    I have been working at Carl Zeiss full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hard to think of any. Used to be a great place to work 20 years ago.

    Cons

    Management disrespectful. Many favorites which are the only ones that get promoted. So much dead weight and they remain here. Many changes were supposed to take place. The only change was a number of seasoned and well trained employees were fired. Nothing is fixed. Meetings and agendas to fool the parent company. No moving forward. A lot of backstabbing by management. Too bad. There is such low morale. Nobody wants to be here. We are all afraid to get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your management. Company being destroyed by lack of employee committment. Very poor management.

    Pros

    Benefits that's all need people who have respect to others

    Cons

    Discrimination, if you look a certain way they point you out quick dosent matter what you know.

    Advice to Management

    Respect employees no matter if there janitors to just operaters. Help each other just because you have a certain title dosent mean your royalty.

    Pros

    The team at ZEISS provides support in many aspects of the job like immediate compensation of travel expenses and a hardware and technical support staff that prioritizes the service team. The team at headquarters will do all that they can to ease any trouble out in the field.

    Cons

    Policies seem to be implemented without much thought; the service team seems to be a test group for certain policies. In addition, the support team can seem limited at certain times.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise policies/ practices be established and followed-though without having multiple cases occurring at one time; to set a more established set of guidelines and to ensure that when moving forward it is sure.

    Pros

    They have a great bonus and benefits.

    Cons

    They have a pretty strict schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, chances are they know what's best. Well, considering they actually do the job day in and day out.

    I worked at Carl Zeiss full-time

    Pros

    The business is growing very rapidly. Customer facing employees should have a stable future as long as they remain customer focused. The benefits are good and pay is fair. The product quality is good.

    Cons

    Management has lost their customer focus by replacing all entry level field service managers, who had worked their way up the ranks, with higher degreed managers. These business managers do not have the reputation with the customers or current field technicians. The new managers are inexperienced and appear will be more focused on managing paperwork than people and customers.

    Advice to Management

    Re-focus on providing exceptional customer service and improving the customer service processes. Utilize your senior field staff better.
