    I have been working at Robert Bosch Tool full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get exposed to great learning very early, small teams so you work on various processes. My team is nice, fun and help each other. My management is understanding, flexible and responsive

    Cons

    Small team so we always have lot of work. Sometimes all the business units are not on the same page and it take long to come to agreement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All Business Unit presidents have to work with the sales organization to drive sales.

    Pros

    Fantastic Field Sales personnel. High quality products. Sometimes very innovative products.

    Cons

    Too top heavy with way too much invested in Headquarters personnel. No money to Market the product in a very competitive landscape. Many times last to market. New items have to be paid for (money calculated in the cost) to refund Germany for R&D. Many times competition allowed to use proprietary innovative product before North America could sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower Field Sales to drive growth with LPF.

    Very toxic environment, it is about time the ethics issues of the CFO need to be addressed. Don't shoot the messenger, instead take heed and act.

    I have been working at Robert Bosch Tool full-time

    Pros

    The management team in my business unit is on point
    We are doing a lot of great work that is succeeding with double digit growth
    My coworkers are fun and genuinely good people
    I'm learning a lot everyday
    My manager has my back and I'm free to make decisions

    Cons

    My business unit is the anomaly, the rest of the organization does not experience these pros
    Upward mobility is limited
    Compensation is not industry competitive
    Eventually I will have to leave to accomplish my career goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internet based distribution is just as big of a long term threat as it is a short term opportunity
    We need a right angle drill
    We need to focus more effort on industrial distribution
