Run my Germans. German customers come first, any other customer/countries are way down the list in terms of priorities.

I worked at Gigaset Communications

Pros

Technologies are good, specially the Gigaset products that use DECT. The quality of the products is outstanding, and in fact, too good for the North American market.

Cons

Customers outside Germany are faced with being much lower priority in terms of product availability. Local team never gets taken seriously by the German management. Every year the number of folks working must match the revenues - thus there is never an opportunity to work on growth - no long term vision is possible as it is always a short term view. Like a bank making short term investments, wanting a short term return. Future be dammed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to take more risks. Way too conservative for business outside Germany.
