    Pros

    Great for a quick start. Not picky with applicants. Paid training. Easy Targets and easy projects. Training is very well executed.

    Cons

    Not a career company although its advertised as such. Up to TL no worries. After that saturated and you need friends in high places.

    Advice to Management

    Work on helping your staff and not berating them. Listen to their ideas as sometimes they might think of something you didn’t.

    I worked at arvato AG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co workers were awesome and helpful. Jim was the manager at the time. Supportive environment. The supervisors were very strange. Free pop, snacks and good coffee. Free arcade games, pool etc. Your own cubicle. Didn't feel like a call center.

    Cons

    Training is HARD and ran by someone I think was on drugs. She kept leaving the training room all of the time and couldnt keep still. I know a druggy when I see one. Once she did training and put you on the floor doing live calls, if you asked her questions she always had a smart remark. I had to pull her to the side to let her know I was not the one.

    Decent salary, good hours, convenient location. Peers are helpful and encouraging. Holidays, health benefits, matching 401k & bonus. Off site opportunities

    Ambivalent upper management, little chance of moving up in company. Parent company in Germany can be ruthless about profit margins yet careless with corporate spending at the highest levels.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication, more consistent review process, more support from middle management, see past short term gains, invest in continuing education
