Tech1 (Current Employee) –  PaJuly 23, 2018
Few great people work there, other will stab you in the back just thinking their getting ahead. Management wants great things but spending money is always up to someone else. A lot of backstabbing, work watching and busy walking. This place could be a goldmine, unfortunately until foreman buckle down the known issues nothing will change. Setting a schedule and following it would go great.
Pros
Paycheck
Cons
Odd schedules, not enough employees for work load, management likes then”gray” area of the handbook

Decent pay and benefits, but thats it.
Machinist B (Current Employee) –  Madison, WIMay 22, 2018
If you like to work a lot of mandated overtime and weekends, this is the place to work. There's high management turnover and constant change to company policies.
Pros
Decent pay, decent benefits, and sometimes even free lunches
Cons
Mandated overtime and weekends, high management turnover, and lack of communication between departments

Horrible management
Shop Technician (Former Employee) –  Sayre, PAMay 3, 2018
Management is plain horrible. No supplies for the jobs that are required. Safety is the last thing on the managers minds and don't care about fixing the issues. When you say something about any issues they treat you like garbage. Could be a good place but current leadership is lazy and refuses to make changes to benefit the job due to costs. Any injuries are classified as a "At Home" to save the companies safety record. Back stabbing by the managers friends is daily and allowed to hangout while making other's work harder and sit around and laugh about it.
Cons
No breaks, low pay, long hours, horrible management

Management is Horrible
Red Headed Stepchild (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXApril 20, 2018
Managers on the 3rd floor of 601 Weir Way in Fort Worth are the worst. The executive team is not much better. Scotland needs to clean house and start with a team that has the knowledge and wherewithal to do the job. Compliance is swept under the rug (particularly by the Finance Management team). HR is aware of issues but being members of the “boys club” means the issues are laughed off.
Pros
Pay is great
Cons
Management, treatment of minority groups is bad, everything other than pay and benefits

Good place to work, but lacks vision
Valve Technician (Current Employee) –  Ipswich, MAFebruary 22, 2018
Great employees, and culture. Quality has been degrading over the years though as they try to cut costs. This can put an enormous strain on the business and workforce, not to mention unhappy customers as deadlines are missed over and over again. Some management decisions are questionable, but overall the production team is coming together after a major setback in 2012 following the acquisition of another plants product line. The company could stand to be more self reliant. There's room for expansion, but they lack the willingness to do so. It's certainly the type of business that looks as your degree as a price point, rather than what you bring to the table. Either way, they're in a much better place then they were some years back and hopefully that trend continues. If they focus more on quality and on-time delivery, they could be a real contender in their respective market.
Pros
Friendly employees, challenging projects, employee appreciation (i.e. summer outtings, ice cream socials, luncheons, etc)
Cons
Communication between departments. Treatment of some integral employees during deadlines.

Weir Group Review
Field Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Burgettstown, PAFebruary 3, 2018
At my particular work location, I do not give a good review for the Weir Group. It is very mismanaged in all areas regarding the field and the shop. There is also a lot of favoritism that goes on within the company at a very unfair rate. Those who are not on the "A" list regardless of the work they perform are overlooked when it comes to promotions or raises. Those who are getting raises and promotions are the worst employees and really know how to play the cards to benefit themselves. This is all unknown in my opinion to upper management and leadership outside of my own work location.
Pros
benefits, bonus.
Cons
favoritism, poor management, lack of showing gratitude.

Very interesting work
Project Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ipswich, MAAugust 17, 2017
It is a great place to work in. You get to design and make the valve drawings and then see the valve go through the manufacturing floor all the way until it is shipped. It gives you a great satisfaction to be in such close contact with the product.
