    I have been working at Gardner Denver full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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!

    I worked at Gardner Denver full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit 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.

    I have been working at Gardner Denver full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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.

    I worked at Gardner Denver full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

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