Two lay-offs within one year. The Management has no clear plan, mindless decisions and insecurity all over
Gut am Arbeitgeber finde ich
The team spirit in individual departments. There were very cool personalities in the company who, unfortunately, are gradually leaving or being kicked out.
Schlecht am Arbeitgeber finde ich
Individuals in management make decisions based on subjective opinions.
Unfortunately, much of the company's work is now based on who likes whom. Thus, relevant positions are excluded from important meetings/decisions and not informed. It has become a constant selling of people's roles. If you are lucky and you are seen, you can do the job you are hired for.
It's not much about teamwork anymore. You also notice that the people who have been hired in the last 6-12 months have a different mentality. It's a lot about the own ego.
That a consultant from America came in for 3 months, who has the US glasses on and does not understand what the company was unique for in the beginning. Without further ado, it was decided to reduce the marketing team by almost 50%.
Put management in place that knows what it's doing and has a plan and objectives set. The strategy should also not be changed every few weeks, because it does not achieve the - often not very realistic - goals. Employees were let go because there is no strategy in place and no departmental goals were set (The company's hierarchy is not working). As a result, lay-offs are happening and people are dismissed who are said not to have achieved the goals.
Learn to trust the employees and refrain from micro-management. Employees are hired and then have to sell their roles and prove why it's a good thing they've been hired.
The company should establish a hierarchy and it should work properly.
The management should learn that in this highly competitive environment it is not enough to copy the competition.
The company should live the set values. There is talk of being courageous and trying things out, but when employees do so, the Management backs down on the basis of subjective decisions.
Management has no trust in employees, people are hired and kicked out after a very short time because they do not meet expectations.
Communication within the company does not work, everything happens on Slack, there is no filtering of information. Hierarchical coordination does not work. Employees with management responsibility are ignored - when once again headless decisions are made quickly.
The management does not adhere to their set hierarchies, many decisions were made over department heads.
If you're happy enough that your role is still seen as important and you get along well with key people in the company, then you'll have interesting projects too
