Valve Technician (Current Employee) – Ipswich, MA – February 22, 2018
Great employees, and culture. Quality has been degrading over the years though as they try to cut costs. This can put an enormous strain on the business and workforce, not to mention unhappy customers as deadlines are missed over and over again. Some management decisions are questionable, but overall the production team is coming together after a major setback in 2012 following the acquisition of another plants product line. The company could stand to be more self reliant. There's room for expansion, but they lack the willingness to do so. It's certainly the type of business that looks as your degree as a price point, rather than what you bring to the table. Either way, they're in a much better place then they were some years back and hopefully that trend continues. If they focus more on quality and on-time delivery, they could be a real contender in their respective market.
Field Service Technician (Current Employee) – Burgettstown, PA – February 3, 2018
At my particular work location, I do not give a good review for the Weir Group. It is very mismanaged in all areas regarding the field and the shop. There is also a lot of favoritism that goes on within the company at a very unfair rate. Those who are not on the "A" list regardless of the work they perform are overlooked when it comes to promotions or raises. Those who are getting raises and promotions are the worst employees and really know how to play the cards to benefit themselves. This is all unknown in my opinion to upper management and leadership outside of my own work location.
favoritism, poor management, lack of showing gratitude.

It is a great place to work in. You get to design and make the valve drawings and then see the valve go through the manufacturing floor all the way until it is shipped. It gives you a great satisfaction to be in such close contact with the product.
