I worked at Robert Bosch LLC as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

I interned at BOSCH RTC as a researcher. I was given a high level problem area and was able to define and run my own research project for the 3 months I was there. It was a very positive experience overall during which I learned a lot about applied research. The other employees there were very helpful and knowledgeable and provided valuable guidance.

Cons

There was concern within the organization when I left about the reorganization of the research lab and a renewed focus on research projects that could be pushed to market in a shorter time frame. While I think this sort of research is important, I think more basic research is necessary to drive true innovation.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Robert Bosch LLC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are pretty much no pros at this time in the Bosch Diagnostics or any other Location in Bosch NA

    Cons

    - The company is full of bad placement and cronies
    - People from the Germany office get promoted and are very bad leaders for reasons clear. They are inexperienced in the NA market and have barely any management experience, let alone product management experience
    - There is a lot of stepping on toes, especially from the German managers that were promoted
    - The company is buying other companies and running them into the ground
    - No one realizes that the diagnostics industry is a software engineering discipline and software engineering is an unknown in this organization
    - There is no vision/mission and barely any values
    - The culture sucks and there are absolutely no career opportunities. I have worked here for 12 years and after all the hard work, I am not even considered worth anything

    Keep away. I would not recommend this company to my enemies!

    Advice to Management

    - Replace everyone from the VP upwards and hire people that know how to run software companies
