    I worked at Dematic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The technology built here is really great. Witnessing how a distribution center comes to life is breathtaking. However, Dematic is not the only one that does this.

    Cons

    If you are not white, blonde or something of the sort, this is not the place for you. Probably this is the reason why they hired an Italian as CEO, to bring some 'balance' to the equation. Senior management is focused on getting their bonuses, their fat checks and their travels than considering opinions that are outside of their 'circle of trust' Mid-level managers are just positions to keep the individual contributors in check. Everyone is running in different directions instead of creating synergies and common solutions. Lack of guidance, lack of trust, lack of growth is what I experienced working here. All the years dedicated to Dematic were a waste of time. The worst thing that happened was the acquisition by the German company. Things were messy and they got messier. It is a toxic environment, the culture is dog eat dog. It is frustrating and you will waste your career here. If you are not white, poor of you, you will not be considered for anything.
