    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers, competitive pay, schedule is balanced, great benefits, and pto is always approved

    Cons

    Little room for growth, the company prefers to only excel men due to the culture. Employee suggestions are rarely taken seriously. Management buts heads too much. New roles and openings aren’t announced until they’re already filled

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees who work hard and are dedicated and deserve it

    Pros

    A great group of people in an exciting industry. Nice bi-yearly bonus when profits are up.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with regular employees.. lack of performance reviews that you may be flying blind on quality of work. HR policies are draconian and unforgiving.

    Advice to Management

    This used to be a great company to work for, but it has shifted to consider corporate profits over the well being of employees. Rather than develop long term employees, it easier to terminate them and hire lower cost temps.

    I worked at DMG MORI full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and bonuses when I first started. Hours not too demanding.

    Cons

    They stopped giving bonuses at the end of 2016. Factory is not run well, and is often behind on production, so engineers would often have to work as assemblers for months at a time.

    Pros

    great machines, many talented and hard working people.

    Cons

    Reporting can be a hassle in the field. Too much of an emphasis on logging hours towards jobs, I may be wrong but it seems service managers have pressure on them to make sure service engineers have 100% of their hours logged towards work orders which results in unnecessary forced trips. I believe that more time should be dedicated to training for seasoned engineers while the newer engineers be coupled with the seasoned engineers as much as possible. Instead the apprentice level engineers get all the good stuff while the seasoned guys get , job, job, job, while working mostly by themselves. At least that was my experience, still a solid employer so I'm sure others have had a different experience depending on the office.

    Advice to Management

    Let the service managers do their job without quotas, the job is hard enough. Keep training the veteran guys as well, training is valuable and perk. It's a nice break from the life of constant troubleshooting, installs ,and, repairs. Training is also great for networking and a information swap between veteran engineers. Training also evokes a general sense of community among engineers who spend most of their time working solo.

    I worked at DMG MORI full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people you work with are great.
    Lots of cool machines and engineering being done here

    Cons

    If you want a promotion you are forced to take a test. The test is poorly translated from Japanese. The test is only offered twice a year....except when they cancel it (which they do a lot). No make-ups offered. I actually missed one test because they made me travel to a customer, but didn't offer me a make-up date.
    Tons of red tape for the smallest tasks.
    Employees are made responsible for "reducing costs" but then management makes decisions that cost the company millions of dollars.

    In the past 5 years, I've seen maybe 2 or 3 people actually enjoy their job at this company.
    Forced to use outdated systems, and then punished when the task isn't done fast enough.

    Advice to Management

    You keep saying that you want to work together and accept American culture into your Japanese company....but then you do the exact opposite.

    Pros

    Base compensation is pretty good. If you are interested in only money and benefits, then this is an OK option.

    Endless supply of Overtime Opportunities for extra cash.

    Working in R&D is probably better than work in the Manufacturing Side.

    Co-Workers seem to have good intentions.

    Cons

    Turnover is pretty high. There are only a handful of employees on the Manufacturing Side who have been with the company for more than 5 years.

    Training methods are not standardized or controlled. Combined with the high turnover, training has degraded into a game of Telephone. Production demands also impact training, leaving trainees with less oversight and trainers with higher workloads.

    Reliance on Extremely Old Software that is either Proprietary or Japanese. Limited skill transfer-ability to USA Companies.

    Due to poor planning, Overtime opportunities are frequently required if you are working on the machines.

    Most of the higher managers are Japanese Ex-Pats with noticeably limited English ability. This makes communication very difficult most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more. The people working are actually pretty patient and not very inclined to complain very loudly. Over time unresolved issues will grate on patience and complaints will become more noticeable. Loud complaints will generally develop from quiet complaints that have gone unheard.
