I wish the health care had a smaller family deductible.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like assurance about our office and job stability. I would prefer a better offering for insurance and 401K. I would also prefer a vacation policy.

What I like about the company

I have been able to keep my job through the rounds of layoffs. While some of the benefits were recently cut, some still remain. The cafeteria food is good. The virtual assistant secretary is not nearly as friendly as seeing the real people that used to work there, it is helpful.

What I dislike about the company

I do not like the uncertainty of the rounds of layoffs. The changes to the 401K and having to buy health insurance has been tough to afford. The lack of feedback about our office stability is not too reassuring.

Career Development

Spent 7 years handling the companies largest and most important projects. At the end of the day and 7 years later, NO upward mobility and time was wasted. No roadmap, just jumping through hoops and in the end they had a decision...do the right thing and promote the person who is already 2 levels below were they should be and outperforming all of their co-workers, or get rid of the problem and buy them off to leave...they took the later!

Handicapped Accessibility

The parking....sucks. Parking is 2 blocks away from the building! Maybe it's a cultural and European/German thing, but ridiculous if you're handicapped or get sick and have to walk that distance! Also, it doesn't help to be on tmie to meetings as an additional 10 minutes or more needs to be added in.

Workplace Safety

They have rent-a-cops and a camera system that is useless. Before leaving in 2017, tailgates were stolen off of multiple vehicles in the parking lot, one person was assaulted, and I believe a women sexually assaulted! Nothing prevented things from going on and issues right in front of their face.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get rid of the leadership team who failed to recognize as High Potential Ensure your talent is promoted and people behind the level they should be at or risk losing them and all of the time spent training and knowing the workings of the company and products which now becomes a threat.

What I like about the company

The company outward image and products
The ability to move around under normal circumstance for a large company
The potential for upward mobility in a large company, if the leadership team has the skill to recognize skilled team members
Higher compensation and benefits and tried to balance work/life

What I dislike about the company

Liberal and European ideals - 5 waste baskets, anti-gun, minority preference, etc.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The company could streamline business processes in order to make employees' day-to-day work more streamlined.

What I like about the company

This is a great place to work. The company has a large focus on employee well-being and happiness. The company also has a focus on customer first, profit second.

What I dislike about the company

The company sometimes runs lean, which leads to increased workload. This is not a major burden however, because management is quick to realize this and rectify the situation.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Test everybody on their competency and train them to achieve their team/division goals, or let them go, and hire responsible hard working people.

What I like about the company

Is the world biggest automotive supplier with a lot of inventions and innovations.

What I dislike about the company

Since our entire division was bought in from another company, even after 5.5 years of integration you are still not considered fully Bosch and have not achieved their level of benefits and compensation.

  • Service repair should be located closer to engineering and should have access to the automotive maintenance bays.

What I like about the company

Bosch really tries to make up for stagnant salaries with ''intangibles.'' This always galls short.

What I dislike about the company

Management should value educational achievement. Why do they think it's fair to pay someone with no education past high school the same as someone with an associate's degree?

What I like about the company

Over a year and a half of being sick my company looked out for me and my family. I feel I was treated very fairly, and I so appreciate everything they did for me .

What I dislike about the company

There really are no negatives. The job is stressful and crazy busy. But that is not a fault of my employer. They truly back us up.

What I like about the company

I have a flexible work schedule.

What I dislike about the company

No one is held accountable for his/her actions. Employees are demoted or moved to new positions when they underperform in their current positions. Employees are allowed to pass the buck and constantly throw one another under the bus. Management is severely ineffective.

Support from management

Told coming in there would be lots of opportunity. Every time I put in for training and education it was denied. I found out a job I wad approached about for advancement did not happen because my current manager "needed me more" and I was told by HR if I was to get another position it is Bosch policy not to allow me to jump levels and salary even if I am qualified.

Teamwork

They are a top down company

Freedom to work independently

Wad not micromanage

Internal Communication

They shared according to level and need. Not surprising but frustrating when you are brought in on a project half way through and expected to take over.

Gender Equality

At times i felt outside of the good old boys club but i would think it depends on the area you are.

Career Development

Denied training continously and that promise of reimbursing for education also denied. I was told it was not in the budget.

Overall compensation for your work

I was completing high level work at low wage. While completing an RFQ a position would be created to do the work I was doing at 3 times the pay. When i decided to level Bosch and started interviewing I was literally laughed at when I stayed the wage I was getting for the work I did. My next job was a 60% increase in pay.

Work-Life Balance

Amazing when I had family issues. Understanding and worked with me.

Challenging Work

Only when available. At times I had to repeatedly request additional work to keep busy.

What I like about the company

Great with understanding putting family first. Work hour flexibility and working remotely on occasion.

What I dislike about the company

Being held back to benefit others and the company policy that you can only move up the ladder according to level and salary. Therefore if you hire in low or below your qualifications to get in the door, do not expect to get to where you should be. Also being told training and education reimbursement was offered only to be denied every time I applied for it whether it was inside or outside Bosch offerings.

Company Culture

NEPOTISM You could only advance... if u were related to H.R (95% of people were) the rest of the employees were humiliated by H.R and talked down too. I have never seen anything like this before. People failed drug tests for cocaine up to 3 times in a row and we're made team leads.

Support from management

Management made a ton of promises. Gave people career paths that H.R shut down. You could do a 70.000$ a year job for years and if you weren't related to H.R you had no chance for advancement!

Teamwork

Team work was amazing at first. But the team fell apart due to lack of leadership helping the team develope it was every man for themselves. Management gained $30.000 a year

Freedom to work independently

We ran Everything

Internal Communication

We were costantly told we didn't do enough

Gender Equality

It was pretty much a gentleman's club

Attitude towards older colleagues

No if you're not related to H.R you are not going to advance.

Career Development

No chance of that unless you are related to H.R

Overall compensation for your work

Good pay and benefits if you are entry level.

Office / Work Environment

It was a great work environment

Company Image

No absolutely not! This is the worst company I have ever worked for.

Job Security

The worst people in the company moved on to high level jobs. The rest of us got screwed due to less than amateur decisions on there part.

Handicapped Accessibility

They were top notch at this

Workplace Safety

They followed a ton of rules! But could not enforce them. H.R would not allow it.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get rid of legacy employees that say I don't care if we fail I have a job no matter what.

What I like about the company

Fair entry level pay
