I have been working at Gardner Denver

Pros

It was well known that GDT was a leader in its field and has been a nice place to work over the years. The workforce has historically been very, very stable. That showed that GDT was indeed a good place to work. Management gave employees support in medical emergencies.

Cons

No employee wellness program to speak of. Also, there was no formal training programs until recently.

Advice to Management

Training programs for sales personnel and for mid-level and upper management would benefit the company.I would also establish an employee wellness program.

    Pros

    It was nice place to work

    Cons

    Worked there 1 year, got axed even though there were 25 people hired after me. People were being trained for my position, and then I was told my position was being eliminated. I believe I was a threat to the manager above me. No respect for loyalty, hard work or quality. Was told it was not a layoff because we don't have a call back. No seniority !!!

    Advice to Management

    Hire more skilled managers. The unskilled ones who deem good knowledgeable workers as a threat only cost the company money and time. The example of me being axed will send fear into other employees in the shop killing all loyalty and possibly production. All employees like a little security. This action sends the message no one is safe.
