former entrepreneurial company facing challenges to keep people motivated due to accepted lack of leadership

2,8
Nicht empfohlen
Angestellte/r oder Arbeiter/inHat zum Zeitpunkt der Bewertung bei Digital Charging Solutions GmbH in München gearbeitet.

Gut am Arbeitgeber finde ich

Business model, salary and offices, vision & mission

Schlecht am Arbeitgeber finde ich

Insane meeting schedule, unproductive meetings and lack in great leadership are demotivating people and limit creativity

Verbesserungsvorschläge

Alignment in the leadership board and starting to trust each other as well as your employees - integrity needs to be lived not juts claimed, and skipping your own political agenda is mandatory if the company should be rescued. Otherwise all agile and entrepreneurial people will keep on leaving. The toxic environment that is created from top down is floating into the company and its extremely sad to see what it has turned into. You cannot claim being an agile company and young and cool, with a great mission and vision when you do not believe and trust into the business model, people and the system of new work yourself.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

Atmosphere has changes slowly for the past years, a cultural change was happening - What used to be company with extremely smart people having fun together and driving a vision and mission everyone was buying into, is now turning into a downward spiral - as communication has turned into a toxic and dangerous environment - Key people are leaving even without any opportunity lined up - some are still fighting mainly because they believe into the former founders management, realising slowly that its helpless to fight against an atmosphere of mistrust into each other and not believing into the business model. Instead of having the company, DCS and its people as main priority, it is often about power and politics.

Image

Generally good image, working on e-mobility and being a subsidiary of BMW/Daimler & BP is for many people important for employer branding, however rumours in the market are increasing that atmosphere and morale are declining based on the above

Work-Life-Balance

Working for DCS is very demanding, however it used to be very much fun and people were always walking an extra-mile - with the new cultural change it seems its somehow expected, driving more and more people into part-time for starting businesses on the side.

Karriere/Weiterbildung

Generally development is supported with individual budgets, however to cut time out of the calendars is extremely difficult

Gehalt/Sozialleistungen

Salaries are above market average, however promotions and regular salary increases are below inflation rate, therefore this advantage might melt away over time

Umwelt-/Sozialbewusstsein

Company is working in a sustainable business model and trying to do a lot generally, however, some of the LSB are often flying rather than taking a train and of course always a taxi rather than bus/train

Kollegenzusammenhalt

Within the teams colleagues are still supporting each other, as well between different departments. Support into direction of Senior management is declining.

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

Basically there are no elder (+55 years) people working at DCS

Vorgesetztenverhalten

Creativity and entrepreneurial thinking in the beginning and lived by the former founders management team are now clashing with group concern thinking and risk averse management style motivated by fear ("you need to tell people what to do").
Last year a reorg was set up - meant to become more agile, empower people and giving them the biggest freedom to decide. An implemented leadership board was only meant to step-in for critical decisions, whenever it cannot be decided on V-team level - the complete opposite is reality, everything needs to be discussed and decided in the leadership board as nobody is trusting anyone (they do not trust each other). They are constantly fighting behind the doors and everyone knows. What was thought to be agile has slowed down processes and demotivates people on a daily basis. Entrepreneurial thinking and creative ideas are held down.

Arbeitsbedingungen

Very nice offices and team events - good set of benefits

Kommunikation

Communication used to be very candid and open - its getting more and more quiet as it seems one is anyway not heard and it is starting to get very political - besides that behind the scenes talks have increased and you can see that there are side conversations during meetings - this is creating an atmosphere of missing trust and integrity - unfortunately floating down from top level (the fish...). Meetings are unproductive and no decisions are made, as people do not feel they are allowed to. Even on LSB-level long meetings without any outcome are often. Planned new work model with focus time and meeting free afternoons are often overbooked by even those that should lead by example. Lack of leadership is accepted in individual cases.

Gleichberechtigung

Generally women are treated very equally - only concern, what used to be a directors team with at least two women in senior management (Finance & HR), is now reduced to six German white man leadership - however on V-team management level more young women are equally in charge.

Interessante Aufgaben

Generally the business model is complicated but very future oriented and depending on the department finding your space of creativity might still be possible. Very interesting and fast moving market. Being part of the needed climate change environment feels good and is giving you the feeling of being part of something bigger you can contribute to every day.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

Wir sind immer noch ein kleines Unternehmen in Berlin, aber da die Belegschaft schnell wächst, wird das Team jeden Tag stärker und wir finden immer mehr Gelegenheiten, uns miteinander zu verbinden, so wie COVID nachlässt.

