    Pros

    Good structure..maybe too structured.Privately owned.Growing in many areas.Benefits are good to have.Good clean building and facilities.

    Cons

    Very overloaded and long hours..no work life balance.
    Feel like they are not very open to employees.
    Generally the atmosphere is good but its political to the extent of being unprofessional.Good growth if your German.
    Certain areas of management need complete overhaul as it feels like they don't care about the employees working for them.
    There is favoritism visible,maybe that's why the turn over rate is getting high.People are not very happy.
    Competitors pay a lot more.

    Advice to Management
