    Lower than average salary, few opportunities for growth

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The full benefits are nice to have. Not worrying about health, dental or a savings plan is a relief. The work was not necessarily stressful or overly demanding and I was able to go home to my life after I punched out and "leave work at work," so to speak.

    Cons

    The lower-than-average salary is clearly a negative. The way salaries increase (or don't, depending on how the company is doing - and lately that's been pretty poor despite what they say at all of our meetings) is unsettling and unreliable. The subjective scale used to rate employees at end-of-year meetings which then determine your bonuses is unfair. Perhaps my biggest problem with this company is the way which people are promoted - or really, NOT promoted at my site. The longer you are around, the more security you will clearly have but it will literally take YEARS to establish this. You will not be promoted based on skill level or capabilities, but how long you've "stuck around." This is a very old-Reich way of doing things and does not allow new talent to shine. It makes for a stifling atmosphere. Instead, you should work on fostering an atmosphere where new talent can contribute and shine, not be overshadowed by "lifers."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promoted based on talent and performance, not ability to stay in one place for years.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work with multiple levels of the company.

    Cons

    Multi-merger issues with combining the existing product platform with newly acquired products. There is a mis-match of technology, and the competition are all over it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more rotation of non-German US counter-parts. Stop the favoritism.

    Pros

    Large company with plenty of room to grow

    Cons

    From the prospective of Diagnostics they lacked the tools to properly train management personnel. They talked about life balance but did not believe in it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to support and provide proper training to new and existing managers.

    Pros

    flexible schedule, Good if you are ready to retire or don't need career development.

    Promotions with little to no raise, if any!! Promotions are not based on performance, new positions are posted after a candidate has been chosen!

    Management is disconnected from the what happens on low level operations.

    Current Employee - Customer Service Engineer III in Tulsa, OK

    Pros

    Best industry pay/overtime/bonus. Company car, phone, laptop, expense card. The pay and benefits are the best I've seen anywhere. The main reason to do this job is the great pay. I grossed over $100K this year.

    Cons

    Excessive training, travel, Overtime between 10 and 35% depending on location. New hires are especially prone to be burnt out due to back to back trainings. Once you are trained, then the work begins. CSE's in large metros don't travel great distances, but have traffic and large customer commitments that mandate overtime and oncall pay. Rural CSE's have a smaller customer base, but large geographical area where travel accounts for most of the overtime.
