    I worked at Bilfinger full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    In the PPP division access to senior management was good, they were approachable and friendly and had a less traditional attitude.

    The company seems to have a lot of money compared to others.

    Cons

    PPP division: employees and senior managers who performed poorly were not managed or dealt with, leading to poor leadership and low morale.
    Head office: it is a very middle-class, male, Caucasian, hierarchical culture. Employee engagement is not effective, especially during a time when it matters most - in a major organisational re-structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In everything you do, think about your employees and customers, not yourselves!

    Pros

    Unfortunately not many positives to disclose.

    Not many as the senior staff do not communicate.

    Pros

    Company pays for health insurance, additional courses, language courses. Compensation and benefits are satisfying. There is possibility to work in different cities not only in Warsaw. there are different divisions for example road, engineering, bridge departments.

    Cons

    when you start to work for Bilfinger Berger it is not easy to get "good" money.
    you need to be aware that the place you work depends on the city where the contract is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    talk more with ordinary employees

    Pros

    Company in a good shape even during the crisis. There are many different areas where the company is active from construction to environmental technologies.

    Cons

    The companies in the group are not very well integrated, it is difficult to learn more and cooperate or switch among the different subsidiaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to have a talent management program, which is totally missing and we would need better focus on human resource development in general.

    Pros

    breitgefächerte Beschäftigungsmöglichkeiten. man kann zwischen den juristischen Einheiten wechseln und sogar zwischen den verschiedenen Arbeitsbereichen. Internationale Mobilität ist möglich, wenn das gewünscht wird. Lokale und juristische Einheiten sind höchst unabhängig und stark.

    widely spread job opportunities, it is possible to switch between legal entities and even between areas of job type. If wanted, international mobility is possible. Local and legal entities are highly independent and strong.

    Cons

    Das Unternehmen basiert auf typischen Strukturen des Bauingenieurwesens mittelständischer Unternehmen. Die Reife der Geschäftsprozesse sind katastrophal. Die Geschäftsführer sitzen im Elfenbeinturm und kommen nicht nach unten zur Erde, um mit den niederen Arbeitern zu sprechen.

    Company comes from typical civil engineering structures of business and mid market. Maturity of business processes is worse than poor. C-Level and leading circles sit in ivory tower and is not able to come down to earth and talk to the crackerjacks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fliegen Sie nicht andauernd auf einer Höhe von 30.000 Fuß, sondern kommen Sie runter, krempeln Sie die Ärmel hoch und fragen Sie Ihre Mitarbeiter, wie man das Geschäft zu führen hat. Befreien Sie sich aus der Abhängigkeit von den "Beratern" mit den berühmten 3 oder 4 Zeichen.

    Do not fly on 30,000 feet all the time, but come down, hitch up your knickers, ask your employees how to do business and get out of dependence of all that "consultants" with the famous 3 or 4 characters.
