    I have been working at IDEX full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Promotions are readily available especially if you have college degree and better with graduate degree. Fair wages and good working conditions. Prides itself on ethical business behaviour. I have worked for a couple of IDEX business units for 23 years since IDEX purchase the independent company i worked for.

    Cons

    Ever 2 years the company tries to reinvent itself when new CEO or President comes in. It's flavor of the day. Then they go thru all kinds of changes and loose quite a number of good experienced people. Like any publicly traded corporation they are in it only for the shareholders. Experienced personal dont matter they just get some MBA with more education than brains and spend millions on their new flavor of the day. They never seem to consult front line personal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New business concepts and buzzwords don't make you money, it's your people who do. Listen to your front line and average worker. They know the business and market.

    Pros

    IDEX is a large organization that is lean enough to give you the opportunity to try new things and develop new skills. The leadership is very invested in the people and there are great development programs and you are surrounded by smart people. There are opportunities to work on global projects and with different teams. The company is growing and investing in new technology.

    Cons

    There should be more communication from leadership to the rest of the businesses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time on communication.

    I worked at IDEX full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    IDEX is a good company overall. The CEO is good (both Larry Kingsbury as well as Andy Silvernail). The benefits are about normal for a professional.

    Cons

    IDEX allows the local businesses to pretty much run themselves. So the high quality corporation can be undermined by bad local management policies. My experience at the West Jordan facility was high turnover of general managers which caused a lot of problems. Then the last general manager was terrible. He was young, combative, arrogant, and disrespectful of the employees. There are about 35 people working at the West Jordan plant and from the time this general manager started to when I left, 12 other people had left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and then keep quality local management. Give opportunities to grow at local levels, not just by moving to different divisions.

    Pros

    The Freedom of not being in an office all day. I travel through many cities every day. No day is ever the same. Good pay, company vehicle (with GPS :() and working out of my house.

    Cons

    The company seems to be headed towards difficult times and the supervisors are cutting our hours and overtime. I don't have the warm fuzzy feeling that I used to have working here.
