    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.

    I worked at Robert Bosch LLC full-time (More than a year)

    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

    I have been working at Robert Bosch LLC full-time (More than 5 years)

    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
