    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Deutsche Bundeswehr full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Secure position, good educational opportunities, possibilities to travel internationally (US, European Union)

    Cons

    Planning can be complicated, especially in the first 2 years (if you enlist for 8+ years) as even fixed schedules are subject to change (sometimes on last minute - Friday to arrive on Monday at the other end of Germany instead of 8 weeks later).

    I have been working at Deutsche Bundeswehr for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Salary paid on time; Benefits package automatically, no negotiations over benefits necessary

    Cons

    Salary not on line with local competitors; no upward movement possible for civilians;

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate job descriptions and adjust salaries to comparable levels; send employees to continuing education to keep up with current policies and regulations; value and reward extra personal efforts performed by civilians just as done with uniformed employees, success in doing so will show by qualified personnel staying with the organization rather than leaving

    Cons

    poorly organised some times. most of the time you are missing equipment or other things, and its kind of gambling wich officers you get.

    Advice to Management

    i have honestly no idea how to reform a 200000 man Army,so i cannot state it right now

    Pros

    Outstanding work environment; the leadership of the school truly cares about providing a quality education to German staff officers.

    Cons

    Positions at the school are all government-related, so they are not open to the general public.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Deutsche Bundeswehr full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good tough training! You get to work with professionals at every level.

    Cons

    Sometimes you spend a lot of time sitting around doing nothing or just cleaning your equipment after a few days in the woods. Lack of money for training and ammunition!! Often had no ammo to go shooting because there was no money. That is simply ridiculous considering that paratroopers should be an elite unit. Also if you don't stay long enough you will miss you on certain training opportunities because again the Bundeswehr...

    Advice to Management

    Stop behaving like a poorly managed company and behave like a military.
