    Pros

    Yearly bonus is excellent. Good Document and data control, relatively fast paced and not to the point of high stress.

    Cons

    Health care is below average. Policies driven by Germany making some practices in the US very paperwork heavy, not lean.

    Advice to Management

    Empower employees including low and middle level managers. Stop micro managing every decision.

    Schott is a great company for long term stability. Pay and benefits are competitive. Very global.

    I have been working at SCHOTT full-time

    Pros

    Schott has some of the best glass minds in the world. Engineering is second to none.

    Cons

    The same can't be said for the sales side of the business. This is for two reasons. Firstly, because sales are driven by engineering, not the other way around. Secondly, some sales managers have absolutely no clue how to properly interact with their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your people are just as valuable as your product.
