    Typical disfunctional company, some areas better than others, blindly driven by engineer types not good business people.

    Pros

    Good money, good products, potential to carve out your own professional island in a sea of disorganization

    Cons

    Management run on emotion, not facts. Lots of cronyism. Some people should have been gone long ago. People at the top only know they should push the latest trends and buzzwords. They have no real vision.

    Advice to Management

    Could be an incredible company but there is no real plan from the top down. If you don't figure out how to schedule soon the competition is going to finish eating your lunch! 40 weeks to make a pump and you can't schedule the parts on time? Parts for jobs continue to be lost because you have a lousy process for tracking from dock to stock to job. Can't justify hiring real professionals in this area? Jeeez. The culture is to blame, curse and yell. That is just lame in 2014. Wake up! Take that top level bonus money and spend it on the employees. How about an on site cafeteria? How about getting rid of the 1950's desks? How about giving employees the privacy professionals deserve? Who wants to sit with their back exposed so management can see what they are doing? Is it a place people want to work? Better take a look around at successfull companies, do they have any of the above? If you think I'm describing a country club work environment, then YOU are a dinosaur from the 1940s. You have all the metrics in the world but you are still failing miserably, why? Could it be that you think that guys like the one you brought over from Neuclear to be in charge are the right type? You know who I mean; the one who gleefully, in large training sessions, told how he would fire people and then go back to his hotel and order a nice steak dinner and sleep like a baby because those people were slackers. Yea, that's right, those are not people you want running your company. Glad he is gone, hope you learned something from that one.

    Disappointed

    I worked at Flowserve full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits, great colleagues, but that is really all I can say because the reason I left was because I was dissatisfied.

    Cons

    Highly stressful and laborious performance management program. Too many changes, too fast and at once, and too much of "ruling" attitude from the "many" managers. Far too many meetings about things that could be sent quickly in a note. A lot of extra projects, training, plans for each group to help them each meet their targets removing you from your daily tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees. Stop treating them like they are simple and irrelevant. Add more laborers and less management, so things can get done. Understand that not everyone needs or wants to be a manager and those people necessary also.

    Pros

    Good pay to start. Company strives to be ethical and safe. Profit sharing and 401k are good. Values, employee appreciation preached at corporate level. Need more of that at local levels.

    Cons

    Management is uncaring. No regard for employees personal lives. Benefits should be better for such a large company. Not enough good people to get assigned work done. Stressful environment.

    Advice to Management

    The only reason good employees stay is the economy is so bad and choices are limited. Get rid of the dead weight and treat good employees better. Take more employee surveys and act on results.

    Pros

    Good bonus structure and decent base pay, great people to work with at individual contributor level. Some managers were great.

    Cons

    Bad senior management, too much focus on share price, too many hours and phone calls at home. I have no problem taking a call after hours, but three times on a Sunday for something that is not due until the following Friday is ridiculous. Having to call security to turn the lights back on because you are in the office past 11:00 p.m. is ridiculous. Working until 4:00 a.m. then coming back at 7:00 a.m. three days in a row is ridiculous. I say "ridiculous" because all projects could have been accomplished in a 9-5 work day.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more interaction between individual contributors and VPs. The middle man only makes the process worse and reduces trust between management and employees.

    Pros

    The corporation has good policies. There are a lot of good people at the Lynchburg site.

    Cons

    Corporate policies are not practiced at the plant level. The work environmenta is very negative. Intimidation and retaliation are used as management tools.

    Advice to Management

    The management team at Lynchburg needs to be investigated for retaliation and threats to employees.
