    I worked at Quaker Chemical full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They have a cafeteria with decent, cheap food. CEO is friendly and a good listener.

    Cons

    I worked in a call-center style cube field. The HQ building is old so the temperature is always uncomfortable. No one can talk without disrupting 60 other people. No one can form fun work friendships because there is no talking. No one calls each other. Everyone sends IMs. The free coffee is so far away that most coffee drinkers have their own coffee makers at their desks.

    Pros

    Some of the nicest, most professional folks you will ever work with. Excellent benefits including health insurance, medical, dental, etc.

    Aging building for the Detroit group- also a very rough neighborhood. The PA office is lovely, and the Ohio office / plant is state of the art.
