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

    Pros

    IDEX is a large organization that is lean enough to give you the opportunity to try new things and develop new skills. The leadership is very invested in the people and there are great development programs and you are surrounded by smart people. There are opportunities to work on global projects and with different teams. The company is growing and investing in new technology.

    Cons

    There should be more communication from leadership to the rest of the businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time on communication.

    Pros

    Great people! Decentralized model allows business to grow and evolve without being prescriptive. Utah is know for developing talent and IDEX has promoted from this location on a regular basis. This has created a career path for employees willing to put in the extra effort (opportunity is what you make it). The majority of employees want to win as a team!

    Cons

    Location has big swings in demand, and some fear for their job when sales slow down. Management turn-over has slowed momentum and progress.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to find ways to grow while creating improved stability (less management changes in short time frames).

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

    Pros

    - IDEX Corporation is a great company with strong values that invests a lot in employees, training, and our prosperity
    - Senior Staff members know that while the bottom line is important, fostering and enhancing talent is also imperative
    - Two weeks vacation plus holiday shutdown
    - CEO seems like a great guy- very humble and approachable

    Cons

    - Lake Forest isn't the most exciting area and a sort of long commute for younger employees who want to live in the city
    - At the corporate office it's rather quiet and reserved

    I have been working at IDEX full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ethical - with "ethics hotline" and a no retaliation policy for whistleblowers
    Salary - Above average with annual merit increases and bonuses
    Training - supervisors & managers (Supervisory, Management, Leadership Excellence Programs)
    Rapid promotion - for individuals that can perform
    Accountability - employees are judged on both results and behavior in performance reviews
    Morale - employee engagement surveys are taken 2x per year, and managers are given engagement improvement goals. Not saying its always good, but there is desire to improve.
    Non political environment - as much as a company can be ...

    Cons

    High turnover - Culling of individuals that don't "cut the muster" is ruthless and frequent.
    Top-down goals - Monetary goals are assigned somewhat arbitrarily, and can sometimes compromise the long-term health of individual companies.

    Advice to Management

    The biggest downside to working at IDEX is job security. Rather than dismissing employees that don't perform, see if you can move them to another capacity where they can.
    Negotiate (rather than dictate) goals.

    "A wealth of knowledge and experience, but there is a lack of communication"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Rohnert Park, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Rohnert Park, CA

    Pros

    Working at IDEX Health & Science has been a great experience. The people, the knowledge, and the technology has been very good, and the spirit and attitude that most of employees have is great. Most everyone's attitude is great.

    Cons

    The communication breakdown is difficult to deal with both between departments and management. The tribal knowledge is a bit strenuous but it is getting better. Dealing with management as far as bettering one's self, is tough!

    Advice to Management

    Better communication for employees in regards to planning of yearly goals. Improve incentive/rewards for employees. Improve communication and duties between departments, to give a better understanding of how departments work together and what the end results should or could be.
