    Pros

    Great benefits for employees. A fairly friendly and laid-back place to work. Very stable job. Overtime opportunities. Good job for a CNC machine operator. Genuine concern for employee safety and welfare.

    Cons

    Remote corporate control of company policies leads to dissatisfaction among shop employees. Not enough disciplinary action for employees who repeatedly make careless and stupid mistakes. Pay caps limit employee incentive. Long time employees are resistant to change and have no incentive to care. They won't be fired, disciplined or rewarded. Not much company incentive for individual employees to overachieve.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more local control over department hiring and paycaps. Before deciding to initiate new programs and policies start with the lower (hands on) management to find out the best way to navigate and reach the goal while being inclusive of employees.

    Pros

    Maintains a "family" solidarity in spite of recent expansions. Deep expertise in a variety of technical disciplines-- great exposure to all aspects of beverage production Variety of projects and abundance of massive projects give great opportunities for learning

    Cons

    Very inflexible around internal processes, due to management systems and technical stubbornness

    Pros

    Acceptable salary, good benefits, always new and interesting work to keep you occupied, travel extensively in the Western Hemisphere, Opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    Krones is a very top-down company. All decisions and policy comes from the German home office. Few engineering or policy decisions are now made in the USA.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a better vector of communication that will allow information and knowledge to come from the client/customer to the engineering department in Germany.

    Langer Fußweg vom Parkplatz bis zum Gelände, es wird kein Doktorandenprogramm (zumindest nicht für Betriebswirte) angeboten

    Einführen eines Doktorandenprogramms und engere Kooperation mit der betriebswirtschaftlichen Fakultät der ansässigen Hochschule.

    Pros

    Der wichtigste Grund - bei Krones zu arbeiten - der Job wird sehr gut bezahhlt - Täglich eine neue Herausforderung -

    Cons

    Ich würde keine Empfehlung für die Firma Krones aussprechen - Teamarbeit - Kollegialität -und vorallem der Respekt ist für die Firma ein " Fremdwort" - wer über eine Leihfirma in eine Anstellung kommt , wird wie ein " Sklave" behandelt - Ehrliche, offene und klare Diskussionen werden ausgebremst , - etc

    Advice to Management

    Da ich selbst wie "scheisse" behandelt worden bin , -würde ich dem Managment wünschen , das Sie ihren " Blickwinkel" ab und zu auf das Wesentliche richten -- den Menschen am Arbeitsplatz - jeder sollte wichtig und gesehen werden...

    Pros

    Überaus sozial, Hilfe in allen Angelegenheiten, gute Arbeitsplätze, usw. usf.

    Cons

    Das wir bei Krones trotz des vollen Einsatzes aller "Kronesen", und ständig steigenden Umsätzen und besten Quartalsergebnissen Monat für Monat noch keine Prämienzahlung haben wie es sie bei dem Nachbar-Konzern BMW gibt.

    Advice to Management

    Belohnt die Mitarbeiter mit diesen oben erwähnten Prämienzahlungen und die "Kronesen" werden sich 1000%-prozentig dafür bedanken.
