    I worked at WIKA Instrument full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Great company. As any, it has its ups and downs, but in general great place to work. Coworkers help one another, top management is involved and the owner is very employee oriented. Great benefits and in general friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Those are usually related to businesses cycles and strategy. As things change, sometimes direction is not clear to everyone.

    I worked at WIKA Instrument full-time

    Pros

    None!! I can't find and pros.

    Cons

    Bullying, horrible upper management that do not listen and expect you to work on average 50-60 hours. Layoff yearly. People are constantly out to get each other. New people do not last. Constant stress. No pay increases in the last 3-4 years.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to the employees, do something about the low morale instead of hearing the complains and not doing anything about it. There is a reason why people do not last with this company and they succeed at other companies.
