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

    Pros

    Small-business feel - great coworkers, decent salary, good benefits. Hospitable work environment, great work schedule with no weekends or after-hours shifts, and minimal required overtime.

    Cons

    Unstable management - continuously changing key players with upheaval in strategy and philosophy. Created a consistent atmosphere of insecurity. Witnessed some situations of favoritism and unfair treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Would be a great place to work if the management would remain in place long enough to establish stability to the company and stability, security, and positivity to the workers.

    I worked at IDEX full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decentralized management structure and not afraid of investing in resources to get the job done. Good healthcare package and return on stocks.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring so you never know from one day to the next if they're going to fire 10 people or so. It didn't seem to matter where in the organization you were they'd cut people loose. The company was restructured 2 or 3 times my last year there. Merit increases went anywhere from 1% to 3% depending on what mood they were in. There are almost no employees in the office with more than 10 years experience. Most fall into the 5-7 year window and then you have a few with 20+ years but nothing in between. The last 3 years we had stopped developing any new products. We were finishing up things that had started but nothing new was in the works. Everything engineering was doing feasibility studies on over the last 2 years was killed at the first management review. Doesn't seem to follow the IDEX motto of innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Spend the time and money to develop your people. When I started it was a fun place to work but over time the policies that were enacted sucked the motivation out of everybody that I worked closely with.

    Pros

    It's a profitable company with a decentralized business model. If you can be ok with not working in a high performance team then this is a company you will want to work with and retire

    Cons

    Poor leadership, prioritizes friendliness over business. Afraid of taking action and making changes. Deals with poor performers by promoting them to a safe place and leaving the rest of the team to carry the extra load of those decisions on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of taking action. Listen to the team that knows the details and make a decision, don't be afraid of change

    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).

    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.

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

    Pros

    IDEX is a good company overall. The CEO is good (both Larry Kingsbury as well as Andy Silvernail). The benefits are about normal for a professional.

    Cons

    IDEX allows the local businesses to pretty much run themselves. So the high quality corporation can be undermined by bad local management policies. My experience at the West Jordan facility was high turnover of general managers which caused a lot of problems. Then the last general manager was terrible. He was young, combative, arrogant, and disrespectful of the employees. There are about 35 people working at the West Jordan plant and from the time this general manager started to when I left, 12 other people had left.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and then keep quality local management. Give opportunities to grow at local levels, not just by moving to different divisions.
