    I have been working at Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good cars to drive at cheaper rates. Nice building and snacks (way less than other bay area companies)

    Cons

    Recent great reviews are fake and baked by who got the most benefit by CEO or even by the CEO because he mentioned on his first town-hall meeting that he will change the outlook of the company in glassdoor. People reached out to CEO directly with the faith that he will bring the +ve change, and mentioned whats going on internally and how managers are bad in different groups. Interestingly, A manager whose 40% team quit the company in 2017, was promoted by this CEO. HR didn't even do anything. CEO is young and immature for this position, He doesn't have guts to hire someone for VP level position. He is relying on exiting bad managers who don't even know how to build highly productive software teams. I think, CEO is trying to secure his position and making the culture worse. Employees were hoping things will get better and CEO will get rid of those managers who were driving the negativity within the company. Nothing is changed, it got worse now.

    I worked at Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America

    Pros

    Benefits, e.g. vacation time and pay at least in my case, also 401K is best in industry.

    Cons

    Lack of any future vision whatsoever in managements eyes. Poor management direction, leadership - you name it, its poor No room for advancement at all No real cutting edge engineering work is done here despite what the other review says, that person must have worked at a different location. Its terrible all around, I could write a book here. Communication is terrible within the same building not to mention the Germany and American interaction Germany has not faith in the management running things on this side of the pond.
