    I worked at HAVER & BOECKER full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    125 years of history and company remains in family hand. The fifth generation just took over the management. Management and colleagues are highly professional and very friendly. Very long term thinking and practice.

    Cons

    To me the company seemed to technology oriented. They probably have some of the world's best engineers of the industry, but at almost all hierarch levels lack of commercial understanding.

    Advice to Management

    As per my understanding they are on the right way. Try to get more commercial perspective in the business and take overdue painful decisions on one of the two major future markets.

    I have been working at HAVER & BOECKER full-time

    Pros

    Most people are nice. 20 days vacation. Nice benefits. Full coverage of dental, vision and medical health insurance for yourself.
    Life insurance. 401K retirement plan at Principal.

    Cons

    Main problem is the communication: NOBODY tells you anything! For example: You don't get to know who the new person in the shop is, or that somebody just left.
    Compensation: After the compensation analyses some people were happy about a raise, but the income of some others got cut 50%.
    The management works in their own pocket and you don't get anything!
    Some Managers are just not the nicest people.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about the people that are working for you and do something for them and not just for yourself. Or otherwise the knowledge that those people got, will leave gladly for another job. Sure, everybody is replaceable, but at what conditions? That they leave after 3 years because they don't get forward in this company. You need to train the new person to the knowledge of the former. That will at least just take 1 year. Start appreciating your colleagues.

    Pros

    If you like a circus this is the place to be. You can do what you want to do. No one tells you what you are doing right or wrong.

    Cons

    No leadership, no communication, no training, no performance reviews, show favortism

    Advice to Management

    Get some training on how to manage and talk to others. You meet every day but don't say anything to your employees.

    I worked at HAVER & BOECKER (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    4 weeks paid vacation, you get "engineer" appended to your job title, even in sales, although I can assure you no engineering happens here - that's all done in Germany, there are only technicians at the Conyers location.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, expected to work 60+ hours per week including lots of Saturdays and Sundays. Senior management consists of a pushover who only shows up to sign checks and a man-child that fires everyone who disagrees with him. Almost all of the people working here are either so incompetent that they don't realize there is a problem, stuck in contractual/visa obligations, or just desperate for a job and already looking for a new one. Most of the experienced sales, service, and assembly people have left the company and at this point it's not really clear who is doing any actual work in this place. Unless changes are made, I would be surprised to hear this branch is still in business 5 years from now.

    Advice to Management

    1) Start acting like adults and listen to your employees. Many are afraid to speak out because they know they will lose their job if they do. 2) Do some research and realize that you will never find talented people to work for you when you are paying well below anyone else in the industry and facilitating a hostile work environment to top it off.

    Pros

    Nice Building, decent sales tools. Reverse commute from ATL. European vaca schedule. Cultured due to all of the different Management nationalities of the employees.

    Cons

    Disorganized, extremely negative environment, elementary senior management. Just a sad depressing place that slowly consumes the human sole.

    Advice to Management

    Just do your job. Unfortunately,the management team does not posses the acumen to absorb advice.

    Pros

    Mitarbeiter arbeiten gut zusammen, schnelle Übernahme von Verantwortung, erfahrene Kollegen bauen Nachwuchs zielgerichtet auf, Work-Life-Balance, konkurrenzfähige High-Tech Produkte, Technologieführer, weltweit sehr gut vernetzt

    Cons

    Top Management trifft zeitweilig nicht nachvollziehbare Entscheidungen top down, Erfahrungen von Mitarbeitern werden nicht immer in Entscheidungsfindung berücksichtigt, Mentalität ist manchmal gewöhnungsbedürftig, Mitarbeiterentwicklung findet nur in Ausnahmefällen statt
