    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Relaxed attitude to work hours, good vacation and pay, very diverse portfolio of products enables many career move options, large diversity of world sites gives opportunity for travel and job advancement.

    Cons

    Very euro-centric management, difficult to break into "inner circle" if not close to European HQ, diversity of product portfolio can often seem to make strategic decision making chaotic with no overall direction for company. This often translates to job uncertainty at the individual level.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify power structure, bring in outside managers with new ideas.


  2. "Good company depending on which division"

    Pros

    * Working environment is relaxed and comfortable
    * Compensation is very competitive to other companies with a good bonus on base salary
    * Could be a good place to learn and gain knowledge
    * Big company that can afford to tackle big markets and product lines
    * Did not lay off as aggressively as other companies during the recession

    Cons

    * Very political in terms of career advancement
    * European management is a disaster. No clear vision of what they want to do. Very slow in taking critical decisions. Can let valuable people leave the company easily.
    * There are good peers but also more than what could afforded of mediocre engineers

    Advice to Management

    When a product fails due to management mistakes, managers should be affected and not engineers. In order to compete with American companies change has to happen at the top.
