    I worked at Knorr-Bremse full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The day-to-day work atmosphere was very positive. People got along well with each other and there was a good sense of teamwork. Most everyone really tried to do a good job and support the needs of the company's customer base. Management was very approachable.

    Cons

    The main negative aspect for me was the company's total lack of a formal performance and salary review system for salaried employees. Everyone who was salaried was forced to work for years and years with no raises or cost-of-living increases. Any time raises were mentioned the management always had some excuse as to why no raises were available even though the company was profitable. The company relocated from Ball Ground, GA to Mount Olive, NJ after the original organization (Transtechnik Corp. USA) was purchased by Knorr-Bremse.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that your employees don't come to work every day just for the fun of it. Everyone has bills to pay and commitments to meet. Show your appreciation for good work by giving raises based upon performance on a regular annual basis.
