    Pros

    Flexibility, work life balance and organizational culture are the best. In the last few years my career has really benefitted from increased responsibilities. My efforts being rewarded by promotions.

    Cons

    the negatives of being at HQ are lack of clarity in career path. The centralized management structure is in its initial phases and the lack of HR clarity is sometimes evident in confusing career growth policies.

    Advice to Management

    The organizational culture is one of the best I have ever seen with respect for personal space and time. The only advice to management would be to clearly think of team positions, hierarchy, growth plans and roles before hiring people.

    Pros

    Global locations and served many markets. Work commute was short

    Cons

    Keep buying and selling companies but no efforts to integrate; old ideas with little room for new energy.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on product and customer service innovation and invest for top line growth; remove "dead" wood and replace with fresh out of the box thinking from leading edge companies

    Pros

    Above average compensation structure. Businesses are growing and Dover is investing in its businesses.

    Cons

    If you are making numbers, you are allowed to do whatever you want and treat people poorly. People are not respected here. There is no job security and no work life balance. The organization is dysfunctional and disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better. Take a hard close look at your senior executive leadership team.

    Management out of touch with and undervalued its human assets. Typical of a corporate juggernaut wannabe.

    Remember what and who makes the company succeed every day.
