    Current Employee - Manager 
    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Beiersdorf full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility of schedule, salary & benefits

    Cons

    Constant change of leadership, high turnover, lack of transition as a steady stream of newcomers join the company and tenured employees leave, no structure/process, intense short-term focus which obviously serves senior (100% foreign) leadership that is on a global track and needs "wins" to move up to bigger and better things.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Beiersdorf full-time

    Pros

    If there was an option to give negative 5 stars, this company would get it The only positive thing is good insurance. If you don't mind working in a dead end job with no opportunity to advance, this might be the job for you.

    Cons

    Where do I start? (1.) Very low pay (2.) Unrealistic goals (3.) Unbalanced workload for good employees, if you demonstrate the ability to handle the load, expect more. (4.) Company policy seems to change depending on who you are (5.) Benefits you are told when hired change when you try to use them (6.) Work life balance is ridiculous, post for overtime and then you only work 30 hours (7.) No concrete direction of the Company other than pinching pennies (8.) Classic Micromanagement mentality (9.) Management throws what they do for you in your face (10.) Employees are not rewarded when milestone achievements are made (11.) Corporate malfeasance and unethical business practices at it's finest
