    I have been working at Grundfos Pumps full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salary with above average medical benefits. Recently added small dental and vision coverage. Normal work schedule and paid vacation. Very good educational assistance for schooling and training related to core business. Was a very family friendly with good focus work life balance before new management. Management based 6 core values and 5 leadership principles.

    Cons

    Management no longer practicing what they have preached for so many years. When sales slowed, the values disappeared. The company has not handled their growth rate as well as in the past. Some benefits have been reduced, like vacation for long term employees. Growth pains have been painful. Upper management headquartered in Chicago where none of the other Grundfos US holdings are?

    Advice to Management

    Remember how the wonderful people that work for you have given a lot of themselves for your success. They don't feel appreciated like they used to.

    "Interviewed with company"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Naperville, IL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Naperville, IL

    I worked at Grundfos Pumps full-time

    Pros

    Fast to respond to applying for open position

    Cons

    Took 3 weeks to hear back from HR on candidacy and then given excuse as to why I was not going to next steps. "Other people schedules could not be coordinated and to much time between interview"....However, position has been reposted and I cannot reapply, as "you've already applied for this position." Seems to be standard way for European companies to work in the USA...

    Advice to Management

    Get a hold on your USA HR departments to ensure they are interviewing the right candidates you require to move your USA business forward

    Pros

    Not too many. Company is going downhill and every attempt to improve makes it worse.

    Cons

    Company is led by folks in Denmark with little business experience outside their small environment. They believe that only Danish opinions matter, even when presented with management and marketing data that shows their methods to be prone to failure. They will sell you being a "great place to work" and "caring about people" but then fire people for having opinions that differ from leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that the narrow, provincial view of Danish engineers is not a successful recipe for running an international company.
