    I worked at Chart Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Pay and good benefits.
    The job itself was decent.
    Good safety percautions.
    Overtime all the time when busy.
    Good equipment and tools.

    Cons

    Constant rumors and speculation of lay offs
    Zero communication between management and employees, 5 days before a layoff I was kept on temporarily, had new job lined up.
    One product, so boom or bust.
    Area businesses dont want to hire you because they know you will go back when called back.

    Advice to Management

    Somehow fix this crazy layoff roller coaster. Recruited to move half way across state and told 5 years work..2.5 years later on the street.

    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.

    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.
