The company and mgt. did not seem to know what direction to go. Rotating door in high mgt.
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER & PRODUCT DEVLEOPMENT (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 16, 2018
Typical day 8-5 working and developing new customers.

I learned a lot of technical information on shock and vibration.

Management can not be trusted. It's look out for our self and its about them and how much they can advance over the other.

Culture is from 1924, the company i.e. executives act like a fortune 500 company when the results tell very much different story.

Hardest part of the job was when will they change their mind again on the direction the company will go.

The most enjoyable part was assisting in developing new products.
Pros
Open time to do your thing, healthcare, 401k all good
Cons
The management they seem to chase their tail more than moving forward

Direct Labor & Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYDecember 20, 2017
Based on the work environment, I would not recommend to women. It is a nice workplace, but the manual labor was very difficult. Challenging, but it was very rewarding.

Good company overall, each dept lives and dies by the manager
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Cary, NCNovember 27, 2017
Overall LORD is a great place to work. For a 90+ year old company they are doing amazing things and pivoting to move into new and forward thinking industries. As with any company there are great areas to work, and others where management has no clue. Turnover in a group is usually a good indicator of which side of the fence a group is on.

Best company in the area, but prone to reorganizing on a yearly basis. The people try to do their best work for the company. Safety is the number ONE priority.

Lord Corp review
Cell Operator (Current Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYNovember 18, 2017
A typical day at work is very stressful and difficult. I'm required to run two machines at once. The machines make the environment very hot. I stand a lot and my body hurts afterwards.

Great place to start your career.
anonymous (Former Employee) –  Amherst, NYNovember 6, 2017
Lord is a good place to start your career. There is opportunity for you to learn if your aggressive enough. However, there is very little advancement as in job title and compensation contributing to a high turnover rate.
Pros
End of the year bonus, company paid work shoes and glasses, most departments are non stressful.
Cons
Most office personal like to past the "buck" if you ask for help.

Aerospace Senior Manager Manufacturing Engineering (Current Employee) –  Erie, PANovember 5, 2017
Good company to work for and very highly engineered products.
I have no issues with this company. They reorganized and I got laid off. It happens. If you have an engineering background, Lord would be a good company for you.

Great place to work
Senior Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) –  Erie, PANovember 1, 2017
LORD is a great place to work. The environment is fast paced, but not stressful, employees are treated with dignity and respect, the pay and benefits are fair, and the work is challenging.

If you're not motivated for advancement, LORD is the perfect place to work. Don't expect a promotion unless you're someone's cousin and negotiate for the pay you want when you get the job, because you're not going to see a raise over 3%.

Don't hesitate to take a job in product design. You'll beat your head against a wall on the manufacturing side of the business, so frustrating.
Pros
All around great place
Cons
No advancement options

Advancement opportunities are constantly available. The company post job opportunities on their web page and in our break room. This makes it easier to move forward with the company.

SD Senior Techno-Functional Consultant (Current Employee) –  Cary, NCSeptember 5, 2017
it's a very lean, budget conscious environment. They need to rationalize and employ highly-skilled, motivated and diligent people. Too many things to do and not enough people.

Good Pay But That is Just about It
PRESS OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYAugust 22, 2017
Whenever I started, this was a great place to work, they seemed to actually care about their employees. That quickly disappeared. They expect the production workers to be machines that they can push beyond what is reasonable. The overtime is posted in advance, and you have all month to get it done. What is terrible is the management. Just for an example, it is HOT in the summer time, if the heat index is over 100, then employees are given a 5 minute break every hour. After working in this heat all day on second shift, the heat index dropped below 100 right before 10 pm, (quitting time is at 11:30pm), the second shift supervisor, refused to give the extra 5 minutes break because it was no longer over 100 degrees. Even though employees were exhausted and still hot, and needed the break from the heat all day. It just shows you that they supervisors and management do not care about employees, but numbers instead. It use to not be like that there. I can give more examples of the pettiness of the supervisors but I won't. And no, I am not a disgruntled former employee, I left on my own terms.

Mainly an Employee Russian based company caused conflict between personnel
