    I have been working at Osram Sylvania full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent people, Danvers is convenient to 128 and flex time is available. Managers are not time clock micro-managers, if you have an appointment or sick child, they are very understanding. Working at home is also an option. Many training programs available and opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Continuous reorganizations and severance programs create loss of experienced personnel, which in turn causes one person to do the job of three. Owned by German company that does not value or appreciate American work ethics. Jobs are posted when they are actually already promised to a department "favorite" or current employee's offspring. "Old Boys Club" and favoritism runs rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create one game plan and stick to it, give it a chance to work before pulling the plug. Communicate to lower levels and stop with the favoritism.

    I worked at Osram Sylvania full-time

    Pros

    Large company with good family benefits. Great R&D team for new technology.

    Cons

    Management is in disarray. No one takes ownership for anything. Too many layers to get anything approved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why do all your great and good sales people leave? Why do you only retain your B player sales people?
