    Don't fall for the hype

    Management (Current Employee) Olathe, KS

    ProsNot too many. Company is going downhill and every attempt to improve makes it worse.

    ConsCompany is led by folks in Denmark with little business experience outside their small environment. They believe that only Danish opinions matter, even when presented with management and marketing data that shows their methods to be prone to failure. They will sell you being a "great place to work" and "caring about people" but then fire people for having opinions that differ from leadership.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that the narrow, provincial view of Danish engineers is not a successful recipe for running an international company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The Audi of pumping industry

    Sales Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsGood general atmosphere and great brand. Grundfos is not listed in stock, instead it is owned by a family run foundation, and this really shows. The general atmosphere is way more productive, innovative and people oriented than in usual money-first kind of companies. The brand is well respected among the client base and making sales just happens.

    ConsBig ships turn slowly, some projects lack agility.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe marketing first -mentality has its toll when products can't be delivered in time.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It is a Danish company and working with the Danish culture is a great experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe benefits are outstanding and salaries are very fair. Plenty of training is offered to support career interests. Learning is highly encouraged.

    ConsAmerican management in some areas of the business is weak; leadership and people skills are somewhat lacking. Some managers do not take sincere interest in cultivating the growth of their employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChoose managers with strong leadership and vision, as well as mentoring and people skills who see how his/her team fits into the big picture and are interested in cultivating a strong cohesive team.

    Personal experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSmall group to work with in Sales office. There are lots of benefits interm of medical and insurance, there is also onsite fitness room. Office environment is spacious lots of friendly people.

    ConsSometime there is not enough resources, so outsourcing has become the norm. For some reason department seems to stay within department doesn't seems to be working together. It only seems they are working together is because some product required them to commucate with other department, otherwise socially they seem to stay within their own. Personally, they lie directly to employees when facing tough time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManager comes and go at this company, we like to joke about them if they sit in the bowl fish "glass" office they won't be here long. Just like we predicted, if you get promoted to one of those glass room you won't last long here at the company. For somereason or the other they don't seem to stay or last long when manager go there. My two sense.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
