Robert Bosch GmbH, better known as Bosch, is a multinational corporation based in Germany. It was founded in 1886 by Robert Bosch. In 1902, the company produced the product for which it is best known: the automotive spark plug. Automotive related items at this time account for about 60 percent of Bosch’s 2010 revenues of approximately $60 billion.
The main corporation and over 300 subsidiary companies claim a total head count of around 300,000. The company has within the past several years become involved in the manufacture of lithium-ion battery cells for hybrid cars and is also a considerable presence all over Europe in consumer goods such as home appliances and power tools.
Somewhat unique is the fact that the company is privately owned, unusual for a company of this size. Also, the company is almost entirely owned by the Bosch charitable foundation. The charity reinvests most of the profits earned back into company. Most of any profits that do get distributed to Bosch shareholders are donated to humanitarian causes.
With the revenues Bosch produces and the large number of employees, it should be apparent that Bosch careers would offer opportunities of every possible description.
There are manufacturing, distribution, information technology, engineering, product development and administrative jobs in over 50 countries. Those with previous experience working in a multinational company, especially those with multiple language skills will find their services in demand at Bosch. An automotive background would help, but since the company has its hand in so many different products, this would only be true if one of the automotive divisions was the objective of working at Robert Bosch.
A clear communication of company goals is a primary aspect of the Bosch culture. It will seem to some that the decision making process can be cumbersome; that’s to be expected in such a large corporation. Workers who can relate to the chain of command concept where multiple layers of management are involved in policies and procedures will find this company to their liking. The re-investing of profits toward the company’s future is something that will appeal to those who favor job security. The company does invest heavily in many different employee development programs. There also seems to be a sense of pride attached to working for Bosch.
Bosch benefits are generally considered average for the automotive parts and supplies industry. Benefits will vary according to the region where they are offered.
