I worked at Dresser-Rand

Pros

There are some positions which allow functional specialization. D-R has some experienced engineers who have spent time with the company working in a particular specialization and have developed a reputation in their field.

Cons

Management seems to be more interested in cutting costs rather than product development. Poorly documented procedures. Heavy reliance on procedures started by some "key" people without any questions. Management hires/fires personnel easily and are easily perturbed by stock market.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of outsourcing, develop talents in house. Retain specialists rather than treating them as dispensable good to haves. Too many managers - not many to do the actual work.

    Pros

    Great experience initially. Learned a lot from my co-workers and supervisors.

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement for young professionals. Many had left or were leaving when I left.
    Sr. Executives reside in Houston and seem disconnected from majority of employees who reside in upstate New York. Hiring seems to happen in Houston while NY employees are left to do more with less.
    Focus on promoting engineers into management positions instead of professional managers. People with poor attitudes are not managed out and have poisoned the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on young professionals outside the EMAP program. Reconnect with NY employees.
