Pros

The time off policy was decent and work from home arrangements are negotiable. The benefits has a great support structure and the ability to travel around the world was interesting and fun.

Cons

It's big. There are a lot of issues that arise in America because of the German work culture and the differences between the two. There are little opportunities for promotions unless you are a white German male. There were very few women managers and the one that I did see was German. The politics within the company are complex and suffocating.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start to understand more of what your middle management is doing and stop focusing so much on the revenue.

    Pros

    Micro Managment at it's best. They will be involved in every aspect of you day to day. There will never not be an reason not to be busy. Great for people who love to work. The salary is within acceptable ranges and Most management is pleasent enough to deal with.

    Cons

    Micro Managment at it's best. They will be involved in every aspect of you day to day. The have rules laid out for how you should do your job. There is no real room for error or slow days in their minds. If they pay you for 40 hrs and work only comes to 30hrs, they will eventually find 4 people in the same boat and remove one to spread the work around. This makes for a somewhat tense desire to find work by the more "go getting" employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everything worker do can be arrange in such a way to have standards that don't change. You can't just expect every job to go as planned

    Great company with too much beauracracy.

    Pros

    Large corporation with significant room to grow. Diverse product offerings allow for hedging against market fluctuations. Heavy process discipline can be positive for someone who likes structure. Career opportunities are excellent, if you're willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Focus is on audits and reporting, rather than driving change and results, which tends to inhibit entrepreneurial ideas and risk taking. Signifcant investments in new products not yielding high ROI, placing pressure on cost reductions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push down decision making to lower levels and focus on results, rather than budgets or process. Who audits all of the auditors? :-)
