    I have been working at Bosch full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits. Although gone are the days of the pension, they offer great 401k match, low cost premiums for Medical, Dental, Vision, etc. among many other incentives. If you have the right boss, the job is really flexible. I can work from home a few days a month. We have busy times where we work late, but in the slow times nobody complains if you leave a little early. My previous 3 bosses have all worked with...

    Cons

    The structure is HUGE. I report data to at least 4 different management groups (local, regional, business unit, product specific...). This causes a lot of waste in my opinion. Also they can be really slow to adopt new policies and with the large management sometimes getting buy-in for improvements is impossible. Your development really depends on your direct supervisor. I've been lucky, but I have colleagues...

    Advice to Management

    Create a leaner structure and standardize reporting. Letting each BU leader act like he is a CEO ends up creating double work for the employees.

    Pros

    Bosch is a world leading automotive supplier! Great company, great products, long history, with diversified culture.

    Cons

    As such a big multinational company, some of the internal process is not very efficient, which could be further improved.

    I worked at Bosch full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's a big company with lots of lateral opportunity. It is international and very diverse. There is opportunity to move internationally.

    Cons

    It's really big and easy to get lost. It is very hard to get into any management role. Promotions take time but can be worth it if you can wait for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Bosch

    Pros

    - Job Security very high, even through hard times. - Great opportunities for international assignments. - Bosch makes long term investments and sticks with them.

    Cons

    - Extremely bureaucratic culture - Extremely hierarchical culture - Multi discipline is predicated on corporate level, but in reality it is very hard to shake off one's "title" - Creativity is replaced by top-down protocols and orders - The HR department has literally two left feet; honestly it feels they work against the associate.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the benefits of standardization, but please understand that this does not come without drawbacks. This obsession with standardization has resulted in a very boring and rigid environment. Not to mention business ideas that do not make sense but are PUSHED because they are the "way things are done". Stop just giving lip service to creativity and entrepreneurship; either embrace changes or just stop lying...
