    I have been working at Etas full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Bosch benefits, pay is fair, raises are average, bonus can be good, 401k match is decent. Time off between Christmas and New Years.

    Cons

    No real leadership, decisions are awful, it's difficult to recommend to a friend. I would steer clear as this is not a good company any longer. A few years ago it was great however it is not good any longer.

    Advice to Management

    Talk with employees once in awhile.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Etas (Ann Arbor, MI) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted on LinkedIN for a position by a company recruiter. I was moved to an internal recruiter who coordinated the process. My first direct interview was with the technical director for the position I was asked to apply for on LinkedIN. An onsite face to face interview was set up where I expected to meet about the position we had discussed on the phone. I met with the technical director, BD director and a sales lead. The interview changed from a technical to a sales interview and we spent ~2 hours in discussion of sales related things. Following the interview, I was told to apply for a sales posting that would be listed on the website. A week after that I was contacted again about coming in to interview for the sales job. This round I met with the person in charge of North America who asked a number of sales focused questions. I was moved to the HR lady who told me about the company, benefits/etc. From there I met an intern and one of the engineers who asked a number of technical questions. I had prepared for a sales interview based upon the 2nd job description I was told to apply to and the questions were based on technical product and integration. About two weeks later I got a rejection notice and was told my technical skills had gaps. At this point I was almost relieved as I had the impression the place operates in a rather disjointed style and while it's a small office, of the 9 different people I spoke with I concluded I had 11 different discussions about 3 different jobs and every time I went in to a meeting expecting a meeting about one thing, the people I met with had a different agenda.
    It's akin to a homeowner looking hire someone to do plumbing on their home and when they show up, the homeowner wants the electrical work done. The plumber is going to have everything they need to do a plumbing job... not electrical work.
