    Not bad but could be much better

    IT Project Manager (Current Employee) Düsseldorf (Germany)

    ProsAccess to state of the art technology, international team, excellent office space with lots of facilities, chance to work on high profile projects in the industry.

    ConsSenior management lack of strategic vision, not so good HR, moving within the company can be hard, many departments are dependent on external resources who have no loyalty for the company and its interests.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on developing your own people and acquiring permanent skill set resources.

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

     

    Wasn't up to expectations.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMultinational company and awesome learning experience and adhere to the different cultures of the world from just one place ..

    ConsLack of future development plans for almost 99 % of the retail and customer care staff and all goes according to the recommendation. Rather than taking care of the development of front liners all the attentions goes to managers and Senior management staff. Relatively low increment for all the front liners of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide a clear development plan for all the employes. The remuneration and benefits should be according to the expertise and qualifications rather than a nationality or so. Best of luck for all
