Great people to work with, a real family
Senior Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee), Spokane, WAJuly 8, 2015
FLSmidth is a world wide organization so it is a little out of touch with its individual company holdings. There is a bit too much management that is not really aware of what those who produce are doing. Otherwise, it is a great place to work because the people are really great.

Productive place with new organization in place
Project Manager (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UtahMay 20, 2015
Pros: Many organizations
Cons: Nobody knows where the company is going
Great company for the mining world with many managment changes in the past 4 years, creating a difficult place to grow. The company owns different divisions for the cement and mineral industry. They create new departments giving them a short time to grow. Overall, FLSmidth is a good company to work for it. They paid well and their benefits are good.

Good place to work
Structural Engineer (Former Employee), Spokane, WAApril 21, 2015
Pros: Challenging work
Cons: Lack of qualified people
Work is interesting. Mgmt blew it with respect to understanding the market demand for its products. Layoffs have hurt as mgmt has sent work to India at $16/hr vs $90/hr in the USA. Quality is poor and turn around is slow.

Uncertain times
Mech Engineer (Former Employee), Spokane, WAFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: team environment
Cons: mining industry in a slow period therefore job security is uncertain
Good group of people to work with. Need better project managers to keep projects on schedule and within budget. Slow down in the mining industry has caused work force reductions and job uncertainty going forward.

super poor management
Laboratory Technician (OCPM) (Former Employee), Midvale, UTFebruary 16, 2014
Pros: state of the art facility
Cons: certain managers
I was really happy whenI started working in the Lab because it is a state of the art facility with new equipment and wonderful lab technicians. The problem I had was with management. Not all the management but a select few. They were bully's that threatened our jobs if we complained about abusive work conditions. Some of the managers should not be allowed to work with people. We were not allowed to take breaks or socialize with each other. We all had a negative feeling about his place and the turnover was incredibly high. This was all overlooked by the directors of the facility and i feel that they should have done a better job protecting the employees.

Many great people, fast paced, beautiful environment and office
Head Receptionist (Former Employee), Midvale, UTJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: wonderful lunch room, beautiful surroundings, good pay and benefits
Cons: high stress, issues with management who were stressed, few breaks if any.
A typical day at FLSmidth started with opening the front office, turning on machines and preparing for the flood of calls and visitors. I would be swamped with phone calls and visitors from 8am till 4:30pm. Both calls and visitors would come in waves through-out the day.
My co-workers were wonderful to work with. the Management was often over-worked and out of reach unless they needed to communicate with you.
The hardest part of my job was getting people to relieve me at the front desk. It was a high pressure position and most admins were less then excited about helping out there.
The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting people from all over the world and learning about their cultures. It was fascinating and I loved the people that I met.

Sweat shop tendencies
I might as well been the janitor. (Former Employee), There aboutsMay 22, 2013
Pros: free sodas
Cons: see above
Not the best position I've ever had, but I can say one of the worst. The blame goes from one disipline to another. There is no set rhyme or reason for the way projects are done.

Some of the projects have been done over 4 or 5 times because of the mistakes each disipline makes..

Hardest part of the job? Trying to get the answers you need to do the design right the first time.

The moral isn't great.

People here are pretty friendly.
