Really good working environment but salaries are way to low and not competitive at all

Gut am Arbeitgeber finde ich

The collegues are really amazing and the environment is really good. Management is really friendly and nice and really good work life balance.

Schlecht am Arbeitgeber finde ich

Salary is way too low and not competitive at all. Employees have to ask to get promoted which shouldn't be how it is. There is no long term career planning and employees feel undervalued with the salary they receive.

Verbesserungsvorschläge

Pay higher salaries and don't make people ask to get promotions. People should not have to ask to get promoted.

Gina LarsenHR Generalist

Hi there,

Thank you very much for the review - we really value your honesty!

We’re happy you appreciate all the efforts we take to support and communicate with all of our colleagues in these tough corona times.

As you pointed out correctly, we’re right now in a transition phase from being purely a startup into becoming a company that incorporates the best from both the startup as well as corporate world. We’re doing our best in supporting all of our colleagues - no matter whether they are managing a team or not - in improving their individual skill sets and thus making GSG an even better place to work.

In case you have difficulties in collaboration with your (or any other) manager please contact the People & Culture team or your buddy. Additionally, you always have the possibility to provide direct SBI feedback to the respective person. In case you need support in this, please contact the People and Culture team, as well. We want to continuously get better and really value your insights!

Best,
Gina

Wofür möchtest du deinen Arbeitgeber im Umgang mit der Corona-Situation loben?

Global Savings Group really does everything to protect us. The set everything to avoid Kurzarbeit - not speaking of letting people go. Managemant made clear that this is not an option at all.
All in all I feel very safe and protected.

Was macht dein Arbeitgeber im Umgang mit der Corona-Situation nicht gut?

Nothing.

Wie kann dich dein Arbeitgeber im Umgang mit der Corona-Situation noch besser unterstützen?

There's nothing they could do better.

Work-Life-Balance

Although it's very hard to have a real work-life-balance while working from home we've got heaps of information on how to deal with it and effectively separate work from private life.

Gehalt/Sozialleistungen

No repercussions so far. Our management did everything to avoid Kurzarbeit including reducing their own salaries.

Arbeitsbedingungen

Working conditions obviously vary a lot - depending on the different flats people live in. But we're supported a lot and we also had the opportunity to have work chairs from the office delivered home if needed.

Wofür möchtest du deinen Arbeitgeber im Umgang mit der Corona-Situation loben?

Verständnis und Großzügigkeit im Umgang mit dem Problem, dass Schulen und Kitas geschlossen sind. Andere Arbeitgeber schicken die AN in unbezahlten Urlaub oder man muss seinen Jahresurlaub jetzt schon nehmen. Es wird viel Rücksicht auf die Mitarbeiterbedürfnisse genommen. Danke ! Offene Kommunikation und Transparenz über die Situation hilft dem Mitarbeiter die Situation zu verstehen. Technischer Umstieg auf Home Office für alle hat reibungslos funktioniert! Vielen Dank besonders an unsere IT!

Wo siehst du Chancen für deinen Arbeitgeber mit der Corona-Situation besser umzugehen?

macht weiter so!

fühle mich bestens unterstützt.

Gut am Arbeitgeber finde ich

- The most notable benefit and perhaps redeeming quality of this company is its employees and culture. The majority are young, international, driven, skilled and welcoming. Ideal if you are starting a career or want to make friends in a new city.

- Depending on your team, you can gain a lot of insight into various topics and learn from knowledgeable colleagues and managers.

- Mostly flat hierarchies in daily business if everything is going well.

- A lot of effort is put into bringing the company across as a cool and fun place to work. Beer o'clock, team events, office space, casual clothes, etc.

Schlecht am Arbeitgeber finde ich

- Some employees are treated as a replaceable resource.
- Regular unpaid overtime and the option to make up hours is only given after lengthy discussions.
- Often negative feedback or suggestions for improvement are ignored and instead topics are tackled that aren't as pressing. E.g. salaries have been an issue for years, while great team spirit has been praised even in reviews on platforms such as this. Instead of effectively tackling the salary problem, HR worked on defining company culture.
- Some managers/team leads are inexperienced, preoccupied or overworked, resulting in bad management and a general lack of leadership in some teams.
- HR is distrusted by many employees, due to their lack of sincerity, direction and honesty.
- Using young employees' inexperience against them and/or utilizing basic bullying tactics, especially when it comes to promotions and overtime.
- Encouraging employees to submit reviews on platforms such as this for a chance to win a team event. Seems like an attempt to get good reviews.

