    I have been working at SPX (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company does a great job of being actively involved in the community and events like Kansas City Corporate Challenge, Chili-Cookoffs, Blood Drives, Golf Tournaments, etc. There are numerous fundraisers and events that take place for people to be involved in outside of typical job responsibilities. 401K, benefits and company holidays are all very competitive and the company provides opportunities for training and tuition reimbursement. You are expected to work hard but work/life balance is good and top performers are typically rewarded accordingly.

    Cons

    Company was part of a spin-off in 2015 so the size of the organization decreased in that time, but it had little overall effect on each individual location.

    I worked at SPX as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People on your team work hard and still have fun. Salary was good and great experience for engineers. Exposure to a lot of software and different fields of engineering.

    Cons

    Have to work hard and sometimes it's really hot outside. Setting up some of the flow testing can be a pain and get you a little soaked.
