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

    Pros

    Friendly workforce, hardworking and smart. Many long-timers, some in excess of 30 years. Training available for those who want it. A relaxed dress culture with some flexibility on how/when you put in your hours.

    Cons

    Always looking to cut costs (of course). Closing manufacturing plants, so prospects may be limited for some locations. Lacking in diversity. Tied closely to Oil&Gas, so expect business (and your compensation) to follow this cyclical market.

    Advice to Management

    Some changes are expected with new CEO Scott. He needs to eliminate the "silo" mentality and get all business units working together. Good-ol-boy culture finds it hard to think outside of the box. Continue current effort to reach out to minority groups ex-military, women, etc.

    Pros

    Shop is climate controlled is the only pro!

    Cons

    The management could care less about the employees. The Tulsa facility is ran horrible they want you to rush thru everything. Everything is based of efficiency. The times they give you to do is unreal. They use that to give a crappy raise if you even get one.​ Then they wonder why parts are wrong. First it's efficiency then quality then safety. They act like it's the other way around. Everyone tells on every one. Even the word Christmas offends people. Only way to move up is kiss butt. They also have no hr so management can do what they want! You may be on 40 hours all week then all of a sudden mandatory ot planning sucks! Worst place I have ever worked!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better! Quit rushing maybe there would be less ncmrs. Pay them the money they are worth. Not like people with no experience!

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

    Pros

    A steady pay check and the company has a pension plan. Rare nowadays.

    Cons

    You will most likely not get your 5 percent bonus. And whatever your starting pay is will all you get. Not even a cost of living raise. And they don't like to train people.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and they will take care of you. Stop putting un experienced disrespectful "boys" in lead positions. Pasadena QRC pump division. Perhaps look at resumes for more qualified candidates and stop the favoritism.
