    Very great people to work with, and doing very innovative things from an IT perspective to go in the right direction.

    Work to give the great employees great benefits.

    Pros

    SPX has been working hard to create synergies within their resources, brands and customers. This transformation does have some growing pains but it is for the greater good of the company, the employees, the vendors and customers. Specifically with ClydeUnion Pumps, the company rolled out a new sales incentive program and a non-compete agreement. This was not to negatively impact anyone or any jobs, but simply to be consistent across the company in how all employees are paid and would actually provide a better base level compensation program. The non-compete is also standardized within SPX, as well as where the industry is trending. Successful companies invest a lot in their products, services, brands, employees and a non-compete agreement protects those interests, but does not prevent a person from growing their career elsewhere. There are just stipulations in which to do so. SPX certainly values it's employees, all 14,000+. Please know that reviews on Glassdoor are not always accurate and many are submitted by dis-gruntled former employees. To get a realistic perspective, give us a shot and see for yourself.

    Cons

    Again to the transformation culture that is going on currently at SPX. In any company, there is change and sometimes people are scared of change, but may realize after the fact that change has created jobs, created efficiency, created business and created growth. I am sure, like every company, there are opportunities to improve and that is certainly a goal at SPX. It really is hard to please everybody, but we try to create and maintain a great place to work and encourage growth and development in managing ones career.

    I worked at SPX full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Personal freedom to organise your work. Good pay and benefits. Non other pros found... sorry

    Cons

    Don't be innovative because your ideas are not appreciated. Very political and yes-man mentality. Corporate rules, even if you disagree and try to sell your idea; take it ot leave it... I left! There is no team but just a group of individuals fighting for their own benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! A company is not a political party. Listen to your employees. Walk the talk and lead by example.

    Pros

    Fantastic products with some truly devoted employees.

    Cons

    SPX has dismantled a company that had a bright future. No clear direction from upper management with zero accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the captain (s) get people in there that will lead and fix the ship. ClydeUnion was a fantastic place to work... Sad to see SPX get let down the path by VP's who do not seem to care about the future of the company.

    Communicate to the employees more often
