    I worked at Chemtool inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People who work on the floor are great, and the company has very good healthcare, dental and vision coverage as well as a good 401k program

    Cons

    Management has no clue what they are doing, employees are shown no appreciation for a job well done and are overall treated very badly. Work environment is very unsafe

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect and spend more time on the floor learning about what is actually going on

    Pros

    Good marketing and brand position. Good people to work with, relaxed environment for the most part.Nice office space.

    Cons

    Poor management and accountability systems. Going though change with larger company purchase. Divided groups between Chemtool people and Lubrizol people. Overly bureaucratic systems. Lack of teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Need to communicate better and allow for people to solve problems differently than they would. Establish and educate staff better on expectations and milestones and then follow up on them better.

    Pros

    Not too much is good here. Depressing & dead end job. Not a good environment. Don't do it. Never appreciaTed or compensated.

    Cons

    Horrible rude management. Blame games. No accountability. Pay is HORRIBLE!!! Miserable miserable place to work. Look into the faces of employees who have been there for more than 6 months & you will see the misery & pain. STAY AWAY RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN. This company will deflate & defeat you.

    Advice to Management

    Take some classes & learn what being a manager means. Not strut around & blame employees. You are all the reason everything is in chaos & orders are late & customers are pulling business. You can BS Lubrizol & Warren Buffet..... But they too will catch on eventually
