Pros
Cons
  • Limited job openings beyond the internship due to what seemed to be upper management pressures (in 5 reviews)

    Pros

    Some jobs allow you to grow at your own pace. There are a lot of learning opportunities and management supports your growth. Pay and benefits are all competative

    Cons

    Overall, management doesnt seem to hold their employees accountable for doing their job so if you are a hard worker, you will be doing your job, in addition to others that are just showing up and getting paid.

    I have been working at LORD Corporation (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    LORD has a culture of inclusiveness and helpfulness. The rest of the team is ready and willing to help you succeed. The majority of employees are highly competent, and management does a good job directing team efforts. Moving within the organization is possible, and opportunities arise regularly.

    Cons

    Very few downsides, LORD is an excellent company. My main criticism is of management's focus on developing talent and facilitating growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Work with employees to create growth and development opportunities.

    Pros

    They are rather flexible with schedules. There is always interesting work. The projectd provide challenges at every step. They pay me.

    Cons

    It seems to be difficult to rise from within. Management is not always looking out for the interest of their workers.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the middle. There is significant bloat at the middle management level that is not adding value.

    Pros

    The atmosphere and new facility were wonderful. Very young group of guys with some older thrown in. There seems to be a pretty serious age gap between 35 and 45 or so. This is great for young people!

    Also Flex time is great. Get your 80 hours in and you're good to go.

    Cons

    Pay didn't seem great. (I obviously wasn't full time) But observing the full time guys who were worried about debt and who lived together to save money, makes me assume it is on the lower end for starting engineers.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any. The group I was in was wonderful and I wouldn't change a thing. Well actually, there seems to be quite a bit of time wasted making decisions. I had a project that was on hold for 5 weeks or so because the big dogs couldn't figure out if the business was worth going after. My advice would be, to be more decisive!

    I worked at LORD Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and work-life balance.

    Cons

    Leadership is poor, especially in Aerospace and Defense. Small company that thinks they are Boeing or GE. They are very impressed with themselves with really no reason to be.

    Advice to Management

    Resign and move on.
