    Pros

    None that I hve seen.

    Cons

    Be very careful of BioMedical Division under Steve Shaw. This guy is a first class slimeball. He is a bully and discriminates openly. Literally drove the Companies most recent BioMedical acquisition into the ground (sales down 75%-80% under his watch). They alter sales data and steal commissions.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Steve Shaw before his mouth does something to cost the Company big money in a lawsuit. Slimeballs hire slimeballs.

    Pros

    Most of the people are great, they want to contribute and see the company grow. Benefits are really good and 11 paid holidays.

    Cons

    Management can't see the forest for the trees. There is no innovation at all, quick to shut down any ideas that are outside the box and really have no desire to improve. If you can get the local management past their egos to listen to you, major accomplishment.

    Advice to Management

    Out with the old - in with the new... You aren't going to get anywhere with the local management teams in place now.

    Pros

    Company has good equipment and talented, experienced engineers. The work is steady and in a growing field. Quality System is excellent. Good integration with local college to bring in welders.

    Cons

    In some areas, the union presence drags down the company's potential. Management does not understand how to deal with these people so those who care eventally ask, "why bother"?

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent in your approach with methods of change and hold supervisors accountable.

    Pros

    The people are very nice. It is a blue collar work environment where the employees are accepting people.

    Cons

    Lack of vision or clear leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to get to know your team.

    Congrats on joining Chart; since we are comprised of many different divisions and products, it can sometimes seem like there is a lack of clear vision; I would encourage you to continue to ask ... More

    Pros

    Health and financial (retirement savings) benefits are very good. Many of the employees are very friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    You really never know when the next large layoff will occur. At least some of the management is inexperienced. They and and many of their employees are severely over-burdened and underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy your abuse of power, for when the economy improves, many of your employees will inevitably leave.

    Pros

    Stable company for growth in most of the business units. Global manufacturing presence to help expand products and stability in most markets. Buys up the competition, good technology and quality of product, dedicated and satisfied customers.

    Cons

    Runs with big internal systems but too many non value added processes and people bring it down. Lacking cohesive effort between departments. Under compensated and under valued for all the hours that are required to be worked for most dedicated salary people. Long term vision in some areas is poor, bad business decisions are paid for by lay-offs and closings.

    Pros

    Chart has been on an expansion track for year and seems well positioned for the future.

    Cons

    Manufacturing managers tend to micro manage instead of letting their qualified people do what they are best at. Get in the "Good Old Boys Club" you could have a job for life. If you don't like playing politics you may not like it.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the favoritism by management. Keep the best qualified.
