    I have been working at Beumer full-time

    Pros

    They lure you with excellent pay so you make the switch, then get rid of you as fast as they hired you . I saw them hire and fire at least 10-15 employees.

    Cons

    No one cares about you doing a good job, most times it will go unnoticed.

    I worked at Beumer full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I my co-workers where very nice and supportive

    Cons

    The company is in total disarray. They where a local small company but a German company wanting to sell baggage system in the USA has bought them to get there foot in the door here. The problem come from the Fact this company has bought a ton of other companies and had too manies iron in the fire. As to this the fact the Corp. is trying to micro manage everything and can't seem to get anything to together. They refuse to allow for new resource, they don't have corp policies posted or even developed. No one seems to know anything about what is going on. More then once I was told people didn't know answers to basic question and when they did give answer it wasn't uncommon to get the wrong answer.
    But the worse part is that they don't like anyone who does ask question, even if you need to, to get the job done. It like they just want it to magically all just work out.

    Advice to Management

    Actually manage, or and maybe get some people in who have experience with merging companies they really could walk you through the growing pains with great success.

    "Worst place to ever work"

    Star Star Star Star Star

    Pros

    30 min lunch break, leaving exactly at 5, Fridays, Holidays and vacation.

    Cons

    Too much Nepotism. Only the Germans and there select few can enjoy the European benefits package while getting paid more than the Americans, and having the fancy job titles. In order to reap some of the perks you have to be on your knees which is how most of the dummies survive and strive in a company so ridden with bull crap.

    Advice to Management

    Human resources needs to just stay that a Human resource instead of being embedded in every single department and decision maker of the simplest things. Focus on improving the culture of the company instead of how to control every single aspect. Treat all employees even non management staff fairly and learn to be honest and not biased.

    Pros

    People in US are very nice.
    Location in Somerset is easy to get to (traffic can be rough on 287)
    No overtime ever needed.

    Cons

    Everything is controlled in Germany.
    You must check in with Germany to get everything approved
    You can not make decisions and implement them without the OK from Germany
    IT department in US does not have access to do anything. They must send requests to Germany to do the most basic tasks, like loading Windows on a laptop.
    IT department in Germany is very slow and not very skilled. E-mail servers are down all the time.
    Took a month to get a login after start date.
    Very status level concious. Management in US and Germany are constantly reminding staff that they are the UPPER management and the rest of the staff is not.
    Only place I have ever worked that you call people by Mr. or Ms.
    Sales are OK, but costs to implement are too high.
    Equipment and parts have to be verified in Germany and then shipped to US. Costs are just too high.
    The "Just-Do-It" attitude that is widely accepted is the USA, is frowned upon and discouraged by Germany.
    You must go through the proper channels to get anything done. If you are a staff engineer, for example, you may never contact a manager in Germany. Your US manager must contact them.
    Matrix management will never work here.

    Advice to Management

    For the US company figure out a way to break away from Germany. People in the USA are very competent, but the Germany HQ is killing the progressive thinking of the people. More than 90% would leave if they had another offer.
