    Pros

    Solid, stable company.
    Always moving forward, growing markets and opportunities.
    Better than average compensation, including benefits
    Size,scope and breadth of company makes movement and development of talent more likely

    Cons

    German-based company, with a European mindset (which sometimes conflicts with American methods and practices)
    The global business is clearly centralized in Germany, just as it is with American-owned and based companies. This can sometimes make for issues when styles and practices don't match. Europe and America do have differing philosophies on work in certain areas, some better, some not.

    Advice to Management

    Generally, management is very good, especially on the European side and leadership.
