    Pros

    Great benefits including the most vacation days I’ve had at any other company. Really good management that listened to what we had to say. Great company vision and mission. Company took the long term view of things and did not just focus on this month or this year.

    Cons

    The only con is sometimes had to wait a while to get a decision made

    Advice to Management

    Great place to work just be prepared to wait while decisions are being made that involve investing

    Pros

    Good life work balance in general. Good vacation policy. Quite methodical in its processes.

    Cons

    The company clearly favors German employees. There's a culture of favoritism that is clear and blatant. You have more opportunities if you decide to go to Germany but very limited in the US - this is especially true if you work for a global department (i.e. IT).

    If you want to tank your career work there. If you want to advance your career, either be German or leave this company at all costs.
    Company boasts about AAI (Accountability Agility Intrapreneurship) but leadership doesn't really adopt it and especially in Germany there is zero accountability for poor decisions. Toxic environment and blame game is #1 behavior you'll see when things go wrong. Poor leadership overall.. not what it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Put your money where your mouth is.. AAI should apply to all parts of the company especially in Germany.

    There needs to be equal rights for US employees, it really feels like US employees are second class citizens with BI.

    Pros

    Private company which has its benefits over a Public company

    Cons

    Outsourcing and shoring a lot of tasks and responsibilities, at least, within IT that seems to be increasing. Losing a lot of valuable experience by letting internal personnel go.
    Company/employee loyalty is essentially non-existent now even though the company continues to push this as part of their mantra.

    Advice to Management

    Be very careful in losing all internal experience by externalizing work.
