    I worked at Oetker Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family friendly hours, great benefits, good line of products and reasonable working environment.

    Cons

    Way too much politics involved. Very slow to make important and needed decisions. Rigid processes with way too many people involved and not conducive to entrepreneurial behavior . A culture of "rank and file"is also another huge problem...

    Advice to Management

    In the era mileniums are joining the work force, it would be impossible to attract and hold young talent...

    "Competitive pay, great work-life balance, but "a rut" in terms of acquiring knowledge/carreer"

    I have been working at Oetker Group (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great: 9 to 5 schedule with some occasions when overtime is needed. In general, the atmosphere is nice (though it greatly varies depending on department and manager) and most of the colleagues are ok.

    Cons

    Reduced knowledge sharing (the employees who could teach others a thing or two are too busy, avoid sharing knowledge or both), reduced communication, rigidity. Many managers and employees in key positions hold on tight to their interests/positions and neglect developing their valuable people, while cutting a few select some slack. A lot of politics and egos/internal conflicts.

    High Quality products.
    Unique market positioning.

    Pros

    Good work environment. Great people to work with. Good work / life balance. Great opportunity to develop and progress in your career.

    Cons

    Many objectives are mandated from head office in Germany. Sometimes preference is given to German counterparts in filling roles and positions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop the team and share strategic objectives so that the team can deliver on them. Work closely with the teams to develop a long term strategy.

    Pros

    Benefits package is quite competitive. Team I worked on was great and I learned a great deal in a short period of time.

    Cons

    Leadership seriously lacks people skills; more focused on progressing their own careers rather than on developing their employees. Minimal knowledge-sharing, outdated procedures, poor employee morale, high staff turnover, lack of growth opportunities or opportunities for professional development.

    Advice to Management

    Start investing in your employees. Stop turning a blind eye to the internal conflicts within the organization. Be more progressive.
