How are promotions handled at Robert Bosch Tool Corporation?

Pros

Travel, stability and work life balance

Cons

Bad pay master. Upward mobility is very tough. Unless you know someone in upper management or you’ve to be a YES Sir/Mam guy. The common excuse you will hear when you ask about promotion you’re not social. So social here means listen all the nonsense and keep smiling. Go for team lunches with your money. As there is no budget for team lunch or team building. Important point working with Europe team is tough. Bureaucracy is at its best here. You will find architects everywhere and managers who can’t write code. Yet they call themselves “Software Company” lol To top it up they apply processes of manufacturing to software development. So clearly the leadership doesn’t care about software development or they don’t know software development. Either way by far they are not a software development company. This is because IT is not their core business. This clearly reflects in the way the leadership team and the way promotion happens. If you’re a software developer you’re the least important person in the organization. Especially Digital Business. Please stay away from this group or team if you’re coming from a software company. If you’re a software developer they don’t know what career track is for you or career path is for you. They will ask you to come up with one. God knows what is the role of HR and manager is for. You will hear all rosy stories from the leadership team during town hall meetings. Unfortunately it stays right there. It’s all talk not walk the talk. They don’t mean what they say. Leadership team evades and gets defensive if you ask critical questions.

Advice to Management

You’re not going to be a software company just because you say so. Build the culture top down and bottom up. Learn to answer critical questions no point being defensive. If you can’t take critical questions why the drama of open forums and town halls etc. Promote people on merit and don’t give lame excuses

Upward mobility is very tough.
