    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.

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

    Be conscious of customer concerns and needs

    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 Management

    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 Management

    communication could be a little better
