This is no place for developers.Most of the work is related to support and process. And thus all the opportunities goes to people working in those domains. Management completely works on boot licking and back biting mechanism. Most of the teams are lead by incompetent people who have no idea about the technology whose team they are leading. They survive only on managers mercy and goodwill. Regarding the hoax about free food, 4 out of 5 days you will be eating outside the campus if you love food in any way. It used to be a product organization but slowly they are moving towards service domain. 9.25 minimum office time is already implemented.

Dislikes

There is no team culture. Everybody will try to pull you down in any possible way just to look good to manager. Management also looks for such people. So if you are a developer you might wanna give this organization a pass. You can join only if you wish to solve and close tickets. I did not accept changes in my role and stuck to development profile. Which resulted in less growth and opportunities. Finally after 1.6 years being here i have decided to move on.

Work

For developers there will be minimum work. So your learning curve goes down drastically. And whatever you develop half of it is never realized.So its quite frustating.

The company is open to innovation and is supportive. I loved to work on a very interesting topic the "Fuel Injection System" in coordination with the German counterpart. I had a great learning on the Gasoline Engine. There are even more interesting topics which you would love to learn and work for. My colleagues come from various cultural backgrounds, and we work happily in collaboration. Onsite travel abroad opportunities are reduced nowadays limited to 3 months per 2 or 3 years once.

Dislikes

Compensation is decent, but growth is slow. No work pressure. On the job, training is conducted from time to time which saves the time of the seniors to guide the juniors. Regular system knowledge training is provided which gives a broader knowledge of the whole system. One time achievement awards and performance awards are given to appreciate the good contribution made in the project. Managers are approachable and listen to our feedback or suggestions on the project and take necessary actions for improvements.

Work

I loved to work for the heart of the engine management system- Fuel Injection. Every requirement was challenging and gave more learnings technically. Never I felt bored of work except for few which I felt redundant but are necessary for quality assurance.

Work Life Balance

Dislikes

It is very difficult to get on sites these days. But there are few people who will always keep on going for onsites, no matter what happens. They should give chance to new people. Some times there is office politics.
Some team leads they are exceptional. They will help you and guide you in right direction.Work culture is very good. Good training and certification facilities.
Overall it is good.
If you are a fresher then try avoiding this company. It is purely luck as in which project you will be working. If in some case the project does not deals much with technical things then it may become very difficult after 2-3 years.
But for experienced people if you are looking to get settled down then this is by far the best company.They have very good policies,job security and above all great work life balance.

It's just like a government office . And they don't give a damn about professional ethics . All of their scams are connected with the heads of all the departments. Being one of the victim of a scam .There is no one to hear your complaint . You'll loose your job if you try to report it . I don't like anything in Bosch

Dislikes

Most of the employees are still working at Bosch is because of the 'work abroad' opportunity which is also controlled by group managers and they use it as a weapon , if you mess with him/her your tickets are cancelled or somebody else will take your place . Most of the goddam managers can't even frame a sentence and my blood boils when I hear them talking to foreign clients . Your voice won't even reach HR's cabin in case you want to report this.

Work

Its Hectic not because of work , because you've to beat with a bunch of morons

The company is a service provider to other Bosch entities especially the one in Germany. Indian management sucks. Short term Onsite visits are the plus. Work life balance is better. Freshers from the top colleges, stay away. Otherwise you will be fucked up in future. They is no work here which needs your caliber and no professional growth, other than filling up checklists and copy pasting.

Dislikes

Copy paste job from Germany. They don't even provide a free heath insurance for your family. It's almost becoming an Indian service provider company, which don't have long term inside opportunities and professional growth.

I could say is the food they provide, other than that I didn't find any other pros..

Dislikes

The company is for rather someone who don't wish to learn new but is fine with everyday work.This company is having reputation only because of the name Bosch of the German company. You consistently work on the same project and there are no overseas opportunity or inside the company.Sometimes you may also need to work on Saturday specially in Simulation..They demand innovation and choose the best from campuses but when it comes to pay package it is not satisfactory..People who are capable to flatter their bosses and not interested to learn practically can join this company..Even people who are working here since 5 years have no scope..

Upto 2/3 years it's very nice platform to learn if you are not from automotive domain then learning process slows down. Work-life balance is good but again it's depends on project. You can think of settle down with this company only if you can compromise with salary cause hike is a bit low compared to other same level company.

Dislikes

For my team all ok. Only one thing is there are not much real-time experience you get.

Work

I work in active safety. Starting from requirement engineering to product testing and delivery.

Job security is good. Oppurtunities are terrible. Politics play a huge part in your career growth. Salary/appraisal are arguably the worst. Innovation is a myth. Work life balance is good. Not everything that's free is good, Bosch food comes under this category.

Dislikes

Boring work. No proper appraisal. Office politics. Managers favouring certain employees based on their friendship.

Work

Boring as hell. As I have mentioned above, innovation is a myth and you feel terrible.
