Flowserve has its ups and downs just like any other company. But one thing that they lack is room for further advancement within the facility. It seems that once you reach a certain level you hit a plateau.
Longevity, Strong customer focus, Good environment
Stressful job, highly demanding. Management is hardworking but demanding Co-workers are great Corporate experience leaves a lot to be desired They promise raises but do not provide them limited bonuses

Management does not know how to make a part picks friends and gives them the royal treatment and the harder you work the more they expect. Management makes a wrong decision you get screwed with it and can't wait to find a new job
Manager (Former Employee) – Moosic, PA – September 22, 2016
Job cuts announced two weeks after you start. Your boss asking after three weeks if you can old job back because no one knows what's going on. 6 weeks on the job your travel budget gets cut to zero, they announce a 12 month salary freeze and what you were hired to do is completely changed. Company is moving out of established markets (US, Canada, Europe) and moving jobs to lower cost areas.
The hours, pay, compensation were great. My directs and co-workers were great. I typically didn't take a lunch or breaks because i was so busy.
A lot of people have left or have been let go that were great assets to the company. Unfortunately there are two executives that have remained and I'm not sure what the plan is but it has caused dissension which never had a good outcome
SHEA Coordinator/Mfg Admin Assist (Former Employee) – Springville, UT – September 12, 2016
Management changed throughout the years, and so did the work environment. I enjoyed document control/document entry, and clerical duties. I enjoyed working with my coworkers, and I enjoyed working with the public.
I was over melting and pouring of castings in foundry. we had 60,000 patterns and poured 140 alloys. I made sure procedures were being followed. Worked with melters and pour-off operators on resolving problems. I learned a lot on trouble shooting alloy problems. There were many co-workers that were good to work with. The hardest part of the job was resolving alloy casting defects.

Allot of opportunities for younger workers willing to relocate and advance thru multiple divisions. Large corporation with many layers of ISO procedures, and who you know within the company aides in getting the job done.

a typical day at my job involves me making 3 to 4 parts a day. It's and every day learning experience because you never know when you might get a different challenge that you have never faced before. Management is ok i believe it could be way better. my co-workers are great people to be around we do our best to treat each other like family and keep each other safe.

Duriron used to be a fun place to work with a lot of nice people, but when FlowServe took over the company, that all changed. The benefits weren't as good, a lot of people were leaving, and the majority of management didn't care what happened to us here in the Dayton, Ohio area. The company used to have over 400 people, but it was down to 80 because the company no longer cared about this division. I was there over 25+ years and they wouldn't even give 5 people who had over 25+ years (out of the 80 left) a bridge to retirement for 30 years. I have very little good things to say about the company. This is what happens when a company takes over, they no longer care about the old company or people.
The good friends that worked at the company in Dayton, Ohio.
