    Management needs to be managed better

    ITO and PMO Office (Current Employee)
    Malvern, PA

    ProsEducational opportunities are good, if you get a good manager

    Kaeser promotes and encourages diversity.

    ConsIt's a crap shoot on getting a good manager. Management and solid direction is lacking. Constantly pulling the rug out from underneath its employees. And they promise much more than they can deliver.

    Mid to upper management do not follow Kaeser's example

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a grip on some of your managers. Most all of them keep a "fall guy" on hand. And its usually the ones that have been around for a long time. Far too long in some cases.

    Kaeser would be ashamed if he knew what was going on in the PMO and ITO divisions. But utimately this is his responsibilty to know and correct the actions of these managers. But then again, there is that "fall guy" that they have ready to throw under the bus.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Solid Career, A little unorganized, Very corporate

    Service Account Engineer (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsWell established company. Great benefits.

    ConsVery corporate. A lot of time is wasted on technology issues such as errors in online training, etc. Not a very "team" oriented structure. Employees must be very resourceful when solving problems because there's not a very strong support structure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on creating a better support structure through the chain of command. Before rolling out new sales initiatives, ensure all details are in place to provide a quality service to customers.

    Large Company with opportunity for career growth

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
    Orlando, FL

    ProsLots of opportunity, challenging, local leadership engaged, able to have input on career, solid company trying to focus on employees and customers.

    Conslarge company with many layers, changes structure a lot, Corporate not always in tuned to the people on the ground. Sometimes numbers driven and does not see the big picture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure to keep employee morale in mind with all the changes. Do not sacrfice long term for short term success. Test new ideas before inititating big changes to make sure works.

    A great place to make a name for myself.

    Financial Leadership Development Program Intern (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe company is massive and delves into about anything you can think of. I studied finance and didn't really know exactly what I wanted to do, this was a great place to dive in and decide whether I wanted to work in manufacturing, healthcare, energy, etc. Office culture is young an exciting. The intern class is from all over the country and they certainly encourage working at offices outside of you hometown to stretch out.

    ConsThe interview is not easy, even a standard behavioral interview will have some tough questions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
