Pros

The time off policy was decent and work from home arrangements are negotiable. The benefits has a great support structure and the ability to travel around the world was interesting and fun.

Cons

It's big. There are a lot of issues that arise in America because of the German work culture and the differences between the two. There are little opportunities for promotions unless you are a white German male. There were very few women managers and the one that I did see was German. The politics within the company are complex and suffocating.

Advice to Management

Start to understand more of what your middle management is doing and stop focusing so much on the revenue.

    Pros

    As a field service tech the perks would have to be getting to see the US including Puerto Rico, Guam, Alaska, and Hawaii. The company has a great medical plan for employees. They also have great perks like discounts at AT&T, Dell, Ford, GM, and many others.

    Cons

    Poor management. They don't recognize employees very well.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to you employees. Especially when they know more about the work than you do.

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits are very good. The people at my facility embrace team work.

    Cons

    The work life balance at our facility is given no attention. I know this not to be true at other locations. It seems as if little regard is given when employees are asked to make sacrifices with regard to their personal life.

    Goals are set for divisions/departments without any clear guidelines on how to achieve them.

    Advice to Management

    When asking employees to go above and beyond the call of duty, recognize or acknowledge them for that effort rather than taking it for granted.
