Pros

Having worked at malvern of over a dozen years I have seen the company grow organicly and through acquisitions. While growing pains and challenges of integrating new personnel and technologies are to be expected, Malvern has done an excellent job in fostering an overall environment of teamwork and is generally very fair to its employees. Mr. Dutko is the President of American Operations is a very capable manager and team builder. I never had any trouble expressing any concerns to him and I think he truly welcomes interacting on a personal level with the entire organization, so he can know what problems people are having and how to keep the operation running smoothly. The company headquarters is in Malvern UK, a very pleasant town with a history of technical excellence dating back to the 1940's. UK management keeps a very worldwide view, is alert for new developments that fit its aggressive growth plans for high end, high tech, high quality material characterization. Generally the environment is demanding. Extra time and effort is required, is usually recognized, but perhaps not your next paycheck.

Cons

Some departments are not run as well as others. Some individual managers were not well suited for their positions but usually did not last long. You are generally expected to function in a team toward an overall end result. If your team doesn't function well, of if you don't function well in your team it will eventually lead to problems, and resolutions you may not like.

Advice to Management

I don't really have any advice to give at this point since it has been some time since I worked there.

    I worked at Malvern Instruments full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very good, hard working people in U.S. & UK.
    Company is a good stepping stone in one's career for a few years

    Cons

    Little chance of true career progression in U.S. office
    Senior management in U.S. poor
    Too many senior managers there too long & don't create opportunities for others
    All important strategic decisions are made in UK - US management are sales people with inflated titles

    Advice to Management

    Retire. Get out of the way - you are blocking the careers of people more talented than you. Another re-org is coming due to poor financial performance, yet no senior manager on either side of the ocean is ever held to account.
