    I have been working at Robert Bosch Tool Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    No pros. Was good place to work years ago. Hard to describe. Human resource used to be easy to talk to.

    Cons

    Air quality very bad . Considered calling environmental agency about this. Manager doesn't care. No life/ work balance. Too much Saturday work. Expect family life to come last.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out every saturday. Maybe every other saturday. That way something could be planned with family. Need more family time. Office doesn't work on Saturdays. Why should employees every saturday? Help us! Please!!!

    I worked at Robert Bosch Tool Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working for an internationally recognized company.

    Cons

    Little understanding of the socially driven economy. Abusive managers, with repeated complaints filed against them, are not mentored or moved from their positions. Highly competitive environment hinders collaboration and productivity. Archaic employee management systems are a major roadblock to training, much less career growth. Highly sexist environment where all women work in administrative and brand roles. Most importantly, unless you're an engineer, you're discouraged from playing with power tools.

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling people they are lucky to work there. You're lucky to enjoy your position on the shelf but it wont last long.
