    Pros

    Strong product portfolio with good reputation in the market.

    Cons

    Management is very top-heavy, old-boy network. Corporate has far to many layers of management, especially HR.

    Advice to Management

    Implement lean management concepts and flatten the organization.

    I have been working at Flowserve full-time

    Pros

    I learned a lot at Flowserve. When the company was good, it was really good. But when the company was bad, it was REALLY bad. You can wear jeans everyday, summer work hours throughout the entire year, free soda, great benefits, pension plan, winter break. The perfect company on paper.

    Cons

    The layoffs and employee morale. Imagine not knowing if you're going to have a job or not. Watching co-workers being walked out of the office? Seeing names disappearing from the front of offices? This is what's happening at Flowserve. None of those perks are worth it when you don't even know how long they're going to last. I wouldn't recommend.

  3. "Good Company overall"

    Pros

    Pay is good, benefits are good.

    Cons

    Insane leadership turnover. Large percentage of employees and leadership have left the company. Flowserve does NOT care about their employees. Flowserve is doing their best during a bad market but focus on employees is zero.

    Pros

    Little to no change in the organization if you appreciate an organization that promotes becoming a stale, uninspired place to work.

    Cons

    Sinking ship with no management to guide the company. No concern for the promotion or betterment of the employees. Treat current employees as if opinions do not matter.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees. They are what actually keeps you in business.

    Pros

    Benefits are great and pay is at top tier. Raises and bonuses are a nice perk along with the pension.

    Cons

    Management is stuck in their ways. Very little room for growth unless you're friends with them. Company no longer cares about employees or their contributions. The company would rather send jobs overseas then keep the knowledge of current employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They are your best asset.
