    I worked at Donaldson Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company still has good products based on technology developed years ago and the pay is reasonable in a good location.

    Cons

    Experience, patents, and value added activities are overshadowed by politics and back stabbing. Many managers don't understand the products or processes, but are good at puting together timelines and presentations. The focus is on cost reduction and repackaging old technology rather than product development.

    Advice to Management

    Update your policies so unhappy talented employees can move to other departments, and don't be afraid to correct bad decisions / promotions. You will find the talented "little guys" are more motivated and able to immediately able to contribute when allowed.
