    I worked at German American Chamber of Commerce New York full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work-time is flexible and co-workers are often focused and friendly. We received a lot of latitude to create or expand side projects that we thought might enrich client experience, and were given a good amount of autonomy with lots of support for central tasks.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic by nature, the GACC has a rigid internal structure and it is difficult to move laterally. Infighting and acting out is often ignored or unresolved, leaving tensions within groups lingering for .... years. Management relies on the goodwill of employees to solve conflicts created by ambiguous professional boundaries and unequal employee investments.

    Advice to Management

    Create core policies and procedures and clearly define roles, while leaving room to expand upon them. Management should consider enrolling directors in management and conflict resolution courses.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at German American Chamber of Commerce New York (New York, NY) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was merely a discussion about the role and my interests in German and my background with the culture/language. I believe they just wanted to make sure I would be a good fit in the team and that my German language skills were on target.
