I worked at MEDION (Less than a year)
The company pays it's employees on time.
The UK staff tend to be very pleasant to work with.
- Senior management in Germany are very negative - they don't offer local or international staff any encouragement and only criticise - they rarely (if ever) recognise or reward success.
- Expectations are far too high.
- International businesses too tightly controlled by Germany - which results in far too much pressure on the international teams.
- Overall a very negative employer.
Advice to Management
Disgraceful practice and senior management should be ashamed of themselves - this business suffers from endemic bullying - senior directors and managers in German HQ bully junior staff - who in turn bully others - including international colleagues. I have never come across a company that has such a poor culture and internal brand image.
