Problematischer Arbeitgeber

Former EmployeeWorked in Marketing/product management at Arena Management GmbH in Köln.

What I like

Es gibt ein Jobticket, allerdings auch nicht kostenfrei.

What I dislike

Gehalt, Umgang mit den Mitarbeitern, Umgang untereinander, fehlende Fairness, kein Vertrauen, starre Arbeitszeiten, Unkollegialität, Inkompetenz und Unzuverlässigkeit der Personalabteilung.
Zu meiner Zeit habe ich mehrere Klagen wegen unzulässiger Kündigungen mitbekommen.

Suggestions for improvement

Es muss fast die gesamte Belegschaft einmal ausgetauscht werden. Furchtbare Leute und Vorgesetzte.
Die Bezahlung ist oft unangemessen.
Ein Betriebsrat wäre hilfreich, leider haben die Mitarbeiter Angst, gefeuert zu werden, wenn sie einen Gründen wollen.

I greatly enjoy working at Baker Tilly. The company has provided a diverse set of experience since...

EmployeeWorked at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP in Chicago, IL at the time of review.

What I like

I was brought on to do perform one function, however this has expanded to a variety of experiences and engagements. I have been part of a team in a variety of different types of engagements which have greatly expanded my set of skills. Time management is a huge focus as you tend to have multiple individuals you are reporting to at any given point in time. It truly allows you to develop a strong sense of time management abilities as you progress.
You also work with some of the brightest individuals in public accounting. There are a breadth of specializations and resources within the firm that are utilizable. This is what truly makes the organization special.

What I dislike

Very few parts of the company would I change. Baker Tilly could provide a heavier emphasis on causes specific individuals care about (i.e education, global warming, etc). How to implement could be challenging, but I think it ultimately could increase retention.
Also, the organization has begun developing a diversity initiative, which is gaining steam. The organization does suffer from a slight lack of diversity, which it is actively engaging in.
Average compensation does seem slightly lower than it's competitors. The organization should brainstorm ideas to at least bring compensation to industry average.

Suggestions for improvement

Similar to the prior question, the organization should increase compensation, create individual specific programs and diversity initiatives. I would also closer monitor the evaluation of employees, although it could create a feeling of micromanagement.
