    I have been working at Gardner Denver full-time

    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.

    Pros

    It was well known that GDT was a leader in its field and has been a nice place to work over the years. The workforce has historically been very, very stable. That showed that GDT was indeed a good place to work. Management gave employees support in medical emergencies.

    Cons

    No employee wellness program to speak of. Also, there was no formal training programs until recently.

    Advice to Management

    Training programs for sales personnel and for mid-level and upper management would benefit the company.I would also establish an employee wellness program.
