Worker (Former Employee) - Houston, TX - December 21, 2019
Besides bad work environment, management never knew what was going on. Always late on orders and inventory was a joke. Advancement was by favoritism. It’s not what you know it’s who you knew and still is
There are very few typical days at work because each day brings new challenges and requires you to always be on your toes. The typical day is rarely boring. For the most part management is supportive. It is a very friendly culture and most people are approachable. The hardest part of the job is managing conflicting priorities. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you find solutions for difficult problems.
Management was very friendly, pay was mediocre and had no options for raises beyond inflation. Work was very stressful, overloaded constantly.
Smaller branches so you get stuck doing a lot of little extras that eat up time you don't have.
Largely under-educated middle management lacking applicable education/experience to understand something as simple as the company's portfolio. Each manager continuously trying to build / protect their own 'micro empire' instead of looking out for the best for the company / customer. Engineering manager on multiple occasions 'asked around' to find out if employees were actually sick if they had called in sick. No real opportunities for advancement.
I was hired on as Flow Quip, Inc employee. Rotork later bought FQ, the last 12 years have been a learning experience I will never forget. Benefits are great, bonus scheme and 401k along with stock options.
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
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
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.
I loved working there,,,,variety of things to do in my job and loved the people I worked with.
I really enjoyed working with the customers and getting to them
Worked closely with other departments and also really enjoyed that
