    I have been working at arvato AG full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the pros of working in arvato include the flexible time, the friendly colleagues, and cheap food from Microsoft's canteen. My salary is good now after working for a number of years, but this may be different for new hires.

    Cons

    It's hard to get a decent pay raise as well as a bonus. A of staff hired are fresh from school and not experienced in the work place so you may find yourself sitting around more incompetent colleagues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe invest more in some of your staff.

    The outsourcer in my city is absolutely terrible, they fire peolple without rewarding the employee as the law requires them in my country. also, there should be more part time possitions available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, and please make sure the prices you give away for the employees are not being stolen by the floor managers.
