Low pay, low moral,out dated equipment and midlevel management is disinterested.
Machinist (Current Employee) –  La Porte, TXSeptember 7, 2017
Sulzer could be a good place to work if some management changes were made in some divisions. Most managers have their favorite employees all the others are treated like they are expendable, ie , If you don't like it leave. Benefits are offered but could be much better. Medical insurance deductible doubled this year to $8000. USD for a family this year.
Cons
You had better not take a break !!!!

Sulzer for life
Draftsman/CAD Operator (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 13, 2017
Sulzer Turbo Services is a decent company. They pay poor and have long, long hours, and there is a lot of micromanaging. But it is very stable.

GOOD
* The company is stable, it has been around for over 40 years.
* Management is flexible to accommodate your occasional scheduling changes.
* Co-workers are rough around the edges, but nice and fun.

BAD
* Hourly pay is below average.
* You work lots of hours.
* Micro-management is the corporate culture.
* Nepotism is rampant, you cannot get a promotion unless key bosses love you.
* There is no advancement. You are hired to do the same job for your duration at the company.
Pros
stability
Cons
low pay, long hours, poor management, no advancement

Not a great place to work.
Payroll Administrator (Former Employee) –  Belle Chasse, LAApril 27, 2017
Very cut-throat place to work. The majority of the office people would stab you in the back to make themselves look better. Money and benefits were great, but I had to get out of there to like myself again.
Pros

Cons

Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  La Porte, TXMarch 10, 2015
It is a large company with many opportunities, it is a family like atmosphere and most people who work there have been there for many years. Travel is sometimes required but they pay for all expenses.

Ok place to work
Drafter/Designer (Former Employee) –  La Porte, TXFebruary 12, 2015
Daily life stops once you get here. If there is an emergency at home you will not know about it unless someone tracks you down here. Micro-managers are always watching your every move, even so much as to peek around a corner to see what you are doing. The actual job is good and the non-manager people are great.
Pros
Free food on saturdays
Cons
Micro-managers everywhere

Fast paced and a great place to begin
Mechanic/Balance Tech (Current Employee) –  La Porte, TXJanuary 27, 2015
Great place to learn this field of work. At times it can be a fast paced place to work but a lot can be learned. Can be lots of overtime depending how the field is doing that year. The people there are great to work with and the hardest part would be tooling up over time if you are starting out.
Pros
No experience needed
Cons
Not much room for advancement

Sulzer Turbo Services on the job site along with enforcing Sulzer company policies.
Pros
Good pay, travel reinbursement, on call pay, and double time on weekends

Very stable company, for now. Beware which division you work in.
Lead AutoCAD Forms Draftsman (Current Employee) –  La Porte, TXJune 24, 2014
If you don't like being rewarded for hard work and solving problems, as well as enjoy being subject to status quo of the management team, this is the place for you. Middle management is made up of some "good 'ol boys" who have worked together for decades. They (well, most of them) are very sharp when it comes to knowledge of the machines, but only one of them has any formal management training, much less people skills.

The apparent objective is to keep morale as low as possible and work as few people as possible to death. The opportunities for advancement are nil unless you are an engineer that has graduated from A&M.

The company itself seems to be a good company to work for. However, depending on which site and/or division you decide to venture to, you may be in for excessive doses of mental anguish.
Pros
Good benefits package, health related bonuses, end of year performance bonuses
Cons
Shop has a prison lockdown feel to it instead of proud workers of a leading international company
