    Pros

    management is approachable. Any ideas are good ideas. It is a great public company to develope hands-on experiences.

    I worked at Quaker Chemical (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Leadership has integrity. The company is growing and appears to have a solid plan in place to keep the growth going, but is being strategic about it. There seems to be a genuine focus on doing the right thing for the customers and the employees. It's a global company but the leadership doesn't lose sight of the individual employees.

    Cons

    Seemed to underinvest in product development. R&D should be a focus to stay on top of the competetion. Chemical Manufacturing isn't an exciting industry.
