    Current Employee - Senior Project Engineer in Baton Rouge, LA (US)

    I have been working at Albemarle full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A great place to work. Benefits are above average. Off work every other Friday.

    Cons

    Management doesn't support training unless it is a company sponsored training. They don't want to spend the money to further train their senior employes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more supportive of the senior employees and quit paying so much attention to the new hires and young employes. Realize that your senior employees are the backbone of the company and treat them as such.

    Interview Details

    Had a good talk with the HR and engineer.Good to have this first interview ever. Basically just behavior questions, few technical questions. Mainly focused on previous experiences. Requires thermal and fluid dynamics background. Previous chemical related background would be a plus.
