    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    management is approachable. Any ideas are good ideas. It is a great public company to develope hands-on experiences.

    Process improvement is crucial for any organization development. I believe internal audit is a great way to assist a company to transform to a better stage.

    I worked at Quaker Chemical (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Leadership has integrity.

    The company is growing and appears to have a solid plan in place to keep the growth going, but is being strategic about it.

    There seems to be a genuine focus on doing the right thing for the customers and the employees.

    It's a global company but the leadership doesn't lose sight of the individual employees.

    Cons

    Seemed to underinvest in product development. R&D should be a focus to stay on top of the competetion.

    Chemical Manufacturing isn't an exciting industry.

    Understand need to keep associates engaged.

    Cons

    Still relatively small. This makes it difficult for advancement.

    Never forget the associates. They are the key to success. Keep listening and actively seek their input.
