    I worked at Roper Technologies as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on your understanding and how hard you work, the engineers allow you to take on responsibilities that truly prepare you for a real world engineering position.

    Cons

    The only con when I worked there was that there was a high turnover rate for employees in all parts of the company. I disliked this only because it did not allow enough time to build good relationships with people.

    Advice to Management

    The advice I would give to management would be to expand the intern program. When I first arrived there, I was informed that the Roper company I was working for had never had an intern.

    Pros

    Have competitive benefits and compensation packages. Have meetings quarterly to review YTD results. Progress is tracked and available for sales managers.

    Cons

    Poor communication back to employees. Employees reveiws are not always completed. Lack focus on key issues and are not open with employer

    Advice to Management

    You need to engage shop personnel more and check out reports of issues. Listen to the people that see this on a daily basis.

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

    Pros

    The Energy Services and Controls group in Houston has nice facilities and a good HR team. The work environment was pleasant, but one can chalk that up to Houston culture.

    Cons

    High turnover & a disconnect between management and staff. Roper was good at driving quality people away. Didn't see much of our outrageous operating profit invested back in the business.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe hoarding cash isn't the best way to increase shareholder value. CEO Jellison should restructure his V level compensation structures to incentive management to have a stake in knowing about their businesses, not just regurgitating accounting ratios.

    Pros

    Well managed financially, fairly nimble in responding to sales opportunities, benefits and vacation were competitive, open to people with different professional backgrounds, low corporate bureaucracy.

    Cons

    There is essentially no way to think long term or strategically in a smaller Roper company because short term financial metrics predominate over longer term strategic considerations, what strategy we did have was disconnected from operational capabilities and not communicated to employees, management culture was secretive and reactive, job descriptions and org charts were either undocumented or kept secret from employees, org charts had bizarre reporting relationships and spans of control which hampered execution, no performance feedback was provided to employees .

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to shutdown or divest companies from your portfolio if they don't fit with your portfolio requirements. Transparency regarding strategy and health of the business is particularly important in lean organizations where it is critical that all effort is aligned with strategic goals. Insist that your GMs explain how they will accomplish their plans, not just what they desire to accomplish in sales. You cannot argue with Roper financial performance, but some of your companies could be better managed, sold off or shut down to improve it even further.

    Some of the leadership and management in those companies is exceptional poor and indecisive. There is no career structure within thee group of companies. Poor benefits
