    I worked at Sulzer full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Kind people, very multicultural. - Relaxed work environment. - Some employee perks like golfing trips, etc. - Historically a willingness to promote talent. - Opportunities to travel for work.

    Cons

        Good benefits , double time on Sundays and triples time of holidays

        Cons

        No Encouragement for growth or move around the company to learn other trades, once you get stuck in a position that's gonna be your position for the remainder of your time here. Mandatory to work 7 days including holidays . People that been here for over ten years are miserable.

        Advice to Management

        Allow workers to learn other trades and give schedules days off

        I have been working at Sulzer full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        The people at Sulzer professional, courteous, and the atmosphere Is welcoming. The benefits are in the middle. We have a HDHP and we used have a PPO, from what I understand this is becoming more common. The pay is also in the middle of the scale.

        Cons

        The company, like many has many acquisitions over the years, but they do not integrate those companies, as a result operations are very segmented. This can sometimes be very challenging and off-putting.

        Advice to Management

        Hire from within and promote those who deliver.
