    Pros

    Brose has so many perks, first of all great people to work with. As some colleagues move on to bigger and better opportunities, I see them asking to come back after a few months. Brose tries very hard to keep our group busy with activities, events and sports....many perks here and great benefits too.

    Cons

    It's a very busy work environment with rapid growth, it's both good and bad.....I miss the smaller company it was.

    I have been working at Brose full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people, clean workplace, good vacation and time off policy, home office policy, raises, benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of training, lack of organization on HR (cancelled training sessions because they forgot to book a trainer, no follow up from HR once you're hired, HR takes forever to reply emails)

    Alarmingly understaffed, many projects and customers and not enough people to cover them, people are highly stressed while trying to keep up with the workload.

    Workload distribution, if you're good, be ready to keep up with others lack of capabilities or knowledge, management will expect you to keep up with that plan instead of fixing it or training the rest of the team.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people, improve HR (recruitment, employee follow up, general questions, etc), reassessment is required for team members workload and also compare teams staff and redistribute the current resources.
