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

    Pros

    - stable small-average salary for most employees, small yearly bonuses for managers vs very high benefits for few "top" managers
    - annual salaries inflation revision at 6-15% (not for all)
    - average medical, life and traveller insurances
    - tranings in Lausanne, Lyon or other sites of the Group are possible

    Cons

    - more and more managers with unclear functions hunting for figures over few hard-workers
    - very bad ambiance, be ready to be slandered, especially by Swiss employees
    - lots of customers dissatisfied by service
    - many employees were fired unexpectadly at 1 day (some right after returning from business trips)

    Stop live in fear and spread it to people you work with.
