    Pros

    They have a Global recognition program which can't get any better than that

    Cons

    Most of the time there is not much to do, requests can come in at any time and some days unexpectedly after lunch time the requests start to pilling up.

    Advice to Management

    I do recommend a training program for the new hires, I remember the first few weeks when I started working there wasn't much to do and all the new hires had to shadow existing employees to get an idea of what they where doing which did not help us much.

    Pros

    young dynamic team, friendly atmosphere, challenging tasks, a lot of upcoming work because of new corporate branding

    Cons

    three months are too short to get your own project or get in touch with colleagues who are working abroad.

    Advice to Management

    six months internship might be a better option in order to get more things done and enable your interns to assume more responsibility

    Pros

    Excellent duty of care for the employee. arvato constantly looks for entrepreneurship and empowers people well. Benefits and career advancement opportunities are second to none.

    Cons

    The desire and need to comply with client's requirements sometimes interferes with good employment practices. Because of the high demanding nature of its client base, arvato is sometimes micromanaged to a halt.

    Advice to Management

    Internal changes shouldn't get in the way of selective partnering. Not all expansion is good expansion. Competition is tough in the BPO market but reputation loss is harder to reverse.
