    I worked at Gardner Denver as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Global reach, industry leader, great mission statement

    Cons

    Corporate culture is a "good old boy" network. Extremely top-down flow of information. Disregard for the needs of workers is endemic to the corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow information to flow freely in all directions - up, down, and laterally. This will spark innovation and reduce talent loss.

    I have been working at Gardner Denver full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, and growth opportunities are good and there are opportunities to contribute in a meaningful way. This is a brand new office in a cool area (3rd Ward) of town so there is quite a lot of bars and restaurants close to the office. the company is paying for my parking too.

    Cons

    New office, so policies and procedures are still being developed. There has been quite a bit of construction, so the environment has been somewhat disruptive and congested, but that seems to be getting better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication about how the different businesses are doing.

    GD offers many learning opportunities, great benefits including medical, optical and dental insurances, 401-K, and vacation. They are very supportive of family and aware of your life outside of employment.

    As GD is a global company, you have to be willing to work with International Divisions and Companies within all aspects of employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow your employees. You are doing a great job!
