    Pros

    One can learn a lot by working at DB, it is a company with a huge potential with a great opportunity to become really successful

    Cons

    Very political, strategy not fitting the company, management style based on persons rather than processes

    Advice to Management

    Work on processes at all levels. Let your employers use their brains where they will bring most and codify things that need to be codified, so that people don't need to discover the right way to do things every time.

    Pros

    Businesses get the tax advantage of deducting plan contributions, including health insurance, life insurance, and pension plans.
    Employees often will accept better benefits in lieu of a higher salary, which can be a savings to the business.
    Offering benefits to employees also can be advantageous to a business owner, who may be able to get personal benefits for less money than if he or she purchased them privately.
    Offering health insurance has been shown to decrease absenteeism and improve employee health and morale; those with coverage are more likely to seek preventative care and live overall healthier lives.

    Cons

    The more benefits a business offers, the more it must pay for administrative overhead.
    The cost of health insurance has steadily risen, making it less and less affordable to employers, and making financial planning difficult from year to year (although the small business provisions of the Affordable Care Act have altered this balance by incentivizing employer-funded benefits).
    Offering benefits creates concerns regarding legal compliance, which in turn causes a company to incur legal fees.
    Mistakes made in benefit plans can lead to costly lawsuits, or to regulatory fines.

    Advice to Management

    Employers who offer benefits to their employees typically attract better talent and cultivate more loyalty and productivity among their staff. But this also comes with greater scrutiny and exposure to state and federal employment laws. If you have any questions about legal compliance with respect to employee benefits contact a local attorney for a free initial legal assessment to learn how they can help prevent turning benefits into liabilities. Keep uo good work
