    Pros

    Stable company. Has a canteen on site. There are rewards for good performance, and even if it has a large company culture, there are smaller groups that can feel more like a startup. Bosch has great values and tries to stand by them.

    Cons

    Sometimes too bureaucratic. Some areas are understaffed, and when management realizes this Bosch sometimes grow too fast. Technical career path can be unclear on how to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Hire before you need headcount for a project. There is too much 'learn on the job' and not enough time to optimize things ahead of time to make work more efficient

    Pros

    Very competitive and fair compensation, solid HR processes and policies, competent upper management, privately held, 401k match can't be beat, excellent benefits, great people, ever evolving, strong values, high ethical expectations, they really value their people most and it's apparent by the pay, benefits, and investment the company makes to allow you to go on international assignment regardless of division/hierarchy within organization

    Cons

    As with any very large company, occasional communication disconnect. But overall impressive considering the global footprint and constant evolution and expansion of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Your continued value on people and quality of work will keep the highest caliber employees motivated and happy. Keep doing what you're doing! Bosch is a life changing company to work for.

    I have been working at Robert Bosch LLC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The financial stability and overall size of the company are tremendous "pros" in the current corporate environment. Bosch is always looking for intelligent and pragmatic growth, as well.

    Cons

    Some of the softer touches popular in the market are severely lacking or entirely absent. For the world's largest auto supplier, there are minimal discounts and external benefits to take advantage of.

    Advice to Management

    Expand your "free" benefits outside of the company - discounted internet service? Uber rates for travel? Identify 3-5 new agreements with external companies which employees use and expand from there. It shouldn't cost the company anything, and can only build employee satisfaction.

    Pros

    Highly ethical, value based organization, that is reflected in management and culture. International mobility possible. Great work-life balance

    Cons

    Hierarchical, slow, most decisions made in Germany. Career development is very slow. If you want to grow, don't come here. If you are looking for a place to settle down, welcome home!

    Advice to Management

    Push for local decision making. Promote local talent

    Pros

    Job security is good, good pay and benefits, devoted to R&D, private not-for-profit, self financing so decisions are long term based, excellent corporate values

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy, move to centralize departments which leads to no accountability, job security for lazy employees, SAP, innovation and big decisions made in Germany

    Advice to Management

    Reverse the centralization of departments, cut red tape

    Pros

    Great facility, tools and supplies readily available. The Farmington Hills, MI facility was upgrading to new cubicles that encouraged collaboration. Additionally, the meeting rooms were clean and modern, and there were even desks with treadmills underneath available. Good for a long-term career. Engineers there were friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Larger company, can be more intimidating. Generally the company is valued higher than the individual employee, and the company as a whole isn't as flexible as I would have liked. This made finding a job that I liked after the internship difficult.

    I have been working at Robert Bosch LLC full-time

    Pros

    It's a private company so it's secure. Also focuses a lot on the development of associates and with it being a global organization there are opportunities to work within the US and abroad.

    Cons

    Processes and software are a outdated, although most positions are secure the pay is not as great as other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Use more innovation within the company not just on the development of new products. Also some locations should be casual environment.

    Pros

    Very solid company on financial and product strategy side. Over 125 years Bosch was able to spread it's reputation that is based on fairness, quality and honesty. Good place for who is looking for slow and steady career progress. Working time is very flexible and management very receptive.

    Cons

    As a big company is slow and career progress also slow taking long time to adapt on new trends and concepts.
