    Pros

    Really unique company to work for here in the USA. Helbling really has a great culture of technical competence coupled with a really pragmatic way of doing business. There's a great focus on quality of the finished product, and I really like that as an engineer. The organization is pretty flat, and everybody is extremely acessible. There's truly a great collaborative atmosphere within the company as a whole, and I feel as a team we tend to deliver really groundbreaking ideas, prototypes, and final products...

    Cons

    Sometimes things can get busy as we're working on multiple projects, but it's generally worth it, as the projects really are cutting edge--high technology focused things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, it feels like we're a very unique company here in the US, in a good way!

    Pros

    Exposition to many different projects, often international projects with best available external partners.
    Good practice processes tuned over 50 years of experience.

    Cons

    Average salaries, engineering mentality as well in the top management, sometimes too dependent from few big customers.

    Advice to Management

    International standardization of project management processes. Evaluation of new business models.

    Pros

    Interessante Projekte, sehr abwechslungsreich, die meisten davon mit einem starken Innovationsgehalt und technologischen Fokus. Man hat Gelegenheit, sowohl mit lokalen als auch mit internationalen Kunden zu arbeiten. Modernes Umfeld.

    Interesting projects, very diversified, most of them with strong innovation content and technology focus. Opportunity to work both with local and international customers. Modern environment.

    Cons

    Ich bin noch immer für dieses Unternehmen tätig, also ist das schwer zu sagen! Es handelt sich um eine professionelle Service-Branche, erfordert fachliche Kenntnisse und auch soziale Kompetenzen. Hohes Engagement ist eine Grundvoraussetzung.

    I am still with the company, so it's hard to say! This is professional service industry, requires hard skills asa well as social skills. High commitment as a prerequisite.

    Advice to Management

    Nichts, was ich auf einer öffentlichen Plattform sagen könnte ;-)
