    Pros

    GD offers many learning opportunities, great benefits including medical, optical and dental insurances, 401-K, and vacation. They are very supportive of family and aware of your life outside of employment.

    Cons

    As GD is a global company, you have to be willing to work with International Divisions and Companies within all aspects of employment.

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

    Pros

    The people are reasonable. There are very few "difficult" people. Everyone that works hard, and keeps a cool head is honored and offered promotional opportunity as they arise.

    Cons

    Location. Although Sedalia has most of what anyone could need, people who like living in large cities might not be used to it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Be sure to take notice of those whose work generally goes unnoticed. Small recognition goes a long way here. Empowering people to take charge of their responsibilities without micro management is a real strength here.

    Good company to work for

    I worked at Gardner Denver

    Pros

    Great coworkers. The managers took an interest in their subordinates and everyone seemed to have an "open door" policy.

    Cons

    Not a lot of lateral movement or chances to cross-train. For the most part, it felt that whatever position you were hired for would be the position you would remain in for the duration of your tenure.

    Pros

    Managers know the product lines and are very helpful if you do have questions, not a stressful work environment, employees are easy going yet get the work done.

    Cons

    Some employees have annoying habits that make it hard to work in a cubical type area. Occasionally when senior members are out of town it is difficult to contact them when needed, even if they are on business.
