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

    Pros

    Decent 401K and potential bonus

    Cons

    Middle and senior management has made MANY bad decisions that have cost 100's of people their jobs while they maintain theirs. Employees that were experts in their field have been replaced by those who say they are experts.

    Advice to Management

    Review middle management decisions closer to see what is really going on. Should have valued the employees that were TRUE experts in their field.

    Pros

    good co-workers, decent 401k match,

    Cons

    Company is dysfunctional, lack communication, planning, vision, terrible customer focus. Very disappointed. business has plummeted year after year since Chart acquired the company. Management fails to learn from their mistakes. .

    Advice to Management

    Learn from your mistakes and change your attitude toward customer service. Either that or sell your BioMed division to someone that can better manage the business and focus on the customer's need and service quality.

    I worked at Chart Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most people want to do a good job. Product development is good, manufacturing equipment is excellent. Process control is above average. Chart tries to build comraderie through lunches and off-site events.

    Cons

    Management is afraid of the union. Lasting changes are impossible when crybaby floor employees get their way. Supervisors shield poor performing employees because their superiors won't support them. Management is secretive if you're not on the "inside".

    Advice to Management

    Get some stones and cut the dead wood. Get onto the floor and care about people more. Doing things in secret won't get people to buy into your ideas.

    Pros

    There are some very good people who will work their tails off for the customers and their fellow co-workers.

    Cons

    The management team seems to have been trained by the same management trainers that consulted on the movie "Office Space".

    Advice to Management

    People are the intellectual property that will grow your company into the future, not the bottom line,

    I have been working at Chart Industries full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    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.
