    "Excellent for career advancement, but at the price of soul crushing morale"

    Pros

    Working at Chart provides exceptional opportunity to advance in your career in terms of increasing your knowledge and experience. Benefits are quite good.

    Cons

    Compensation seems to lag behind the industry average. Information exchange between business units is quite difficult at times. You are ultimately responsible for team building. Bring a positive attitude with you; this company needs more folks that are upbeat and cheerful.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more team building company events. Do whatever it takes to build morale. Chart has good people, but they need to be commended or rewarded for their contributions.

    Pros

    Chart has been on an expansion track for year and seems well positioned for the future.

    Cons

    Manufacturing managers tend to micro manage instead of letting their qualified people do what they are best at. Get in the "Good Old Boys Club" you could have a job for life. If you don't like playing politics you may not like it.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the favoritism by management. Keep the best qualified.

    I have been working at Chart Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable company for growth in most of the business units. Global manufacturing presence to help expand products and stability in most markets. Buys up the competition, good technology and quality of product, dedicated and satisfied customers.

    Cons

    Runs with big internal systems but too many non value added processes and people bring it down. Lacking cohesive effort between departments. Under compensated and under valued for all the hours that are required to be worked for most dedicated salary people. Long term vision in some areas is poor, bad business decisions are paid for by lay-offs and closings.
