Lousy place to work in, CFO lacks ethics, a nightmare to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Robert Bosch Tool

ProsGlobal company provides stability
Good brand values
Multiple divisions provide flexibility and different options that can support career opportunities.
Financially secure

ConsNepotism, favoritism and complete lack of leadership
CFO has ethics issues
Weak HR department
Growth based on who you know versus what you are capable of

Advice to Senior ManagementVery toxic environment, it is about time the ethics issues of the CFO need to be addressed. Don't shoot the messenger, instead take heed and act.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Like most jobs it started out somewhat okay, but over the past few years it became very trying.

Dock Operator (Current Employee)
West Memphis, AR

I have been working at Robert Bosch Tool

ProsThe pay was excellent and the benefits weren't bad at all. It is one of the cleanest warehouses that I have ever worked in.

ConsManagement was professional when standing out front, but behind the secens it was a cut throat type of atmoshere and no one could seem to do anything about it. Along with cruel management, favoritism was a key component to job promotion.

Advice to Senior ManagementBuild relationships with employees who will allow you to do so. They will not only respect you but they will trust you as well.
