    I have been working at Danfoss International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    High Emotional Intelligence company culture, Strong focus on work/life balance, leadership/life development training opportunities are abundant and of excellent quality, culture of continuous improvement in all aspects (Safety, Quality, People development, Delivery, Efficiency, Efficacy, Cost, etc...). Global company where cultural competency is engrained in the cultural DNA. Diversity is not only valued, but encouraged/relied upon for achieving goals. Danfoss products touch nearly every facet of society from infrastructure, energy, and food production. Strong leadership and commitment to innovation and R&D investments. Tying not only what was accomplished throughout the year, but also HOW it was accomplished (behaviors) really helps to reinforce and support the company culture and focus on the right things (the customer, and people) so that the financial performance will always follow.

    Cons

    Retirement benefits are somewhat weak compared to other companies, with Danfoss contributing only 3% of salary and matching only $0.50 per $1.00 up to 6% employee contribution (3% matching). Personal perception that sometimes there is an overemphasis on financial performance and cost, to the detriment of Quality (view from only one division of the company - may be different in others). Generally not many deltas for me, and I have been with the company for 15+ years and have witnessed it

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and the constant focus on continuous improvement (surveys, feedback, action plans, PDCA, etc.) and work in build in communication feedback loops across and among all levels of the business. Keep constant vigilance against cost performance overbalancing the other priorities.

    I worked at Danfoss International full-time

    Pros

    Free coffee and tea. Some really nice people scattered within.

    Cons

    Company culture is based on a buddy system made up of 'yes men' and narcissists. If you are not apart of the system, you will not be considered for promotions or given much respect for your work efforts. HR is closed door and very little assistance to non-managerial employees.

    Advice to Management

    Respect all employees, provide mentoring for willing employees, dissolve the 'buddy system' and listen to non-managerial employees. Also increase resources in non-managerial positions.

    Pros

    Danfoss has a very strong product portfolio. From an engineering and performance perspective they put lots of resources into making sure their products are of high quality.

    Cons

    The company is big and at times it is hard to get things done with speed. The overall organizational setup is also at times not clear, this makes it hard for customers to get in touch with the right people.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to foster talent globally. Europe and Chine are the core markets but make sure to always hire and retain the best talent also in other parts of the world.
