    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.

    Congrats on joining Chart; since we are comprised of many different divisions and products, it can sometimes seem like there is a lack of clear vision; I would encourage you to continue to ask... More

    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.

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

    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.

    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

    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,
