A pleasant and memorable experience

After coming Germany, it was my first experience and I was very happy. I got a team as like as my family member. All of the colleagues are gentle and cooperative. Office environment is calm and quiet. It's a great place for work. The most important thing is that IAV works with new ideas and technologies.Fully research and development oriented based company.

Pros

Quiet environment, Canteen, kitchen room with soccer board.

Cons

Company policy is not much good for students.

Exciting and interesting workplace with friendly Staff and great food court

A typical day of work at IAV included working cohesively with team members on different company-assigned projects for fuel systems on automobile engines still under development. I learned how to use Creo 3-D software and to work with a team of highly skilled engineers in a foreign language, German. I found the culture in the workplace very enjoyable, especially the team lunches, brought in by fellow employees for special occasions. An enjoyable part of the job was being able to see future automobiles in camouflage wrap before hitting the market for sales, and a difficult part was becoming proficient in some of the new software for product development. An ordinary day at IAV consisted of team work within a group of engineering interns to improve fuel efficiency on certain parts in a direct-injected engine to improve fuel consumption and reliability for the future. Another interesting aspect of this job was learning how to market certain products towards different international markets to be interpreted without difficulty.

Pros

Peaceful work environment, kind co-workers, location

Cons

language barrier

독일회사인 만큼 업무와 생활의 균형이 잘 맞음

독일회사인 만큼 업무와 생활의 균형이 잘 맞으며, 휴가 시스템 및 유연근무제가 굉장히 잘 되어있음. 수평적 업무 관계로 직원간의 마찰이 적음.

Well paid and innovative workplace

Most interesting projects in all of germany. Nice employes. But there were a lot of forms to fill out, a lot of presentations to attent to, a lot of mails to write and a lot of general complications with the companies structure. Nette Mitarbeiter. Leider hatte ich häufig das Gefühl ein Sekretär zu sein. Ständig musste man über Outlook um Freigaben bitten oder viel mehr betteln. Die englischsprachigen neuen Mitarbeiter mussten teilweise 4-6 Wochen darauf warten, dass sie Google-Translate während der Arbeitszeit nutzen durften. Das hat einiges unnötig verkompliziert und zeitaufwändig gemacht. Wenn man schon als Programmierer eingestellt wurde, dann ist das eine Verschwendung von Recourcen. Es dauert mindestens ein halbes Jahr um die ganzen Formulare und Strukturen kennen zu lernen. Geschäftsreise? 3 Formulare. Gehalt? 2 Formulare. Und das jeden Monat neben den anderen Formularen.

Pros

Good hours. State of the art technology. Innovations. Fabulous Income

Cons

Gifhorn (very small town), lots of forms, weird morals

Teamwork macht hier Spaß

Als Werkstudent mit der Studienrichtung Maschinenbau konnte ich bei IAV sehr viel lernen. Ich wurde stets an neue Aufgaben herangeführt und von den Ingenieuren angelernt. Generell herrschte eine angenehme Atmosphäre in der Firma. Auch während des konzentrierten Arbeitens war immer Zeit für einen kurzen Plausch oder die Klärung von fachlichen Fragen. Durch die Gleitzeitregelung konnten alle ihren eigenen Arbeitsrhythmus finden.

Pros

Mitarbeiterfuhrpark, Kantine

Iav

Work was great. I worked in the candy room in the 5th building and i met so many people as they come to get a quick sugary snack to fuel their minds before returning to work.

Good

Good experience for a beginner breaking into the engineering industry. English is spoken for non-german speakers. Most employees don't end up leaving the company and if they do, they go to Volkswagen, which IAV is subsidiary of.

Good salary

Cons

Variert arbeid

De siste månedene jobbet jeg på flyplassen i Keflavik. For exempel med å sette opp innredninger i nye lokaler, fjerne asbest ,skipte vindue og sett opp nye vegger. Jeg liker å trives godt med å jobbe med andre og kan godt jobbe alene.

Pros

God arbeidsmoral

Poor Management

Poor Management and no career goals. Within 5 years, only 2 performance reviews. No trainings for career growth. No good future perspectives of company.

Regular corporate place

It's a regular place like any middle-tier corporate company is. Especially in India. The Germany office work culture was quite nice. But Indian office was not somewhere you would feel comfortable. The policies are not employee friendly.
