    I worked at Carl Zeiss Meditec full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefit is good. Engineering force is fairly dedicated and very low turn over rate until recently.If you are looking for a stable working environment with solid benefits, this is the place to be.
    Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    The company seemed to going into a significant restructuring activities. Slimming down R&D and MFG and focusing more on sales and services.

    Advice to Management

    It will be a big waste of talent if the management really wants to close down R&D and outsource all the manufacturing to overseas.

    Good people, bart accessible, great products. These products really help customers to have healthier eyes and there are a lot of people at Zeiss who want to help the customer.

    Cons

    Chaotic, lack of training, leadership, ans communication. Endless meetings where nothing ever seems decided. The pay is on the low end as well. I wish I'd looked harder elsewhere.

    Pros

    Learned quite a lot in my own internship, was exposed to different facets of the department that I worked under. Exposure to the industry was also a plus, allowed greater insight into the scheme of things.

    Cons

    Didn't always feel super integrated into the company - maybe as a result of my short internship assignment, but didn't ever feel like I got to know the company past my own department.

    Pros

    The company is doing good work, in the interest of society. There is an illusion of technical dominance which helps people agree that being technically dominant is a good value.

    Cons

    Management is aloof from customers and thus we don't have much visibility of customer needs. Actual engineering capabilities probably are 10 years behind the times.

    Advice to Management

    Help us connect with customers so we can get a sense of what they need and value. Make it a company value to actually help employees grow and advance their careers.
