"The diversity of my activities makes my work thrilling and is reaffirmed every day." - Nadine Jung, Development Engineer Optics
I have been involved in ophthalmic optics for 16 years. It started by studying to be an optician followed by taking a degree in ophthalmic engineering. I have wanted to work with the glasses manufacturer Rodenstock since my studies. My chance came in 2003 and my wish was fulfilled.
I work as an optics development engineer in the "Research and Development Ophthalmic Lenses" department. That way I know what know-how is behind our products. Rodenstock is the technology and innovation leader in the field of lens optics. This is confirmed by the competitive analyses that we conduct. With Rodenstock lenses, our customers have the best imaging characteristics and hence the best lenses. I am very proud of this.
Highly motivated employees stand behind Rodenstock, who only want one thing. They want Rodenstock to put the most innovative products into the market and have the most satisfied customers. All the employees pull together for this. The cooperation between the individual employees and the respectful interactions with each other and with our customers distinguishes Rodenstock's company culture.
My goal is to be involved in the development of new innovative products and to grow together with Rodenstock.
"Even without a visual
impairment, I still like to wear beautiful glasses from
Rodenstock as a fashion accessory."
- Stephanie Herrmann, Assistant International Key Account Management and Emerging Markets
Rodenstock is a traditional and internationally established company that offers many possibilities for further personal and professional development. In addition, Rodenstock is a well-known company with interesting and sophisticated products.
I am convinced by the appealing designs and good quality. Even without a visual impairment, I still like to wear beautiful glasses from Rodenstock as a fashion accessory.
To ensure my further professional and personal development through new challenges and areas of responsibility.
"At Rodenstock, the employees
are the company’s most important
- Rudolf Hanowski, Senior Manager Purchasing Eyewear
The challenge of working for one of the best companies in the ophthalmic optics industry was the reason why I chose Rodenstock 16 years ago.
Rodenstock stands for perfection. Our claim to produce quality can be seen in the complete product range. We don't just talk about it; rather we act on this claim every day.
At Rodenstock, the employees are the company’s most important resource. Each individual is important and is treated appreciatively accordingly.
Continue to be successful with Rodenstock and continue to develop our company culture.
"Rodenstock prevails not only
as a premium brand, but also as an employer through a company
culture that is lived out, and many ways for its employees to
continue to develop."
- Michael Klövekorn, Accounts Receivable, Domestic
Despite several acceptances by other well-known companies, I chose Rodenstock in 2009 for my training to become an industrial business manager. The fact that Rodenstock was a medium-sized, well positioned company with international experience was decisive for my decision, among other things. I also had a positive impression after my job interview. I graduated with flying colours from the IHK as an industrial business manager in February 2011. This performance definitely contributed to subsequently getting a permanent position with Rodenstock. If I look back, then I would make the same decision as I did then.
Compared to other manufacturers, products from Rodenstock are distinguished by their excellent and constantly controlled quality. The name "Rodenstock" also stands for premium quality. The glasses designs appeal to the young and old at the same time. It is really a "cool" and trendy brand, which is distinguished by our collections, among other things, such as Porsche Design or Baldessarini, for example.
These days, the word "company
culture" is unfortunately not put into practice in
large companies. The company culture is one of the
"soft factors" of corporate management. They
also include the hidden and lived out rules of management and
cooperation. The importance and appreciation of an employee that
the company shows to the employee is worth highlighting. These
values can be seen in the work environment, the strong appeal of
the company, the readiness of all employees to work and the
seriousness with which personnel development/further education
and training is practiced. The identification of the employee
with the company is tremendously important and of strategic
I find Rodenstock to be a company that invests a great deal in its employees and gives young professionals the opportunity to become involved and established in the company.
I would like to take the opportunity to develop myself
further professionally and to specialise. In this, I expect and
have experienced the respective "coaching"
from Rodenstock and the support of my superiors who are helpful
to me in this career path. A company has to invest up front to
be able to include qualified and motivated workers in its staff.
That makes a company competitive and successful.
My personal goal in the near future is to master the training/advanced training to become an accountant and to develop my basic knowledge of English. The possibility of a period abroad would be interesting and thrilling at the same time to me, in order to be able to expand my knowledge horizon.
