A wealth of knowledge and experience, but there is a lack of communication

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Rohnert Park, CA

I have been working at IDEX

ProsWorking at IDEX Health & Science has been a great experience. The people, the knowledge, and the technology has been very good, and the spirit and attitude that most of employees have is great. Most everyone's attitude is great.

ConsThe communication breakdown is difficult to deal with both between departments and management. The tribal knowledge is a bit strenuous but it is getting better. Dealing with management as far as bettering one's self, is tough!

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication for employees in regards to planning of yearly goals. Improve incentive/rewards for employees. Improve communication and duties between departments, to give a better understanding of how departments work together and what the end results should or could be.

IDEX Corporation

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at IDEX

Pros- Embrace six sigma and best of practice methodology in manufacturing
 - Realize and reinforce value of marketing in gaining marketplace marketshare

Cons- Difficulty in solidifying engineering knowledge base and properly completing the product development lifeline
 - Recent rapid turnover of senior management leaves company in transition
 - Taking away tuition reimbursement program leaves question as to how they will continue to support their young, motivated employees

Advice to Senior ManagementIDEX has certainly taken a hit in the latest financial fallout, but its built on a solid foundation and I believe in the direction and decisions Larry Kingsley has been able to support and lead. As a manufacturer, IDEX is an above average place to work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
