Bullying environment in USA (c2014)

Significant management turn-over, major part due to bullying by USA leadership (Leader) well know by all, but ignored by Germany. Leadership changed in 2018 so likely much improved today.

Productive, stressful work culture

High level technical sales with high level autonomy. Management is open door policy. Job roles are ill defined and boundaries are not clearly established. Sales process is a team effort with all accountability falling on the sales rep. Low collegiality. Male dominated.

Great products, great coworkers, terrible management

ZEISS has the best microscopy products on the market today. If they allowed their people to flourish and stopped trying to micromanage and discourage initiative, they would be unstoppable. There is still a significant gender bias and is an old boys club. I told by a senior manager "ZEISS is not a good place for a woman to make her career. I would recommend it to my sons but not my daughter".

Pros

Great product and colleagues

Cons

No room for advancement, gender bias, micromanagement

Diverse and Fun place to work.

As a student working on co-op, meaningful tasks and responsibilities were given to me and helped advanced my knowledge and career. Facilities were nice and clean, and plenty of room to relax on lunch break.

Pros

BBQ lunches

Cons

Nothing

Bad Place to work

Its a toxic environment. Everyone is trying to step on top of each other to look good and rise to the top. However, you will realize soon that the management has been there for 20+ years and they have surrounded themselves with people who will keep them there. There is no pride for what the history of the company is. The Management say one thing but only want to collect their pay cheque and go home. They also hire who they can exploit to work for free or next to free.
