    I have been working at Dover Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture and supportive. Corporate office environment extremely positive compared to many other large companies. Everyone maintains a winning attitude for the most part. Lots of freedom to make strides your own way, literally you make a recommendation and don't be surprised if your championing it going forward. Diverse and solid people working around you from various working backgrounds, experts in many roles across all areas. Pretty refreshing to be in such large company and get the support and feel of a smaller company.

    Cons

    Travel does can get pretty hectic at times depending on the work your doing. However, support is there to book your travel based on your needs (family). Also, great to return and people say good to see you back! No big negatives

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. A bit more exposure to a detailed long-term strategy would be great to understand for many. Also, a clear common goal from top trickled down would make sense. Part of knowing long term strategy would help shape your annual goals and strategy for your work at individual level.

    Pros

    Dover offers various levels of engagement and a myriad of opportunities for employees to grow, relocate and engage in a variety of functional opportunities around the world.

    Cons

    With an acquisition strategy and autonomous operation of the operating companies, it can be challenging to understand all employment opportunities. Dover is actively pursuing centralized databases to ease this process going forward.

    Dover is an organization that provides ample opportunities for professional and personal growth. If you have the passion, work ethic, and flexibility lateral and vertical movement is always an option.

    With so many Opco's it can be difficult to understand what opportunities are available.

    Advice to Management

    Continue communicating with the Opco's on market conditions and vision.
