Lab Supervisor in La Porte, TX
on September 9, 2021
From the perspective of a lab rather than the plant:Overall, Albemarle is a great company to work for. Pay can probably be adjusted up, but is fair. Benefits are pretty good, and flexibility is great. They put a lot of focus on personal well being, development, diversity, and inclusion. They tend to overload their middle management with projects that probably don't need to be done. Due to their focus on personal advancement, turnover in labs to other positions within the company are common, leading to a process of continual training.

First of all, Albemarle is a fine chemical company (not oil). The pay is amazing. In 3 years time I went from seventeen to thirty two dollars an hour. The benefits are great as well. But for every great thing there is a price. The work is tough and stressful. Its basically chemistry on a 4000 gallon scale. You are in charge of using chemistry to create a pharmaceutical intermediate and if you "overcook" a batch... well thats time and money wasted. The shifts are 12 hours long so you either love it or you hate it. Sometimes there is a sense of brotherhood between operators and other times its incredibly back stabby. The supervisors (not all of them) can be your worst nightmare. They are either completely absent when you need help or direction or they treat you like you are stupid when you ask for it. It was always short staffed and so much was expected from you while you were there.

Poorly managed but pays good and not very stressful. You will be on your own mostly to learn. Management is not bad just don't know how to effectively manage maintenance.
