Old Fashioned and Boring
The business is, most fortunately a very profitable one. Cash wealth seems to have covered up for poor senior management for a significant time. Culture in the business - some of the correct modern things are in the business but not all. Those that are in are more "lip service" rather than actually built in to the natural culture.
The business has a mix of old long term employees and newer ones. the longer service employees are rapidly disappearing for a variety of reasons. With them goes lots of experience and information that is not documented properly - so it will be lost. A couple of really good managers are trying their best to save it, but not enough support from above.

Excellent company to work for
During my time at Spirax Sarco I really enjoyed working here. Excellent company with brilliant benefits, they’re very welcoming and offer training and extra courses to those who are interested. They invest in their people and staff, and it shows.

Good place to be
A typical day involves configuration of Autodesk Fusion Lifecycle that we use as our PLM system.

There is considerable collaboration inside my team and with PLM stakeholders in the business.

Stressful Hitler Regime
Honestly. the guys are Spirax are mainly ok. It's the few leaders that truly let the place down, they act like they own their staff. They conform to rules and do not have any leniency like any decent human being would. Never work there unless you are a robot.

Good business
A great business to work for in Cheltenham with a lovely bunch of people.

Salary is not all that although is typically subsidised by other benefits. Something of an old fashioned Engineering Buisness

Productive and fun workplace
I worked for this company for over 15 years, progressing through the business doing various roles.
I learned a great deal from using a bespoke computer systems to understanding some technical engineering.

The management were extremely supportive in alll roles, helping me to progress and understanding any issues and needs that I had.

The most enjoyable part of the job for me was the great friends that I made whilst working there.
Pros
Loved my job
Cons
Occassional company constraints

Cons
Culture can be old fashioned in time implement change

Mixture of field customer demands and in-house planning
Management rarely available to assist in strategic planning. Co-workers mostly available and very knowledgeable with a distinct lack of communication between sales and factory activities.
Good progress was made between strengthening the working bond between Sales & Service whereby customers were appreciating the joint approach.

Customer Care & Feedback was recognised as a vital part of performance delivery improvement but slow to be driven as a company-wide improvement approach.

The products themselves were top quality and it was always a pleasure to be able to promote, sell and service accordingly.
Pros
Great work place, good package, great co-workers
Cons
Poor support by senior management, complacency

A Company that understands and supports employee advancement
Great experience and support from Management and colleagues. Advancement a reward for dedication. Will miss the people element.

Great products, benefits but management culture very intraverted.
A great work-life ethos is apparent with excellent resources in the field and in-house. My role was new and under developed with little opportunity to grow outside of pre-set high level leadership approval.
The products are world leading but complacency and the corporate drive to increase profits is damaging the overall value Spirax can offer customers.
Pros
Good salary, decent benefits, smart products
Cons
overpowering leadership team
