      I have been working at Dresser-Rand full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Good pay, average benefits, very good people on the floor that care about the things they make and keeping the customers up, running, and happy.

      Cons

      Purchased by Siemens, they are closing all the D-R plants.

      Advice to Management

      Advocate for your people, educate Siemens management on how the industrial steam turbine business works, because they are totally clueless and bumbling.
