    I worked at Robert Bosch LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The co-workers at the facility as well as the customer I worked with on a daily basis were great! I couldn't haven't asked for a better team to be a part of.

    Cons

    Some of the managers need to be replaced. My manager made it very clear who she really liked and who she didn't and it was never based on work performance. She kept people that she could socialize with and cut people who didn't interact with her much because they were busy actually working. Not only that but she gossiped about ALL of her employees to other employees in the facility. I honestly have NO idea how she has made it this far in the company but she is turning the place into a fun house rather than a professional environment.

    This is also a company that has NO room for growth, so if you are looking to move up in a company this is not the company you want to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying attention to the employees who are NOT making mistakes and are continuing to not only do their jobs correctly but strive to do better.

    Pros

    Paychecks never bounced, 401K matching

    Cons

    Management unresponsive when notified of racketeering/embezzlement scheme of a member of upper management. Was told to obey in scheme and when refused was accused of not being a team player.
    Everyone I knew has finally left so MAYBE they've cleaned up their act, but I wouldn't hold my breathe.

    Advice to Management

    Arrogance is not something to be proud of. Learn some humility.

    Pros

    Matching 401K - very high match. Health Benefits - good but, deductibles and cost passed on to employee increase each year.

    Cons

    Base salary is not consistent with industry standards. Major lay-offs, no work/life balance. Favoritism, sub par training, communications are poor. Managers and employees are being stretched too far in assignments to be effective.
    HR is not effective in the dealings with employees and handling of questions.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication, better training. Work on reducing favoritism. Balance work assignments between employees. Some employees have less assignments than others. Provide better training to managers in communications, and how to be an effective leader...not just being a manager.

    Pros

    matching 401K and health benefits, on the expense of low base salary

    Cons

    major lay-offs, unable to compete with small companies of less over-head. The big name of Bosch is misleading and lures you in, but seriously aftermarket division is different from other divisions of Bosch. No growth opportunity and prospect

    Advice to Management

    Rules in Germany sometime are not practical in USA

    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!
