    I have been working at DMG MORI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people with a strong broad product portfolio. Company is Growing very fast. Nice showrooms with products to actually demo.

    Cons

    Lots of meetings, conference calls and paperwork. Workflows stink. Lots of under utilized space in my tech center, but on the bright side room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Share more information with your employees and trust them to get the job done.

    Pros

    Big company. Opportunities for advancement if you can pass their S level exams (company’s history, basic machining knowledge, quality assurance,etc). Good benefits package.

    Cons

    Some leaders have the wrong attitude towards workers. Different culture. Overtime but simply for working long hours not for working efficiently.

    Pros

    Experience in short term is good.

    Cons

    US IT management and infrastructure perpetuate a culture of backstabbing. It's awful.

    Advice to Management

    Clear the deck of both management and infrastructure - CST (vendor) does all the work infrastructure claims to. And get a competent manager who values hard work over office politics and can run the shop on the lean staff DMG provides, perhaps someone who can suggest tools that help the it run agile. There are some good people in the rank and file, but management is mismanaged and infrastructure keeps being underhanded and backstabbing.

    Pros

    Benefits is probably the only thing that is good here

    Cons

    A place that makes you feel like you're trapped and never appreciated. Horrible atmosphere, seems like you're in high school. The CEO of the company was extremely unprofessional and had an affair with one the administrators and they walked around the hallways flirting. The management is horrible, they don't have a structure and keep changing. The worst place to work for, I put my heart into this job only to realize nothing at the end was worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Please fix your management, the only reason why the company is doing okay is because of the engineering of the machines other than that, I'm scared of its future.

    Pros

    Since there's absolutely no organization, you can work on, with, or operate anything you can see without any training credentials. That means, if someone teaches you you can learn and get experience doing a number of new and exciting things.

    Cons

    This company is a waste of time. If you plan on moving up, then plan on moving on. This place rewards good performance by keeping it hostage and preventing you from moving up because as long as you're there they look good.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and join the marines.

    I worked at DMG MORI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    • Great place to work for a resume boast
    • PTO/Sick days
    • relaxed environment

    Cons

    Honestly don’t look for this place to be a long term experience, just learn what you can and keep your career options open. The company usually sends in current employees from Japan to the United States on a work visa. They sometimes get married, and never return to home to Japan. Which can lead to “chain migration” which is a HUGE problem our country is suffering from.
    The company stresses the issue that you’ll have to adopt the Japanese work ethics, but all the while you’re not in Japan! You’re in America! So it should be the other way around! The Japanese employees are seemingly afraid of black men, and often don’t socialize with American employees at all, so there’s a slight division. Communication is a huge problem with the language barrier being present, which can lead to a misconception of character.
    Don’t bother HR with your problems. You’re just a replaceable person, and that’s how you’ll get treated so handle your problems with a clear outlook. Also there’s a atmosphere of anxiety that everyone suffers from, so employees are often paranoid, which can lead to playground like drama.
    In conclusion just stay focused on the thought of a resume boast. This will NOT be a company you’ll retire from.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to speak English
    And stop being so cowardly of Americans

    Pros

    Very intelligent colleagues and good product that customers appreciate. Salary is generally competitive for this industry and benefits are solid (although they have recently eroded for cost saving measures)

    Cons

    Group CEO vision changes daily. Employees are not treated with respect and trust. Tag lines such as "thrive, not just survive" are said to who will listen yet not one measurable action to improve staff satisfaction and engagement has been implemented.

    What they sell you when you interview is not close to what they deliver. Old School and Traditional Japanese culture makes communication difficult at best. Motivated employees will constantly feel undervalued.

    If you want to collect a paycheck and make lots of connections in the industry with great manufacturing shops, this is a good stop for your resume. If you want to do something special - look elsewhere. Your hard work, enthusiasm, and desire to take the company forward will not be recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking at the face of your immediate supervisor or trying to guess what top management wants you to do.

    Don't fire managers who put in years and years of effort for the employee and customer - they were the main reason most of us stayed there.
