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

Pros

Good benefits include full health coverage, healthy and safe work environment, and very manageable working hours (7:30-4:00 most days).

Cons

The position I'm currently in has a high turnover rate. Either you are promoted with 2-3 years or you move on to another company. Often times, our customers will hire engineers and pay higher salaries, Flowserve will not match. It seems as if the position is replaceable, which is understandable from a business stand point, but doesn't sit well with employees.

Advice to Management

Always keep the bigger picture in perspective. 99% of Application Engineers DO NOT see themselves in this position more than 2-3 years down the road. Work with engineers to understand how they want to grow and where they can move up in the company.
