    No communication and no accountability,

    Jun 29, 2011 - Store Manager 
    CEO Approval

    Great benefits. Good chocolate. Pretty mall.


    The upper management does not have one iota of a clue what is actually involved in running a store. As a result they shell out constant last-minute floor changes, redundant spreadsheet duties, insipid conference calls...they require employees to complete smarmy training videos (depicting customer situations that are not in the least realistic) etc., etc., etc., All this, and more, with no extra payroll provided. But hey--we still have to sell the actual product which they are clearly forgetting.

    Negative work environment, poor managers, nice colleagues

    Feb 22, 2019 - Chef de projet marketing 
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook


    Great colleagues where everyone is trying their best. Unfortunately, you have to expect loosing them as people are fired like trash, or quit after being totally exhausted from the stone age environment. Great ambitions for the brand despite the little achievement.


    1) ZERO CAREER DEVELOPMENT PLAN Management just expects you to stay in your current position forever without salary increase, tuition to gain new competencies, job opportunities. It seems they thrive at creating a blur and complex environment in which you are never able to envision a future. Employees are expected to create their own plan without any guarantee of success or management support. 2) TOXIC WORK ENVIRONMENT Micro management across all business units. It seems every person cannot breathe live or move without the CEO's permission. None of the marketing projects can move if she doesn't agree on every single comma resulting in BU marketing managers to take no responsability, no decision, no balls even when they strongly disagree for their own markets. It creates a negative work environement where everyone criticizes the global marketing decisions but none of the senior managers has the gut to speak for themselves. As a lower ladder manager, you just end being totally annihilated, learning nothing and not working your brain off. 3) WORKLOAD IS NOT EQUALLY DISTRIBUTED Some people are swamped others seem to do nothing. 4) STONE AGE PROCESS AND IT Old people, old process old IT tools and software. 5) ABSOLUTE NO INTERESTS IN CSR OR ECO FRIENDLY PACKAGINGS To produce the chocolate heavy amounts of plastics are used for production, transportation and within the chocolates giftbox. Absolute no interest to at least try to find new consumer and future oriented solutions.