Gleichberechtigung

Hier werden alle gleich behandelt und respektiert. Dies ist auch Teil des Onboardings, damit jeder versteht, dass wir ein Team sind und nicht wie die alten hierarchischen Unternehmen arbeiten.

Chaotic and Stressful Environment, but steep Learning Curve

2,8
Nicht empfohlen
Ex-Angestellte/r oder Arbeiter/inHat bei Digital Charging Solutions GmbH in München gearbeitet.

Gut am Arbeitgeber finde ich

You get very quickly responsibility and you can learn a lot, if you can arrange yourself with the environment

Schlecht am Arbeitgeber finde ich

Lack of processes and clear responsibilities mixed with a high workload and high turnover rate create a chaotic and stressful environment

Verbesserungsvorschläge

Set some time aside to pause, reflect and fix organisational and technical liabilities, e.g. introduce dedicated processes and responsibilities. Start from the top and it will trickle down, your organization will perform much better eventually

Arbeitsatmosphäre

To me, it felt superficially positive on the outside, but deeply intransparent and often biased on the inside.

Image

In my opinion, there is a good image on the outside due to the shareholder story, but not so within the company (a lot of employees are frustrated after a while) and also not so good within the emobility industry (feeling like often viewed as a threat, with a reputation as not being a trustworthy partner).

Work-Life-Balance

Nope, do not fool yourself. In my view, this is a neither start-up anymore, nor grown-up yet company in a fast paced environment with a management that cannot say no to clients.

Karriere/Weiterbildung

Opportunities for trainings or certificates with a dedicated development budget exist. Careerwise, I believe your chances are very slim for internal promotions beyond a senior title to your entry role. There is already an excess of management roles, which the business model most likely cannot sustain.

Gehalt/Sozialleistungen

Competitive deals for early hires and management, not so for new hires.

Umwelt-/Sozialbewusstsein

Its an IT company focussed on emobility charging, duh!

Kollegenzusammenhalt

A great bunch of international people, who are ready to commit a lot of extra hours to contribute to a vision, and who support each other a lot on the operational level.

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

I believe nobody outside C-level works here with age above 40. That should say it all

Vorgesetztenverhalten

Throughout my time there I have witnessed some deeply troubling, unprofessional acts and situations, such as lack of leadership, empathy and support for employees when adequate and needed, (miss)handling of burn-outs and removals, decisions based on politics and nepotism and a lack of respect and appreciation for the work done by some employees.

Arbeitsbedingungen

Neat new office and very good IT equipment

Kommunikation

Regular updates, but at some point you understand that its just a lot of positive or superficial talk. I felt there is a culture of not talking about problems openly

Gleichberechtigung

An image of a diverse, equal opportunity workforce is cultivated to the outside. In my eyes, reality is different, as management and decision makers are predominantly white, ex-bmw, german, male and married to their work. If you fit that type, great. Everyone else is just a cog in the machine

Interessante Aufgaben

This is the one good reason. You get exposed to a lot of different challenges, you will receive far reaching responsibility early on and you can become an expert with a currently high-in-demand skill set, on which you can build a career elsewhere

Used to be an amazing company, but turned into a toxic environment over the last years.

Gut am Arbeitgeber finde ich

The team spirit outside management is great, as well as the office space and its location.

Schlecht am Arbeitgeber finde ich

Toxic environment. Leadership team is fighting constantly against each other.
Issues that were intensively discussed years ago are still on the agenda today. Management doesn't listen to their own employees but rather hires outside advisors who have no understanding whatsoever of the business, but cost a lot of money to provide answers and presentations employees have been pointing out for years. That wasted money on advisors would have been better spent on salary increases or bonuses!
Company lost a lot of employees in 2021 due to a poorly set up and even worse executed change management, which wasn't thought through at all. Now they promote within their own ranks, because they can't find good people to replace the great ones who left. Work-Life-Balance is not existing. Looking at the charging environment altogether, this company will most likely not last as it is today.

Verbesserungsvorschläge

Start from scratch. Set up working processes, as headcount only will not make the difference. Also- the industry mentioned here is not Automobile, but IT...

Work-Life-Balance

Meh

Gehalt/Sozialleistungen

There is much more to earn in other companies, especially now that the job market is turning.
