Project Manager

Project Manager (Current Employee) Düsseldorf (Germany)

ProsInternational working environment with lots of career opportunities within the company, especially in the cross-divisions which allows one to be involved on multiple levels, gaining access to different industries. varying from retail operations to real estate / property management, tto energy sustainability initiatives, to classic advertising etc.

ConsIf you are young and striving to prove your talent, after a certain level it becomes impossible to make a jump on the salary scale. Especially now thanks to the planned cut backs, cost-cutting/saving money strategies and forecasted lay-offs.. Old elephants should be eliminated, but since they have been with the company for ages their severance packages would cost alot..

Advice to Senior ManagementStart thinking outside the box. Induce more communication and information flow on lower levels since the middle - bottom employees are demotivated. Encourage more team spirit in tango with the corporate mission, make the people BELIEVE there is a common goal that can only be reached by working TOGETHER, not just by cutting back on administration costs or getting consultants to analyze the work flows, proposing yet another restructuring initiative... there are too many higher level managers which are incompetent but due to their employment period are still sitting in the driver position earning way too much money.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
