    Pros

    Great company who looks after their employees. Bosch simply does the right things and is a trustworthy employer and partner. Feels great to be a part of.

    Cons

    Very few. The organization changes frequently. Also, certain NA divisions do not enjoy the brand recognition as the ROW.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trusting and empowering your people.

    Pros

    You have option to Travel a lot, Learn if in right team, rich cultural History, Brand Value.
    Tuition fees

    Cons

    Sickening policies, blood sucking Manager. You get abused and threatened to be fired for no reason. And i saw few colleagues being fired on a Friday post Lunch. Reason was unknown. you are not allowed to work or add value to the company, rather follow Germany.
    Follow Timesheet for every hour of work ( justify every hour of work ).
    Promises are not kept. No compensation for working on holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Managers. too many Managers to manage employees, you would save some money there. Hire people who get the work done. Done get Managers who have no idea of technology and just get to position because of being German or they were some VP's assistant. Teach the Managers not to abuse the resources here in US which they can't do in Germany.

    Pros

    Privately held global company with nice fully embodied benefits including actively giving back to community.

    Cons

    People treated like objects. Scapegoating fear based culture. Does not walk the talk in regards to doing the right thing, active listening. Conformity, not diversity nor humanity, rules.

    Advice to Management

    Speak with, not at, your employees.

    Pros

    Pros don't exist but they love to tell you how great they are and how changes are coming. Changes?!?? Yeah cutting jobs and budgets but still expect 15% growth. Get real!

    Cons

    Unrealistic goals
    Management blames their sales force vs upper management admitting they were wrong.
    Horrible pay
    Bonus structure is at a high school level pay grade.
    Develop and make products without advice from a well respected and senior sales force. So products are wrong!!!
    Reason why is they do not want to hear the truth.
    They can't handle the truth. I mean it.

    Dozen more cons but won't keep going.

    Advice to Management

    When we quit you finally ask us what we can do better to improve the company and role--/we lie to you because if we told you the truth you would think we were disgruntled and as I stated before---you can't handle or accept the truth. Seen it a thousand times. You will never admit the plans and people in place are wrong and it must be a lazy sales force. Pull your head outta your back side.
