I have been working at Donaldson Company full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

There is a relaxed atmosphere with an underlying sense of urgency and the people are great to work with. Management seems to know what they are doing.

Cons

I don't feel like my work is appreciated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reinstate Casual Friday. Randomly assigned jeans days are disheartening.

    Pros

    Historically great financial performance with consistent earnings and carefully defined global strategies. Named within the top 100 Minnesota employers. Diversified with excellent promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    Can be overly conservative at times missing potential business opportunities and growth objectives. Relatively unknown company making it difficult to attract employment talent.

    I have been working at Donaldson Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stable, strong balance sheet and financials

    Cons

    Not very entrepreneurial; extremely risk averse

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's good to have healthy financials, but my experience with the company was one of limited willingness to take measured risks outside the company's core market segments (industrial air filtration and engine air and liquid filtration). It would be good to grow more appreciative (and tolerant) of those with a more entrepreneurial bent, and to pepper an executive management team laden with very skilled cost accounting and manufacturing efficiency left brain experts with some very skilled and creative right brain experts.
