Great company for a long career

Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee)
Elkton, MD

ProsWonderful company culture that engages you and lets you contribute your best. Enterprise has a strong technology base and leverages for long term results.

ConsNot a great place for the individual that needs a lot of direction unless directly involved in making the products. There is a great diversity of management styles throughout the organization and that can be difficult to navigate for some.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Not What it Used to Be

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Elkton, MD

    I have been working at W.L. Gore full-time for more than 10 years
