    Pros

    Really good culture. Potential to stay a long time (or at least there used to be) and great extra curricular activities. Great people who have been with the company a long time make you feel welcomed.

    Cons

    Management is too friendly with some of their subordinates. Don't really provide much feedback and will dump you off in a cubical if certain people don't like you.

    Pros

    Lot of problems waiting to be solved.

    Cons

    Multiple layers of management. To much micro management from German H.Q.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce multiple layers of management, Listen to customers, Invest in people and innovation, stop sending managers and accountants from Germany to US, there are enough talented persons in US.

    Pros

    work/life balance, flexibility. Most management teams are easy to communicate with. Good team environment promoting collaboration. Structured and procedural.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement. Direction of organization appears to change yearly resulting in layoffs, reorganizations etc. Pay is often not on level with market. Management is also top-heavy.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for international exposure, learning and working with diverse and talented colleagues, plus the pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Lots of senior managers are fearful of losing their best people to international assignments, blocking and sometimes ruining their chances to fulfill their potential. Work-life balance diminishes the smaller your business volume is.

    Advice to Management

    The top management need to take a step back and think about how the decisions they are making affect the countries where they operate. Also, look at the how you are building your managers to become the leaders you want them to be.

    Pros

    Good reputation with global prestige. Great brand name. The name alone is a door-opener. Global resources are a plus.

    Cons

    Pressure for annual earnings per share can lead to short term thinking trumping long term customer relationships. Highly hierarchical and bureaucratic.

    Pros

    They are quick to train you and offer many different areas of specialty. They seek to help you with your professional development and are flexible with your work/life balance.

    Benefits are excellent and compensation is a bit lacking.

    Cons

    A corporate culture change at the top has lead to them not being as concerned with maintaining personal relationships with customers and instead to focus on accounting goals to t detriment of customer service.
