    Can do so much but No where to go!!

    Product Manager (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsGreat benefit package and nice work campus

    Consopportunities are given either to those who are "yes" man or know the right people. This is true specially in the purchasing and production groups. Very political and the path to progress depends on who you know and not what you can do! It almost felt like US congress about how progress is made in one's career!! And of course if you are German, then you are on the path to any jobs you want, and again this is especially true in purchasing organization stemming from the top leadership position... Sky is the limit! And never disagree in public or private with the top dogs.. Career killer approach, no matter how correct you are about your professional point of view.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake off the blinders and let the skillful employees express their opinion and contribute in the decision making process! Open up the job opportunities to those who can positively influence your organization and not to those you favor either due to ethnicity or favors to political alliances

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
