Started out liking the company but management are from the UK and know nothing about how America runs this those guys are cocky and arrogant only recognize management for doing good things if you work in the shop you a beneath them. No structure at all.
Get paid every week and they like to Drink a lot on off time
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Petaluma – September 17, 2018
Rotork is a great company, but some office locations like Petaluma and houston have a few bad people runing the place, this guys been there for over 20 years and if any problems happen or they dont meet the sales expectations they will blame everyone else, any professional is better of working at another company
Petaluma office is run by a guy with no morals or respect for others, low pay rates
Assembler/Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – September 10, 2018
Very challenging work environment where there was a lot of departmental interaction and a wide variety of both parts and finished units made for unique applications. it was also very diverse culturally.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – October 27, 2017
Favoritism and " salesman"lines were a favorite of rotork. Many people were managing areas they shouldn't be. Pay advancments were higher for temps than employees that had been there for years. Stressful environment.
SERVICE COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – July 14, 2017
Never a doll moment at Rotork Controls, lots of interactions with different people. The job it self was not very structured, with no reference material so it required a lot self-teaching, one needed be resourceful. Management was a typical sales-driven organization, when sales were up, spirits were high. Rotork culture was pleasant, the Houston location was growing big during my tenure and it presented many challenges for local management.

Product Engineer - Nuclear (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – April 5, 2017
There is good interaction between the different departments. People are willing to assist with issues to produce the best product possible. There is not a constant push to finish all tasks this second, but when deadlines are approaching work is completed.
Excellent company to work for, expanding at a +30% annual rate for the last 10 years
Inside Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – October 24, 2015
Great company to work for, workplace structured based on British culture. CEO has excellent performance record, company expanding at a +30% annually for the last ten years. Opportunity for management advancement in the US is limited. Salaries are below market average, however the company offers above average bonus scheme, retirement, stock options and 401k package.
Production Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 24, 2015
Too much micro-management. No one needs a manager examining each and every tasks they are asked to do nor should they have to run everything by their manager before making minor changes within their department of responsibility.
General Office Personnel (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – September 24, 2014
This is a company which was small and has grown into a medium to large company. It is trying to do triple the work with the same amount of people. The newer managment does not have a complete grasp of what the employees actually do or what strenths they have. Nor do they have a handle on how to effectively serve the customer. All the departments are working beyond capacity and are expected to do so without doing overtime. They overlook many qualified people.
The best thing about the job was the customers.
The hardest part of the job was motivating myself to go in in the morning.
The most enjoyable part was and is that there are many good people working there who are all in the same boat and are doing the same thing, which is looking for a new job. I would say at least half of the people there are looking for a new job.
