    I worked at Dresser-Rand full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary and some good co-workers

    Cons

    Union is constantly at war with management. It is really a toxic relationship. Top management turnover is rapid which causes yo-yo effect on projects. They bring in worthless consultants to band aid problems.

    Advice to Management

    Get a long term plan and stick to it. Create a functioning culture for all employees.

    I worked at Dresser-Rand full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hours, benefits. Other then management the others employees are great people.

    Cons

    Management is cut throat. Hired my replacement, had me train him then let me go 3 days after i closed on my house, exhausting my savings. The day after my wife totals her car and while i have a 7 month old at home to take care of. 3 months before my sons first christmas. Then HR admits it was the plan all along to do this exact move : have me train my replacement then fire me etc. Everyone there claims to be christian yet will stab you in the back for their own gain. My boss lied to my face 3 different times the day i was let go. They let me go on a Wednesday and he didnt even come out to speak with me that Monday or Tuesday to warn me , when he would normally check in daily with me. He has no balls to look in a mans face and tell him they are letting me go he just hid in his office till that Wednesday. Karma will smack you all in the face one day.

    Advice to Management

    How about worry about your employees. Dont look at them as items to just throw to the side when you see fit. Karma is a son of a gun.

    Pros

    Per diem, own hotel room.

    Cons

    Everything about this job is a con. They show no appreciation for their employees, talked down and berate you. There is almost no communication. Getting any kind of info about anything is like pulling teeth, and they act like you are ruining their day for asking anything. Supervisors won't train at all. Raises are none existent. I could go on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what professionalism is and teach it to the people that are appointed said roles in the field.

    Pros

    I would have said flexibility and family. Oh and 401K

    Cons

    Don't care if you have new ideas, Don't care about your family life work comes first no matter what. Managers are two faced and continually go back on there word. Pay sucks as do raises.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of most senior positioned people as they are stuck in their ways and fail to inspire new talent. Like i said most of them but not all. Allow more flexibility in work schedule for all employees.
