    I have been working at Dresser-Rand full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Dresser-Rand is a $5+ billion, heavy hitter in the petroleum production market. The company, through acquisitions and mergers, has existed for some 150 years. They offer a competitive salary, with quality benefits. There is room for growth, for those willing to put in the work.

    Cons

    Dresser-Rand is expanding rapidly, and such leads to common growing pains for any company. The raises do leave much to be desired. This is a unique service industry, so working late nights and weekends are a way of life

    I worked at Dresser-Rand full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay scale was great and one of the best in the area.

    Cons

    Fellow older Union employees as well as supervisors and managers are out to protect their cliqs. In my situation and employee flat out lied to get me suspended and the manager of the department flat out agreed with the employee without even hearing my side. It took months of fighting to try to get my job back and ended with a settlement. This company has created a work environment where if you aren't accepted into a circle then you'll be fired/suspended once they cook up a good lie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat each employee with respect. Don't assume that what one employee tells you is the honest truth. You have employees livelihoods in your hands and can tear families apart with poor, rash decisions. Learn to actually review both sides of a story and stop believing that employees with more time under their belts are honest. I had seen in my years with your company that the "old dogs" were the manipulators. Yet your managers and supervision teams ate it up and actually took orders from hourly employees on a regular basis.

    Pros

    Some good people who want to perform at their job

    Cons

    Upper management misrepresent their qualifications and take credit for those who really deserve it. Accounting procedures are not followed. Too many peacocks running the show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
