      Pros

      Great work-life balance. Growth opportunities, if you seek it. Great culture, if you have an "Accountability" mind-set.

      Cons

      Regardless of experience, one will be eliminated immediately if they do not have a degree. Most positions require no less than a bachelor's degree (non-exempt admin roles are available for one with AA).

      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.

      Lubrizol is a large company that genuinely cares about employees, customers, environment and the communities it serves.

      Pros

      Lubrizol promotes both good business practices and a work life balance. There are infinite career opportunities that span not only the industries that Lubrizol serves but also globally in the many countries they are present in. Management is supportive of growth not only with on the job training but also formal classes and programs offered both internally and externally. There are many ways in which the company is utilizing new technology to promote effeciency as well as effectiveness. Lubrizol is a community that promotes camaraderie during work hours and on personal time with the many Business Resource Groups they have formed. One of my fondest memories is participating in the Cystic fibrosis challenge in which Lubrizol always sponsored a team for charity. I love working for this company, the pros are endless. From our CEO to contributers, employees care about our work and building a sense of pride in our products and services.

      Cons

      There are honestly not a lot of cons working for Lubrizol. Probably the number one issue is the headquarters are located in North East Ohio and the winters are brutal! Lubrizol is a large company so many times decisions and changes might take a little longer to come to fruition.

      Used to be good

      Pros

      Most of the workers are hardworking, smart, and talented. Lubrizol is actively working to improve the safety culture. Insurance and 401k are average for chemical plants in the area. Base pay is good, but don't expect as much in bonuses as other companies.

      Cons

      Below average on work flexibility and time off for the area (salary workers only get 9/80s during non-holiday pay periods, so you are losing ~8 days compared to industry peers.) Work-life balance is not good, managers have actually stated that they don't care how many hours you work. Management has questionable judgement and borders on unethical, is petty, finger points a lot, can't admit mistakes, and is inefficient. Lubrizol is going through a culture change where they preach accountability, but it only applies to workers, not management. You will spend a lot of time here fire-fighting and catering to politics. The company runs lean, and they keep adding large projects while cutting the budget. However, they somehow are able to find the budget to add more managers.
