    I worked at FL Smidth full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable staff, many resources and contacts to use to solve problems

    Cons

    Took too long to get back to customers, lost many deals because of the very slow reaction time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire more sales trained personnel, engineers do not know how to sell.

    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Bethlehem, PA
    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Bethlehem, PA

    I worked at FL Smidth full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work hours/flexibility, decent environment.
    Fair compensation.

    Cons

    Terrible management: Secretive, no long term planning, panicky management, huge disconnect between employees and managers.
    Lack of stability: They hire quickly and lay off even faster.
    Mass layoffs are routine, so workers are always on the lookout.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mass layoffs at the slightest sign of downturn isn't the best way to run a good company.

    FLS Review

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bethlehem, PA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bethlehem, PA

    I have been working at FL Smidth

    Pros

    -Good work environment (laid back)
    -Good benefits and fair compensation
    -Depending on the division there are many good training opportunities

    Cons

    The cement industry is very cyclical and so when things are good FLS will be quick to hire new employees, but when things take a turn for the worse, they are quick to layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to plan ahead for when business and new orders are slow the affect and need for lay offs are not as prominent.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bethlehem, PA

    I worked at FL Smidth

    Pros

    FLSmidth is very trusting of their employees, and very flexible as long as your work gets done, and done well.

    Cons

    If you are coming into FLSmidth in an entry-level capacity, it can be difficult to be pointed in the right direction, or to stay busy with work. There is no hand-holding, you must be able to work independantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more assistance to entry-level employees, so they may be an asset to the organization sooner.
