    I worked at Dräger full-time

    Pros

    Products are usually best in class. Emphasis on quality over price. Strong product development and innovation. Generally good collaboration between the field, US operations and HQ in Germany. Strong ethics. PTO average for industry. Insurance better than average.

    Cons

    Being Euro/German based company tries to infuse European standards in the US market. Long lead times with respect to product development and service.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    No incentives to work harder. No appreciation for lower level employees. I have been with the company for 3 years. I started at $14.75/hr, 3 years later I'm at $15.13/hr. 3 years and only $0.38 pay increase. THAT'S 12 CENTS A YEAR.

    Advice to Management

    Take much better care of your lower level employees. They are the foundation of the company. Without a good foundation you have NOTHING. Let's be honest, we come to work for a paycheck. If that paycheck can't even keep up with the cost of living, we will have to seek employment elsewhere.

    I worked at Dräger full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are great. Lots of people have been with company a long time. Salaries and benefits are okay. Flexible with work at home options.

    Cons

    Global marketing is a mess which effects the regional marketing. Competent long standing employees are reporting to inexperienced managers who don't have a clue about their jobs. Money is being wasted on things that don't need to be done and no one cares about anyone's opinions. Website is a disaster. Leadership at the VP level is weak and ineffective and won't help drive market share.

    Advice to Management

    Get some effective leaders in that employees can respect and emulate.

    Pros

    Good compensation, decent benefits. Lots of long term employees.

    Cons

    Regional Management (especially sales) is myopic. Revenue and sales have been trending down for a few years. A sure takeover target. Monitoring business is in shambles.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your front line people.
