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

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment.
    Flexibility on working house and location.
    Lots of intelligent and educated people.

    Cons

    Inflexible pay schemes which are not competitive to roles and responsibilities.
    Disrespectful and micromanaging leaders in the NA Supply Chain group.
    Opportunities for career growth take many years to find.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house on your misleading HR practices and pay a competitive rate for all employees. Your excuses on why you pay less than other organizations are painfully transparent.
