    I worked at Flowserve as an intern

    Pros

    Very integrated work, even at a low level, you're right in the action. Opportunities to deal with international companies, and get to know all suppliers well. Hard working and people always willing to take a second to answer questions.

    Cons

    Moving upward in the company could be difficult. Make sure you get an offer in writing or they may renege on their verbal offer of extension.

    Pros

    Good working environment, Good benefits, Not much work or work pressure in IT.
     Management is okay. Good team members. Flexible timings. Good bonus, pension plan, Health Insurance, excellent 401k match. I enjoyed working here.

    Cons

    No proper Processes or Direction in IT. Mostly legacy code and legacy systems and more of maintenance work. If your are technically inclined, this may not be the company for you. Not much scope for career growth in IT.
    appraisals are like peanuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually, my last year with this employer was not listed in the drop down menu, so I defaulted to 2010.

    Typical disfunctional company, some areas better than others, blindly driven by engineer types not good business people.

    I worked at Flowserve full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good money, good products, potential to carve out your own professional island in a sea of disorganization

    Cons

    Management run on emotion, not facts. Lots of cronyism. Some people should have been gone long ago. People at the top only know they should push the latest trends and buzzwords. They have no real vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could be an incredible company but there is no real plan from the top down. If you don't figure out how to schedule soon the competition is going to finish eating your lunch! 40 weeks to make a pump and you can't schedule the parts on time? Parts for jobs continue to be lost because you have a lousy process for tracking from dock to stock to job. Can't justify hiring real professionals in this area? Jeeez. The culture is to blame, curse and yell. That is just lame in 2014. Wake up! Take that top level bonus money and spend it on the employees. How about an on site cafeteria? How about getting rid of the 1950's desks? How about giving employees the privacy professionals deserve? Who wants to sit with their back exposed so management can see what they are doing? Is it a place people want to work? Better take a look around at successfull companies, do they have any of the above? If you think I'm describing a country club work environment, then YOU are a dinosaur from the 1940s. You have all the metrics in the world but you are still failing miserably, why? Could it be that you think that guys like the one you brought over from Neuclear to be in charge are the right type? You know who I mean; the one who gleefully, in large training sessions, told how he would fire people and then go back to his hotel and order a nice steak dinner and sleep like a baby because those people were slackers. Yea, that's right, those are not people you want running your company. Glad he is gone, hope you learned something from that one.

    I have been working at Flowserve

    Pros

    Benefits are average for comparable firms.
    Typical co-workers good to work with, strive for performance and pride in work.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity based only on politics and not performance.
    Poor support from management, poor tools to perfrom job function.
    Management disconnected. No planning only reactive. No communication.
    Management not trustworthy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to review integrity of management.
    Need to actually commit to emphasized "ethics", "diversity" and "customer service", not merely recite rhetoric.

    Pros

    Very good benefits which includes up to 5 weeks vacation per year, very traditional and strong products in strong markets.

    Cons

    The company has limited strategic planning, a very high overhead structure that limits growth at the plant level. Many cases of limited understanding of markets and growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the good people at the plant make the day to day decisions to met or exceed market expections.
