Very poor company culture based on fear and degradation
Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX5 October 2017
LR is a dinosaur that just cannot get with modern times even when they profess to try. They give lip service to where they wish to go then fire the people they hire to get there because the core culture is so entrenched and will not change.
Pros
Good 401k
Cons
Horrible management on most levels

Good flexible company for families, but difficult managers to work with
Billing Analyst (Current Employee) –  Bracknell, Berkshire4 May 2017
Very flexible and understanding company for working hours with some paterns, but no flexible for most people (ie working from home). Requesting "volunteers" to cover bank holidays, so sooner or later will be expecting to work at least two or three bank holidays and few weekends. Most of people are very nice, but sometimes it feels like going back to school. Unfair treat from management and providing no consistance rules (ie Christmas holidays are just been taking by TL or new people that are playing the game). Same rules appliyng to holidays, and almost need to fight in order to book holidays with "few months in advance" as management cannot be organize or plan ahead. Not much career opportunities and a lot of people find it frustrating to find salaries of "new people" as they are higher and inconsistence. No bonus and very little pay rise.
Pros
Pension scheme.
Cons
Management and payrise or / and bonus.

Friendly workplace with good facilities. However, systems and Management lacking.
Senior Logistics Analyst (Current Employee) –  Houston, TX16 April 2017
Friendly workplace with a work hard, play hard culture.
Strong benefits although pay could be higher for the amount of work involved.
Recent IT and system changes within the company have not had the impact that was hoped for. Slow,complex and non user-friendly. These changes have affected employees globally along with clients.
Pros
Good benefits and flexible hours
Cons
Horrible systems in place, base salary could be higher and Management seems to work on a buddy system

Large, conservative company trying to find its way in the US Energy market.
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Texas City, TX31 January 2017
Lloyd's Register is historically an old British company that began by inspecting and certifying ocean vessels. It has expanded into inspecting and certifying both offshore and onshore oil and gas facilites as well as refineries and chemical plants. With the acquisition of Celerity3 around 2009 the company added an engineering group that specialized in pressure relief system revalidation. They went through some growing pains where design work was banned for liability concerns until a corporate restructuring was completed. During that hiatus from design, many if not most of C3's clients moved their relief system accounts to competitors that would do design work. To their credit Lloyd's did much to limit the number of layoffs that took place but to this day they are still unsure what to do with these engineers who have been trained in the specialized field of relief system design but are being used for corrosion mapping and other miscellaneous jobs assisting other departments. There is some job security and the benefits are good but the work is not terribly challenging for most engineers.
Pros
Stable, friendly work environment
Cons
Work is not very challenging, Many engineers feel trapped because they are not getting the kind of experience they want

Company in disarray...sadly..
Technical Manager (Former Employee) –  Asia4 January 2017
LR drilling like academic certificates and not experience and sadly this will see the demise of them in the drilling industry as they are top heavy with academics and have very little experienced personnel left as they have all left and work for competitors.

The leadership, Senior Managers and Managers in drilling from top to bottom are full of inexperience and rely on even less experienced staff to make them look good by trying to fudge the numbers....and for a long time the lack of revenue is being hidden behind one excuses after another. Lots of corporate jargon will get you places and protecting your job hiding behind some false title will also assist your chances of remaining.

LR have acquired many companies and have a reputation of damaging all of them and this will only stop when they get some focus of where they want to be and then employ a strong unbiased leadership and do not get the trash who bluff and who hang on in there from the acquired companies.

I am certain that less than 10% of the staff from the acquired companies are still in place and there within lies the answer.
Pros
You can leave
Cons
You might need to stay if you cannot get a job in a good company

Senior Lifting Engineer (Current Employee) –  Aberdeen City6 March 2016
Typical day at work is dealing with customers, advising them and helping to make sure that their design is safe. I have learned a lot about the design rules and regulations. Management in Lloyds is one of the worst I have ever seen. Nobody is making real plan and execute this. Most of the engineers are working on its own without any control. In this kind of environment has happen in few cases that the budget was blown. The co-workers are average some of them are good, some of them are not good. The hardest part of the job is to obtain engineering programs licenses. In many cases the job couldn't be done in particular time because lack of software. The client opinion and information that my commitment is exceptional.

A place with many opportunities to generalise or specialise.
Engineer Surveyor (Former Employee) –  Lowestoft, ENG12 January 2016
During a working year the workload varies greatly as client requirements and workloads changed, sometimes seasonal and other times due to the state of the economy.
By far the most enjoyable part of the work was the range of work type: It was vast, qualifying welders one day and offshore undertaking verification work the next, sometimes on your doorstep other times many hours drive away. Whilst this kept the job fresh it was mentally exhausting at times.
Working for the society was sometimes frustrating with many systems slow or unhelpful. As most parts of the industry the experienced people are retiring with no formal method of mentoring or knowledge retention.
Most co-workers were great to work with, always willing to support or offer assistance and usually with a sense of humor.
Pros
Working in a small outpost office with a high degree of autonomy, A great deal of industrial experience throughout the company to draw upon, Good benefits and remuneration.
Cons
Increasingly restricting authorisations and typically under resourced.

LLoyd's Register was very demanding, and employees were given little respect
Surveyor (Former Employee) –  Chicago, IL9 December 2015
A typical day very challenging because it required many long hours and travel 6 days a week. Employees were overworked and under respected. I did not see my co-workers except at meetings, etc.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with Indian managers that did not care if you understood them when they were speaking and always thought they were better than you and their condescending attitude.
Pros

poor management
