    Pros

    None that I hve seen.

    Cons

    Be very careful of BioMedical Division under Steve Shaw. This guy is a first class slimeball. He is a bully and discriminates openly. Literally drove the Companies most recent BioMedical acquisition into the ground (sales down 75%-80% under his watch). They alter sales data and steal commissions.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Steve Shaw before his mouth does something to cost the Company big money in a lawsuit. Slimeballs hire slimeballs.

    I worked at Chart Industries (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are very nice. The office space is outside of Atlanta, so traffic to the location is going against traffic!

    Cons

    Clearly did not know what they were doing or where they were going.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Chart Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The are only the things it once was. It was a company that was a great place to work for. Management looked to the future and what was the best for the company, its customers, and for its employee for the long term. Top that with co-workers that were their for the long term and felt like if when they came into work they were able to make a difference in the company and do their part to make it better, which these value often were instilled in the newer employees.

    Cons

    Due to newer management and the change in values most of what made it a great company is lost. I believe management values are only to the benefit to the short term investor and not to the long term investor, customer, or employee.

    Advice to Management

    Make changes before all the old values are lost for good.


  6. "Company Changed"

    I worked at Chart Industries (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    At this time I don't have any upside to the comany

    Cons

    Communication has really changed to none, Changing the work scope which includes higher spec, higher cost, however no concerns for quality or customer. Nitch in market was a quality cooler for an exceptional price, this is no longer the case. Management lies to customers on code issues, employees are not treated as part of the team. This is unfortunate for this company under different management was a good company for both clients and employees.
    I would not recommend to a job seeker and for sure not as a client

    Advice to Management

    Understand were you stand in the market and what you did well. Base decisions on facts not smoke screens. Treat customers well and give them their requirements and do not falsify what they are getting.

    Pros

    The people that are the rank and file are great people.

    Cons

    Management. They seem to hire management who are not educated but fit the good ole boy profile. Fraud and double standards are the act of the day. And I am not kidding about the fraud. Someday the house of cards will collapse and a number of management will be taken off in handcuffs. Unless the arresting officer is a good ole boy.

    Advice to Management

    I tried to report the fraud by looking up on the company's email address the financial auditor. Guess, what there isn't one. The people that need the ethics training are in the front office not the rank and file employees. Clean the thieves out of the company is my recommendation.

    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.
