Management decisions were often intransparent, this lead to confusion, misunderstandings and a strange atmosphere
Decisions were often made intransparently and ad hoc. Communication was often missing.
- The company has gone through some rough times in the last couple of months. Around 20 % of the employees had to leave the company and were fired in quite a haste. That the company was struggling was not communicated beforehand, so nobody was prepared for the round of layoffs. Unfortunately the management has not learned about the mistakes. Communication is still often unclear and HR-decisions are often made in non transparent ways. Your work highly depends on your direct manager as decisions of daily tasks are not made in a standardized way in the different departments and teams. To me it often seemed as you’d have to have luck and pick a good day: does the thumb go up or down? The people in managing positions are mostly untrained people, who do they job out of the blue, a constant training did not seem to be demanded. It is a good company if you want to get a first glimpse in the e-commerce-sector, but if you actually want to develop your skills (even though it is stressed by the MDs, for me in “real life” it did not seem to be appreciated if you were ambitious, as said above, maybe I had bad luck with my direct managers), you will quickly have to look for another company.
