    I worked at Bosch Security full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only positive comments I have- was I did receive a 4% raise due to my performance and benefits met market standards

    Cons

    Warning: to any educated, successful, driven, intelligent business woman- if you are looking at being treated as a professional and seen as an equal with your male colleagues and with a predominately male management team- Bosch is not the place for you to hang your hat. It is the quintessential "good ole boys" club and the level of sexism is unlike any other global organization I've been apart of. The wage gap between myself and my fellow male colleagues with the exact same job, responsibilities, years of working experience, and in some cases even lower levels of education was at minimum $3,000 (validated by HR). Being a consistent top performer not only in my team, but nationally ranked, I was hoping for advancement and recognition. Instead I was told by multiple management personnel that I would not be given the same opportunities as my male counterparts due to me being a female. I'm not joking. I repeat- I'm not joking. This discrimination still exists. It is alive,well and very embedded into the Bosch culture. So in fact, that they had to institute an internal club named "Women @ Bosch" to bring awareness of the equality that SHOULD be prevalent in their corporate culture but is far from reality. This organization is living in the 1950's - not 2017.

    If you're seeking room for advancement, recognition, and respectful communication- Bosch will not be a good cultural fit for any successful driven females.

    I have been working at Bosch Security full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In general there is a good worklife balance. There is also a corporate wellness program. There is optional remote working or e-commuting for some positions.

    Cons

    Compensation is below average, benefits are standard or just below average. It is a large organization and there are issues with dealing with central HR or other central services. Not every manager prioritizes employee development or training.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more emphasis on prioritizing employee training and development. It shouldn't feel like I have to fight and scrap every time I want to improve myself and become a better employee.

    Look up the Bosch core values in the company web page!
