Great money
Machinist (Current Employee) –  Olathe, KSNovember 13, 2018
There is a lot of overtime opportunity, so if you dont mind the work there is a lot of money that can be made here. Also a lot of different type of work to expand into if you would like.

Stressful, operations employees worked to the bone, but paid well
Engineering Co-Op (Current Employee) –  Olathe, KSNovember 2, 2018
All in all, it's not a bad place to work. The lower and middle-level management are fine to deal with, with some diamonds in the rough. The real trouble comes from the higher-ups who demand long hours, increased productivity, and hardly ever approve investment into their machines. Each machine that I work with is no younger than 20 years old, ran practically 24/7. Not a place to build a career unless you intend on climbing the corporate ladder.
Pros
Respectable managers
Cons
Long hours, Pressure to perform

A company that believes in Quality.
Sr. Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Overland Park, KSOctober 31, 2018
Typical day included checking individual responsibilities and reacting to any issues. Preparing and managing constant growth and improvements. I learned so much from this company on how to work as a team and leverage assets within them. The company has a great culture that rewards hard work and dedication. The hardest part of the job was managing the conflict of time spent with passion for quality work. The most enjoyable part was the ability to work with top shelf equipment and all the diverse teams to support them.
Pros
Great healthcare plans, 401K, great people
Cons
fair amount of after hour work

Quality Assurance Lab Assistant (Former Employee) –  Lugoff, SCSeptember 22, 2018
A typical day at work invovled performing chemical experiments. I learned new experiments. The supervisor was really good to work with. The workplace culture was that of a manufacturing environment. The hardest part of the job, at times, was standing on my feet all day. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to use my chemistry degree.

SPX is a company focused on achieving business results

quarterly focus sometimes impacts long-term strategic thinking

Challenged, positive changes
VP/Managing Director LATAM (Current Employee) –  Santiago, ChileJuly 4, 2018
Spxflow has gone through significant changes in the past 4 years. First it moved from a geographical split into a market oriented structured but very financially focused.

Decisions are still managed very centrally and empowerment is virtually non-existent.

With new leadership and the drive to move to an operational culture, there is increased focus on strategic growth and leaning out the operations.

The company needs to invest more heavily in lean enterprise cultural reform, innovation and talent management.
Pros
believing in strategic changes
Cons
Financially driven short term mentality

Very stressful work environment.
Senior Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) –  Canonsburg, PAJune 18, 2018
SPX was not a good company to work for. Cared only about the bottom line not about the people. I worked for them fom 2003 to 2013 after they bought out my company. Not a pleasant experience at all.
Pros
Paid a decent wage
Cons
Very high stressed environment.

Very controlled and micro managed
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  AnonymousJune 7, 2018
You are not fully trusted to do the job you were hired for. Most departments do not encourage free thinking or those who ask legitimate questions to better understand how things work. The typical response is “that’s just how it’s always been” and input is not allowed. The culture is the total opposite of warm and fuzzy, except when upper management is around. To succeed here it is best to just keep your head down and do as you’re told.
Pros
Benefits and training opportunities
Cons
There is a big issue with micro management at all levels
