    I have been working at Gilbarco full-time

    Pros

    Sink or swim mentality throughout company. If you want opportunity, you have every chance to go out and get it.

    Cons

    Chaotic environment with a very strong focus on company wide driven metrics that do no align with job roles. Performance reviews are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Pivot to a system that drives quality product rather than profit margin and OTD before a 3rd party comes in and puts the company to shame.

    Pros

    Great benefits and deceit pay

    Cons

    terrible work load, be prepared to work nights and weekends if in finance. be prepared to throw your degree out the window as the new system will cause you to be a data entry clerk.

    Advice to Management

    High temps for data entry, give employees better quality work, treat employees better and realize that they shouldn't have to work 6-7 days a week.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, interesting/entertaining people, projects that have real effects, mobility in full-time positions, activities outside of work, intern proximity to upper management through 'Lunch & Learns'

    Lack of efficiency/industry best practices (this is being rectified), reliance on hardware setups that get delayed, individual rather than group projects could lead to isolation

    Pros

    Down-to-earth people and good environment. Management is generally nice and respectful of employees. Benefits include 401k matching, life, dental, medical, eye insurance. There is racial diversity in management and among employees.

    Cons

    Pay is little low from national average. The processes and systems are archaic. Gilbarco could use better IT support. Only two weeks paid vacation when first starting with 9 paid holidays (non-union), one week of sick pay, and 3 float days. For Union Employees, Gilbarco tends to work them long hours (which for some maybe good for the increase in their paychecks), but wears down the workers and effects quality in the products. Typically Gilbarco will lay off the union workers first of every year, so it is difficult for families to survive. The whole factory is air conditioned and heated. It is still factory work with all the dust and dirt. Certain jobs are repetitious and boring.

    Advice to Management

    Try to bring pay up to at least national average. Update the processes and systems used. Try to level the work load, so people don't have to work so many hours during the busy seasons, or be laid off in the slow times.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits and co-workers were very helpful

    Cons

    Immediate manager lacked knowledge to support me in some of the company specific processes and penalized me for not knowing by putting me on a performance plan, continuing to offer no help or allowing me to reach out for help, and ultimately firing me.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on supporting the laymen by means of training in areas of need or allowing them to reach out to team. Acknowledge hard working and willing employees by supporting them to be successful.

    I worked at Gilbarco full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, employee activities, good pay

    Cons

    Too often management plays favorites and makes decisions based off politics instead of treating people fairly according to their work. In my time there, I saw a lot of good people run screaming from the building (literally) and the turnover continues to reflect to weakness in leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Reward hardworking, intelligent people, lead by positive example, communicate effectively, and don't play the blame game.
