    Pros

    Good working environment, Good benefits, Not much work or work pressure in IT.
     Management is okay. Good team members. Flexible timings. Good bonus, pension plan, Health Insurance, excellent 401k match. I enjoyed working here.

    Cons

    No proper Processes or Direction in IT. Mostly legacy code and legacy systems and more of maintenance work. If your are technically inclined, this may not be the company for you. Not much scope for career growth in IT.
    appraisals are like peanuts.

    Pros

    Very good benefits which includes up to 5 weeks vacation per year, very traditional and strong products in strong markets.

    Cons

    The company has limited strategic planning, a very high overhead structure that limits growth at the plant level. Many cases of limited understanding of markets and growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the good people at the plant make the day to day decisions to met or exceed market expections.

    Not your typical corporate setting. People are laid back but here to provide results for our customers.

    Current Employee - Applications Engineer
    Current Employee - Applications Engineer

    I have been working at Flowserve full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits include full health coverage, healthy and safe work environment, and very manageable working hours (7:30-4:00 most days).

    Cons

    The position I'm currently in has a high turnover rate. Either you are promoted with 2-3 years or you move on to another company. Often times, our customers will hire engineers and pay higher salaries, Flowserve will not match. It seems as if the position is replaceable, which is understandable from a business stand point, but doesn't sit well with employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always keep the bigger picture in perspective. 99% of Application Engineers DO NOT see themselves in this position more than 2-3 years down the road. Work with engineers to understand how they want to grow and where they can move up in the company.

    Pros

    Benefits are average for comparable firms.
    Typical co-workers good to work with, strive for performance and pride in work.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity based only on politics and not performance.
    Poor support from management, poor tools to perfrom job function.
    Management disconnected. No planning only reactive. No communication.
    Management not trustworthy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to review integrity of management.
    Need to actually commit to emphasized "ethics", "diversity" and "customer service", not merely recite rhetoric.
