    I have been working at Anton Paar USA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have been with Anton Paar USA since August 2018. Although my time with the company has been short, I have been impressed with the level of care shown to its employees. If you are willing to work hard, you will be able to see great growth within your career at Anton Paar. I appreciate that the management group is willing to invest a significant amount of training time into each employee to ensure their success in their...

    Cons

    No cons at the moment. I appreciate the true open door policy shown within the organization. Management wants to hear your feedback in order to make improvements. If they cannot make your suggested improvements immediately, they do communicate to you the justification and will work to implement if possible. Great company.

    Advice to Management

    Excited to see the continued growth of the organization. I am excited to see the regional office model.

    I have been working at Anton Paar USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic products, world class sales and technical training, very good managers and a kind, positive culture, pay seems good from my perspective, promotions from within are common. This is a good company. There is a strong focus on doing things the right way and doing right by customers to create win/win outcomes on both sides of a deal. Employees are valued by managers and peers.

    Cons

    Not many. There is red tape in business processes at times. Also, if you come in without much experience in some of the more technical product lines, you'll need to work very hard to get up to speed with what customers will demand. It's doable (and worth in my opinion) but work life balance can suffer for a while when starting out.

    I have been working at Anton Paar USA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have been working for Anton Paar "The Americas" for 4 months now. Within the last 4 months I have had the blessing to grow and develop further in a way I never thought it would be possible. I believe that if you work hard, are committed, flexible, and down to earth, you have the chance to grow at Anton Paar quickly, to work independently and to learn not just professionally but also personally day by day. Apart of a...

    Cons

    In order to have adequate coverage in the office, AP requires employees to be at the office at least from 9 am to 4 pm. However, if something unexpected happens, there is flexibility with your manager.

    I have been working at Anton Paar USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    With the development of the regional office structure, there is a lot of room for growth now than ever before. I work for a regional office and it has been a really awesome experience. The regions are a great way to bond with co-workers and really learn the value of working as a team. I also have been able to learn way more about each role which has been an added bonus! My experience with Anton Paar has been nothing...

    Cons

    The only cons would be as someone else said you do have to be in the office from 10am to 4pm, however your manager can approve leaving earlier if necessary!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the growth opportunities coming, it gives everyone goals and something to work towards!

    I worked at Anton Paar USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Anton Paar provides employees with world-class training, both in technical areas and sales training. This adds incredible value to AP as an employer. Employees receive in-depth training upon starting and at regular intervals throughout tenure. Training consists of role-specific standardized efforts from HQ and then regional training from the office. Training, education and opportunity provided by Anton Paar equip employees...

    With a strong focus on growth goals, change in roles and responsibilities may happen fast.

    Pros

    Dear Reviewer of "Just OK", thank you for your feedback. I work for Anton Paar for a few years as well; I'm not in sales and I'm not Austrian. Let me disagree with your statement that there is no chance to be promoted if you're not in sales. Last few years we see regular specialists to be promoted to managers positions in admin/warehouse department. Also, vast majority of managers are Americans, so your statement is...

    I worked at Anton Paar USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    work environment, free food sometimes, "common" people who actually worked were very pleasant.

    Cons

    Honestly, despite what the response will be, there really is a favoritism that goes on in the company. If you aren't European or in management then no one really looks at you as value or thanks you. Sure if your in sales and you make your numbers you will get appreciation but if you are in service, admin, warehouse, support, etc. then forget it. Compensation is low. They tell you its high but once leaving and seeing...

    Advice to Management

    Really search yourselves to find the good in everyone and not just focus on your numbers but focus on the PEOPLE and things that will add VALUE back to the company. Don't deflect on what people say negative about the company and don't take it personal learn from it and change it.

    I worked at Anton Paar USA full-time

    Pros

    Work from home, company car

    Cons

    Socialism at its best. If you aren't Austrian they don't trust you. They read your emails, scrutinize your expenses down to every penny, and have the worst managers I've ever dealt with. All you need to do is look at the number of open reqs they have.

    Advice to Management

    My advice won't matter because the CEO, who is Austrian, knows best. He wouldn't take one piece of advice from an American.
