    I have been working at Flowserve full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Local managment is responsive to employees. Safety is a priority at all Flowserve facilities.

    Cons

    Merit pay increases are meager, often not even keeping up with cost-of-living even for high-performing employees. Incentive bonuses have been delayed for two of the past three years.

    Advice to Management

    Employee development and superior performance should be rewarded, else employees will begin to look elsewhere for employment opportunities.

    I have been working at Flowserve full-time

    Pros

    This company places a high value on training and technical knowledge for employees that do technical work. Most managers are very reasonable about work/life balance. When the company does well, the AIP payouts can be very generous. 401k matching.

    Cons

    Poor benefits packages. The company has been struggling for the last couple years, has had to reduce the workforce, has forced employees to take vacation to increase their year end numbers, and the AIP payout for most groups has been very small or non-existent. Salaries in general seem to be much lower than similar engineering jobs.

    Pros

    Decent wage and training opportunities that involved traveling across the country to different locations. An annual performance based bonus based on the company's metrics being met or not.

    Cons

    Not that much room for advancement. Domestic locations few and far between. Repetitive nature of work that gets boring and mundane after a while.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time and money into your employees and provide areas of promotion to keep the younger generation involved.
