    Pros

    Some very intelligent people to work with.

    Onboarding is a mess, corporate culture is challenging due to disparate systems and willingness to invoke change. Manager was difficult, unprofessional and a micromanager. Culture said is not what is practiced.

    Management needs to look at certain managers and their impact on employees.They will continue to lose people as long as they keep this manager in place.

    I have been working at Robert Bosch LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Hours aren't bad. As long as you are willing to learn and do your job shouldn't have many problems.

    Cons

    Hard working employees can get blamed for not making sure their lazy coworkers do their job. Supervisors are more interested in making production than fixing machines that are having issues, waiting until the machine hard breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone writes up scrap cards for bad/mixed components does not mean they are the one that did it, they are just the one that caught it. Do not hold a worker accountable for making sure their coworker is doing their job, that is what supervisors are for. You want me to manage my coworkers then pay me more than them.
