    I worked at Sulzer full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great and committed people, great international opportunities, great personal development opportunities
    Working in one of the divisions of Sulzer Group is a great experience, where you can contribute and make a difference.

    Cons

    Current Group Senior Management and executive board is destroying culture and image of this once great Company with irrational and irresponsible decisions, without backing their decisions with strategic alignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how Sulzer works and how Business is working within Sulzer before taking irresponsible and irrational decisions.
