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

    Pros

    This company offers great benefits with excellent paid time off. Great company for family oriented professionals. Very clean work environment since all manufacturing/fabrication are outsourced. Fully climate controlled work environment. Paid holidays are abundant and 401K match is fair. Beneficial company to start your career with but after a year or two, you need to move on to ensure continued career growth,... competitive pay, etc.

    Cons

    A growing company with many personnel changes at the middle to top level management in the last 10 years creating an unstable environment for the rest of the company. Company has many goals and targets but all are challenging to achieve continuously due to inability to retain experienced and reliable employees for the long term. Employees come and go at all levels and all departments. Guesstimate average length of... service of all supervisors and to top management is less than 3 years at their current role. RECARO USA is established as a separate entity from its German counterpart but be aware that management personnel, career paths, and procedures/processes are decided by Germany where the "Functional Leadership" remains. A strong desire to mirror all operations, processes and procedures to be like that of the German facility, however management positions, number of staff members, financial support and employee compensation are at least a level or two below Germany in comparison in all areas. Management positions and other attractive positions are often filled by promoting and transferring in German counterparts. US Management team does not strive for individuality, too compliant in many areas where it does not make sense. Very weak career development, HR is more about hiring and firing employees rather than creating development programs for existing employees.

    Advice to Management

    If you are to succeed and excel in this competitive market, you must become more visionary and take charge of your own operations. What works well for Germany may not work well for you since you do not have the same infrastructure, personnel base, and financial support that they have. Why follow when you can lead? Break yourselves free of the "absentee" micro-management because when things go wrong, its still your... fault; not theirs. Employee retention is key to any growing organization. Stop losing employees with experience and think you can just backfill with another one. Most professional positions here are high-skilled positions that require decisive actions. Seriously analyze this concern and put some well deserved thoughts and efforts into addressing this issue or you will always struggle to support your growth with new and inexperienced staff members while backfilling vacated positions simultaneously. Your current struggle is not only that you do not have defined processes and procedures in place, it is because everyone is so new (due to the constant turn-overs, changes of roles and responsibilities, understaffed departments, etc.) that no one knows what the heck is going on including management. Encourage teamwork and professionalism within your management team and this will trickle on down to everyone else eliminating a dog eat dog, finger-pointing work environment. Problems and inadequacies may come to surface easier and sooner when everyone has an opportunity to speak and share their ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Cuando un departamento clave está perdiendo el 50 % de su personal porque se van, hay un problema con el mánager de ese grupo
