    Growth should be shown by increasing the volume sales through ethical ways, not by deducting the poor field managers expense (T.B.M's)..

    Pros

    Die Benefits sind recht gut, sollten aber auch als Schmerzensgeld betrachtet werden. Tarif, Zeiterfassung, gute Verkehrsanbindung mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln (Wiesbaden-Delkenheim).

    Cons

    Rücksichts- und respektloser Umgang mit den Mitarbeitern, ständige Reoganisationen ohne positive Entwicklung. Fadenscheinige Unternehmenswerte, die nicht gelebt werden. Ein zahnloser Betriebsrat, auf den sich der Mitarbeiter nicht berufen sollte. Fluten informationsleerer eMails, während die wirklich wichtigen Dinge nicht kommuniziert werden. Druck, Frust, Stress, weinende Kollegen im Großraumbüro. Niemals wieder!

    Advice to Management

    Das Vertrauen der Mitarbeiter gewinnen und dieses nicht missbrauchen. Stabile Strukturen schaffen und das furchtbare Angstregime beenden. Mitarbeitern die Würde wiedergeben.
