    I have been working at Quaker Chemical full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Having worked at other global public companies so I have a good frame of reference. This company is fair, great work environment, management really cares about Associates (not employees), work is challenging but not overwhelming, and company is growing. Global nature allows you to work with and interact with colleagues from around the world. Company invests in systems and modern collaboration tools.

    Cons

    Any "con's" are very minor in nature

    Advice to Management

    Keep on believing in and supporting your Associates and continue to grow the company. Continue to reward loyalty, dedication and invest in your Associates to be the leaders of tomorrow.

    Pros

    Flexible, fair and honest organization. Does not make promises it cannot keep
    Management strives to promote from within
    Flat & matrix organization that allows individuals to grow within their role. Great opportunity to develop and grow if willing to relocate
    Great opportunity for those into R&D, chance to technologically contribute in a major way to the primary metals, metalworking, coatings and grease lubrication industries

    Cons

    Movement within the organization tends to be slow as understanding the business, technologies, customers and their processes takes time to develop.

    Pros

    Shrinking market place and the company seems to be in the right place at the right time lately.Not perfect, but it is a company that is geared for people that can do on their own and don't need hand holding.

    Cons

    They are overly cautious and move slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in touch with the sales force.Seem to be out of touch for long periods of time.
