Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Interesting industry, visionary strategy by the CEO, you get to use 3d printers whenever you want... Don't really have to do any work...

Cons

Worst execution I have ever seen In a company... Horrible morale across the company, nobody trusts anyone, everyone overworked so they can't help you, horrible quality products, the list could go on...

Advice to Management

There needs to be a level of managers below Abe that is fully empowered to manage their part of the business. Don't try to control everything from the top - put a good team in place and coach and support them...

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You get to work with interesting technology and smart people. Their products have the potential to change a lot of industries.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't respect the workers. Record profits, meager raises. Laying off key workers during acquisition so the books look good.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking so short term, take real time to plan, trust your employees want to the right thing and stop handicapping them with ridiculous schedules and tight budgets.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Möglicherweise geht es wieder aufwärts, da Abe Reichental nicht mehr CEO ist. Die Zeiten 1995 - 2000 sind jedoch entgülig vorbei, als die deutsche GmbH noch eigenständig war.

    Cons

    Management in Amerika. Reiner Kontrollwahn. Eigenständiges Arbeiten ist kaum möglich. Aus Fehlern lernen ebenso nicht. Da auf Fehler negativ reagiert wird. Oftmals mit Entlassung. Karriere nur durch Beziehungen, nicht durch Leistung.

    Advice to Management

    Der deutschen GmbH wieder Selbständigkeit geben. Das bedeutet halt auch, das USA mal zugeben muss, das die "Deutschen" auch was können, bzw. es auch besser können. Das war ja auch das Problem, dass das USA- Management die Kontrolle wollte: Neid und Mißgunst, dass Deutschland bessere Zahlen lieferte.
