    Not For People of Color

    Human Resources (Former Employee) Wayne, PA (US)

    ProsGreat co-workers. Everyone is willing to share information and help one another.

    ConsIf your a person of color there is very little opportunity for advancement. This is a white male dominated environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecruit at minority job fairs, have more minorities in senior positions, and have more respect for your current employees. Do not be intimidated by diversity, but embrace it. Get rid of the good ole boys and bring in people with more forward thinking. Stop hiring and promoting based on looks.

    Gardner Denver, Sedalia, MO, provides great opportunities to contribute to a production environment and gain experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sedalia, MO (US)

    ProsThe people are reasonable. There are very few "difficult" people. Everyone that works hard, and keeps a cool head is honored and offered promotional opportunity as they arise.

    ConsLocation. Although Sedalia has most of what anyone could need, people who like living in large cities might not be used to it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. Be sure to take notice of those whose work generally goes unnoticed. Small recognition goes a long way here. Empowering people to take charge of their responsibilities without micro management is a real strength here.

    Could have been better.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA good training ground to put to use in a future job with their competitors.

    ConsLack of progressive career opportunities available for most. If you are favored, then the sky is the limit. Seem to take it personally when someone leaves - especially senior management. Lack support of the average worker to grow them to be better employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFront line workers are your bread and butter. Treat them better. Don't continue to treat people as if they don't matter.
