    Pros

    The pay as an intern was really good. The management of the company is very well organized.

    I worked at Danfoss International full-time

    Pros

    The Danfoss MD offices are a friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Danfoss should provide at least 2 months on site in the office for new hires that telecommute. They did not. Other companies don't either. Big mistake.

    Pros

    Good colleagues to work with

    Cons

    Small possibility of advancement. During the recession we were forced to "voluntarily" take a week off to protect the bottom line for shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up the micromanaging and learn the servant leadership that you espouse.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Nothing, nada, negative, no, run away.

    Cons

    They will smile and tell you that all is ok, then stab you in the back. No training offered in the way of safety. when I asked about this, I was told they were working on it for years.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and learn how to communicate better with your employees, and get the mandatory training for job safety.

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere, Attitude, and flexible hours.

    Cons

    There is a lot of complacency maintaining wage structures. The reward system is constantly re-tooled. Its difficult to build a relationship with a manager. The pay raises are 2.09% over ten years so the only way to increase you income is climb the ladder. This is used as a motivator instead of a fair pay scale and bonuses. Usually pay 12-17% below market value for positions.

    Advice to Management

    Pay wages comparable to similar global businesses. If you want the best...pay for it. Allow more local control. Its difficult to move things up the management chain when it is dictated from Denmark.
