Absentee Management
Documentation Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Chesapeake, VAJanuary 21, 2019
This company suffers from deep dysfunction in management, processes, leadership, organization, vision, team work, and employee welfare. Management allows and participates in negative and offensive language and behaviors and attitudes, and morale is extremely low. Management does not enforce any quality or culture standards. There is no unifying vision that employees are supported in or encouraged to rally around. It's an every-man-for-himself culture where only the rudest and most offensive voices are respected.
Pros
Free lunches on occasion
Cons
No flexible hours

Flowserve is a great stable company
Pump Mechanic/Precision Assembler (Current Employee) –  Pasadena, TXJanuary 14, 2019
I have spent close to 5 years with Flowserve and can proudly say it’s a great stable company that pays well and gives some the best benefits. Their is plenty of overtime if you wanted to work 80hrs a week you could do it here or if you want to do 40-50 you can also do that. Great company!
Pros
Benefits
Cons

A great place to work
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Hastings, NEJanuary 9, 2019

Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
Layoffs

Needs to be revamped
Contract Assistant/Administrator (Former Employee) –  Chesapeake, VAJanuary 7, 2019
Management was awful and Hr was just as bad. Very hostile environment. They have shown a lot of favoritism and cater to the senior employees but treated hard workers like trash.

Good people at all points in the organiazation, but lots of old schoold thinkers too.
Quality Engineer (Current Employee) –  Sulphur Springs, TXDecember 26, 2018
Currently (end of 2018) moving in a good direction, but lots of change still to be managed before the old production culture has been replaced by one driven by customer needs and desires.

Middle management has not been well trained in lean production and lean supply chain management yet so there is a risk of autonomy decreasing with ramped up data collection and old school micromanagers trying to manage things from too far away, rather than trusting that those involved in the process are most qualified to make the immediate decisions.
Pros
Good autonomy and a good concept of Lean is in place at the top.
Cons
Too many people vying for power.

Senior Sales Engineer (Current Employee) –  Irving, TXDecember 3, 2018
Company tried to build itself as being 200 years old when in fact it was build of a couple companies that can trace their heritage to 200 years but Flowserve has only been around since about 1995. The quality of the products continues to decrease and if this does not change Flowserve will be broken up

one of the worst company I ever worked for
Senior Accountant (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXOctober 11, 2018
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.
Pros
close to work
Cons
no work life balance

Beware
Manager (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXSeptember 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.
Pros
Great travel, interesting products
Cons
Poor executive leadership

High turnover, little chance of advancement. Great for those who love monotony and where you can be blamed for everything wrong with a 50-year-old product.
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
No Advancement

Okay place to work
Shipping & Receiving Clerk (Current Employee) –  Springville, UTAugust 20, 2018
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.
Pros
Good Benefits, friendly people.
Cons
Short Lunch, long hours during end of month.

Work hard and get paid well
PRODUCTION MANAGER (ACTING) (Current Employee) –  Clarks Summit, PAAugust 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.
Pros
Large company, good benefits
Cons
Long hours, high emphasis on metrics

Production driven. Important to get orders out on time.
Wax Press Operator (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHAugust 15, 2018
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.
Pros
While there I learned skills that I would otherwise never have had opportunity.
Cons
Our foundry was closed.
