I worked at Oerlikon full-time for more than a year

Pros

Nice tasks could be picked up but focus is changing to quickly.

Cons

Some (German....) 'high-potentials' are getting too many chances, playing games and as management is busy with 'surviving' also people has been mobbed. New CEO (also German) has a totally other personality (and tougher) as the previous and nice Mr. Krueger.
(By the way: Vladimir V. Kuznetsov is NOT the CEO)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to people-management

    Pros

    the experience within a couple of years one gets at Oerlikon one would need two or three times longer in another (more stable) company. ie for the career and technical development it is great, if you can handle the instability and turns around

    Cons

    ups and downs and fluctuatin of colleagues is a clear minus... change of strategies and projects are often too fast so that one ist not yet really implemented and the next mngt team generation is already coming with a new strategy...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    speed up modern HR tools and motivation of the staff, reduce fluctuation, build up inter-departamental exchange
