    Pros

    Company is advancing into some exciting new technologies. The brand is connected to major automotive players. Not demanding work hours.

    Cons

    Many information silos. Lacks of top talent. Tasks are simply dropped on people. Culture of mistrust. Others will take credit for work you've done.

    Advice to Management

    Management is attempting to rebuild the brand. However, they have also done lots of consolidation and terminations. This creates a lot of mistrust.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Benefits are OK. 401K matching was cut in half recently. Vacation package above average. Immediate team members were great.

    Cons

    Layoffs seem to have become a yearly thing. Management has become very detached and doesn't seem to have found a direction for the company yet. HR is useless and you can only submit a ticket about a issue, can't actually talk to a person. Lower than average pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy. Layoffs aren't a good way to " shake things up". Cutting benefits is only going to lead to more talent leaving.

    Pros

    Great location in downtown Chicago.

    Cons

    The company just slashed it's match to the employee's 401K and wages are below average.
    There's no opportunity for advancement.
    Too many people in the Berlin office who are in the wrong position but are still with the company because German law makes it so difficult to get rid of non-performers. Instead, people in the US are made redundant.
    Top HR execs work remotely.
    No work / life balance in the US.
    No single corporate culture. It varies by office.
