    Pros

    Friendly people who are very smart and intelligent. Benefit package is very good. Company execs have sent stock price through the roof. Huge emphasis on quality and creating new products. Workplace is very clean.

    Cons

    Local leadership is lacking. They are not on the same page and make decisions that don't make sense. Later on the workers have to work overtime to clean up the mess. Management believes in working short handed and don't schedule properly. Management doesn't care much about the workers.

    Pros

    Good company benefits along with competitive compensation

    Cons

    There was a disconnect with executive management and middle management and projects were often micro-managed. Went all in with the Six-Sigma paradigm to much dismay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to those on the front lines and realize Six Sigma is not an excuse for lack of mentoring

    Former Employee - Account Manager  in  San Diego, CA
    Former Employee - Account Manager in San Diego, CA

    Pros

    This is a good company for self-driven individuals. If you have no issue going after the knowledge you want to succeed at your job and are a people person by nature, you will succeed. There is a good amount of autonomy to make your own schedule and meetings.

    Cons

    The lack of innovation with respect to marketing strategies/product launch campaigns, internal communication, and customer service often consumed a lot of time that should have been devoted to selling and building relationships. There was a disjointed feeling among the groups about the company's mission. An attitude and cohesive message should come from the top. Unfortunately the bulk of your communications from upper management would be about quarterly sales numbers, setting up meetings for them because they wanted to travel in your territory (for no apparent reason) and what were your greatest 'fires' that required their attention. The potential is there. Only time will tell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Putting out fires is not an effective way to do business. Preventing the start of the fires in the first place is.

    Poor Management. People are poorly managed. miscommunications between managers and working teams. Some mavericks do not follow the rules and policies and still lives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need close watch each person's efficiency and improve individual's expertise. Prevent unreasonable requirements from other dept's managers.

    Pros

    With the wide scope of their business, they are positioned to succeed when some industries have downturns. There are good future opportunities for the corporation to grow as the world is more focused on being "green", and higher levels of fluid cleanliness are required in some industries.

    Cons

    The corporation is so focused on the immediate financial targets, that the value of knowledgable employees is overlooked. This will affect the ability of the corporation to retain people going forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees are as important as the technology.

    Solid History, Uncertain Future ... focus on employees is lost

    Former Employee - Senior Market Manager
    Former Employee - Senior Market Manager

    Pros

    solid product offering ... high level of filtration knowledge ... great colleagues on the horizontal level ... exposure to some high tech problem solving

    Cons

    overwhelming focus is on shareholders, not on employees, products or VoC ... lack of vertical integration from the "bottom" to the top, always from the top to the bottom approach ... lack of clear leadership and direction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incorporate the wisdom, insight and knowledge of your reports ... place more focus on the employees as the valuable resource, and less on solely the revenue generation, because that will come as a result of the workforce being properly trained, empowered and encouraged.

    Former Employee - Senior Research Scientist  in  Port Washington, NY
    Former Employee - Senior Research Scientist in Port Washington, NY

    Pros

    Lots of good people working there. Some very good resources available. Some of the technology is very good with good management running it. A good place for many people to start

    Cons

    Communication between upper management and the workforce could be much better. All too often unclear goals were set and then middle managers would unjustly lash out at subordinates. At times things were chaotic. One single Documentation system was being phased in, which is a critical thing, however it could be very frustrating to get even simple things done. Many workers had problems with the general disorganization of the place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give middle management more latitude in executing goals. Hold them accountable, but don't make them so afraid to fail that they never really accomplish much.
