Pros

Experience is a plus on CV, as far as Oerlikon is a welknown company (at least in Switzerland) and dealing with high tech products. There is some good people there that you can learn a lot from. Very differentiated segments of business, which gives the chance to learn a lot about dos and don'ts at corporation life.

Cons

Difficult to mangage corporation tasks within subs, as far as quite decentralized management. Segments are not always cooperative with HQ.
Huge fluctuation of personnel in HQ and also Segments makes work difficult, as far as even mid term knowledge is often gone.
Finally, extrem cuts of headcounts lead not rarely to quick and dirty work by the remaining ones, and huge fees to external consultants...

Advice to Management

please strongly rethink your support, compensation and motivation schemes in order to avoid loosing even more people with valuable knowledge of the company. Even if in the short term it sounds "efficient" to reduce headcount, in the mid and long term you are throwing paid for and built up knowledge away!

    Pros

    Spannende Industrie und interessante Produkte, klare Strategie wie es mit dem Unternehmen weitergehen soll, Arbeitsort ist gut gelegen (Nähe Zürich)

    Cons

    Viele Personalwechsel, Projekte verzögern sich dadurch unnötig, Silodenken in vielen Geschäftsbereichen und -einheiten ist einem gemeinsamen Ziel im Weg

    Advice to Management

    Konstanz wäre jetzt wichtig, vor allem in der Strategie und im Personal. Die vielen Wechsel fördern das Silodenken, welches überwunden werden muss
