    I worked at Oerlikon full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nice tasks could be picked up but focus is changing to quickly.

    Cons

    Some (German....) 'high-potentials' are getting too many chances, playing games and as management is busy with 'surviving' also people has been mobbed. New CEO (also German) has a totally other personality (and tougher) as the previous and nice Mr. Krueger.
    (By the way: Vladimir V. Kuznetsov is NOT the CEO)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to people-management
