Ever changing
International Sales and Marketing Manager, LSC (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 1, 2017
My last experience with Colfax was working for an acquisition in the O&G segment. They were not committed to local talent in Houston and as a result, lost some very good talent. They have since moved operations to Charlotte NC, not the center of the O&G community.

Minimal work life balance and micromanage
Talent Acquisition Specialist (Current Employee) –  Monroe, NCFebruary 21, 2017
Minimal work life balance and upper management micro-manages. The location is in Monroe, NC which is a long drive from Fort Mill. The Director of HR is a micro-manager.

Dumpster fire!!
Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Long Beach, CAAugust 16, 2016
Got hired on to do "maintenance" and all I seem to do here is scrap sludge from a container. They assigned this guy to "run the building" with no management expirence. The real manager sits in an office in San Diego. They also get people to agree to this loan shark deal they have. You onboard sign a paper that says they give you 300 perdiem but when you leave they take it out of your last check. You work in absolute filth, your going to be skating around due to slippery floors. DONT WORK HERE!!! This place has a high turn over rate for a reason!!!
Pros
I get to go home
Cons
Pay, work environment, lack of management

Interesting job, Chaotic management
Head slave (Former Employee) –  Canton, OHJuly 18, 2016
A neat job if you are in the field. You can travel the country but say goodbye to home when business picks up. Not much advancement opportunity. You'll stall out unless you're in with a certain group of friends. Direct supervisors are clueless thanks to upper management.
Pros
Travel
Cons
Everything else.

Poor management
Technician (Former Employee) –  Kemah, TXJune 12, 2016
Good travel experience,
The worst management I've ever seen.

They only care about management and higher.
Everyone else is just a number.
Pros
Decent pay.
Cons
Horrible management

Tragedy waiting happen
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Monroe, NCJune 1, 2016
This company could be a thriving industry and from what i was told by senior employee's, it once was. They need to restructure this company and get rid of about 1/3 of the unnecessary management. The product line is fantastic and it is very sad to see a long time company like this slowly sink because of bad decisions.
Pros
Pay rate benefit package is decent
Cons
To many managers

Look elsewhere
Manager (Current Employee) –  Monroe, NCMarch 3, 2016
Used to be a great place to work. Amazing products and a culture of serving our customers. Sales down year-to-year due to macroeconomic issues. Continually hiring more SVPs while the knowledge base disappears with people who actually are getting the "work" done.
Pros
Good products, Good people
Cons
Changing management, Constant restructuring

Easy job. A lot of sitting around
Oil tech (Former Employee) –  Canton, OHFebruary 20, 2016
The company is a sinking ship. They just laid off a lot of people on 02/19/2016 because there was no work. People running TLM have no clue what they are doing. They've been closing shops from Michigan to Maine and California shops.
Pros
A lot of down time. Cool people to work with
Cons
Bad management. Management has favorites that work a lot, everyone else is there as back up's

Growing Pains have lead to a management crisis
employee (Current Employee) –  Monroe, NCNovember 17, 2015
Corporate mentality is trying to take over an already divided plant of three different product lines. This causes management issues and prevents efficient productivity.

The 20+ veterans of the company have too much decision power regardless of seniority and when they don't get their way, rumors will begin and not be forgotten. This company was a profitable and stable decision but after recent stock drop, corporate has promised a second round of layoffs and this location quickly turned into a hostile work environment. Daily tasks get pushed downhill until they fall on an already lean workforce.

There will need to be a major shift in employees and strategy before I would consider working here again.
Pros
Decent benefits, decent pay.
Cons
Corporate and old business strategies clash.

An established company in trouble unless they can turn it around
Senior Designer (Former Employee) –  Monroe, NCNovember 15, 2015
Colfax Fluid Handling is a great company with a long established product line. Lately however, the scramble to make a change, any change, to normalize and rebound their falling stock prices have everyone from top to bottom nervous and suffering from low morale.

In their last round of layoffs there was no regard for performance, seniority, attendance, attitude and so on. There were individuals with 30 years experience in very specialized positions impacted just as new hires and newly inter-company transfers.

Currently, no one is safe, however, the company still has established customers who want Colfax product.

If the company would remove the blinders and concentrate on the big picture, not just the "metric of the day", this could again be a great place to work.

has the potential to be a great place to work, but lacks proper management
machinist (Current Employee) –  Monroe ncMay 14, 2015
Colfax is really a good company but the atmosphere here is really terrible unless you've been here 30 years or more. Management let's those employees have total reign over the plant. Other employees with less time here get bullied and really have no voice here at all. Was hoping new management would change the atmosphere here, but they are aware of the conditions and turn their heads. Really toxic and all employees with 20 years or less look at the pay and tolerate what we can. I do not see a future here.
Pros
great pay
Cons
bullied environment in which management fear the employees with 30 years or more
