    Very limited opportunities for the employees to grow in the company
    Huge silos between sections and departments
    Not open to employees with non German educational & professional background

    Head of sections are not motivated and do not care about the growth of their employees
    Promotions are limited and whenever they take place are granted based oj politics and not on merit
    Most employess are very old and not willing to share knowledge

    Pay attention to new talents and give them the chance to grow
    If the company wants to grow then the management should not be myopic but being open to attract talents from all over the world
    Failed M&A have demotivated employees who are afraid of being fired in the view of cost cutting measures
