Great in some ways, not so great for technology people

Manager Engineering (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

I worked at Dresser Wayne full-time for more than 5 years

ProsVery strong company management keeps things moving whatever is happening in the world. Downturns have minimal impact on employees.

ConsSmokestack mentality prevents them from understanding how to invigorate the business with technology innovation. Since this is their strategic goal, the burn up the people they hire to do this for them. They always try to avoid risk instead of trying to spread their bets and get a payoff.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that technology based growth is inherently inefficient, that many failures lie behind each success. Give your bright thinkers the chance to take risks and don't execute them when it doesn't work out. Literally, spread your bets and expect to lose most of them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
