    A mixed bag!

    Pros

    Awesome people across the organization. I’ll definitely keep in touch with many. Of course with any company you have a couple of bad apples but 90% good. I would consider coming back if compensation/structure was changed. Most office based jobs are remote currently. Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Ridiculous micromanagement in Marcom which leads to poor moral. Sometimes it’s a case of the wrong people in management roles, and/or managers not able to make actual decisions. Roles are expanding but compensation is not expanding which leads to job burn out. When someone leaves, don’t dump the work on other employees. If you an eliminate a role, you shouldn’t bring it back tacked on to another without proper compensation and job description revision. Zero marketing/sales alignment (Marcom).

    Great people, downward sloping business model

    Pros

    The people are great. If you are there for long enough(or get a high enough position) the vacation time will add up (3 weeks after 5 years etc). Health insurance is good.

    Cons

    Used to be very family friendly and employee oriented company. Both of these things have been declining over the years. The yearly raises are typical 2-5% which doesn't even keep up with inflation. If the company re focuses on the employees again this could be an awesome place to work for but until then expect to be overworked and underpaid.

    Dedicated Employee Base

    Pros

    Very loyal and dedicated employee base, who really care about the company and its mission. The Company designed and manufactures products that really make a positive impact on the environment and the world by reducing emissions and harmful leaks. It has a wide variety of product lines, and sells its products around the world (in over 100 countries), which makes it a very interesting place to work. The Company also has a number of employee engagement activities that show it really cares about the people who work here.

    Cons

    The company can be overly tradition bound, but has made significant changes over the past 6 or 7 years to become more contemporary.
