    Pros

    The company priorities are in order and well directed. Good balance between work and home life. The company is on the move.

    Cons

    HR is managed by attorney and causes delay and inconsistant reactions. Sometimes a bad HR decision is a good business decision.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and pushing further growth.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits package is top notch. The plant I work at, has a smaller shop feel, which is a comfortable working enviroment, but have the security and finances of a huge company. From tooling and inserts to protective equipment and housekeeping supplies, if you need, tell a supervisor or tool room attendant, and you will get it. This is an enviroment that is not only pleasant to work in, but makes it easy to want to to a good job, and have pride and concern in what you do. This entire package is far and above any other machine shop I've worked in, hands down.

    Cons

    I can't say this issue is with Flowserve, because it certainly is'nt limited to just there: but the overhead of the office workers, seems a bit much in my opinion. I certainly do not have another person running my machines at the same time I am. But that seems to be a common practice in an office atmosphere, several employees doing the same thing at the same facility at the same time. I of course have a limited scope, however, as stated, not uncommon anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    If things should ever come to a job cutting scenerio- look behind desks, and not in front of a machine.

    Pros

    Great pay, comfortable environment, decent benefits, very stable company, an ever expanding industry, merit based raise system, yearly bonus payout, and advancement opportunities are just a few of the great things about Flowserve.

    Cons

    You will be a small cog in a very large machine. Flowserve is a huge company. Sometimes praise and recognition for a job well done is a little lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Praise and recognition for a job well done or a job done above and beyond the call of normalcy should be encouraged. At the same time, people who do very little should be reprimanded.


  6. Very pleasant. It is a very profesional company.

    I have been working at Flowserve full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture is rich with pride and innovation with a competitive spirit to be the best at the heart of the organization. Having a diverse business portfolio grown through the commitment to quality and customer service, as well as mergers and acquisitions, Flowserve has company stability and leverage in the marketplace. The company is committed to innovation which provides an array of opportunities to solve problems and find best in class solutions.

    Cons

    I think there is still opportunity to connect people internationally and find solutions to increase the engagement and inclusion across the globe.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up - having a commitment to top talent and the best leaders will take us beyond our goals.

    I worked at Flowserve full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company and my supervisers went above and beyond to help me work and still take care of my husband when he got sick suffering with ALS. They worked with me and the time I needed to be at home to take of family. When i was going to leave to stay at home, they insisted that I take a family medical leave for 12 weeks so that I would actually be employed for a full ten years so I could take advantage of my full retirement. They did not have to do that and it has made all the difference in the wolrd now that I am alone.

    Cons

    None, really. Like all companies, there are always problems but this company really cares about it's employees and at the same time stay competetive in the world of finance.

    Advice to Management

    No comments, your doing a great job.
