awesome company I,ve ever worked for
Account Payable Dept. Clerk (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 4, 2015
Pros: Amazing Firm to have worked for
Cons: when the company sold
Started at DLJ as a mail clerk & quickly advanced to a sprvsr position within the company. Soon there after, I was offered a position with the Accounts Payable Dept. within the company as well. The professional work environment & caring people made me look forward to going to work everyday knowing that my day was going to be a wonderful day. When the company sold to Credit Suisse, a big part of me left with the DLJ, but I will always credit them for everything that I have learned throughout my work years with the company.

Work alone
Operator (Current Employee), Auburn, ALMay 21, 2015
Pros: They have the best healthcare benefits
Cons: poor management
You have the ability to work at your on paste. No one ever breaths down your back. It's a very hot plant but you are pretty much to yourself. They have monthly meetings to keep us informed on the lastest news. However, we need more management that knows the actual jobs on the floor instead of the paperwork.

Pros: good money
Cons: short breaks, expensive insurance, few vacation days. A lot of line break downs

Clean work area and very productive place
Funnel Setter (Former Employee), Frankfort, INApril 22, 2015
Pros: Free meal after no accidents in the work place, paid lunch
Cons: healthcare, short breaks, no stability
I work in an area of 4 people in this area, one is running the machine, I am with the other 3 and we exchange our job every hour: one person cuts and glues the paper, one uses seam sealer to seal the glue to the paper and the other funnels the paper into the metal part of the filter. The hardest part of the job is funneling the paper into the metal part, cause there is a technique to getting it to pop up and as its popped up to slide it off the table and into the metal part of the filter. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people, the job itself and the hours. My boss was the best, when things were rough on the job he would still have a sweet personality toward my co-workers and myself

Donaldson Sales
APPLICATION AND ENGINEERING SALES CONSULTANT (Former Employee), Mid-AtlanticApril 14, 2015
Donaldson is a great company with great people is outside sales roles. Listen to the senior sales people and you will learn faster than you can imagine. They will also give you fantastic insights into how they sell (which is a very confusing way to go to market) but it WORKS. Upper management likes to shuffle people around.

Has been going downhill in the past five years
OEM Account Manager (Former Employee), Bloomington, MNApril 8, 2015
not focused on customers. Management more concerned about moving the wrong people into middle management. Directors do not stay long enough to see strategies through.

Co-workers work hard and were the best part of coming into work.
