    Pros

    Compatible salary, good benefits, lots of good, smart colleagues

    Cons

    In R+D most of the executive leadership is smart, committed, and supportive of staff. The R_D COO is very german and does not value US colleagues. For a promotion you need to be German or move to Germany

    Advice to Management

    Make some changes in R+D and more staff will stay
