    Advice to Management

    The lead thinks he know more then the manager behind the manager's back he use threat tactics that's why they have such a big turnover if management new how this one particular guy come at people when they are working they would make a change by getting rid of him

    February 14, 2018Chief Operations Officer

    Thank you for posting on Glassdoor! Management takes every step to ensure that employees are treated fairly and receive the information that they need to be successul. Unfortunately, managers are not always made aware of problems but will ensure immediate and swift action if given the opportunity to address concerns. We would challenge our current employees and potential employees who read this to approach management to find a solution. Anonymity is important and crucial in some cases, however, we must know who to approach to rectify an issue. Thank you for the compliment and the advice to management!

    I worked at Bürkert Fluid Control Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Had a few great colleagues. Pay and benefits were good

    Cons

    Management in Germany has zero business sense and make the worst decisions that leave the company with frustrated customers and employees. Political games are big, if you brown nose the right people at the right time you can survive. If you are aligned with the wrong people you will be discarded no matter how much you have given over the years.

    Advice to Management

    If you are a global company your board should not consist of only likeminded Germans. Take input from the local offices, they actually know what works in their market and what doesn’t.

    I worked at Bürkert Fluid Control Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Competitive pay and great benefits with generous paid time off. Friendly and flexible work environment with lots of skilled professionals and cutting edge technology and innovation.

    Cons

    Very poor leadership and communication between departments and headquarters in Germany. Constantly shifting of directions days before a deadline approached just because management refused to involve and inform all the appropriate teams when a project started. Had to constantly put out small fires which created a tremendous amount of unnecessary work. In my opinion most of the frustration could have been avoided if... the company offered some type of TRAINING to their employees and IF PROCEDURES were available. It felt like management had a small size company mentality that gets many people trapped on a job without possibilities of career advancement unless you move on.

    Advice to Management

    What is that? Keep in mind that “People leave managers, not companies.” Rewarding people with more work was never gratifying unless you are the one giving the work.

    I have been working at Bürkert Fluid Control Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The USA division a very toxic environment at every level except for the complete inexperienced upper management team. If you have absolutely no experience in the process industry or selling in the USA you are qualified for an uppermanagement position in this company. This company has a massive lack of leadership starting with the CEO in Germany, who does not know what industry this company is in and spends millions... on pet projects and new products that just fail. He also buys garbage small companies that always go under…it is a joke. The customer is the last thing on this company’s mind, 6-12 weeks deliveries are normal, product returns for evaluations are up to 6 months. If you are looking for an overpriced fair product this is the company for you. If you are looking for a job in sales I do not recommend this company. They turnover 30% of their sales force and overall company a year. Long-term sales position is 3 years. If you are in need of a job then take it and keep looking, because you will not last at this company. You will be cursed out by more customers working for this company than you have ever experienced. They will eliminate part numbers and certifications without warning and that is just too bad for the customer. If you are good at stabbing people in the back then this is a good company for you. This is a complete survival environment. What is good is the benefits and salary. They need to pay you a good wage to put up with all the crap this company gives you.

    Very innovative company. Folks in Europe are great to work with.

    Cons

    Too Little too late. Fear mongering Management tactics Conflict amongst segments "Game of Thrones" type of environment - only in North America

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what you can do well and not be everything to all. Listen to your employees without Malic. They do know a thing or two as you did hire them to engage and try improve the company.

    Pros

    Team Members were a delight to work with.

    Cons

    *Management in US has been chaotic and without focus. The constant change within the organization does not allow for team unity, long-term thinking, or the ability to streamline processes. *Little trust between management and team members *Constant turnover with the inside and outside team members. This greatly affects the product knowledge and way to market.
