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

    Pros

    Stable company for growth in most of the business units. Global manufacturing presence to help expand products and stability in most markets. Buys up the competition, good technology and quality of product, dedicated and satisfied customers.

    Cons

    Runs with big internal systems but too many non value added processes and people bring it down. Lacking cohesive effort between departments. Under compensated and under valued for all the hours that are required to be worked for most dedicated salary people. Long term vision in some areas is poor, bad business decisions are paid for by lay-offs and closings.

    Pros

    Chart has been on an expansion track for year and seems well positioned for the future.

    Cons

    Manufacturing managers tend to micro manage instead of letting their qualified people do what they are best at. Get in the "Good Old Boys Club" you could have a job for life. If you don't like playing politics you may not like it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the favoritism by management. Keep the best qualified.

    I have been working at Chart Industries full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Constantly changing to make it a great place to work. Very employee oriented. Really care about their employees and their safety. Trying to be socially responsible and eliminate waste and hazards. Likes to have fun give back to the community and give employees a balanced life. They really listen. I work in Tulsa but have met lots of employees in Chart and they are so nice.

    Cons

    We work in a plant environment that is open to the weather elements and dust but in the last two years it has greatly improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your employees and engaging them in decisions

    Pros

    You are challenged in your position. The company has a solid strategic direction. Pay is market for the region/location. Great people. Strong leadership.

    Cons

    The company is broken out into three divisions and often times each business will act as a silo versus reaching out to understand how things are done across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key to aligning employees and more communication is necessary.

    Industry leader and very profitable business practices. Very good pay. Rapidly growing with a lot of advancement opportunities. Really cares about its people and offers great benefits.

    Some challenges in dealing with the rapid growth. Need more good people to help with the expansion in LNG.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication on incentive plan status.

    Thanks for the review; your analysis is an accurate one; Chart combines mature markets such as bulk gas and new, emerging markets such as LNG.

    Pros

    Competitive...not great pay. Good benefits. Management is so-so. They really don't have much control over how much work someone does.

    Cons

    Pay is a little low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If someone busts his tail all night don't be on him about cleaning up 5 minutes early when "senior" co -workers don't do anything all night but make sure they "clean" up within 15 minutes of a shift change. Pretty Sad.

    Congrats on joining Chart; since we are comprised of many different divisions and products, it can sometimes seem like there is a lack of clear vision; I would encourage you to continue to ask ... More
