    Pros

    Work first hand in complex and demanding tasks from the beginning Get to learn a lot very fast

    Little onboarding for interns. You learn as you go which makes tasks in the beginning very challenging and time-consuming

    Advice to Management

    Have an onboarding for new people

    Pros

    Here to pay the bills.

    Cons

    One shift supervisor with a big head trying to tell other shifts what to do. Upper management not doing their job, but taking orders from this supervisor. Seems that what is good for one shift, somehow doesn't work for another shift. The rules and things we are supposed to go by is not applying to this shift because of the partiallality of upper management to this supervisor. His people get overtime, when others... are told no overtime is allowed. Please wake up and dig deep into this problem in our plant. The biggest con in my book, and others, as well; is the lack of consistency in treating all shifts the same!

    Advice to Management

    Come in like an undercover boss and take a look at how things are done in our plant. Too much prejudice and partiality! Treat each person the same. Shouldn't matter who you are, but how you work. I want our plant to be known for doing what's right, good quality products in a timely matter. Losing customers means losing jobs. Wake up people! It starts with one step, one voice. One person that cares about their job... and doing the right thing.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    None, as it would just fall on deaf ears.

    I have been working at Robert Bosch Tool Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Truck, phone, iPad, benefits and laptop

    Cons

    Drastically overworked and tremendously underpaid according to industry trends. Moody regional managers with control issues. Corporate gives orders and regional manager draws play in the sand. Lack of integrity and will cheat you out of every bonus! Lack of structure and obviously a automotive company trying to sell tools. This would have to possibly be the worst ran company in the country.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what you owe them. Get organized and for Pete’s sake take a look in the mirror and stop blaming everyone and take accountability for not supporting sales with quality programs. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Basics!

    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

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Career advancement comes if you know what you want. The people here are great and the team spirit/culture makes coming to work a joy.

    Cons

    For me none. There are no handouts here. It's not enough to work hard- you need to work hard in front of the right people and make sure you get noticed for the right reasons, then success comes easy.
