From Everything.Sucks

Heraeus is a German technology group with a focus on precious and special metals, medical technology, quartz glass, sensors and specialty light sources. Founded in Hanau in 1851, the company is one of the largest family-owned companies in Germany in terms of revenue.

A former employee shares his disappointing experience on indeed.com, "Heraeus was an excellent company when I first started working for them. They believed in promoting within and developing teams. HR dept. was always willing to help. The last 3 yrs of my employment the company brought on new management and HR personnel. You no longer had a name just an employee number. Our turn over rate increased to 200%, customer complaints increase and management only cares about how they can throw around their power. Safety and Quality was no longer number one just mass production. Unsafe working environments. Employees were treated like garbage and they no longer believed in promoting within. The team culture changed from team work to a cut throat culture. They expected single operator to run production in 2 to 3 different production areas, which use to be a three person process. negative atmosphere. Management and HR do not care for the employees, employees are constantly threaten with their job. Would not recommend this place for employment."

"Employee morale was low, constantly being threaten with your job. No respect for employees. Even started making employees ask permission to use the restroom. Low Quality product and only focused on high volume. Safety was only a concern if it did not interfere with production if it did then we would continue the unsafe act to keep production going. . This place use to be a great place to work until we started placing people in management and supervisory position that did not understand our business. We lost over 47% of our business. HR was hands off and if you had any issues you were to call a 1-800 number. Would not recommend working there, unless you enjoy a negative work environment."

Material Processor (Former Employee) says

"You will never feel good about your job from the workers complaining about everything to management doing nothing to help no raises ever and no job advancement. The upper management has no respect for its under employees"
