    poor leadership - good salary

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    the salary is rather good compared to what is generally paid for this job, colleagues and managers are very friendly, international environment

    Cons

    due to a very flat organization there are only little carreer chances, little acknowledgment for good performance, leadership is very poor and the same applies to HR, performance reviews are rather based on individual perception than achievements which can be measured (e.g. no key performance indicators)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    improve leadershipskills within the management team, introduce instruments which allow to measure the employee's performance, more transparence, improvements in HR qua availability and skills

    9-5 job without future perspective but with decent salary

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Account Coordinator
    Former Employee - Account Coordinator

    Pros

    It is an informal environment, Ideal for part-timers with not much career ambition and that have fullfullment outside the work environment

    Cons

    Matrix organization, nobody know who is responsible of what, and at the end it is always your fault.
    Lack of leadership. Very poor HR. They don't even have KPI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change organization structure, prize entrepreneurship and initiative. Clarify company goals and set KPI. DO not make promise you cannot mantain (career?), nor lie about petty issues, as it only disrupt your credibility.
