Strong core business and competences.

Cons

Start-up type businesses next to core business with less focus.

Advice to Management

Plan acquisitions more based on technology gaps rather than shareholder satisfaction.

    money caw of Hexagon Group
    everything is just sales driven
    the salary is below the average
    no perspective to grow
    very limited innovation
    very poor communication among teams
    90% of the technical leaders are out of touch with the projects and absolutely irresponsible
    very overcrowded middle management
    very old and outdated technologies at least for software
    Austrian mafia controls the company
    the location is a remote area
    the people are encouraged only to execute no to think on finding a solution for the problem, otherwise
    it will bring to many headache for management which wants to live at 4PM every day.
    take the job only if you want to remain stuck there forever

    Advice to Management

    complete reorganize the company to reduce the huge bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Lots holidays for your own hobbies. Friendly and international community.
    Always have a chance to learn.
    Centre of Europe, can visit other countries very easily.

    Cons

    Nothing much to do near the company. All small villages around here. Nearest bigger town is 30 minute away. Can't really join international seminars. You have to learn German or even swiss German to have good relationships with the locals. Otherwise, all your friends are others like you.

    Advice to Management

    I think the management in general is pretty good. however, Leica is now under Hexagon management pressure, sometimes the decision isn't the same as the Leica traditional way.
