It's a good company to learn and gain insights. But they won't let your salary grow and you have to keep hustling more even in the same pay. Not so large presence else where to let you join in a different location

No hike even after working double than what you could. You'd realize the hikes are quite late and hold no value

Likes

Bosch is good at paying variable pay when over company cprp ratio is good. Projects are very less. If we allocate to one project and end with project, new assignment will be given with minimum 5 months on bench due to lack of projects.

Dislikes

Projects has very less projects. Bosch has to speed up on getting new projects and compete with TCS, infosys, Capgemini, IBM etc. Managers are not much focusing on projects and billing, instead they say, we have to improve on skills and skill gaps. Some clients says, Bosch billing is high compared with other vendors. Which needs to take care by Bosch and attract the clients.
