    I have been working at Dover Corporation full-time (More than a year)


    Great culture and supportive. Corporate office environment extremely positive compared to many other large companies. Everyone maintains a winning attitude for the most part. Lots of freedom to make strides your own way, literally you make a recommendation and don't be surprised if your championing it going forward. Diverse and solid people working around you from various working backgrounds, experts in many roles across all areas. Pretty refreshing to be in such large company and get the support and feel of a smaller company.


    Travel does can get pretty hectic at times depending on the work your doing. However, support is there to book your travel based on your needs (family). Also, great to return and people say good to see you back! No big negatives

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. A bit more exposure to a detailed long-term strategy would be great to understand for many. Also, a clear common goal from top trickled down would make sense. Part of knowing long term strategy would help shape your annual goals and strategy for your work at individual level.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dover Corporation (Downers Grove, IL) in June 2017.


    It only took about a couple days to finalize everything. The interview was very friendly nothing to be stressed about. The Hiring manager did a really good job asking questions and making it seem just like any old conversation. I was also interviewed by the Vice President which was even easier than the one before!
