MACHINE OPERATOR, MATERIAL HANDLER (Current Employee) – Charleston SC. – November 23, 2013
Everyday was a new learning experience. I've learned the right procedures how to function with many machines. Following orders to the set standers of the company. Management is great group of people and my co-workers easy group of people to work with. No hard part to the job at task. The most enjoyable was learning the materials and function of the job.
Many opportunities for lateral movement, exposure to many product disciplines in the same company
Hydraulic System Engineer (Current Employee) – Farmington Hills, MI – October 12, 2016
Typical day is mostly desk environment but it greatly depends on the product line one works in. Being a large company many responsibilities are compartmentalized, however a position where interaction with multiple disciplines was most rewarding because it allows you to become a generalist. At the same time, you could also become an expert in a specific component, so it's easy to find that this company provides opportunities across the board to fit the breadth of knowledge you're hoping to gain in a product/system.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 7, 2016
I learned a lot about different parts. I liked my managers. I got along well with my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was when our contract ended. I enjoyed going to work everyday to learn more, and meet new people.
Great experience with marketing and strategic planning
Regional Brand Manager (Former Employee) – South Florida, FL – September 15, 2016
I have learned a lot from this position regarding strategic planning of the product line, communication with different management levels inside and outside of organization and also i have learned that i am not a 100% office person. I like to travel outside the office, meat people and get challenged by their needs.
Group Leader (Former Employee) – Broadview, IL – August 29, 2016
Wonderful experience while working for Bosch in Broadview, Illinois. Excellent Leadership and ample opportunity for career movement. Technical and operations training is world class. The benefits at Bosch AANA, are great especially when compared to what other companies are currently offering. The only reason I left is Bosch moved their distribution to Atlanta Georgia.
Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Novi, MI – August 25, 2016
1. Bosch expect you to grow automatically, the training/follow-up feed back is severely insufficient.
2. Bosch encourage you to work over time: it is not on the rule, but the task assigned to you definitely make you work over 50, even 60 hours per week, on an average Engineer;
3. Highly bureaucratic management.
4. Lack humanistic care: my colleague's wife is during pregnancy at her 9th month, the company still assign him to German for 8 weeks! He miss the most important moment in his life! Similar things happened very often.
5. HR is not nice to you, especially if you are a not US citizen: your green-card sponsorship, H-1 B are reluctant approve with delay.
Relatively good compensation; Good to be a manager in Bosch
Manager (Former Employee) – Broadview, IL – August 7, 2016
A great place to work with dedicated staff and a group of people that really wanted to do the right thing. You were able to follow your passions and learn as much as you would like. A stable strucute with a very little turnover.
Management leadership skills are lacking. Its more of a dictatorship. You are treated like a number and not a person with a life and family outside of Bosch. The hardest part of the job is the mandatory weekends. Some months we can work of 21 straight days. The most enjoyable part of the job is the pay. Advancement is on a "who you know not what you know' basis.
Senior Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – Novi, MI – March 19, 2016
Overall a good place to work at. The position i had was not for me. Typical day would be looking at excel charts to track quality trends and close customer issue. Analyzing parts as they came in and documenting the results. Learned a lot about supplier quality and how its not meant for me. Hardest part was constantly being blamed for everything and having to be in front of the customer getting berated for a bad quality part that your company produced. Best part was the commute to work 10 minutes.
Daily morning meetings to observe and analyze any defective products found on the line. Numerous weekly meetings to review ongoing issues with various defective products. Weekly meetings to see where various projects were and to determine new actions and dates for completing goals. I learned how the products we produced worked, how manufacturing facilities work, and how quality is critical in the success of companies and their products. Management was helpful with projects and interactions with other employees. Multiple interactions with co-workers throughout the day. The hardest part of the job was finding projects that were necessary and how they could improve upon various processes. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with fellow employees and meeting front line staff members.
While working at Robert Bosch I learned a lot! The management in the department in which I worked was always open to new ideas, allowed you to be creative & provided the elements that you needed to get your job done!
When working with a large manufacturing company there is always the possibility of lay offs
