Senior Research Chemist (Former Employee) – Brecksville, OH – January 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.

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.

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.
Chemical Operator (Current Employee) – TX – May 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.
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.
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

Safety is a joke , you can not trust anyone in management .If you want something done you have to do it yourself. Lubrizol has been going down hill and is not what they claim to be. STRESS STRESS STRESS!!!
Chemical Operator (Former Employee) – Painesville, OH – January 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
I worked there for 5 years and you can not trust anyone in management or human resources.I had a lot more bad days because my foreman was a liar and a piece of mess ..And when they decide to terminate you,they call you on the phone,and you never get a chance to get your things out of your locker..they throw your personal items in the trash..and treat you like trash..no ethics at all, no morals..
