    I have been working at Chart Industries full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Stable company for growth in most of the business units. Global manufacturing presence to help expand products and stability in most markets. Buys up the competition, good technology and quality of product, dedicated and satisfied customers.

    Cons

    Runs with big internal systems but too many non value added processes and people bring it down. Lacking cohesive effort between departments. Under compensated and under valued for all the hours that are required to be worked for most dedicated salary people. Long term vision in some areas is poor, bad business decisions are paid for by lay-offs and closings.

    Pros

    Chart has been on an expansion track for year and seems well positioned for the future.

    Cons

    Manufacturing managers tend to micro manage instead of letting their qualified people do what they are best at. Get in the "Good Old Boys Club" you could have a job for life. If you don't like playing politics you may not like it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the favoritism by management. Keep the best qualified.

    I have been working at Chart Industries full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Constantly changing to make it a great place to work. Very employee oriented. Really care about their employees and their safety. Trying to be socially responsible and eliminate waste and hazards. Likes to have fun give back to the community and give employees a balanced life. They really listen. I work in Tulsa but have met lots of employees in Chart and they are so nice.

    Cons

    We work in a plant environment that is open to the weather elements and dust but in the last two years it has greatly improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your employees and engaging them in decisions

    I worked at Chart Industries full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company has good equipment and talented, experienced engineers. The work is steady and in a growing field. Quality System is excellent. Good integration with local college to bring in welders.

    Cons

    In some areas, the union presence drags down the company's potential. Management does not understand how to deal with these people so those who care eventally ask, "why bother"?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent in your approach with methods of change and hold supervisors accountable.

    I have been working at Chart Industries full-time

    Pros

    You are challenged in your position. The company has a solid strategic direction. Pay is market for the region/location. Great people. Strong leadership.

    Cons

    The company is broken out into three divisions and often times each business will act as a silo versus reaching out to understand how things are done across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key to aligning employees and more communication is necessary.
