It's a very good company to work for. Since it basically deals in the commercial vehicle domain (rail/truck), the technology doesn't change so fast. The employees work on same technology for years especially in the rail department. This becomes a drawback if you want to work on different technologies and grow your skills but at the same time it comes with a pro of job security since by working on the same tech for years you kinda expert that domain.

As far as the compensation is considered, it's average, its neither on the high side nor on the low side. Competitors are providing more attractive packages as compared to Knorr Bremse Technical Center India Private Limited.

I never faced any issues with the work life balance but this may be because of the team I am a part of and my manager is just great(not every manager can be awesome).

Onsite opportunities are good for some specific projects and no travel opportunities for some other project so it all depends on the team you are a part of.

The company was earlier in to providing it's services to it's client and had no product of its own but the time has changed now and the management wants in house product development with complete ownership and they are taking some serious steps for the same.

If you are lucky enough you will get to work on complete cycle of SDLC but that depends on which project you are deployed.

As far as politics is concerned, every industry has office politics, favourites of manager and favourites of Directors. So yes others who are not really good into making efforts towards building good relationship, might get a feel of wrath of office politics but it all depends on the person.

Appraisal is good usually between 10 -15% depending upon your performance (and your relationship with your manager and directors 😉). I got a promotion hike of just 4% and that's disgusting.

Dislikes

Nothing much to say here except average salary, slow growth, too many levels for lower level designations(engineers, senior engineers, etc).

Work

The work is good at start but becomes boring with time as usual. As the company is in commercial vehicles do not expect latest technology to be a part of your work. You will have to work on same technology and same projects for years.

There is no scope of on job training to most of the employees,company is growing at a rapid pace however experienced personnel are getting lower increments.You don't have much to learn as the data is limited to less no. of persons in the organization.
HR POLICIES are not defined at all.It depends on your position and knowledge to bargain as they have no rules specifies as per designation.
There is no work life balance as 12 hours in a day are lost in working and commuting.
The company is on the country side so in case of emergency at home,you will be helpless.

Dislikes

there is no work life balance as the working is around 9.5 hrs daily and commuting also takes 2.5 hrs from Faridabad.
Training are rare and done only for specific audits.
Work environment is lazy as most of the employee doesn't seems to be ready to share the things.
There is almost no job security.
The culture is more like any Indian company except the German name.

Work

The work is more like monotonous and boring.You don't often get new projects to learn a lot.
The design is done by Germany so you are not having deep insight about the products.

Company is with good technology based products having technical support from Germany. Good global presence with major share of business. Infrastructure of company is excellent which resembles IT company. Policies and standard are employ favour , however not utilizes properly.

Dislikes

Although it is MNC company it is still struggling to get grow its share of business. It is due to old and sick mentality company is struggling. No work life balance. Man power cut off started without proper reasons. However after new MD joining, company is into positive growth. Hopping for the best.

No specific training program for new joinees, generally people that are hired are from 3-tier colleges, hence lack in basic technical skills, also makes salary quite low as compared to industrial standards, management is a little bossy, but gets the work done.
