      Pros

      Great company and great people. Company has always put employees in the forefront. Healthcare benefits are top notch and a great incentive plan and retirement package as well. Career opportunities were great. Once the CFO was replaced, moral skyrocketed. Current CEO has done a great job changing the culture to focus on empowerment and growth.

      Cons

      Company sold to Parker Hannifin

      Advice to Management

      Hoping you take care of your people in the sales agreement.

      I have been working at LORD Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Profitable and privately held (for the time being at least.) Good opportunities for people that want to work hard. Stable work environment. Competitive benefits.

      Cons

      Company gives a lot of lip service to promoting the interests of women but falls short of actually promoting women. Based on what I see in our address book, only about 18% of staff and senior staff level positions are filled by women out of 40% of the company being women. There is a lack of diversity in upper levels, old boys club. Near total depletion of female leadership over last few years.

      Advice to Management

      Promote women and minorities instead of just talking about it. Return employee stock program. Keep company privately help, be transparent with employees.

      I have been working at LORD Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Great company, niche technology products, makes money, global footprint. Stable work environment.

      Cons

      Company eliminated the long term stock participation plan 2-3 years back, big disadvantage for newer managers. Plan enabled wealth build-up for executives and select managers by allowing to buy LORD stock, a very stable investment over years. Even banks gave low-interest loans for LORD stock purchases. LORD would additionally match the stock amounts with equivalent stocks by giving interest free loans. The stock value...

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

      Pros

      Excellent benefits, competitive salary, flexible to life's needs.

      Cons

      Mandatory overtime requirements, unrealistic documented expectations (effective standards very high on some jobs)

      Advice to Management

      Guide associates to success through training and incentive. Saying that, "firings will continue" only alienates the workforce, and destroys trust between associates and management. Lord is too good of a company to lead it's flock by fear.
