Arbeitsatmosphäre

I’ve been working here for many years now and I can’t believe how fast you can make out of a great international company a „bad“ place to work . Many of our ex-colleagues complain below, sometimes using unacceptable wording, but it definitely shows that something is going wrong and they use this platform to let out their frustration.
There used to be a great workplace atmosphere, but it has changed negatively within the last months. You wanted to motivate people to increase sale, do better job, face the challenge, call instead skype chatting etc., change their thinking, hire new talents, get fresh and innovative thinking.
Result: Good goals, bad execution. Employees are being treated like pupils, not being listened, more control of what we do/who we call/how long. New Talents may appear, but you also hire managers who have nothing in common with real leadership. Nothing can hurt morale of your employees more than feeling like they’re supporting a poor team member.
I wouldn’t say this is the worst place to work, it’s not true. If you have asked me 2 y. ago how am I doing here? I would have said “great”!Unfortunately, unhealthy and incapable management led to toxic atmosphere now.

Vorgesetztenverhalten

It would be great to be involved in decision making, setting new strategy. Many decisions are not clear or understandable.

Kollegenzusammenhalt

I have an impression that many decisions regarding people management are taken accidently, without clear strategy and social responsibility. Due to several dismissals and terminations that followed, there is no community at work anymore - people talk about recent employees fluctuation, about the reasons for leaving the company. Most of the ex-colleagues didn’t want to be a part of eGENTIC anymore. It’s almost 25% of the whole sales team within the last few weeks. Hearing of someone leaving the company is nothing new now. That's depressing..

eGENTIC got used to high employees turnover, but there were other reasons in the past: in most cases geographic move since most of the colleagues are foreigners or romantic relationship.

It is hard to stick together with colleagues in the workplace with high employees turnover.

Interessante Aufgaben

It is all about sales - not always easy since the company deals with personal data, it can be challenging..Products do not really change throughout the years. In case of any development it turns out in test campaigns, it doesn’t work as it should... New ideas/innovation are always welcome.

Kommunikation

Many things are told on the country manager level, less communication on the sales manager level. It creates an atmosphere of having secrets. If you smoke you might learn more, as there is no better place to exchange news as in the front of the building smoking.

Gleichberechtigung

Everyone has equal rights.

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

Not so many of them, but they feel certainly well here

Karriere / Weiterbildung

No education strategy, no opportunity to develop one’s career. The only possibility to climb the career ladder is to be a country manager. The company structure is flat.

Gehalt / Sozialleistungen

Industry average plus bonus on an individual basis. No real salary increase reflecting inflation. If you have achieved additional (unrealistic) turnover goals, you may ask for salary increase in two years at the earliest.

Social benefits: company cars and underground car park (country managers only), the rest of employess can use a parking spot outside the building; mobile phones, free beverages and fruits.

No more benefits to distinguish the company from competition like jobtickets, sport facilities, staff canteen, possibility to take home office – not only 4-6 days per year (mondays and fridays generally not allowed), but depending on individual situation (long distance to work, family reasons).

Arbeitsbedingungen

Computers are not the newest ones - but good enough to work on. Company phone, one tablet per team for business trips. Open-space with air conditioning, new office since 2017. Well equipped kitchen, there’s a nice lunch room. Uncomfortable office chairs.

Umwelt- / Sozialbewusstsein

As far as I know eGENTIC support children with cancer by donating money every year for Christmas. There used to be more interesting social initiatives in the past. In case of environment - waste sorting would be nice.

Work-Life-Balance

No pressure to make over hours, work non-stop and through the weekends. You can get your vacation approved without any problem. Possibility to work part time is an advantage.

Image

Among internet users – very bad due to business we run (lead generation)
Among customers – still one of the top lead generation companies
In the industry: bad news regarding toxic environment spreads quickly and the image has worsened recently. The competition uses the chance to get people on board.
Among employees: depending on individual experience - from very good to very bad

Verbesserungsvorschläge

  • • Improve your communication, especially on the sales management level • Work on your Employer Branding • Do not talk about former employees in a negative way, especially if they had been committed and successful employees for many years. • Listen to your employees, take their suggestions seriously. People management is not made by excel sheets. • Build a real education strategy to promote and develop your talents • Demonstrate good problem solving - do not only expect from your employees to give an answer to a problem. Help, support and try to solve it together, brainstorm ways to fix it, don’t be only observer. • Take responsibility for the outcome of your decisions

Pro

• International environment
• possibility to work part time
• Close to Frankfurt
• Company car (country managers) and mobile phones
• Retention program (possibility to visit one of 2 subsidiaries in Brasil or Singapur after 4 years)
• Free beverages, fruits, nice “Kuschelecke” with table tennis and Kicker
• Company events
• Supporting employees activities outside of work

