    Pros

    Interesting work and great attitude by direct labor

    Cons

    Non-Danish employees are 2nd class citizens. No holidays or benefits away from US. Often expected to work 10 or more weeks at a time off site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cultivate some integrity.

    Good advancement opportunities, frequent reorganizations

    Pros

    For high performers, there are and will be good opportunities for advancement and development. It seems that reorganizations both present opportunities for the high performers and risk for under-performers. Overall the company keeps moving forward with innovative business practices, a forward-looking and sustainable vision, and a focus on results.

    Cons

    A complex matrix environment is tough to navigate for newcomers, but this is par for the course for multinationals. The top-down decisions about reorganization can seem concerning, but also create opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important to communicate frequently to employees of all levels to ensure continued motivation in times of economic uncertainty.

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

    Pros

    Initially, the company held promise, lots of good promises, lots of training.

    Cons

    No plan, slow response to - everything. Nobody seems to care about quality, the customer is always wrong, no sense of urgency at all to accomplish any project. And- if a project becomes delinquent- the management in Denmark sweeps out the US managers and hires more almost immediately. This has been an often repeated process. Hire-fire-hire-fire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a business class at the local community college.

    Pros

    As with most companies, there are always some good co-workers. Work balance not too bad, pay ok,

    Cons

    Number one problem: hire and fire, hire and fire, repeat. I have seen more than a dozen engineers, sales people, product support, HR people hired and fired over a two to three year period. And, almost immediately, new people are hired with a slightly different job title to do the same work as the person fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop an ethic of commitment to employees. People are not cattle and shouldn't be hired and fired at will. Overall, the ethics and business practices of Danfoss are lackluster.

    I have been working at Danfoss International part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good support, takes care of its employees, well structured. Will help its employees in times of need or disaster, i.e. shutdown due to natural disaster. Keeps employees well informed about international company news.

    Cons

    Working in north america can sometimes seem detached from the international group in terms of support or communication, though this is to be expected somewhat
