    I have been working at Dresser-Rand

    Pros

    At Dresser rand, I am surrounded by incredibly passionate, talented, experienced, smart, and friendly people from a myriad of backgrounds.All joking aside, the incredible people I work with (and interface with on many different teams within Dresser-rand) are a major reason that I am excited to get up in the morning, and reluctant to leave here at night. The background of everyone on the team is very diverse, and the aggregate level of expertise is amazing. Everyone has a specialty (be it Project Management, techincal), and everyone is very willing to share their knowledge and experience. I have yet to run into someone on any team internally that was not willing to take time out of their day to share documents, best practices, or information that was requested. We have a large number of very active internal discussion lists, and it is incredible to be able to tap into the knowledge of Senior Consultants that are implementing Solutions in the field, as well as Program Managers and Designers that can explain not only how something works, but why the product was architected in that manner.

    Cons

    I worked at Dresser-Rand full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Interesting equipment business serving the attractive oil and gas industry

    Cons

    If you are good and competent at what you do, you will be viewed as a threat by leadership which will result in lowering your self esteem and personal self worth. Working for this company could negatively impact your goals unless you just want a paycheck and punch the clock. Flavor the moment approach to problem solving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come to terms with your personal limitations and support and grow the good employees. There are a lot of good people at this company that need nurturing to make it more successful. It is time for Dresser-Rand to modernize its management style and culture. If it acted like major multi-national corporation, it could grow up to be as large as Dollar General.

    It has been a great opportunity to get paid to learn despite the stifling bureaucracy.

    I have been working at Dresser-Rand

    Pros

    A good place to work if you like mechanical engineering. Good opportunity for learning about the gas compression industry. Opportunities for both domestic and foreign travel. Opportunities for changing jobs within the company including acquisitions.

    Cons

    Poor employer support in balancing between work life and personal life. Compensation levels might not be competitive. Stifling, wasteful bureaucracy.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
