    I have been working at Dresser-Rand full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Dresser-Rand is a $5+ billion, heavy hitter in the petroleum production market. The company, through acquisitions and mergers, has existed for some 150 years. They offer a competitive salary, with quality benefits. There is room for growth, for those willing to put in the work.

    Cons

    Dresser-Rand is expanding rapidly, and such leads to common growing pains for any company. The raises do leave much to be desired. This is a unique service industry, so working late nights and weekends are a way of life

    Pros

    Since they are so lean you have opportunity to learn and be proactive

    Cons

    Very often over worked and overwhelmed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees have to work with an entrepreneurial attitude since there is not much guidance or motivation. Would be nice if management walked their talk.

    Summer Engineering Internship

    Former Employee - Summer Engineering Intern in Olean, NY

    I worked at Dresser-Rand as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I was given a lot of responsibility and received very encouraging feed back. Everyone was willing to help and answer questions. Rather substantial hourly rate compared to many other internships.

    Cons

    I would have appreciated the opportunity to meet successful women in the company to hear their challenges in such a male dominated industry. Other than that I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

    I have been working at Dresser-Rand full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good Pay, better people. Money is good depending on the hours you work. The people that work here are second to none. Most are always willing to show you how to do a specific task properly.

    Cons

    Extended periods of time away from home. Weeks, months and sometimes several months away can give the family left at home a sense of detachment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On jobs that will be 30 days or longer, offer to fly a spouse or loved one out to the location. This would boost moral on extended stays away from them and may even save a marriage or two.
