    I have been working at Carl Zeiss full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The team at ZEISS provides support in many aspects of the job like immediate compensation of travel expenses and a hardware and technical support staff that prioritizes the service team. The team at headquarters will do all that they can to ease any trouble out in the field.

    Cons

    Policies seem to be implemented without much thought; the service team seems to be a test group for certain policies. In addition, the support team can seem limited at certain times.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise policies/ practices be established and followed-though without having multiple cases occurring at one time; to set a more established set of guidelines and to ensure that when moving forward it is sure.
