    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 has good benefits for its employees and values each person as part of their team. Dover also embraces a continuous improvement mindset that empowers its employees.

    Cons

    I work in the energy sector which sees fluctuations in the market and slows the demand for products. This would be the only con to my current position but, this is a market issue not a dover issue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Fully supported in growth opportunities in career or education. Love Dover's core values.

    Large corporation so things could take longer to resolve than desired.

    Rely less on revenue to determine layoffs & more face-to-face time with employees. Sometimes can feel like a number instead of a person.
