    Pros

    Profitable, pays well, stable, growing company

    Cons

    Most professional growth opportunities go to German-speaking people, even when more qualified non-German speaking) people may be willing and ready to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your HR function. Hiring someone can take up to 6 months. Post jobs internally so that internal candidates have an opportunity to apply to higher level positions.

    I have been working at Oerlikon as a contractor

    Pros

    Some good coworkers with a lot of knowledge and experience in there field. Compensation is good for middle management and above.

    Cons

    Management is clueless, sales has no guidance, engineering and design have a high turn over so they have no real standards. Logistics is a nightmare. They string temporary employees a long promising a full time position, but some have been there 6+ years

    Advice to Management

    You should be fired, or do your job
