    Pros

    Large organisation with global presence. Job opportunities around the world. Cash security for employees. Very varied product range offering.

    Cons

    Owned by venture capatilists who want a large return on investment meaning head count reduction. Change of management regularly. Makes some silly business desicions.

    Advice to Management

    Get closer to the people who actually do the job rather than making desicions on what they think should be done without k owing the true facts. It's not all sell, sell, sell

    Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Quincy, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Gardner Denver (Quincy, IL (US)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I talked to the HR recruiter a number of times over the phone, he was very nice, then visited them in person in Quincy, IL. When I went to Quincy, I met with 6 people who asked me about myself and my qualifications. Nothing out of the ordinary. The one thing that I thought was weird was that my potential immediate boss was out of town so did not interview with him.
