    I worked at Bosch Security (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a very people friendly company. The work atmosphere is very friendly and professional at the same time. I would recommend this company.

    Cons

    Being a larger corporation, one never really knows how decisions are made, especially if you work in the trenches. How new product ideas come about is still a mystery to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a better road map of what new products should be.

    very relaxed atmosphere, everyone is willing to help out. You can learn a lot if you volunteer to do side projects.

    The company is reorganizing, so things are kind of crazy right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Non that i can think of, they are really laid back, and still job focused. its funny mix, but it works amazingly.

    Pros

    A lot of really good people work there. Every cares about the company. Good benefits and good pay.

    Cons

    The company is ruled with an iron fist. A lot of internal audits. It seems like they are always looking for ways to slap you on the wrist.

    I have been working at Bosch Security part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Many of the people I met have worked there for two or three decades. Bosch seems to take care of their employees and make it a stable place to work. As an intern, I was impressed with the rate of pay and the richness of the opportunities you're given during your time there.

    Cons

    The section of Bosch that I worked in was very busy, almost too busy. That means at times an intern can be lost in the shuffle.

    Big Company with a small company feel, for the most part.

    I worked at Bosch Security full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Established culture and a nice working environment. A nice mix of people.

    Cons

    Sometimes had the "old boy club" atmosphere. Senior managers would leave the company, and then often return to assume similar duties. At times a little impersonal. You never knew what was going on at a corporate level. Some strangely timed staffing reductions. Never really felt like there was much chance for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that a huge corporation needs to try to relate to all employees directly, not just the local executive management.

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

    Pros

    Big company = Stability and potential job growth. Also they have an established work culture and management system, which is usually a good thing. Each Bosch location might be different, I did NOT work for this company in NY, I was at another of their locations in the USA.

    Cons

    I saw no "cons" that were not just a basic part of being a huge corporation; in other words, nothing worth mentioning. Just the usual big ships can not turn on a dime type of thing.

    I have been working at Bosch Security full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work places are adequate, some facilities are better than others, but overall Bosch provides a safe work environment.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch of the needs of the "grunt" workers, more emphasis placed on knowing Bosch procedures and processes rather than knowledge of a job or discipline. There is little to no opportunity for advancement outside of engineering disciplines, and there is little to no care about associate advancement from most managers. Most managers with direct reports do not have the proper soft skills to manage people, much more emphasis on managing projects and resources (associates are treated as resources rather than people).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many levels of management and too many approvers, for example it takes at least three different people to approve a cost of $10.00 and then at least two other people to place the order. Associates are not empowered and there is no room for different ideas.

    I worked at Bosch Security

    Pros

    The people are amazing and quite intelligent. Corporate identity is not only centered around profit, but, additionally, community. It was easy to wake up in the morning and be happy to go to work. Upward movement is ever-present and encouraged.

    Cons

    Close quarters means every person knows everything about everyone.
