    Its a Mixed Bag !!!

    I worked at Robert Bosch India

    Pros

    Quality of work is real good , you get to work on cutting edge car software !!!
    Relaxed work environment .
    Free food (You get fed up of it after a while).
    Onsite opportunities for everyone.

    Cons

    Slow growth for freshers.
    Bad paymaster, pays like any other IT company.
    Harassment by management during notice period while leaving the company (In some departments they even make an all out effort to screw up the rest of your career).
    Arrogant HR (most of the people i knew)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Project Managers and Group Managers at times are very egoistic and hypocritical. Ensure that they stick to the values on which the company is based .
    STOP HARASSING employees who want to leave , you need to respect their decision.

    Pros

    Free food
    Onsite opportunities
    job safety
    A lot of time for other activities

    Cons

    Lethargic environment
    0 learning
    not a product company just like any other services company
    Less salary
    Very slow growth
    No defined future road maps for new comers
    Total waste of time !!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to think why you want to hire an associate before hiring him/her
    Stop using associates as pieces of block game, don't fit them wherever you want to, everyone comes with a specific skill set and mind set, give them what you have promised during campus interviews

    Pros

    Good Work-Life balance
    Free food.
    You get to travel abroad (mostly Germany) at some point in your stay

    Cons

    - The salary you get here is a joke
    - No growth
    - HR staff are visible only during events
    - Managers lack vision and they are just concerned increasing head count
    - Promotion / Onsite opportunities for favourites
    - Company functions as a manufacturing firm than a software company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unless they come out of mindset with the sole aim of increasing headcount and preparing 100's of PPTS and XLS nothing is going to change here. Developers / Specialists are not respected and not paid enough.

    Great brand value but sluggish pace.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Robert Bosch India full-time

    Pros

    - As a company with very little work, naturally the work-life balance is great. But, this is detrimental for those looking for a challenging and dynamic careers.
    - Great variety of current-industry standard trainings available in order to improve pace.
    - Good number of onsite opportunities.
    - Great counterparts in Germany, USA who are affable and help in knowledge growth

    Cons

    - Very poor middle management which have a sucking effect to employee enthusiasm and creativity.
    - Promotions are not solely based on Employee Performance.
    - Poor incentive and pay standards.
    - Uninspiring work (I am generalizing although there are some profiles which are challenging. But, overall this is a minority and getting it depends heavily on chance).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the aim is to move from a sluggish environment to an inspiring and dynamic environment where employees strive to achieve and innovate, please provide the necessary support. And by support, I mean not just empty words but active participation by supplementing innovative ideas with the trainings, knowledge or opportunities required. There are bright employees but the environment is just not an actively supportive one.

    Pros

    highly professional community, newer methods are employed, compensation is very good, good learning platform

    Cons

    more responsibility implemented for lower levels, managers shoulders lot of work load, less personal time for bachelor employee,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more leaner learning methods to younger trainees, everything should not be of cost reduction.

    Current Employee - Associate Software Engineer in Bangalore (India)
    Current Employee - Associate Software Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I have been working at Robert Bosch India full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1) Its a relatively easy company to get into, either through campus or after working in some embedded company. Good for people with no big dreams in life.
    2) Good Job security.
    3) Some departments do not have much work, while some make good money, and good onsite.

    Cons

    1) Filled with incapable people who rotted in the company for years and hence are made managers without any choice.
    2) Too much process, for 10 units of actual work You'll do 90 units of process and documentation.
    3) Good Performance pay and hike for sincere slogging employees with slave mentality.
    4) Too short onsite like 3 months. 6 months for pure donkey like working people.
    5) You'll never find employees who switched from good automotive companies who switched to RBEI, but people only move out of here to Delphi, Continental etc.
    6) Staying here will slowly make You noncompetitive.
    7) Poorest in Automotive domain compensation.
    8) Company surviving at mercy of knowledgeable people who somehow dont want to quit.

    Former Employee - Senior Hardware Engineer in Bangalore (India)
    Former Employee - Senior Hardware Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I worked at Robert Bosch India full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Good for married people. Personal life balancing is possible. But average salary will reduce within 4 years.

    Cons

    1. Definitely spoil freshers carrier, because no knowledge grow and very less salary.
    2. Other candidates of same experience (those who already in bosch) are recruiting by paying more salary normally 3lakh more and they will promote to 51 or 52 level also.
    3. For many people salary and experience is same. They will not compensate the salary in increment by compare with new comers.
    4. This will finally lead to quit the job.
    5. Goal settings no one can achieve. They need to file the patent every year and many jobs no innovative work. If you tell that they nominate you for IP training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Now a days lot of resignations you are receiving. Main reason is more salary difference in boschelor and new comer.
    2. salary and experience is same. Atleast maintain salary 1 lakh more than the experience because all the employees are not having onsite opportunities especially in hardware.

    Former Employee - Mechanical Design Engineer in Bangalore (India)
    Former Employee - Mechanical Design Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I worked at Robert Bosch India full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - good onsite opportunities. Even this won't come easily. Lot of competition for it

    Cons

    - No Transparency for your ratings. It squarely depends on your relationship with your lead / manager.
    - Lot of politics as it is portrayed by the management that they give job security. Ambitious employees who are not hard working, will have a gala time in this place.
    - No avenues to submit complaints online, even anonymously
    - Food is not free as many people think. They will make up for it as the company doesn't cover for parental insurance.
    - Job security is not mentioned in your offer letter. it is only told orally.
    - Salary is very low.
    - As long as i was there, i never understood the relationship between your ratings and your hike as there was no tranparency.
    - There is no emphasis on integrity
    - There may not work pressure. But you are forced to come before 10 am and not leave before 4 pm. Atleast i wasn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cannot advice to management anything as it is mostly indian. Indian managers are incompetant. Germans should take over this company more and more and establish strong and transperant process to flush out the filth.
