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

    Pros

    Plenty of work! Can’t fill positions needed!

    Cons

    Overtime overload, no work/life balance. Promises made and not kept. Favoritism, folks not held accountable, sub par training, communication from leadership is terrible. Manager never knows what is happening. Medical is sub par.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication, managers should have shift tie ins with leadership so they know the plan of the day, or cumminication which should be addressed with each crew. More training!

    Pros

    Good pay for interns. Pay is based off of class standing and what area (engineering, business etc.) you are working in. Flexible hours, excellent management/training, great learning/growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Office is so big that it is impossible to know everybody, even in your division. You will get to know the people you work with on a regular basis quite well though.

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

    Pros

    - A culture of hard work leads to success mentality
    - Good pay and great benefits (401K)
    - Management is open to allowing employees to move around within the company and try different things

    Cons

    - Company is extremely large and it takes time to understand things (many divisions and departments)
    - Germany makes all the rules, or at least most

    Advice to Management

    - Allow employees to better understand the scope of the company, and what they’re role brings to the company

    I have been working at Robert Bosch LLC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, that is the only benefit.

    Cons

    Micromanaging is the worst I have seen. You must put your mood on the board every morning like children, you are requested to only put good moods just as you are request to only put down a max of 6 hours estimated for the day even if you know you are working more. Just for SHOW.... Management is incompetent and the turn around of engineers is like that of a restaurant. IT IS HARD TO FIND SOMEONE THERE WITH OVER 2 YEARS IN THE COMPANY. Because they all leave! You will spend half the time watching your back as management will try to pin and issues on the engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the management with someone fit to run the position and a back bone to stand up for the engineers under them. Remove the HR Lady as she is the reason many have quite. MAKE SURE THE MANAGER MANAGING THE ENGINEERS HAS A DEGREE...

    Pros

    Some very intelligent people to work with.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    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.

    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.
