    I worked at Giesecke & Devrient full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are some of the best out there.

    Cons

    Most employees are extremely overworked. Hourly production employees are poorly paid, poorly trained and forced to work extreme overtime. Salaried workers are underpaid and it is considered a badge of honor to work 12+ hour days, everyday. It's a "me" first environment where teamwork is virtually non-existent. Nothing happens quick as everything has to go through headquarters in Munich, what should take a few days takes months. The company has been driven into financial crisis and "cost savings measures" have been enacted - i.e. laying off hundreds internationally.

    Advice to Management

    Recommit to your workers... pay them commensurate to what other companies/industries pay. Get rid of your bloated management levels. Address issues when they are discovered, not when they become problems. Be proactive.
