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

    Pros

    Can't think of any other than the best department in the whole company is the Global team. They are the most professional team in the company.

    Cons

    Turnover rate is extremely high. No communication across the company which leads to lots of disappointment with customers. Do not believe your job description, that will not be what you will end up doing. They say they want change and want to improve, but I have faced all sorts of resistance. The culture in my department is awful. Its extremely unprofessional. I would highly recommend that you look at other companies to work for. If you disagree with management, your on the blacklist. Certain managers are known for being career enders. I have seen that to be true. Management talks bad about people even their own employees. This is the worst job and culture I have ever worked in. Another thing, the building is so outdated. Walking in the doors sound like your entering a jail house door. They are always having sewage problems which leaves employees without restrooms and stinks up the whole building. They still use old AS400 systems, completely outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Take leadership classes. Create a positive environment. Stop speaking negatively about employees, it always makes its rounds. I have heard them in meeting talking down about other employees.

    I worked at Gilbarco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -cafeteria serves decent food
    -people are friendly when they aren't working from a CYA mindset from leadership
    -benefits and comp are decent (middle of the road)

    Cons

    -everyone blames everyone else. no one takes accountability and management doesn't hold anyone accountable
    -everyone is miserable and loves to tell you about how miserable they are. this only makes those who aren't miserable miserable
    -leadership refuses to change their mindset. the business isn't level set, people work 11 hours a day, no stability, probably a layoff coming after EMV but they only want heads now
    -large amounts of turnover without management doing anything about it
    -shady practices from all corners of the org. leadership is so silo-ed everything is a rumor
    -don't live their core values

    Advice to Management

    treat people better. don't blame, rather find opportunities to do it different next time. Don't berate team members in public. Say thank you when people do a good job. really simple things go a long way

    Pros

    Heath benefits start day one, as well as vacation.

    Too much work for one person. Favoritism among managers and certain employees. Lack of backup, causing people to not be able to vacation. Extremely long hours at month end so no time for family. Weekend and holiday work required for most accounting staff.

    Pros

    Great company that invests in its employees.

    Cons

    Things move, but they move slowly. At the end of the day, it's a 150 year old company. There's going to be some red tape to get through.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are awesome. No complaints.

    There's so much to learn and it's good for recent graduates and there are opportunities to move to different departments

    Positive people who are genuinely fun to work with on a day to day basis. Autonomy to work and make decisions on your own.

    Constant drive for results. Very little recognition of successes when they happen and those who do a good job tend to become over replied upon.
