    Could have been better.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA good training ground to put to use in a future job with their competitors.

    ConsLack of progressive career opportunities available for most. If you are favored, then the sky is the limit. Seem to take it personally when someone leaves - especially senior management. Lack support of the average worker to grow them to be better employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFront line workers are your bread and butter. Treat them better. Don't continue to treat people as if they don't matter.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    My experience has been good, Gained a lot of experience that can be used in my career.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Sheboygan, WI

    Pros- Work is always fast paced and different every day
    - The managers are not over bearing on their employees
    - Good Industry to work in

    Cons- A lot of emails sent out randomly with no regard to the correct person who should be answering them
    - Management only communicates with employees when there is problems

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease keep and a short and long term vision of the company. Also, please know what is going on your facilities that are far away. I am not convinced mgt has a clue

    Gardner Denver Thomas historically has been a pretty good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Sheboygan, WI

    ProsIt was well known that GDT was a leader in its field and has been a nice place to work over the years. The workforce has historically been very, very stable. That showed that GDT was indeed a good place to work. Management gave employees support in medical emergencies.

    ConsNo employee wellness program to speak of. Also, there was no formal training programs until recently.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTraining programs for sales personnel and for mid-level and upper management would benefit the company.I would also establish an employee wellness program.
