    I worked at Sulzer Pumps full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Well known OEM of pumps. Well established with 8 or 9 Service Centers.in the United States. World wide operations as well as a Nuclear shop for repairs and they have an "N" Stamp.

    Cons

    OEM mentality regarding competition customers with a tendency to be slightly arrogant. Some of upper management is the good, some not so good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be conscious of customer concerns and needs

    I worked at Sulzer Pumps full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid company with an eye on the future but maybe not the best on making acquisitions. many projects and can be fast paced. Some very good management and then there is the rest. Middle management is great and works together. HR is good but could improve with better proactive employee contact

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't play well together and in some department especially engineer the upper management chides the employees instaed of directing. Company fights against itself in improvement projections. A few bad apple hasn't spoiled the organization but at times leaves a real bad taste.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doesn't listen know or get proactively involved so would not expect any change.

    Pros

    Completely open door for those who want to learn. commit and apply yourself and you will go places with this company. I am not sure how they do it but they seem to hire exceptional employees that make their job look very easy when really it is not. This company appears to really look at the person and their potential abilities

    10 stars for this company!!!!!!!!!!

    Cons

    only down side here is they pay a bit less than the average wage. however, the pros far outweigh the cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communication could be a little better

    Pros

    Health benefits are average, 401k is very good.

    Cons

    You are just a number unless you are part of the good old boy network. The code of ethics is just for show. All I can say is watch your back, loyalty means nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Switzerland needs to take a long hard look at US management, especially CSS.
