Other Employee Reviews for Robert Bosch

  1. "Great benifit package, but 12 rotating shift bad for family life and schooling."

    Pros

    Good hourly pay, good insurance packages.

    Cons

    12 hour rotating shifts leave you too exhausted for family life and you can't attend classes because your days off off change every week. I thought Robert Bosch was the 1st to introduce the 8 hour work day in Germany to allow his employees to enjoy time with their families.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees are usually not looking for another job. Exhausted employees missing their families probably are (looking for a more suitable job). Consider the money you are spending on training new employees that end up leaving after a few months of 12 hour rotating shifts versus running straight 1st, 2nd, and 3rd shifts. I haven't heard one operator say anything positive about 12 hour shifts. You need to change before there are only trainees with no one with experience to train them.


  2. "No respect for the lower class"

    Pros

    Strong, global company
    Ethical dealings with customers and suppliers

    Cons

    Little to no advancement opportunities for support roles, basically you will not advance if you are not an engineer.
    Management shows no concern about developing associates for advancement. The yearly review process is a joke, just another piece of paper that is filed and never looked at again.
    Management is more concerned with their own careers and have no incentive and no desire to help their associates.
    Recent layoffs were unnecessary and served only to preserve the bonuses for those lucky enough to get bonuses.
    Associates are treated as simple resources, that can be replaced. Human Resources should be more concerned with the Human aspect rather than the resource aspect.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the associates who have no voice, mid-level managers actually have little knowledge of the needs or desires of their associates. Also, try to realize that a culture of privilege exists at the company, that senior managers at locations consider themselves part of a special club, with many closed door meetings and decisions made without acknowledging nor consulting with the people who are really affected.
