I worked at Dresser-Rand full-time for less than a year

Pros

The company overall pays very well and you get 3 weeks of vacation right of the bat. There is an option to buy an extra week of vacation. However, there is no work / life balance.

Cons

I only spent few months in this company due to the negative environment in the finance department. There is a high turn over rate and employees are extremely unhappy there.

Management tends to talk you down and even cross the line by yelling and screaming.

Also, forget about all the extra perks you may get in bigger companies.

Overall, the culture in D-R is very harsh and cold

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respect is key in a work environment. There is northing wrong with getting to know the people that work for you.

    I worked at Dresser-Rand

    Pros

    Co-workers are nice as they are people.

    Cons

    treat employees harshly, never explain what they want-they assume you can read their mind and then when you do something wrong you get wacked for it-never knowing what hit your or why. HR is a joke as is manipulated by HQ and kept busy doing "piddly things".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is full of bi-polar people who lie and manipulate their employees. All decisions are based on the dollar, thus the company runs behind as they are chasing the dollar ranther than fulflling their customers orders. They claim its to maximize shareholder value but in the end shareholder value is minimized.

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

    Pros

    Good Pay, better people. Money is good depending on the hours you work. The people that work here are second to none. Most are always willing to show you how to do a specific task properly.

    Cons

    Extended periods of time away from home. Weeks, months and sometimes several months away can give the family left at home a sense of detachment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On jobs that will be 30 days or longer, offer to fly a spouse or loved one out to the location. This would boost moral on extended stays away from them and may even save a marriage or two.
