    Pros

    Internationales Umfeld,
    Relativ sichere Beschäftigung, wenn man einen Festvertrag hat.
    Mitarbeiter können beim Aktienprogramm teilnehmen zu guten Konditionen.

    Cons

    Ständige Abbaumaßnahmen
    Keine Vertragsverlängerungen
    Einstellungsstopps
    Keine Transparenz, immer wird etwas entschieden und zum Schluss erst mitgeteilt. Die Mitarbeiter haben mittlerweile Existenzängste.

    Advice to Management

    Werdet erwachsen! Ständig versuchen die was zu verändern und Prozesse ohne Gründe umzumodeln. Das Resultat ist dann meist ein Einstellungsstopp bzw. Auftragsrückgang.
