    Pros

    Good growth company with good brand image and ESOPS. Good for tech related guys

    Cons

    lots of internal politics and no proper training . Found my manager and his manager very unprofessional and failed in providing a congenial atmosphere for utilizing employee's abilities to full extent for the benefit of organization.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make culture more dynamic rather than allowing more politics to crop up.

    Pros

    sehr kreativ
    Mitarbeiter werden laufend bespasst
    Sehr internationale und nette Kollegen und Vorgesetzte
    Sehr gute, gesunde und einfache Strategie - das Unternehmen wird trotz allem noch auf Jahre erfolgreich sein

    Cons

    Bürokratie - man ist v.a. mit sich selbst beschäftigt
    Probleme werden gemessen und verwaltet anstatt gelöst, Prozessfokus fehlt komplett
    Führung wird nicht geschult noch wird man deswegen befördert, Management durch die Bank irgendwie "nett" und durchaus recht intelligent (sowie die meisten bei Amazon), aber halt nicht für den Job geeignet.
    Innovationssucht anstatt operational Excellence

    Advice to Management

    Managen anstatt endlos-Reviews - Informieren anstatt Bespaßen - Strategie herunterbrechen auf den Bereich anstatt vor lauter Bäumen den Wald nicht mehr zu sehen
