Great Job, Company Direction questionable.
Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Western Canada and USJuly 29, 2016
Best part of working for Voith was my customers. I had great long term relationships and enjoyed being part of integrating new technology at their sites while providing sales for my plant.

Many good people with 10 to 20 years leaving this company mostly because of crushing work loads.

New management created a new headquarters in Raleigh NC while the plant is in Appleton WI. Now the company has a hiring freeze on and travel restriction for all employees in a effort to improve profits for the 4th quarter.
Pros
Excelent Customers
Cons
Crushing work loads

Good place to work - but not the best management
Customer Service / Spare Parts Specialist (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIMay 27, 2014
I worked there when they were severely cutting back on their work force so I believe that management was under a lot of pressure and their performance was not the best. They did treat you well. Pay could have been better but most of your direct supervisors were decent people to work for and with.
Pros
Always something to learn and coworkers were pretty nice.
Cons
Management could ride your butt some trivial reason sometimes.
