Busy place, very dynamic, friendly co-workers
Instrument Technician (Former Employee) –  Wickliffe, OHMarch 17, 2016
Given several job assignment at morning meeting, met with persons or groups involved,waited, discussed job requirements, more waiting,
met with more more people involved- Hey there are safety requirements- or pre-work that needed to be done prior to you hands on, so more waiting.

Get my point! Efficiency- not priority, safety is first
Some managers didn't get that!

Well...Least the place was fairly safe, despite...
Pros
Variety of assignments
Cons
Contractor-no benifits

nepotism, favoritism
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJuly 22, 2016
Most of managers are friends or related to each other. No chance for anyone else to advance. Almost all of the employees are from the same small town. The 2 operator leads are brothers, and both of the supervisors are also from that same town. Even the trainer is the brother in law of one of the supervisors.He even has another brother in law and a nephew here. The plant manager socializes with this group of people, and couldn't care less about the rest of us.I am surprised that a company as big as Lubrizol allows this.
Pros
somre great hourly employees
Cons
Again, favoritism and nepotism

Senior Research Chemist (Former Employee) –  Brecksville, OHJanuary 22, 2016
There wasn't really a "typical" day at work. My time was split as needed on polymer design, synthesis, formulating, testing, consulting, manufacturing, scale-up, HSE issues, brainstorming, patent writing/editing, and much more! The most enjoyable part of the job was being presented with many problem-solving opportunities.

Chemical Operator (Former Employee) –  Lewisville, TXJuly 22, 2015
lots of diversity and almost like a family there very tight knit. But the flip side of that is everyone is in your business and gossip spreads quite fast. Management is very approachable and always looking for growth in the company and the employees.

Chemical Operator (Former Employee) –  Painesville, OHJanuary 31, 2013
Most of the plant workforce is under the same amount of stress, without much guidance other than what is passed along verbally. Seeing a definite trend since being aquired to push seasoned employees out while trying to maintain standards which puts a tremendous amount of stress on those employees. Favoritism is rampant, and feels like a high school popularity contest
Pros
excellent pay, benefits
Cons
micro management, overbearing management

Production Engineer Intern (Former Employee) –  TXJanuary 3, 2015
I enjoyed my time at Lubrizol. It was a great place to work surrounded by great people. There is a lot to learn and a lot to keep you busy.. The pay was comparable to everyone else in industry.The only negative is the company hires very lean and there isn't the best work life balance.
Pros
great work environment, comparable pay
Cons
work-life balance can use some work

small company
Chemical Operator (Current Employee) –  TXMay 14, 2014
12 Hrs rotating shift. making round, taking samples, batch process, trouble shooting problems
*learn the batch process
*management seems to be more for the company and not the emplyoees
*I have a very diverse group of co-workers
* the hardest part of the job is working with people that have done the same thing for the past 30 years and can't change to new ideas.
*the most enjoyable part of the job is when i make good product for a customer.
Pros
company discounts
Cons
the training

Chemical Operator (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, MAFebruary 15, 2015

R&D Assistant (Former Employee) –  Brecksville, OHMarch 13, 2013
Developed patented method to produce high density (99%) titanium alloys from low cost, cold compacted, blended elemental powders. These materials exhibited near wrought properties at much lower cost than other near net shape technique. Worked on oxidation and corrosion resistant coatings for gas turbine hardware. One of these coatings became a standard treatment used on a variety of turbine blades. I was instrumental in coating engine evaluating test results, scaling up the process, and training vendors
Pros
free lunches

Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Painesville, OHApril 27, 2014
Came in as a contractor. Was told I would never look for another job in my life. When it comes down to it, I think that there was just too much bureaucracy. Its a shame really. Also, the plant runs 24/7/356 which led to issues with being home for the family.
Pros
lots of work
Cons
bureaucracy
