    Pros

    The atmosphere is Light and people communicate through issues. Management checks in to see how things are going.

    Teamwork does not always happen and some people you can never find.

    Instead of letting people focus on personal gain make sure everyone is trained so they can fill in where needed.

    Pros

    FLSmidth offered better than average pay and excellent benefits. They have a nice workplace and are concerned with the wellbeing of their workers.

    Cons

    They are a mid-sized multinational company that sometimes feels disconnected. You see a lot of familiar faces, but often wonder what it is that they do.

    Advice to Management

    Too many layers of management leave you wondering who is in charge? The organization leaves employees without the sense of ownership. Many people simply push responsibility to someone else because of the lack of personal ownership of a project.

  8. Great place to gain global work experience.

    Pros

    FLSmidth has a good work-life balance along with the standard corporate benefits that you can expect at a large global corporation. Promotion opportunities exist within many of the different departments.

    Cons

    The office culture is cubicle land and most coworkers are friendly and easy to get along with. Some training opportunities exist but can be limited at times due to workload fluctuations.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to keep in mind that the employees are what makes an organization great.

    Pros

    Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Current management, specifically the new CEO has lost complete focus of what the company does, sell equipment. It is clear management has lost control with monthly restructuring and knee jerk reactions. Perhaps the goal is simply to downsize and sell the division, which would be for the best. Continuing under the current CEO will only burry what's left of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what our core business is, selling equipment.

    TOO many managers. upper management has no clue of day to day opperations, company just went thru major business group re-alignment, still un resolved positions or management. the politics distract every core of the business
