    I have been working at Robert Bosch LLC (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance, HR and senior leadership listen to employees and follow through on implementing necessary changes, very organized considering the massive scale of Bosch globally (350,000 employees), great international opportunities to work and live abroad, the company supports and encourages inter-department moves/transitions to diversify role within the organization, generous bonuses and incentives, social responsibility and health of employees is highly valued, very competitive compensation

    Cons

    There are very few cons to working at Bosch - some people in management roles aren't spectacular. Managers could be held to a higher standard when it comes to support and development of the associates within their teams.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening. It's apparent that you care!

    Pros

    High values and integrity conducting business. Process oriented company with quality at the forefront of its vision.

    Cons

    I would recommend to start with more vacation days as an entry level associate. I think people view this as a big deal and it would help to bring in good young talent.

    Advice to Management

    Great company but could do a better job of putting its name out there.

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay.
    A lot of talented people from diverse cultures.

    Cons

    No work life balance, clique environment.
    Advancement only if you are a part of the clique.
    Top and middle management uninvolved leaving lowest management to push off all their work to employees while lowest management work 8 or less hrs a day.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the need for 3 levels of management between salary employees, employees do their work and their own.

    Pros

    There's a "work from home" program available for salaried employees.

    Cons

    You can forget about advancement if you're either female or non-white. German males are most likely to advance here. Even US white males have a hard time here.

    Advice to Management

    Take your diversity program seriously! You have one, so use it. Please stop just giving lip service to diversity. Put some real measures in place to make advancements for underserved groups.

    Pros

    Bonuses once a year are probably the only thing you can look forward to and health savings plan that's only good because the health insurance sucks

    Cons

    Large company no real incentives or car for employees that they contract out insurance sucks doesn't cover anything and the deductible is sky high

    Pros

    High diversity, global company, very stable company due to multiple activity domains, unlimited training available ( non profit company), great work-life balance, high tech areas of activity - interesting work, great employees/coworkers, great work atmosphere, HR has a very efficient way of evaluating the managers where direct reports of managers have a say in their evaluation. Employees can choose to work from home around one day per week. great benefits and discounts for bosch tools and appliances.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons at this time. I'll add more pros here because I need to list min 20 words here... Much better company than big OEM's because they don't depend 100% on automotive

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work
