    I worked at Robert Bosch LLC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Leadership communicates state of the business well to employees.
    Stable company, job security.
    Opportunities to work with new and innovative technologies.
    Some dynamic and creative managers and directors who value and develop their employees, find ways to be effective despite the limitations of the bureaucracy and Germano-centric culture.
    Some good managers who give you clear, direct feedback on your work.
    Diverse workforce.
    Has started promoting more Americans into leadership of the regional organization.
    International work environment.
    Opportunities for international assignments (after you've worked here a few years).

    Cons

    You're probably not going to get the chance to design or work with engineers who have designed products from the ground up. You're pretty much always taking a platform developed in Germany and adapting it for a U.S. customer.
    In the automotive industry, meaning they are subject to the ups and downs of that industry.
    Advancement opportunities appear limited for non-Germans.
    Large, slow-moving bureaucracy. Very process-oriented, and you're rarely made aware of why a given process works the way it does.
    Highest leadership sets ambitious and probably achievable goals, but the actual execution of changes needed to reach these goals is not always optimal. Suggests leadership is out of touch with the ground organization.
    You truly feel that you are working for a "wholly owned subsidiary." That is the U.S. company is subsidiary to the German one.
    Bottom-up feedback seemingly has no effect. Attention given to candid employee feedback is mostly lip service.
    Senior leadership of the global organization is very non-diverse (white, mostly-German males).
    Automotive focused. Although it has a substantial non-automotive presence, the main focus is on auto. Company processes come from automotive; don't necessarily make sense in other business areas.
    The "Technical Expert" path for engineers who want to advance, but not move into general management positions, is not well-established in the U.S.

    Advice to Management

    You'll never acquire the best, most talented employees if, when they get here, they don't feel they have what they need to succeed. Note that people are open to change, but people are not open to being changed. You can't tell your associates that they need to be more flexible when the corporate culture has a strong sense of inflexibility. Robert Bosch LLC will always be a company is quite stable and does well, but it has not and will not reach its full potential without significant organizational and cultural changes.
