    I worked at Flowserve full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are some great brands within the company, whereby some of that greatness still exists left over from these brands, specifically the people and the products.
    A great place to learn. There is some fantastic knowledge and experience within the company.
    Average pay, pension, etc.

    Cons

    Flowserve went around the world buying up the best in most pump/valve areas, so it is made up of some amazing brands. Unfortunately the corporation stripped this down piece by piece, largely for ill-conceived cost-saving measures. This has led to the corporation being a shell of it's former glory and the staff are left very disillusioned and disinterested.
    Staff are massively disengaged, due to closures, redundancies and cost cutting. Not the best company atmosphere.
    Typical corporate model, it's always about more and more profit, so quality and customer care suffers, which affects job satisfaction.
    Company has become too large, so is inefficient, cumbersome and slow to react.

    Advice to Management

    To corporate management:
    If you do not change the company from being totally profit and shareholder focussed, to being more customer and service focussed, Flowserve will not survive as a company.

    Pros

    Good company to work for with reasonably high staff morale, training offered if you ask for it and the Haywards Heath office is nicely laid out

    Cons

    Huge pay cap between staff and managers and the management team live in the dark ages and allocate promotion using the "mates" network

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff feedback and take this on board

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

    Pros

    Very nice atmosphere. Friendly staff and flexible work style. Training provided and the pay is good

    Cons

    When there isn't work, everything grinds to a halt. Sometimes, the tension gets too much but I suppose it's in every company

    Advice to Management

    I really can't think of any at the moment but I think the planning process needs a bit more effort invested into it to prevent last minute decisions
