    Pros

    Large organization with great mission and ethics of original founder. Diverse organization with many types of products and services. Invests heavily in product innovation.

    Cons

    Advancement is not based on competency but social networking which leave many not knowing how to instruct/mentor their teams. Drives leaders to be self focused instead focusing on driving success in everyone.

    Pros

    Collaboration among staff is good. Most groups are cooperative. Many dedicated associates that believe in the potential of the brands. Work life balance was good.

    Cons

    German parent believes that they understand the market better than the Americans and largely drive decision-making. This leaves local management little authority to drive strategy and planning. They are largely relegated to executing orders.

    A good place if you like complacency

    Pros

    Bosch is a financially solid company. Global organization that helps to diversify business. Pretty safe place to work if you like job security.

    Cons

    All of the good talent has left, not the same company that it was 10 years ago. Bosch is a European company that does not understand the U.S. market. They believe that if you make it and place Bosch on it, it will sell. This is not the case in North America. A company needs to market their products and establish relationships with accounts like Home Depot and Lowes if they wish to be successful in America. I watched the organization starve and destroy brands like Skil and Vermont American over the years. Really sad to see strong brands go down the toilet. Recently sold off the Gilmour/Nelson lawn and garden, because they just couldn't compete. Maybe continuing to send Europeans over to run the business units has something to do with that.
