    I have been working at CIRCOR International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people on site. Good benefits. Good environment.

    Cons

    No career path unless you are in operations. A time of flux to conquer challenges and set the course over the next few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example by getting down in the trenches. Be accountable and guide changes.

    I have been working at CIRCOR International

    Pros

    The local employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    Micromanagement from the CEO (Scott Buckholt) on down. Local business units unable to make basic decisions without corporate approval. This approach dramatically slowed down process improvements, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up and trust your business unit leaders.

    Pros

    Opportunity to be positive change agent

    Cons

    Positives gained as a change agent we're ignored by leadership because I Was not a member of the "club". By the way, stay away from the "club". There is no leadership centered around team building, positive, merit based , reinforcement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace management.

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Burlington, MA

    I worked at CIRCOR International

    Pros

    Free Coffee
    Good Commute
    Some of the employees are very nice and great to work with
    Lots of parking
    Property Management takes good care of the building

    Cons

    - Senior management is unaware of how HR treats employees
    - New hires are considered on basis of age and quality of wardrobe - not on skills and experience
    - If you shop at Ann Taylor, by all means apply at Circor!!
    - Huge gap between senior management and the individuals that report to them
    - Calculated lack of communication and no encouragement of teamwork, no recognition for good work and no room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with ALL of your employees in the executive office - not just the Senior VP of HR and Legal Counsel. You'd be surprised at what people have to say if you would make yourself available and really listen.
