Don't join JMP!

10/18/2023 - Junior Managers Program (JMP) at Budapest
Recommends
Positive outlook
Approves of CEO

Pros

The new office in Budapest is nice, but it lacks a personal touch. Too big, feels like a modern way of keeping slaves.

Cons

You go through 6 rounds of interviews, including a personality test, which takes a long time. HR promises you everything, and reality settles in shortly after you join. They lie about the contract, fail to mention important details and deny to address them once you sign. The whole concept of JMP in Hungary is flawed. HR hires for positions where receiving departments have no headcount but would like some. It's a mentor roulette - HR sells the whole program as a great opportunity, with you taking the lead on setting up your stage plan (4x6 months rotation plan) with the help of your mentor - only for this to turn out to be false. My rotation plan was already set in stone, and my so-called "mentor" was not interested in my needs or opinion, only their own. If you get a mentor who sucks, you're stuck with them for 4 years. They will try to intimidate and blackmail you into staying, and if you decide to speak up honestly, they will fire you - just like it happened to me. Currently, about 80% of JMPs leave Bosch after the program ends. Senior management does not care about JMP as they are too occupied with investigating whether employees pay for all items at the restaurant. If you're okay with being a corporate lapdog and keeping your mouth shut, feel free to choose Bosch Hungary.

Diversity is an integral part of our corporate strategy and is anchored as one of our values in the “We are Bosch” mission statement. For us, diversity is reflected in the uniqueness of our associates, their personalities, experiences and perspectives. By including everyone and ensuring equal opportunities we unleash our full potential.

 

Cultural Diversity 

We are convinced that our great cultural diversity strengthens us. As a global player, people from more than 150 different nations work at Bosch.

  • More than 2,200 expats per year

Generations 

Competence has nothing to do with age. What counts for us is the combination out of experiences and fresh, innovative ideas. We ensure a working atmosphere, in which up to five generations can collaborate effectively. With our concepts for lifelong learning, health care management and systematic know-how and experience exchange, we create the base for a successful cooperation across all generations.

Everyone should bring themselves in authentically at Bosch.

Selected highlights and activities:

  • Associate network b:proud, including an ally initiative
  • Promotion and sponsoring of the initiative PROUT@Work

 

Persons with disabilities 

We foster our innovation by focusing on the individual competences of our associates, not their limitations. That‘s why we create a working culture, which considers and appreciates the special needs and competences of every single associate. Everyone is part of the diversity and brings in their special competences and strengths.
