    Pros

    Agile working environment.
    If you are adaptive and competent enough, you can be success in anywhere.
    The same, there are a lot of people who likes to complain, they can't success in anywhere.

    Cons

    Some people with old-way thinking of mind set are limiting the momentum of company.
    But don't worry about them, just stay on your focus (goal of your career/life), you may make a different on it.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at arvato Systems (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nette Kollegen
    gute Büroausstattung
    technologisch gut aufgestellt
    Gehört zum Bertelsmannkonzern (damit erhält man auch eine Gewinnbeteiligung, die an die Vorstandsboni gekoppelt ist)

    Cons

    Bezahlung geht nicht nach Leistung
    Gehaltsspünge unmöglich selbst wenn man super Ergebnisse liefert (nachweislich bessere Ergebnisse als andere Kollegen, die befördert wurden)
    Alte Firma wurde innerhalb des Bertelsmannkonzerns in die Arvato Systems verschoben - sietdem werden die Sozialstandards immer weiter verschlechtert (Pensionvertrag für neue Mitarbeiter nichts mehr Wert, Urlaubsanspruch für neue Mitarbeiter von 30 auf 28 Tage gesenkt, vermögenswirksame Leistungen für neue Mitartbeiter gestrichen).
    Management hat keinen langfristigen Plan - es geht nur um die jährliche Rendite.
    Konstruktive Kritik der Mitarbeiter am Management wird ignoriert (90% schlechte Bewertungen trotzdem keine Änderungen)

    Advice to Management

    Kritik aus Januargesrpächen annehmen und nicht genauso weitermachen wie bisher
    Gehaltsentwicklungspläne für alle Mitarbeiter mit klaren quantitaiven Vorgaben, was zu erreichen ist.
    Sozialstandards aufbauen statt abbauen.
    Management macht seit Jahren Minus, übernimmt dafür aber nicht die Verantwortung.
