Flowserve was a beyond worth company to work for.

Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee)
Lynchburg, VA

I have been working at Flowserve full-time for more than a year

ProsFlowserve allows you to stand on your own feet. Very flexible with minimum supervision with your managers. The sole ability to learn with mistakes is crucial for growth and development.

ConsManagers have a "pass the buck" attitude. The chance for applying your ideas are often overlooked by your superiors

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a better 90 day orientation for employees to feel more comfortable in their role

No Career Progress

Finance (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Flowserve full-time for more than 8 years

ProsCasual Fridays, friendly environment, big company.

ConsLimited Career progression, Low annual raise, no motivation, Low transparency.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't focus on theoretical stuff by publishing academic theories without applying them. You keep saying your employees are the most important asset, so how the employee turnover is relatively high?
