    Pros

    It has the IG metal tariff. It was like a small town, everything was inside, even rental service, post, good cantina. Teamwork with new international employees was working like a charm. Focus on evolve and improve company.

    Cons

    Old German guys interested to get payed his salary without giving the best performance. PM was good when they had previous technical background, what was mostly the case. R&D doing pretty excellent work, validation and integration as well.

    Advice to Management

    Like in war, the best were offered to the Gods. Purification came to late. Old structures still blocking new healthy blood. No service oriented and no continual service improvement at all. If not, try to apply for an job vacancy and you will see what kind of pretty bad interface. 8 years behind, compared with the actual situation.
