    Opportunities are not what I expected

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people are fantastic to work with and the company is genuine in its caring for the customer.

    ConsI was advised I would be able to move through positions quickly and increase my rate as I went. I am now in my third position and my rate has not increased at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more up front about the opportunities that are available to the worker.

    Easy Internship, but lacked training

    Intern In International Customer Service (Former Employee) Kassel (Germany)

    Pros- Great atmosphere in the office; nice and helpful coworkers
    - Flexible work hours; 35 hour work week (and no overtime)

    Cons- The on-the-job training was the bare minimum and had to figure a lot of stuff out on my own
    - Not enough work to do

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe point of an internship is to receive on-the-job training, which was almost nonexistent in the department in which I worked in. The interns trained their successors before they left. My suggestion is that experienced employees should be more involved in the training of the interns.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
