    I have been working at Lubrizol full-time

    Pros

    As a market leader in many of their categories, Lubrizol can leverage its strength which makes negotiating with vendors a lot simpler. There is a heavy emphasis on coaching and this has proven to be very impactful in my own career development. The new(er) CEO is driving a cultural shift that will help to align the corporation with the most effective practices and reignite a growth trajectory. The basic cultural values are outstanding. Great work / life balance.

    Cons

    Cultural change is hard and there will always be resistors. There is currently a minor clash of old and new culture. This is too be expected and I am convinced won't last long. Or at least, the resistors wont last...Additionally, it is a company that is modernizing its digital e commerce / marketing. It is on the right path, but currently behind in many digital marketing areas.

    Advice to Management

    You are on the right track. Keep it up. Change is a pain, but much needed and well in progress.
