    I worked at Oetker Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family friendly hours, great benefits, good line of products and reasonable working environment.

    Cons

    Way too much politics involved. Very slow to make important and needed decisions. Rigid processes with way too many people involved and not conducive to entrepreneurial behavior . A culture of "rank and file"is also another huge problem...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the era mileniums are joining the work force, it would be impossible to attract and hold young talent...

    Pros

    Good work environment. Great people to work with. Good work / life balance. Great opportunity to develop and progress in your career.

    Cons

    Many objectives are mandated from head office in Germany. Sometimes preference is given to German counterparts in filling roles and positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop the team and share strategic objectives so that the team can deliver on them. Work closely with the teams to develop a long term strategy.

    I have been working at Oetker Group

    Pros

    Benefits package is quite competitive. Team I worked on was great and I learned a great deal in a short period of time.

    Cons

    Leadership seriously lacks people skills; more focused on progressing their own careers rather than on developing their employees. Minimal knowledge-sharing, outdated procedures, poor employee morale, high staff turnover, lack of growth opportunities or opportunities for professional development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing in your employees. Stop turning a blind eye to the internal conflicts within the organization. Be more progressive.
