    Pros

    First off please note then when reading other's reviews that there are MANY divisions and companies under the ThyssenKrupp name. Do not allow other's negative reviews deter you from the company as their experience is of their division only. I personally work for the Industrial Services Division under ThyssenKrupp Materials NA which I can't recommend enough.
    There is a tremendous amount of growth opportunities available. You get out what you put in. If you have a passion for what you do it will show. If you provide solutions and are actively engaged you will be rewarded. They have an excellent benefits package and 401k plus profit share.

    Cons

    The culture is under repair and being put as a top priority via employee culture surveys. There is nothing wrong with the current culture but as with any organization there is always room for improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice for management. Those who are in charge and making decisions currently have earned their place in the organization. They make decisions that benefit the employees and customers.

    Pros

    Pay is good. But they ask you to work more then 50 hours a week. They have fun people to work with.

    Cons

    No training provided. On the job learn as you go. You have little in terms of expectations which makes it difficult to actually do the job.

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good. Benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Untrustworthy management. Co-workers will not share information. Poor computer systems and lack of training. No diversity in management. Sexist comments made to females, who don't have a chance of rising in management. Ex-pats are favored over U.S. citizens. Very deceptive financial practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    German HQ needs to open their eyes about the Forging Division management and do a massive house cleaning, if it wants to remain competitive in the U.S. markets. Maybe American leadership would be a good idea instead of Brazilians who don't understand American culture (and don't care to understand it).

    Hostile work environment

    I worked at ThyssenKrupp

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Management respects the family at home and many concessions are given.

    Cons

    The politics here make for a very hostile work environment. Management bickers like children. Employees on all levels will intentionally fail the customer in order to make some other department or person look bad. This company actually has the resources to offer top notch services, but their own internal divides keep them in a constant state of chaos and confusion. Also, the good Ole boy club has planted numerous landmines between women and authority.

    I have been working at ThyssenKrupp part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked here for 2 years before the merger and life was great. Lots of interesting work to do. It was a great environment with very little drama and politics. After the merger, things have changed and most of the changes are not favorable.

    Cons

    There was a lot of people that were let go and others that chose to go. There was a major management shuffle and then some identity issues. There are major egos now, politics and the managers play favorites. The turnover is higher than it has ever been. In my department, colleagues are encouraged to sabotage each other and the undercurrent is vicious. The new middle management finds a way every day to communicate why all the way that we conduct business are "wrong" in their view point, from the processes to the equipment used. No efforts are made to change anything and saying anything is support of the company is quietly discouraged which is heartbreaking. HR is silent on the issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what your employees are saying, if someone that has a good track record suddenly seems to be floundering, there is a great reason for it.

    Pros

    Good pay, average benefits and work-life balance is decent.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT. Big Brother is watching you in that manufacturing facility. One minor mistake and your head will be on the chopping block.

    Training. Watching videos is the lazy way of teaching training employees. The proper way should be to show and illustrate examples from workers themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Firing people should be last resort. Maybe re-training or having better training practices are needed instead. Also update the training videos so that
