Too conservative Southern German company.
Buyer (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach – March 10, 2018
Too conservative and privately owned Southern German company. They have no desire to follow or use best practices. Strictly follow the old adage, 'if it aint broke, don't fix it' so you end up working tons of hours, without overtime pay or recognition, just to get your job done. Managers in Purchasing, Material Planning and Quality are a joke! The 3 Stooges were more organized than they are and they constantly argue and fight amongst themselves, even in front of other employees. Upper management isn't much better either since obviously they don't do anything about it.
Virginia Beach is a really nice place and the tools produced are awesome.
Working at Stihl is challenging, but not in a good way.
