    I have been working at Mettler-Toledo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of hands on learning. Has a school level teaching atmosphere

    Cons

    The beginning for me was a little slow. I was working with technicians a lot in order to learn one of the major products and it just took going to job sites and sitting through maintenance. The people at those sites were so kind though I can’t complain too much

    I have been working at Mettler-Toledo

    Pros

    There are some great pro's working for a large corporation. Insurance starts day one. Including medical, dental and life. It's a very clear work environment with a standard M-F 8-5 schedule. The on site cafeteria is nice, as well as the game room, and the gym with showers.

    Cons

    Yikes, this is where things get weird. Parking, be careful, you will be towed by the company for being parked in specific areas. They will gloat and post pictures across the company's email of your car being towed. Again weird, walking in the staircase. If you are on your phone, they will give you a final written warning for safety procedure violation. With that in mind, 5S, which eerily looks like SS, is taken to the extreme. If the work area isn't to someone's standard, again, they will email blast it to everyone. It seems like a strategic bullying tactic. They use shame and humiliation to get the results they are working towards. Community is non-existent. They specifically condemn employees from communicating anything outside of work. They don't allow anyone to post information on community events, activities, or gatherings. Word of mouth communication isn't openly stopped from my experience. You don't have to worry about your valuables, because there are cameras watching you at all times, inside and outside of the building. Back to the parking..... they are watching.

    I have been working at Mettler-Toledo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employees are friendly and willing to share knowledge, work hours are never more than 40 a week for most groups (excluding some finance teams), opportunities for travel as the company is global, easy review process in comparison to other places I've worked despite Mettler supposedly being a "high performance culture". Mettler did institute a parental leave policy that includes fathers, which is a nice feature of the benefits package.

    Cons

    While starting pay is often consistent with market rate, employees regularly agree that raises are poor. For example, last year a rating of 4/5 was enough to get a 2.25% raise for an employee below the midpoint of their salary band (where raises should be better than average). This doesn't even keep up with inflation of roughly 3%. The work culture is mixed as well. Work from home is either discouraged or outright banned depending on group, Dress code is relatively strict (no jeans, etc) at the main location in Columbus (though other locations are significantly more progressive). 2 weeks starting vacation is roughly on par with other Columbus employers, though far from leading.

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative 

    I worked at Mettler-Toledo full-time

    Pros

    Some mobility, depending on what department you work in. Customer service department could be a difficult one to get promoted from.

    Cons

    Depending on the manager, scheduling time off seem impossible at times.

    I have been working at Mettler-Toledo full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    vacation time and holiday schedules

    Cons

    If you are a high performer you will gain so many “extra” tasks that the only way out is to quit. Compensation is below market, raises and benefits are below market, overall a very rich company that makes their money by cutting things from employees. Quality and work life balance are not words mettler toledo understands.

    I have been working at Mettler-Toledo full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Ability to manage your own flight, rental car, and hotel bookings. Keep what per diem you use despite that it is on the lower end of the scale compared to other companies. Company car is provided.

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to what other companies pay their field service engineers. Bonuses were once upon a time great, but that is definitely no longer the case. Dispatch department is in constant flux, which directly affects customer scheduling. Field engineers are always getting sent to jobs well outside their regions and confirmation from customers is frequently not received. No room to grow unless you move to the headquarter's location. There are not multiple tiers of field service engineers (i.e. Level 1, Level 2, etc). Someone that has 14 year experience is the same as someone with 5 months experience. Annual raises are not even enough to keep up with the inflation rate of the economy.
