    I have been working at Dematic full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Dematic's industry is booming, our technology helps companies like Amazon, Frito-Lay, Walmart to get things done. It is really amazing to see all the pieces of a warehouse working, the conveyors, the sorters, the AGVs, the multi-shuttles, etc. If you like technology and innovation this is the place to be. People are nice and easy-going. It is a fast-paced environment and you never get bored.

    Cons

    This company is not perfect (which one is it?), it suffers from the same fast-paced environment we live in. Since we need to get things done, sometimes we don't see areas of improvement or ways of streamlining processes. The age of the population is mixed, which is good but also sometimes doesn't help, you may find young colleagues that want to conquer the world with bright ideas and, on the other hand a guy that...

    Advice to Management

    While the KION acquisition was OK, we are far from being fully integrated and this doesn't really help. It only exacerbates the 'silo' mentality. Communicate! Communicate! Communicate! Satellite offices are in total oblivion. We are in a globalized industry, please stop being so Grand Rapids centric. Expand your horizons, open you eyes, there is life beyond Michigan! To the new CEO, please shake this place. Challenge...

      I have been working at Dematic full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Very nice people to work with. Great teams.

      Cons

      1. Lots of travel. 2. When onsite, people are working too many long hours. 3. In certain departments of Dematic where % of immigrants are higher, general feeling is that they are over worked and under paid. People think they are being exploited due to immigration rules. 4. Discrimination between different functions on similar teams in terms of salary is very evident.

      Advice to Management

      Better distribution of Departmental hierarchy, which helps departments to function independently and more efficiently in their specific functions.

      I have been working at Dematic full-time

      Pros

      Sr technical people who have still stayed have a plethora of technical skills and knowledge.

      Cons

      Poor treatment from the management and significant low pay compared to market.

      Advice to Management

      - Facilitate your existing tech people with good benefits and pay rather than hiring new people who have zero domain knowledge and pay them more than the people who have stayed and contributed to the success of the company. - Do not wait till you have attrition to start making improvements. - Take feed back from the senior staff. - Give more prominence to tech staff and their needs. - Company should help the employee...

      I worked at Dematic full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Most people were very focused, hard working, but the culture was friendly and laid back. The company is full of a number of very talented technical people.

      Cons

      Like any large organization, it can be difficult to navigate the multiple lays of people and positions to try to get to the proper resources you need.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to strive for transparency and cooperation.

      I have been working at Dematic full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Mostly large jobs with longer term stays which means less frequent travel. However, you may get stuck in an undesirable city.

      Cons

      Culture favoritism, reverse of what you may expect.

      Advice to Management

      Make deadlines more realistic through preparation, the right number of people on the job and having the materials on site.
