I have been working at Donaldson Company full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There is great opportunity to move around and progress with your career. People are contstantly moving around. You have great support, and the people are great. It is a huge company with locations all over the US. You will find a location for yourself if you want to move. If you want to get anywhere in the company working in MN is the best place for you. You will have opportunity to move all over into different areas of the business.

Cons

There are too many large scale projects going on and people tend to be stretched thin. There needs to be more cross training to help with support or different areas. There needs to be more support for the locations reporting to corporate. The IT support is not always available since they are stretched so thin with several projects ongoing.

Advice to Management

Hire more people!

    I have been working at Donaldson Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Descent but not great pay and benefits for the area. Up to five weeks vacation if you stick it out long enough. Company stock seems to be a good performer.

    Cons

    Favortism seems to be common practice at the Frankfort plant. Upgrade jobs seem to be awarded to "golden" people that seem to appear to never do any wrong and hob nob with the management. Women with "assets" also seem to hire right in and get a good upgrade position. Some employees seem to be able to work their own hours as well as pick and choose when they want to work overtime. These same employees also seem to have unlimited internet access and do alot of non-work related internet use during working hours. The whole plant has a low morale and no one seems to be willing to help another employee that needs it. However everyone is more than willing to help "throw someone under the bus".

    Advice to Management

    Replace the current management of this facility that has been here since January 1, 2012. Our plant manager and hr manager have already left in the last year and we just need to replace the rest of them, especially the operations manager. Most employees agree that he has been the main source of our morale problems. I invite the CEO and VP of human resources to show up someday unanounced and take a look around and remove these so called managers in front of everyone. That would be the best morale booster we could possibly have.
