    I worked at Chart Industries as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are very nice and easy to work with
    communications between employees are effective
    flexible hours

    Cons

    1 I did two semesters of Coop at Chart Industries working in two different department, none of them care about interns. Supervisors are so busy that they barely have time to meet with the intern. They have interns do repetitive boring jobs that full time employees are not willing to do. I did not learn much besides some basic ProE knowledge.

    2 The work is intense but the pay is really the minimum compared to the rates for interns in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about interns and invest more time in them as they are the potential future assets of the company.

    Pros

    Health and financial (retirement savings) benefits are very good. Many of the employees are very friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    You really never know when the next large layoff will occur. At least some of the management is inexperienced. They and and many of their employees are severely over-burdened and underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy your abuse of power, for when the economy improves, many of your employees will inevitably leave.

    Listen to what the people on the floor have to say and dont trust every thing you here from the butt kissers

    I am sorry that your Coop experience was not what you were hoping for; managers and supervisors obviously have a lot of responsibilities to juggle and sometimes are not able to give the support and ... More

    Pros

    The people are very nice. It is a blue collar work environment where the employees are accepting people.

    Cons

    Lack of vision or clear leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to get to know your team.

    Pros

    Company has good equipment and talented, experienced engineers. The work is steady and in a growing field. Quality System is excellent. Good integration with local college to bring in welders.

    Cons

    In some areas, the union presence drags down the company's potential. Management does not understand how to deal with these people so those who care eventally ask, "why bother"?

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent in your approach with methods of change and hold supervisors accountable.

    Pros

    Great IT support and the benefits are fairly good. Many of the employees are very skilled and committed to doing the right thing.

    Cons

    Good old boy network is too powerful given their limited abilities, poor leadership, reactive rather than proactive. Corners are often cut that should not be cut.

    Advice to Management

    New senior management is needed for Caire. The team that is in place has clearly demonstrated that they are not capable of growing the business.

    Pros

    Most of the people are very hospitable and friendly. Great coffee room. Out in the middle of no where, so you don't have to fight traffic.

    Cons

    Poor management, poor vision, poor direction. Out in the middle of nowhere, so if you want to leave for lunch you must drive a considerable distance to reach some place to eat.

    Advice to Management

    You have to empower others to lead.

    Pros

    Most of the people are great, they want to contribute and see the company grow. Benefits are really good and 11 paid holidays.

    Cons

    Management can't see the forest for the trees. There is no innovation at all, quick to shut down any ideas that are outside the box and really have no desire to improve. If you can get the local management past their egos to listen to you, major accomplishment.

    Advice to Management

    Out with the old - in with the new... You aren't going to get anywhere with the local management teams in place now.

    Pros

    Great place to work with little to no staff reduction.

    Cons

    Management is not part of the higher end of the gene pool. They can and will lie to you with a straight face. The management lemmings all run in a straight line with a wac a mole fear. Thinking out side the box will never happen here. And they will not tell the truth about future wages.

    Advice to Management

    Clear the people who lie and the company will soar.
