Planner (Former Employee) –  Ames, IowaSeptember 26, 2017
The only reason I left was to be closer to where I lived. It is a great company to work for and I would suggest it to anyone. I enjoyed working with all levels of employees from production to management.

Fast paced
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Arkadelphia, ARSeptember 20, 2017
Not a guaranteed job. Lose hours when orders slow down. Temps are the first to lose hours or be laid off when work is slow. Good people to work with. Hours can be good if orders provide for it.
Pros
Hours when busy
Cons
Lack of hours when slow

I enjoyed developing the competency of the Supply Chain Team
Supply Chain Team Leader / Manager (Former Employee) –  Freeport, ILSeptember 11, 2017
The hardest part of the job was no clear direction from management, no shared accountability from the local management team, which made the day to day tasks challenging at best.
Pros
working close with the team, great people
Cons
lack of commincation

If you want a lot of hours, this is your place
Production Associate (Current Employee) –  Ames, IASeptember 7, 2017
always working extra hours because they are always behind on production. Usually have to work for a staffing company for 6-8 months minimum before Danfoss actually hires you on.
Cons
short breaks

Productive with competitive wages. Worked for a very humble CEO, which is the same attitude that resonated thru the company.
PRODUCTION ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Hopkinsville,KyJuly 6, 2017
I enjoyed working for the company. It has a family type of allure. Something that made the company great to work for are the quarterly bonuses it offered each associate. Candidates should expect to bear many titles included but not limited to machine operator, quality tech, and maintence tech.
Pros
Pay wages
Cons
Short breaks

Marketing (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJune 7, 2017
This is a nice company to work for - typical perks that are equivalent to government perks. Some divisions are revolving doors though and sometimes you don't always have job security. Overall a nice work culture that prides themselves on growing the individual.

Favoritism at its finest.
Part Time Assembler (Former Employee) –  Loves Park, ILApril 19, 2017
Danfoss has great benefits, but the supervisors picked favorites way too much. They favored the employees who worked for them directly and not through the temp agency. Also, all of the employees liked to be in each other's business and whenever anyone complained to upper management, they never did anything about it. Rumors were always going around about people. The employees were terrible as well.
Pros
Willing to work with schedule, Saturdays and Sundays off.
Cons
Favoritism

Continuous Improvement Technician (Rehired) (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMarch 28, 2017
Danfoss is a very well maintained work environment where there is very rarely a layoff. However the micro management is overbearing and little to no room for advancement.
Pros
Steady work, good benefits and job security
Cons
Micromanagement, little to no room for advancement.

New HR Management is a JOKE
Supply Chain (Current Employee) –  Loves Park, ILNovember 2, 2016
If you want to work for a company with terrible HR management, this is the company for you. New HR management is completely incompetent. In the 15 years that I have been with Danfoss, we have never had such a poorly represented unhelpful HR Department. Gone are the days of customer focus and employee support.
Pros
Nice Building
Cons
Awful confrontations HR Management
