    I worked at NewMarket Corporation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    NewMarket has a great work atmosphere, one of the benefits of being a family company, everyone seemed to really enjoy their work.They encouraged a healthy work and personal life balance. Great company to work for.

    Cons

    The pay was not as competitive as some other companies but that is balanced by the expectation of a 40 hour (or less) work week

    I have been working at NewMarket Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    High energy, very productive environment. Morale is very high, pay is comparable, location is great. Freedom to do what needs to be done to succeed is far higher than anywhere else I've ever worked.

    Cons

    Rapid growth is causing a lot of change, which can be pretty painful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening, and pay attention to core investment in boring stuff like infrastructure, HR, IT and training, not just R&D, supply and marketing.

    I worked at NewMarket Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management and employees are great to work with. Great work life balance. Awesome benefits and pension plan.

    Cons

    Low turnover so not much opportunity for growth. Corporate office in Richmond, VA if you don't like the cold.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing because employees love to work there. Therefore, there is low turnover and some younger employees can't grow because older employees not leaving which is not a bad problem to have.

    Ideal environment for chemists and mechanical engineers.

    Work becomes repetitive and you can get tired of working on a limited range of products.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work because you have good R&D but need to improve your marketing.
