      Used to be great, now under micro management

      Pros

      Used to be a great company to work till current CEO came in. All the employees were like family members. They respect each other and their ablity of work. Each of members do their own favourite and best of them. No micro management at all. Managements believe staff members and staff members do their best for the company. Many talented members were there in each section of department. Even CEO himself sends out unknown individual like me for appreciating my work to help the emergency situation of the company. Previous CEO's speach was always inspiring and fun to listen at annual speach.

      Cons

      Now after current CEO came in, all the atmosphere was changed. Now the company was changed to focus on stock market value rather than actual works in the company. Many of chemists left company told me that there came in micro management and they can not spend time searching for new inventions. This effect was caused by merging another company and micro management concept came in. Each employee tries to show off what they does and tries to lick up management by detail daily verbal report. Management does not like people who wants to do their own way. Employee has to obey management's command which some times is wrong as they don't know the real daily operation in detail.

      Warren Buffett Made a GREAT Investment with Lubrizol

      Pros

      Lubrizol is a great company with excellent benefits, and very competitive pay rates and the people are nothing less than amazing! The corporate and management culture is relaxed while there is a major feeling of being a part of the team. Expectations and goals are set high, but the support is present to help all employees achieve their set goals. It is clear that management truly wants to help their teams succeed.

      Cons

      There are none to report, as of yet.

      Pros

      I have worked for Lubrizol for 15 years and I really do not think I could find another job with the wage/benifit package I receive. It has its downsides but overall it's a great company to work for.

      Cons

      I really do not see a path for advancement without higher education but that is not really there fault, I could go back to school if I wanted to advance.

      Pros

      Lubrizol is a great company with great benefits. They have been around for many years and their employees seem to stay at the company. Management seem to treat the employees fairly.

      Cons

      Hiring contract workers instead of direct hires. I understand temp to hire but some people at Lubrizol were contractors 10 or more years before they were hired on. Others or 3 years or more. If you are going to keep a contractor for a year or more, then there obviously is a need.

      Pros

      LSPI is a great company that is doing very well, even in the current oil market.

      Cons

      Its a smaller company inside a much larger one and it is unclear how difficult it will be to move between jobs/careers.
