I worked at Dresser-Rand

Pros

Decent Benefits and Vacation
Centralized location in Houston; Office bldg at Katy Frwy is old and badly in need of renovation.

Cons

Inability of company to meet announced deadline/changes within corporation
No accountability for Project Management when not complying with company policies/procedures.
No communication between management level and non-management employees; rumors rule.
Poor training program and unnecessary repetitive non job-related computerized training.
Employment/advancement/salary increases based on nepotism/politics especially at non-management levels, instead of employee contributions/accomplishments.
Too many "chiefs" (or employees who think they are); management top-heavy, especially at mid-management level.
Badly needed building repairs not made-safety issue. Painting over rusted stairwells does not solve the problem!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat all employees with the respect you demand for yourselves, regardless of employment level.
Enforce accountability within SOX and company policies/procedures and eliminate the "good ol' boy" environment.

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

    Pros

    Great relationship between top management and employees

    Cons

    Opportunity for growth is not always readily available within the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat only the top management very well. Ensure that all employees are given the best compensation and recognition for their efforts. Otherwise, most of your young talents would move to other Companies that are willing to provide a more competitive pay package.
