Toxic Environment
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Redcar and Cleveland, North Yorkshire6 September 2018
The initial pull of a good starting salary for most technicians, once you are in the job it becomes very apparent that the only good thing about the role is the money, which can result in alot of staff members feeling stuck in their current positions and unable to leave due to the security it can offer.

Its a fast paced environment so it can be very challenging at times, but the biggest challange is the toxic nature of the staff you work with and the management themselves who care very little about you as an employee and are more so focused on that the ever increasing work load is completed.

During your interview you will be promised opportunities to expand your skills, grow within the company with regards to promotions etc but this is quickly forgotten about the second you sign your contract.

Despite meeting some nice people during my time working here, the vast majority are clearly deeply unhappy in their jobs and this in turn impacts on the social morale within the company. As prior reviews have mentioned, it can feel like youre back in school with inccessant name calling being an every day occurrance. The wage gap between the technicians can be with in excess of 8 grand, for doing the exact same role, which can and has evidently caused alot of friction.

If youre looking to build up your CV and gain some experience I would say its a good place to do so due to the nature of the work and the equiptment they use. Other than that, I wouldnt recommend working in this company long term.

OK place but too many layers of management
Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX19 June 2018
The executive management thinks they are a fortune 100 company but reality is they are a smaller to mid-sized company this shows up with the daunting rules and policies they come up with but are not able to execute due to being smaller than they think.

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

Ispettore Industria (Former Employee) –  EMEA Energy2 October 2017
Eccellente metodologia e procedure aziendali anche se con tempistiche implementazione fuori mercato.
Colleghi disponibili e preparati, di livello internazionale.
L'introduzione di nuovi Responsabili Italia - settore Industria e successivo cambio di passo mirato verso il raggiungimento obiettivi dei concorrenti principali, ha portato all'allontanamento di diverse figure professionali.
Pros
Lavoro in team sempre sostenuto e ben accetto.
Cons
Azioni Mngr Risorse umane spesso non in linea con i principi del gruppo.

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
