    Pros

    Company has a broad range of products and locations to work.

    Cons

    Company is being managed for short term results vs longer term competitive position. Layoffs and downsizing is causing a loss over talented people needed to sustain this company.

    Pros

    -- The international nature of the businesses makes it complex, but also interesting. -- The diversity of products and customers served provides employees a wide variety of areas in which they can excel.

    Cons

    -- The focus on reducing compensation and benefits in all areas outside the executive suite can make for a tough environment in which to work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to use the really great Gardner Denver Way internal business system to leverage the company's synergies proactively with organic growth through customer-driven innovation excellence.

    I worked at Gardner Denver as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Global reach, industry leader, great mission statement

    Cons

    Corporate culture is a "good old boy" network. Extremely top-down flow of information. Disregard for the needs of workers is endemic to the corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Allow information to flow freely in all directions - up, down, and laterally. This will spark innovation and reduce talent loss.

    Cons

    Decent pay. Decent benifits. Great product. Decent facilities. Close to home, so short commute. Has potential to become an amazing company.

    Advice to Management

    "Good ol boy club" if you aren't part of the beer drinking club. ...don't expect any real progression up the company ladder. Ignorant and lazy group leaders. Sweeping under the rug mentality of bad parts issues, lack of parts issuses, sexual harassment, and ignorance. Safety and quality are only important to management in the first week of the month. After that. ....it's only about numbers and shipping out units.
