    Pros

    A small company that has great people and a nice work environment. If you can work unsupervised and like it, great place to work. Benefits are good and pay OK. The freedom, the diverse projects and the learning potential are worth the price of admission. If you can take the ball and run with it, this is a great place to be.

    Cons

    Somewhat unworkable business model for this size company. Company is divided into separate business units that compete against each other. On paper it sounds good, but the company is too small in the states to work well like this. If each business unit was large enough to be self sufficient as in Germany it would work here. Hard to turn a profit when your unit has to pay for another units expertise at the street price. It is normally less expensive to go to outside vendors. This concept works against the success of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your business unit approach in the states. There is not enough depth of expertise to units to be self sufficient. There's a problem when business units go to outside vendors for projects that could be done in-house only because it saves a little money. You need to focus on keeping work in-house and let the business units work together at a reduced cost. You need to encourage team work and team building, not individual business unit success at all costs!

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at FEV in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer was friendly and courteous, questions were about academic history and based on my resume. I received the offer within a couple of days. However, they offered a low wage, so I wrote to the HR asking for a better pay. I am waiting for them to get back to me on the offer.

    Reasons for Declining

    I wrote back asking for a better pay, I hope to hear back from them in a week.
