Productive but challenging
Monitoring tech/ Shift Lead (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJune 15, 2018
Working for Danfoss for 11 yrs was good, but very challenging for the most part. Pretty much learn as you go and trying to train new employees at the same time. The most enjoyable part is working as a team to accomplish the task as we continue to give good customer service.
Pros
good pay and benefits
Cons
lack of training and care of employees

Interesting work; Awful leadership
Process Design Engineer (Former Employee) –  Plymouth, MNJune 5, 2018
The work here was really interesting, but the leadership was non-existent. When I came in, they didn't have any documentation or a plan for the 500k project that they wanted me to lead, so I made a very detailed plan for them. When I presented said plan to the leadership, their response was to ask why it wasn't finished yet. Perhaps it is to my detriment, but I just can't abide this level of stupidity. Maybe you'll have better luck? I doubt it.

Clean work place with a strong focus on productivity
Team Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Ames, IAJune 1, 2018
Good people working for this company, but many people in management have too much work on their plate and get buried and aren’t able to perform like they are needed unless they work crazy amounts of overtime or take work home with them.

Great before changes
Work Donkey (Current Employee) –  Easley, SCApril 18, 2018
Danfoss has been a great company to work for, up until 2-3 years ago. Been here for a decade and the changes they've made are terrible. Idiots who shirk work and duties as Team Coordinators, rude and condescending management. Totally different culture than it used to be. I hate coming to work now.
Pros
Benefits, pay ok
Cons
Rude leadership

Where to start
Production Operator (Current Employee) –  Ames, IA 50010March 15, 2018
A Typical Day at work starts with you walking in to find the prior shift didn't do much.

I've learned people only like you if you fit in their clique.

Managment is rarely seen unless your team isn't performing.

workplace culture consists of cold-shouldering people they don't like. Or throwing all responsibility around the department on to one person.

Hardest part of the job is dealing with people who are constantly on their phones. Or not performing job duties at all.

Most enjoyable part of is the 2 weeks off towards Christmas.
Pros
Paid Lunch, Decent Benefits, Full Time
Cons
Arrogant People, Lots of mandatory overtime, low wages
