    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Robert Bosch (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nearly unlimited growth potential for the person who is willing to work for it.
    Locations around the world in too many fields to list here.

    Cons

    Being a global giant its easy for one to get lost in the mix.
    However, many people have made a career from beginning to end to great satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time leading! Bosch has some of the greatest hard working people in any business yet they are micro managed and pushed on daily tasks rather than being pushed to improve with the systems that are in place.

    Nice small Automobile engineering facility. I would return for the right opportunity.

    Few software engineers, most of the coding was in C set up in an OO manner. That was tedious and sometimes error prone.
