Pros

Waterjet is a great technology and has a great potential for many applications. Flow is the leading company in the waterjet technology.

Cons

Compensations and benefits are not competitive by the market standards. As many other companies, it is in cost saving mode and gives very small vacation hours.

Advice to Management

We need to keep talented people and bring more. To the end please compensate talented employees better and restore vacation hours.

    I have been working at Flow International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company is positioned for incredible growth. New leadership is focused on creating a dynamic company within the SHAPE Technologies group ensuring leadership within the waterjet manufacturing arena!

    Cons

    There are some personalities here that are not accepting of change or future vision. The rumor mill is inaccurate and very strong. Better communication from leadership will help.

    Advice to Management

    Better Communication and roadmap for future

    - Great location with decent parking (Kent, WA)
    - Flow is at the forefront of waterjet technology and growing globally
    - The company will no doubt flourish if/when it goes public
    - Impeccable safety record
    - Well-known, established reputation in the waterjet technology realm

    Cons

    - Disconnect between leadership and front-line staff
    - Lack of communication leads to rumors
    - High turnover makes it difficult to identify and remedy cultural inconsistencies
    - Severe lack of diversity

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees. Be transparent and proactive about change, rather than reactive and dismissive. Focus on hiring and retaining strong HR and Management team that is able to connect with employees, rather than just "put out fires". There is a wealth of knowledge, both product and culture, in employees that have worked with Flow for years.
