    Pros

    Pay, benefits, and growth opportunities are good and there are opportunities to contribute in a meaningful way. This is a brand new office in a cool area (3rd Ward) of town so there is quite a lot of bars and restaurants close to the office. the company is paying for my parking too.

    Cons

    New office, so policies and procedures are still being developed. There has been quite a bit of construction, so the environment has been somewhat disruptive and congested, but that seems to be getting better.

    Advice to Management

    More communication about how the different businesses are doing.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow your employees. You are doing a great job!

    Pros

    Gardner Denver has a good culture that fosters a team work environment. Management tends to stay off your back if you're getting you're work done. I haven't been micromanaged and receive good feed back on what I'm doing right and what I can get better at. The work life balance is the best I've seen compared to other places I've worked and am aware of through friends and family. The company provides ample vacation days as well as holidays.

    Cons

    Pay isn't bad, but I know they could do better. There are only a few communication gaps in operations, but the good news is I see ,and am a part of, these gaps closing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