Verbesserungsvorschläge

Ensure the best qualities of GSG are present and felt in every team. Experiences differ greatly between teams and it would be beneficial to find ways in which to promote a good baseline across ALL teams.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

The atmosphere among employees is always welcoming and open.

Image

Employees always speak well of their colleagues and work, but comments about management can be negative.

Work-Life-Balance

Home office days and flexible hours are great, but the need for overtime can sometimes be too high and there is often no option provided to make up those hours.

Karriere/Weiterbildung

Ability to learn a lot from colleagues in different teams and internal basic trainings, but external courses or other benefits are rarely offered.

Gehalt/Sozialleistungen

Salary generally isn't very competitive, especially in relation to workload and responsibility, but there is potential to quickly advance within the company.

Vorgesetztenverhalten

Some managers and team leads don't handle problems well. They sometimes ignore employees, bully or make excuses in difficult situations. Top management handled some situations very poorly in the past months, by taking action before fully understanding the problem.

Kommunikation

Good at company level, but communication between managers and teams can be slow, lacking or non-existent.

Gleichberechtigung

Very diverse, however some inequalities are present below the surface. E.g. some juniors have a 1 month notice period, others get 3 months. Foreign employees sometimes get short notice periods, presumably to put them under pressure, since their visa is linked to the contract.

Hi there,

Thank you very much for review - we really value your honesty!

We’re happy you value the freedom and parts of our company culture. Nevertheless, we would like to respond to some of the points you address:

We have more than 25 nationalities working in our Munich office who comprise a significant part of our colleagues. Additionally, we view GSG as a truly multicultural place to work and we have a very strict approach to treat all of our colleagues the same way. As you also mentioned contracts: we have a standard contract for every country that is according to the respective laws and regulations and treats every new hire completely equal both in terms of conditions as well as salaries (we worked on those as hard as on the definition of our company culture). In case you feel treated unfairly or know of someone who is treated as such please let us know! You can contact your buddy, the People & Culture team or - as this topic is very dear to us - Gerhard, our CEO. We’re more than happy to talk to you.

As you know, we’re right now in a transition phase from being purely a startup into becoming a company that incorporates the best from both the startup as well as corporate world. We’re doing our best in supporting all of our colleagues in improving their individual skill sets and thus making GSG an even better place to work. Following up on the surveys we sent out at the end of last and beginning of this year the resulting focus groups, where we are deeper discussing the feedback we received from all of our colleagues, have already been held in their first round. But our invitation still stands: if you want to contribute you are invited to approach us and share your thoughts. There are multiple topics we want to improve together with you and we are looking forward to openly sharing and discussing whatever topics come up.

And regarding your last point - that we use kununu’s offer to elicit mainly positive reviews: every review we get - be it positive or negative helps us to improve as a whole. Honestly, we wouldn’t have promoted it if we were afraid of constructive feedback but we would appreciate it even more if it was given directly to us. So please feel free to contact the People & Culture team, your buddy or our CEO to discuss any of this.

Cheers,
Gina

GSG is definitely the right company for start of your career.

I really like that GSG is really improving in all their process and procedures and aiming to become a truly global company. They put a lot of effort into training and coaching all employees as well as supporting us as good as possible.

Verbesserungsvorschläge

There's not a lot to improve, but in general we should take environmental and CSR issues into more focus.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

A very open and welcoming atmosphere witha lot of cool colleagues.

Karriere/Weiterbildung

There's still some space for improvment, but you can grow both personally as well as professionally.

Gehalt/Sozialleistungen

Salary and benefits are as can be expected. I would so upper medium.

Umwelt-/Sozialbewusstsein

Could be better, to be honest.

Kollegenzusammenhalt

Just great. You can have a lot of fun while you are always able to receive and give constructive feedback as well.

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

Vorgesetztenverhalten

In general very good, sometimes you still feel to "maturity" of the organization. But that has been improving lately, too.

Arbeitsbedingungen

In Munich the office is great, we have everything we need and can possible want.

Kommunikation

For a company that size communication is ok, but could be faster sometimes. It really depends on the respective manager how fast important information is communicated.

Gleichberechtigung

I have never worked in a company that has been as diverse as Global Savings Group. As far as I can tell everyone is treated the same.
