    I have been working at Innospec full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company vehicle, great snacks, and decent benefits

    Cons

    No time paid out for being on call, you can get terminated for complaining, scheduling is awful, there isn’t any formal training

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to understand your employees. The tough guy aggressive attitude will only get you so far. Recognize when one manager is thwarting the potential production in the name of personal pride.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Innospec full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If I’m being completely honest, there were none. Overworked. Underpaid. Team boosting meetings consisted of “Work harder, do more, we’ll get there some day.”

    Cons

    Turnaround is ridiculous. Moral support from management is lacking. Bonus program is only good if you’re upper management.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Innospec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Average Benefits and OK pay

    Cons

    No Marketing, Poor Internal Communication, Disorganized, Ancient Infrastructure. Without the protections afforded to suppliers in a strictly regulated Fuels Additive Market, competition would have destroyed the firm long ago.

    Advice to Management

    Accept any offer to purchase the company and retire early before the stock price deflates like the Hindenburg.

    Pros

    Management is strong and supportive but not overbearing. They let you run your account without being overbearing and don't micromanage. Overall an excellent place to work

    Cons

    Drive time is usually upwards of an hour one way for most of the sales team. Trucks have the company decal on them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting your employees.

    I have been working at Innospec part-time

    Pros

    Friendly office environment, great hardworking people that are helpful, events for employees and interns to contribute to and participate in, fair pay.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are slower periods of time with a light workload, which makes staying busier a bit more challenging - but overall not a huge issue.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with employee events to keep the morale up, it keeps the employees and interns happy, interacting, and invested.
