    I have been working at Würth (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wurth has a lot of flexibility. The power structure is de centralized and each location has the ability to run independently of the corporate headquarters. The company is in the midst of aggressively executing a growth plan.

    Cons

    There are cons, but they are very minor.

    Advice to Management

    With the de centralized structure, communication could always be better.

    Pros

    None that I remember, if any!

    Cons

    This is the worst management experience I have ever had! Local management is not allowed to make any decisions. Constantly wait for corporate emails to get permission.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair!

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

    Pros

    Options to get involved in multiple facets of the company if you express interest to get involved in different areas. Some of the younger managers are flexible with PTO/work from home days.Opportunities to advance from the lowest levels quickly if you show drive and initiative.Good health benefits.

    Cons

    Archaic expense policy. The only company I have ever worked at where you are punished for leaving your family weeks at a time. Unrealistic expectations for project completion. Will not be given the resources needed to achieve what senior management desires. Limiited flexibility with senior management when it comes to doctors appointments/family emergencies. The job description will encompass at the most 5% of your duties. You will be salaried at the lowest level possible, worked to the bone with no perks, and they will expect you to kiss their feet for them "blessing" you. Poor pay for hours worked and responsibility accrued. Do not trust anyone in the office, the management team would sell their mother if they were able to make a 10 dollar profit on it. If you mention wanting to work from home one day they look at you like you are speaking voodoo. To note, turnover is over 25% annualy.

    Advice to Management

    Please step out of the 1940s. If you expect to retain any of your talented and educated/smart employees, you are going to become more of a 21st century workplace. Allow your employees to have flex days and work from home days. It would make the brutal job more tolerable and you might be able to retain some employees instead of having to cycle out and retrain every 6 months.

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

    Pros

    There are still some good people left on the individual contributor level.

    Cons

    Management is incompetent, continually contradicting themselves, costing the company a lot of money. They put absolutely zero trust in their employees, and they treat them terribly. Compensation is awful, and HR goes out of its way to antagonize employees. They use Wurth's prestige internationally along with many flat out lies to recruit people. But it doesn't take long to see that it's all a charade. This is a terrible division of a decent company, and it's only still in business because Wurth in Germany is desperate to gain a foothold in the North American market. Don't fall for their sales pitch. Avoid Wurth Service Supply at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Update your resumes. No way Germany will continue to allow this company to exist in its current form with this management much longer.

    Pros

    Good salary. Fun Job. Great Co-workers.

    Cons

    Disconnected management. Lack of focus on long-term growth. A big company runs like a mom and pop shop.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality of sales calls over quantity and let sales reps build strong relationships with customers and sales will grow. Look at long term objectives instead of fast fixes which don't solve problems.
