    Pros

    Global reach, industry leader, great mission statement

    Cons

    Corporate culture is a "good old boy" network. Extremely top-down flow of information. Disregard for the needs of workers is endemic to the corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Allow information to flow freely in all directions - up, down, and laterally. This will spark innovation and reduce talent loss.

    Pros

    -- The international nature of the businesses makes it complex, but also interesting.
    -- The diversity of products and customers served provides employees a wide variety of areas in which they can excel.

    Cons

    -- The focus on reducing compensation and benefits in all areas outside the executive suite can make for a tough environment in which to work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to use the really great Gardner Denver Way internal business system to leverage the company's synergies proactively with organic growth through customer-driven innovation excellence.

    Pros

    Company has a broad range of products and locations to work.

    Cons

    Company is being managed for short term results vs longer term competitive position. Layoffs and downsizing is causing a loss over talented people needed to sustain this company.