Contra

• Negative atmosphere
• Leadership style without focus on people as valuable resource
• No sustainable thinking and employee retention – you let talents and loyal employees just go, giving a feeling that everyone is replaceable. “Go if you don’t like it”. Employees join the company and leave managers
• No education strategy, no opportunity to develop one’s career

Kommentar des Arbeitgebers

Dear colleague, Thank you very much for your evaluation and your detailed feedback, which we take to heart. We are aware of the daily challenges and work very focused on them. As you know, eGENTIC has three managing directors and all three live the open door policy. We would be happy if you would talk to one of us directly so that we can further improve eGENTIC with your help.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

This company have gone from a decent atmosphere to a very very toxic and bad one. It's not normal for a place to loose approximately 20 people a year. I've seen people come and go and people do get treated badly. If you do have the luck to get a good manager you can be lucky. From most of the different I've read I can agree on the most of it. These negative stories are for the most part very true.

Funny enough the answers most likely come from people in the management positions who are too blind to see what's going on. Perhaps looking into how you actually are treating your personal and not accepting people being bullied out of the company.

Example for one ex employee that was treated very badly by his manager (By many peoples thinking) but this "Open door policy" only ended up that he was threatened to be sacked. One day this person started to spit blood in the toilet because of stress, his manager didn't care about that I had to drive him to the hospital. This person was also one of the best sales persons in the company by all measurements that the company used.

I would definitely say that people being laid off for no reason doesn't really help people with motivation.

Vorgesetztenverhalten

Well I have to write two here because of how I've seen people being treated by some of the management. Many good middle managers got laid off when others where still there.

My feeling is that the company maybe should listen to the managers that do want to go in a different direction rather than kicking them out. I was working with two different bosses and I had no personal problems with either of them.

However my first manager was fired and the explanation was in my eyes a bit harsh.

Kollegenzusammenhalt

Depends on you as a person but I had no problem with most people and I think they didn't dislike me either too much.

Interessante Aufgaben

Well I don't think the different tasks are too exiting. Most people on the sales/marketing floor doesn't seem to be too motivated. From person to person I guess but for me it became quite boring after a while.

The combination for me when people are treated badly and getting sacked with from time to time boring tasks. Made me look elsewhere.

Kommunikation

You get the standard emails etc send outs with company information. Normal hierarchy but I wouldn't say that the communication is over the top awesome.

Bad information when my boss was sacked.

Gleichberechtigung

Nothing over the top, no sexual things what I know.

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

Most young people working there. Can't say If its good or not.

Gehalt / Sozialleistungen

You should try to get a good offer from the start. After that you have little chance to increase your salary. I think on average the company pays just about that, average.

Arbeitsbedingungen

The office is new but the equipment is very old and you are not going to the office feeling good about your work space. Not a big thing in general but small things that add up.

Tips to improve:
Standing/sitting desks to help with ergonomic.

Umwelt- / Sozialbewusstsein

Company donated money for something during x-mas. Could maybe been better when it came to how the company was dealing with trash etc. (Gelbe sack)

Work-Life-Balance

One of the reasons I left was because I needed home-office. That wasn't available for me. I saw that someone down in others said homeoffice was available but at least not for normal staff maybe for management after a few years work.

The re-implemented something called flex hours but the feeling was that this didn't do any effect on your work-life-balance.

Image

I can just speak for what I know from the clients and they were not very excited about working with eGENTIC but did due to lack of leads in my region.

Verbesserungsvorschläge

  • Improve the office (screens and desks etc)
  • Try to listen to the employees (There is a reason why people are leaving eGENTIC at this rate)
  • If there is problem within the team (also take the employees side into account)
  • General strategy for all GEOS doesn't work. Try to implement different strategy's to different areas I think that would be of benefit.
  • You want to be a "great place to work" It's kind of a kick in the face to the people who's team have been destroyed due to people being fired left and right. eGENTIC could be a very good place to work. Honest to god it could be an amazing place to work If toxic behavior is treated, not just by being fired. Permanent contracts, more flexibility and less control. You are market leads and want's to be like google, but there is a long way to go for being the best place to work. For this reason I do not recommend eGETNIC at this current state, but If there is improvement yes this could be a good place to work.

Pro

- We had skiitrip and partys very fun.
- Easy going most of the time

Contra

- Office could improve.
- Atmosphere and company culture.

Kommentar des Arbeitgebers

Dear former colleague, Thank you very much for your review. We are very surprised about your negative rating. We would have been very happy if you had already spoken to us during your employment period. eGENTIC has three managing directors and all three live the open door policy. Thank you for your suggestions for improvement, some of them we will consider. We don't want to be like google. We want to be a good employer that has motivated employees and encourages them. We are constantly working on that.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

It was an atmosphere driven by fear. Most people are afraid of being fired, and this is obviously reflected on the overall atmosphere of the place. A lot of micromanagement going on at the place as well, so you always feel like someone is looking over your shoulders, even if you are reaching all the goals.

