    Pros

    The unique product presents challenging design opportunities. The company is made up of really good people.

    Cons

    Voith views its employees as "resources" and desires everyone to meet a standard set of superficial criteria, if you do not meet that criteria you are pushed out. Individuality is discouraged at Voith. Many of the managers are more concerned with their own reputations and career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the product, reduce the levels of management.

    Pros

    Once managers trust you, everything gets better.

    Cons

    Training was lacking when I started, management is too far out of the loop. Many company rules are written by Germany, unfair much of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more. As many large companies, it's all about the numbers.

    Pros

    Work scope. Product. Complexity and challenges in the projects. Vision plan. New steel toe boots every year. Can be lots of travel.

    Cons

    Notably low Pay. HR treats employees as costs rather than assets. Management directives constrain employees and polarize employees against the company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees; the penny pinching everywhere makes it clear that employee satisfaction is low low on the list.
