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

    Pros

    dispatchers were paid well here

    Cons

    complete circus. dishonest management, vp over customer service has no experience in customer service and it shows. constant changes by people who make poor choices makes for surly mechanics, unstable work environment. promises not kept. mechanics are disgruntled, leads to some being unkind. many branches don't feel like the have to follow rules, causes much confusion. nothing is streamlined, management doesn't know which battles to fight, never goes to bat for dispatchers. training is VERY poor. office conditions uncomfortable. we complained that it was constantly cold and they provided us with fans.

    Advice to Management

    follow through with promises, promote from within. stop being tricky people.

    I worked at thyssenkrupp as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours (for the most part)
    A paycheck
    Some relatively friendly and helpful employees willing to assist and train (but had to hunt them down myself)

    Cons

    1) Poor management - and that's putting it mildly
    2) I sat around for months with NO TRAINING and no real job description whatsoever
    3) No onboarding - I was invited to a training my first week with the company, but did not discover until AFTER I was supposed to have attended the training where to find my "invite".
    4) European based company that allows people to sit around and literally do nothing only to count them as "Headcount"
    5) I was informed that I would be able to work remotely (in emergency situations) only to learn afterward that I was assigned a desktop computer and no further mention of remote possibilities.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter, it won't be taken into consideration.

    Pros

    Decent benefits. They hire a lot of temporary employment, can be good or bad depending on how you want to see it.

    Cons

    Upper management along with corporate and facilities HR are working within the buddy system. Some facility Operations positions areally involved in things that could cause future problems for all later. If you don't make waves you're okay, if you know and see something wrong and say something, you become the next target. No promotions, no good pay raises. If your good at your job you won't be recognized for it. Your manager or supervisor will take the credit for what you have done.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to be cleaned out....culture and values, there are non.

    Pros

    They will hire anyone that wants to keep a chair warm 8 hours a day.

    Cons

    Management does not have any experience in management. The level of engineering skills is non existent. A few do the work of the many.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new job somewhere else because what they are doing there isn't working. Get involved with your project teams and manufacturing. Show you really care.
