    I worked at Preh full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have sat here for 5 min and cannot think of a single one....so I am moving on to the next question...

    Cons

    Read all of the reviews- notice the common theme regarding the President of Preh Inc? He is terrible and just a horrible, mean, human being. He brags about the fact that he is never wrong, hard to work for, and quite frankly a low life (the last one is my summary of him). All the NA reviews state the same thing! The positive reviews are made up one by HR - who is now doing damage control by replying to all! What... a JOKE! And work/life balance is not considered. Regardless of what HR will respond - if there is a blizzard going on - you better not be a min late or the mgt team will tear into you

    Advice to Management

    To the mgt team in Germany/China - Rumor is you tried to clean house in NA before and could not - finish what you started.

    Pros

    Decent pay and good insurance.

    Cons

    Unwilling to listen. President thinks he can never be wrong. If you have any type of illness. Depression. Ect. Doesn't care about people.

    Advice to Management

    Train employees. Don't judge people without knowing them. Open up to advice or constructive criticism

    I worked at Preh full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Small group, so what you do is highly visible. Very good and hard working engineers. Fully paid health insurance, dental, and vision. Amazing quality in products, and a highly innovatively work environment.

    Cons

    Workload levels are way up there, but salaries are in the lower end with a lot of unpaid and uncompensated overtime, so the main way they have to keep talent is by coercion. There is some history of retaining yearly salary "increments" based on accepting and signing progresively more restrictive Non-Compete agreements that have actually been legally enforced. Other than that... the management, (almost) all of it.... Preh Inc's "President" is the worst human being I ever had the displeasure working with. Not only disrespectful, but condescending, and even nepotistic. The management also likes to bloat about being one of the "Coolest places to work", although this is mainly the product of a very good work environment between teammates by themselves.

    Advice to Management

    This is an advice to the Preh group leadership in Germany: Please review Preh Inc's capabilities within the senior management. I do not doubt these guys ability to sell, but they are not a good leaders, not even close. It should be clear by now that rotation is a very big issue in this office, and I'm sure it is starting to become more and more evident to your customers; and aside from the salaries, the management... is a very big portion of why that happens.

    I worked at Preh full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Close To Home - other than that there are no pros working there. Oh there was a nice restaurant a mile away.

    Cons

    Everything else - the local president is an unethical person who brags about how difficult it is to work for him. If you are not related to him (yes he hires family) or are not of Hispanic decent, you have no chance of getting a fair shot. if you are desperate for a job, as I was, then take it but keep looing. I had so much stress from working there I ended up in the hospital multiple times. The moment I left,... my medical conditions went away. one more note, the local president has no problem abusing his employees - verbally that is, and will fire you on Christmas eve not to pay out the holiday - which happened to someone else who worked there....

    I worked at Preh full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There were some nice and talented people that worked there. Unfortunately for Preh, they all were laid off or left for greener pastures.

    Cons

    Very nepotistic. They only hire relatives or friends of relatives, etc. Also please note, that unless you are of Hispanic origin, your odds of going to work for this outfit are slim to none.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the act of this operation big time, before you land yourselves a big, fat EEOC lawsuit. Take a long hard look at who is being hired and why, and who gets diced and why. Open your eyes!
