    I worked at Schüco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A good place to gain experience and build resume. The colleagues are very nice.

    Cons

    Notice that American branch of Schuco is different from European branch. USA LP ( or LLp, LLLP) of Schuco has very poor management and high turn over rate. There is no bonus program and they expect you to work hard as an experienced employee even if they only pay you as an intern. They also prefer to use trial version of some required software instead of buying the commercial version.

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

    Pros

    Great resume builder. I was able to gain a lot of experience in my tenure with the company.

    Cons

    EXTREMELY poor management. Company was indecisive about which direct to go in. Two divisions were built up only to be laid off and closed in a relatively short time span. Hundred of people lost jobs. There was unfair treatment between the American employees and the Germans. If you were American, there was limited room for advancement. When issues arised, no one was willing to listen.

    Advice to Management

    I hope you carefully select your future management and listen to the employees that actually care.

    I have been working at Schüco (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Schüco macht echt viel für die Mitarbeiter ob es um Sonderurlaub geht oder man mal privat einen Mietwagen brauch.
    2. Bezahlung ist auch sehr gut.
    3. Vile veranstaltungen für Mittarbeiter und Kunden
    4. Vergünstigungen für Bahn / Bus
    5. Sehr gute Karrieremöglichkeiten

    Cons

    Kontras gibt im Allgemeinen nicht. Schüco müsste hat kleinichkeiten die nicht optimal laufen aber im großen und ganze ist Schüco eine Mitarbeiter orientierte Firma.

    Advice to Management

    Mehr mit den Mittarbeitern reden und mal die Läute fragen die auch wirklich Kundenkontakt haben.
