    Pros

    Paid training , learned a lot about Ally Bank

    Insensitive to illness/disability,it's not what you know who you,high school atmosphere

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone fair, by letting ALL people with doctors note come back to work,instead of terminating them while they're out sick,stop the favoritism. And if you do fired someone atleast contact them and let them know.

    I have been working at arvato AG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good training, good hours, coworkers are great. Supervisors are open to new ideas. Open door policy when it comes to talking to management.

    Cons

    Low starting wage. Raises are small and far between. Short lunch break. Could be more open about what and how to advance. As well as what the rewards of advancement are.

    Advice to Management

    Arcs to needs something like Enterprise has a management trainee track. With clear goals and benchmarks. Including pay information so people can really develop a career.

    Pros

    LOL. I wish I could see there is a pro for working here. The only pro I can say is quitting was the best decision I ever made.

    Cons

    I regretted my decision working here the first day I started. I tried to see the best but there's really not much to see. Their network and systems are archaic! HR spends too much time playing "friends" with employees which makes it hard to trust management. They promote anyone to management with little to no experience. Pay is less than average especially for the amount of hours they require you to work. Work space is small and dirty. A ton of office gossip. Horrible. Do not pass go. Run as fast as you can.

    Advice to Management

    What a joke. Anyone can be promoted to management as long as you know the right people. HR is a joke. Senior management is a joke. Stop acting like you are all in high school.

    Pros

    It was an extremely good company and I was excited to work there, everything went smoothly with day to day operations.

    Cons

    There were times where it felt as if it was hard to move up the ladder and it was also very competitive so late nights and early mornings

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to contact the people who post about this website as it is important to make them feel more welcomed and excited about the company, ASF is an awesome place to work

    I worked at arvato AG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Soda machine in cafeteria and decent benefits (but you pay a lot for them)

    Cons

    Negative work atmosphere, lots of management with zero team building skill. Impossible to advance unless you kiss the butt of a lower management and decide to get into 'the circle'. If accepted into the circle; advancement is possible and you really do not need reasoning skills or business experience, but the pay is still not in line with similar jobs. The culture is very cutthroat and anything said or done can and will be held against you. Arvato in Pleasant Prairie is a job, but not a career.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees market value for their work. teach your managers how to manage.
