    I have been working at Quaker Chemical full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Having worked at other global public companies so I have a good frame of reference. This company is fair, great work environment, management really cares about Associates (not employees), work is challenging but not overwhelming, and company is growing. Global nature allows you to work with and interact with colleagues from around the world. Company invests in systems and modern collaboration tools.

    Cons

    Any "con's" are very minor in nature

    Advice to Management

    Keep on believing in and supporting your Associates and continue to grow the company. Continue to reward loyalty, dedication and invest in your Associates to be the leaders of tomorrow.

    I worked at Quaker Chemical as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * A lot of dedicated, talented people in the labs that really back up the company's tagline
    * Relaxed atmosphere
    * Good overall vision for present and future success
    * For the most part the people are really nice (the last two bullets are why I gave this 3 stars)

    Cons

    * Boss was fired on first day, so it became really disorganized and never recovered.
    * While the people were nice, the marketing department was, at best, a mixed bag. Not very welcoming or communicative, perhaps partially because of the boss being fired - it took a week to get introduced to people and the person who supposed to help get me acclimated told me 3 hours in to "look through that pile of papers and see what you find and stuff."
    * Traffic can be brutal, even if you take back roads.

    Advice to Management

    Make the environment more inclusive and welcoming to new hires.
