    Pros

    The people in the New Berlin office are very team oriented, supportive and willing to work the long hours necessary to complete projects.

    Cons

    The long hours and frequent travel are causing rapid turnover in the new hires and prompting the long term employees to retire. This is affecting project team continuity and upper managements approach of using the Egypt offshore team and H1b hires to compensate is negatively affecting the morale of those who remain.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the effects on the engineering team before off shoring work to Egypt.

    Pros

    Living in West Michigan. Great place with good schools. Strong religious culture. Lots to do with Lake Michigan so close.

    Cons

    Not open to new ideas at all. Even with proven and documented examples of ways to save money it was an insurmountable task to bring new strategies to fruition.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror and decide whether you are part of the problem or part of the solution and then act for the betterment of the organization

    I worked at Dematic GmbH as a contractor

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities as the company is reinventing itself and growing remarkably in recent years. Strong brand in MHE industry stands out in your CV.

    Cons

    Lots of legacy issues; inflexibility and lack of motivation of some older employees; somewhat stubborn top management; you will certainly need to go beyond standard hours to progress your career there.

    Advice to Management

    Re-consider what is the greatest capital of the company and cherish it. Put all possible effort on bringing full scale manufacturing back to Europe.

    I have been working at Dematic GmbH full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Dematic will bring the best out of its employees, they give them an ocean to swim in and when your drowning they send you a life raft until you can resume swimming. This means you learn quickly and have a lot of responsibility very early on in your job.
    - Great people
    - Great Challenges
    - Great Projects

    Cons

    - Salary is very poor
    - Time away from home is onerous and excessive. Three weeks in a row is not unusual domestically and more internationally.
    - Long work hours with zero overtime payments

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they are worth and invest more in team-building activities.
