    "HR lacks integrity and does not act with honesty"

    I have been working at DMG MORI full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great managers, colleagues, pay, benefits, and vacation time.

    Cons

    HR lacks integrity and does not act with honesty. They don’t care about little white lies and think if “it’s legal, it’s ethical”. HR tries to govern and run this company with their constantly changing policies, but leads with a “do as I say, not as I do” manner. They tell employees that S7 exam is required to get into leadership positions, but you’ll hear that some people were being promoted without even taking the... exam. HR also shows strong favoritism and unfair treatment. If you are friends with HR, you can get away with anything. If they don’t like you, you will be shunned, bullied, and pushed out of the company.

    Advice to Management

    People with integrity do what they said they were going to do and don’t change the truth to justify their behavior. Fix HR department or this will filter down into other key staff positions and you’ll continue to fill the same positions over and over again. Get someone with knowledge about employment law and investigate all employee relations cases to restore DMG MORI’s image.

    Pros

    Insurance and a paycheck - that's all.

    Cons

    ZERO communication. You will come into work to find you're in a new department, your manager has changed, or your job title has changed - without any notice! It should be common sense that this would create panic and uncertainty about job security. This is why so many people are resigning. You are expected to work at all times - be prepared to work 60 hours a week, on weekends, and during paid time off. If you... are exempt, they will work you to death so they don't have to increase headcount. All Japan cares about is headcount, not the big picture. Many managers have favorites and display unprofessional and vicious behavior. Management will retaliate against you for speaking up about unethical practices. You will never receive any form of appreciation. Your peers will get away with unfinished projects because they lie about it or even better, they rush and make catastrophic mistakes that take more time to correct than it would have to spend the necessary time on it in the first place (if you're a favorite, you can get away with anything). If you are honest and put in the necessary time in to ensure high quality work, you will be severely punished and threatened for not working fast enough. DMG MORI prefers quantity or quality, every time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't punish honest, hard working employees that produce high quality work because your ego can't handle it. Don't punish employees for bringing concerns to your attention. Investigate all concerns, whether you believe the validity or not. The HR department is corrupt, this is partially due to the lack of staff, mostly due to 4 remaining rotten apples. This would be obvious if employees weren't scared into... silence. Clear out the current HR staff and bring back the ones that left. Executives, implement an anonymous survey on engagement and management feedback for employees to complete - WITHOUT the HR department's involvement. This will provide a lot of insight as to what is actually going on with the employees. Have an outside agency come in and investigate the HR department prior to a government agency fining the company thousands of dollars for not complying. Treating expatriates differently than other races when making employment decisions, is discrimination and it is illegal - this needs to stop. When you promote men to manage a department they have zero knowledge or experience in, instead of women with years of demonstrated experience and quality output, you are discriminating - this needs to stop.

    I worked at DMG MORI full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The name Mori Seiki for legacy customers.

    Cons

    The name DMG. Turnover---seems company likes to fire/hire middle management every year and provides no consistency. Company has no loyalty to the employees. All jobs are unstable.

    Advice to Management

    Company has no clear goals or direction. Thinking you can live off the MORI name from the past will not work. All this talk about partnering with customers and trying to be their advocate is BS. Just when customers get comfortable with you, you like to throw changes into the mix. Also, stop having i-Days/Sales Meetings requiring us to be away on Mother's Day, do it on Father's Day, some of us have families which... come first over any job.

    Pros

    Great products and technology. Good benefits and nice colleagues

    Cons

    The US organization is basically led by HR which for this type of industry doesn't make any sense. In fact they keep changing the organization every month without having a clear strategy for the future. Too many ''politician'' inside the company

    USA changes directions too much. Too much change in structure and leadership. HR is a joke, gives people 24 hrs to decide if they want to move or be terminated.

    Pros

    Co-workers are great and good health benefits

    Cons

    The US executives are a joke. HR is worse. They will make changes to policies without notice (pto and bonuses) told employees last summer we were moving to the Southside of Chicago and nothing else has been mentioned. The accounting system was down for 5 months and upper management didn’t care because most of them have no clue how to use it. My review is for people looking to work at DMG MORI, not the... executives or HR because they could care less about what employees say. Unless you are desperate for a job stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Please treat all employees the same. Don’t pretend you are an ethical company when the same rules don’t apply for every one.

    Pros

    Cant think of any pros

    Cons

    Worst company I have ever worked for. It's like being in high school, unless you are the cool kid or kiss butt you'll never get anywhere. If you have a different opinion then theirs or questions anything, you are an outcast. The HR department has no background in employment law and should be seriously looked out for how they handle ER cases. Do not recommend this company

    Advice to Management

    Get new management and an experienced ER team.

    Workload was heavy. It is owned by Japanese and they expect you to work long hours. Not so much work-life balance there.
