Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – California – October 25, 2018
Management makes a big difference! Supportive and provides constructive criticism to help your career. The work is challenging but fulfilling. The collaboration between management, employees are top notch!
the management was incompetent, especially the man from Argentina. the group followed example of the boss. unpleasant environment. urgent. Expect to work many hours. very demanding accounting group. unfilled positions while I was there so as a result too much work. will work you to death. this job is for young people coming out from public accounting and used to work 80 hours a week. No life/work balance. The worst job, I ever had within 20 years of my career. Nothing nice to say.
Manager (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – September 22, 2018
Good place to start. Excellent opportunity to travel to great places. Great people on the "deckplate" level. Incredibly poor leadership on the "24th floor." Poor decisions made at the top with negative consequences for mid level management. Lack of transparency, absolutely no loyalty to those who make the company succeed. Toxic culture. Lip service paid to veteran preferences with the opposite reality. Apply if the job looks good - keep your resume handy and keep looking while you are there.
I loved it when I started. I still believe in the company as a whole. They are working toward establishing a consistent culture. Hopefully they will get good people in the right positions to make this happen.

With every job you have your ups and downs. This one seems to have a lot more downs until you find the right person who can explain the process to you. It can be very stressful at times and very rewarding at others.
PRODUCTION MANAGER (ACTING) (Current Employee) – Clarks Summit, PA – August 16, 2018
FLS is a company in flux. As a manufacturer, they're having trouble as the "old guard" who knew the products inside and out are retiring and people with more soft skills are coming in. Also as a manufacturer, they're feeling the pain of a lack of interest from the younger generations in terms of the trades. Very few parents send their kids to machining school these days. Because upper management is so far away from these daily struggles, they rely on metrics and KPIs to judge performance rather than understanding and working to correct these issues.
Each day you would sort orders in accordance with due dates and you needed to get them done and out as quickly as possible. I learned how to use paperwork to track parts. Management weren't micro-managers, they instead allowed you to be self motivated as long as your department didn't fall behind. I would have liked to see more women on the job. I can't think of a hard part.The most enjoyable were the friendships that were developed on the job.
While there I learned skills that I would otherwise never have had opportunity.

Although you have daily/monthly deadlines/goals, working at Flowserve is very easy going. It's not your average someone breathing down your back factory. Fast paced but quality over quantity as well as safety is ALWAYS preached. I would most definitely recommend working here!
Senior Information Technology Manager (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – July 2, 2018
As of 2018, the entire C-level suite has been replaced in the past 9 months. Any review I can give is outdated. The new CEO, CFO, and CIO are trying to right the ship however they have a large task set out for them and one of their first steps is to cut staff. Time will tell if they succeed.
Salaries and benefits are decent.
Bonus payout has fallen very short for past 3 years.
