well being both during work hours and personal time. You make us feel important and appreciated.

    Pros

    Routine town meetings to discuss the state of the particular site were a designated priority

    Cons

    The information given to the employees was always vague and gave little knowledge to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Communication that adds nothing to the knowledge base of the employees is worthless.


  11. Friendly, motivating culture.
