    Pros

    Sehr interessanter Mix aus Hardware- und Software-Aufgaben. Die Mitarbeiter sind sehr nett, in Europa gehen die Leute freundlich und offen miteinander um. Die mittlere Führungsebene ist kompetent, das höhere Management hat fast keinen Kontakt zu den Ingenieuren.

    Very interesting mix of hard and software tasks. Coworkers are very nice, in Europe very open and friendly to each other. People managers are good, managers above are mostly non visible to engineers.

    Cons

    Sehr enttäuschendes Gehalt - liegt unter dem Branchendurchschnitt. Nur die Managergehälter sind überdurchschnittlich. Hohe Anforderungen, aber niedrige Boni.

    Very disappointing salaries, below industry average. Only manager salaries are above average. High demands but low bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Wenn schon die Gehälter nicht erhöht werden können, sollte man über andere Verbesserungen nachdenken, zum Beispiel die Arbeitsverdingungen optimieren usw.

    If the salaries can't be improved, one should consider to review other possible benefits, like better working environment conditions etc.
