  1. "Office Assistant"

    I worked at ERGO Group part-time

    Pros

    Decent pay for student positions, great (former) location in the city of Cologne, good cooperation between the smaller teams

    Cons

    Suppressive atmosphere, aggressive and rough management, offices are grey and cold during winter

    Advice to Management

    Paying even a tiny bit of attention to your employees would probably be hugely beneficial to the atmosphere and help getting rid off the bad reputation insurance companies are associated with so consistently.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at ERGO Group part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Colleagues are very approachable and understanding despite being a temporary staff. They make an effort to really know you as a person and not just some other person who works at the company.
    They give room for trainees to learn, mistakes made are forgiven and they don't put too much pressure on you, neither do they exploit part- timers being "cheap labour" like many organisations which employs temporary staff.

    Cons

    None of them being unmanageable.

    Pros

    Excellent pay, as always in the financial services industry.

    Cons

    Poor management
    Administrate, administrate, administrate ... just don't actually DO anything
    Sales people sometimes willfully rip off customers. If they are caught, there are no consequences.
