Lots of paperwork justifying your existence in industrial channel
Old guard managed by fear ( they were cleaned out by 2010)

keep open communication to field personel and keep regionals training and working with field sales reps. Refocus with understanding that Bosch cannot operate in USA like Germany.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good tools.
    Made some good friends among associate employees.
    Pay when the economy was good was not bad.
    Well recognized company.

    Cons

    No sense of direction in the long term business goals..
    Unbelievable back stabbing at the corproate office.
    No teamwork whatsoever.
    Most of the the rats ae jumping ship (most of tenured management has left the company in the last several months, which may be a good thing)..
    Very little support to the field from the corporate office.
    Very unethical behavior witnessed in the field and at the corporate office.
    If you are at your core a dishonest, selfish, evil person....this may be a good place for you to work.

    Advice to Management

    Institute some kind of ethical training and hire honest, ethical people. When upper and middle management behave without scruples and dishonestly it sends the wrong message to all the employees and it just multiplies. Promote teamwork.