Vorgesetztenverhalten

I think this is the core of the issue. For the top management; get a general feeling about what is happening in the company. Too much employee management happens on the country-manager level, and far too many of those are ill-equipped or downright incapable of handling this, as they are not leaders; they are glorified salespeople.

Kollegenzusammenhalt

Only upside to eGENTIC is the good colleagues, however since they turnover on people is so high (20 in the last 6 months), do not expect for them to stick around long.

Interessante Aufgaben

For me it was sales. The trouble is, the company will claim you are welcome to challenge conventions etc etc. You are most certainly not welcome to do so. eGENTIC wants pecking-bird type of people, who don't spent time trying to improve or innovate. The adage "this worked in the past, so it will work now" is the mantra, even if they'll try their best to convince you otherwise.

Kommunikation

The issue is not really communication; we are being told a lot of things. Most of it just rarely have any relation to reality. Best example: last year eGENTIC hired a consultant to help improve eGENTIC as a company. First team session after he had made his evalution had one of the managers say: you told him "x" and "y", but we don't really believe that is true". Alrighty then...

Gleichberechtigung

I don't think there are any issues per say here in terms of gender equality outside of a few not so fortunate stories about upper management, christmas parties and inappropriate behaviour.

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

In general, it is a young team with a few senior people. This is not an issues at all though.

Karriere / Weiterbildung

If you are in sales, the only step up is to be a country manager. I suppose this is a step up career wise, but it ends there.

Gehalt / Sozialleistungen

There is a bonus in terms of sales, however!!! this is purely to lure you in. Most people do not receive any bonus worth mentioning because of how the running cost of different markets is calculated. We get a phone which we are encouraged to not use privately at all, and thats about it.

Country Managers do get more such as company Car and obviously much much better pay.

Arbeitsbedingungen

Their computers and software are really old, however most of it is currently being upgraded. You get a company phone, and most of it works as intended; just a tad slow. Nothing much to report here.

Umwelt- / Sozialbewusstsein

eGENTIC does donate to childrens cancer once a year, which is very noble of them (no idea how much though; funnily enough the employees are not trusted with this info). However, outside of that eGENTIC is hardly pushing the outer boundaries of what is social awareness..

Work-Life-Balance

You do you hours and thats it. You are not really expected to work from home or anything. Conversely, home office is a city in China, and if you come late for whatever reason it will certainly be noticed.

Image

I mean... At this point, what image? To be brutally honest, if you ask around in the lead gen world, eGENTIC is very quickly getting a very very bad reputation. One thing is that they openly cheat on a lot of their competitions; thats fine and all. But the news is also spreading about how they treat their employees. For instance, a huge article was made about eGENTIC not long ago in a premiere norwegian newspaper. And this happens regularly.

Verbesserungsvorschläge

  • Your employees are your only valuable resource. Start treating them as such. We are always being told that people leaving is part of the game, but not in this manner. You are letting amazing talent go because you have no strategy in place to keep them. Fear tactics, manipulation and the like is not the foundation on which you build a company for the future. For the top management; get a general feeling about what is happening in the company. Too much employee management happens on the country-manager level, and far too many of those are ill-equipped or downright incapable of handling this, as they are not leaders; they are glorified salespeople.

Pro

To be perfectly honest, not a lot of positives to say about the company. My colleagues were, for the most part, extremely nice, and there was a real sense of comradery amongst the sales team. Sadly, this was founded on a very real fear of management, job security, and absurd lies and manipulation.
The Salary was, when I started, just above average for the market, however lately this has dropped significantly for new hires.
The location in Sulzbach is beautiful, and the offices are nice.

Contra

Where to begin. I think the best way to describe the company is that over the course of the last year, over 30 people left the company or was fired (roughly 20 within the 6 months); in an office with around 60 people. That’s 1/3 of everyone, who were scared away or thrown out. Most of the none-management people there are constantly afraid of getting fired, and it shows every single day.
There is an absurd amount of control and micro-management. Everything you do is documented and will be spun against you if they so wish. To the point where one of my colleagues were being monitored for how many times, he had to visit the bathroom; a colleague who superseded his sales targets with 10%. They will tell you that eGENTIC does not believe in micromanagement, but nothing could be further from the truth! To the point where several people have had to have extended sick-leaves due to mental distress over working there.
The overall strategy is to hark on weakness, rather than promote success. If you are looking for a place, in which you can expect personal growth, positive reinforcement, and proper top-down management, this is your chance to run away screaming. However, if you feel comfortabl
