    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Semi-Flexible working hours (Can flex first two hours of the day)
    -let you keep Frequent Traveler points (there will be lots of these)

    Cons

    -Long Travel times without any compensation besides daily food allowances, hotel and car
    -You will not be promoted, unless you are from Europe
    -They expect you to be at a customer site for 60-80+ hours a week when you are on the road and then you are required to work the normal 40-45+ in the office after you return, even if you worked the weekend
    -People only get promotions after 10-15 years of working long hours for the company
    -You will watch younger people from Switzerland get promoted over USA people
    -Company DOES NOT care about your personal life, They will send you away for weeks on hours of notice
    -They only care about making more money
    -Loud working environment, no cubicles, just pods.
    -Everyone is a salesperson, they keep saying you should be amazed with the company and you a privileged to work here.

    I would rather work at "Dilberts" company than at Buhler.

    Advice to Management

    Please change your management style, you will have a hard time getting people under the age of 30 if you keep treating employees as "expendable" resources.

    I worked at Buhler Industries full-time

    Pros

    Interesting industry to be in. Decent benefits but could be better. Sorry but I don't have much else positive to say here.

    Cons

    Terrible upper management. Russian group has taken over the company and are running it into the ground. Employees are treated like crap/ numbers. Only negative feedback - try rewarding your employees instead of calling them out on every little detail. The company cannot produce orders in time, leaving customers angry.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating people like numbers. Stop being so paranoid that your employees are trying to screw you and let them do their jobs. In North America, you will not retain employees if you continue to treat them the way you do.

    I worked at Buhler Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has potential to grow, and there is potential to move up in the company. The pay for my position was excellent.

    Cons

    This company is stuck in 1970s business practices, and are very opposed to changes in how things are done even when they realize their approach hasn't worked in years. Various departments are given contradictory objectives and project goals, leading to in-fighting between sites, departments and co-workers. Sufficient resources are not usually available and the infrastructure of the company is crumbling, making it very frustrating to try to accomplish anything. Most often, there is not sufficient time given to do the jobs properly, forcing staff to cut corners, which then creates new problems down the road.

    Company policy and culture is shockingly backwards. Very poor IT department and support. Very poor benefit package. Management seem to have a very lowly view of staff in general.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize the company along your objectives with a written and published job title/organization chart which clearly outlines who is responsible for what. Support your team with proper time and resources instead of treating everyone with suspicion. Set reasonable goals, and hold people accountable for doing their share. Put an end to the practice of excluding stakeholders from key meetings or decisions. Consider new ways of accomplishing your business - there are literally millions of dollars of savings sitting in the minds of your staff, but you ignore them.
