    I have been working at Dresser-Rand full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    interesting and challenging work. Great people to work with. Good resources. Adequate pay. Good work and private life work balance.

    Cons

    Cyclic business with ups and downs. Work can get slow but if you are willing to look for ways to improve the products or process, you will never run out of things to do.

    Advice to Management

    Don't push product out the door at the end of each quarter just to meet projections. It causes mistakes and damages the company's reputation when sub standard product is shipped.
