    I worked at Sauer-Danfoss full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, challenging work, and opportunities for advancement. Salary was fair for Ames,Ia. Technology systems were current. Good work/life balance with the company - long days were the outliers.

    Cons

    Politics were obvious in some areas. Poor middle management for reviews, performance feedback. Some areas did not pull their weight with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Erase middle management politics.

    Former Employee - Production Operation Technician (Assembler) in Ames, IA

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

    Pros

    -High value on personnel safety
    -Lots of great, quality workers
    -Can be a fun work environment if you like manufacturing

    Cons

    -Some lower level management isn't the greatest
    -Some Engineers think they're better than the assembly workers who work on the product for 10 hours a day and won't bother to hear good feedback

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your lower level management once in awhile. Some of the Facilitators care more about boating and golf than their employees.

    Former Employee - Applications Engineer in Ames, IA
    Former Employee - Applications Engineer in Ames, IA

    I worked at Sauer-Danfoss

    Pros

    Generally very supportive of employees and dedicated to professional and first class performance. Employees are empowered and extensive hard and soft skills training are provided and encouraged. Many opportunities to work with team members globally.

    Cons

    There have been many changes in the company during the past few years, and it is unclear if the work culture is changing. The extensive head count reduction is putting a heavy work load on the remaining employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management must provide a clear vision of how Sauer-Danfoss can maintain its product leadership with the severe reduction in engineering and capital resources.
