Support from management

Like any company there are good and bad leaders but overall I have seen good leaders

Teamwork

They promote teamwork in the work place.

Freedom to work independently

I do see people that don't perform get pushed to different job instead of address the issues.

Internal Communication

regular meeting and web cast but not always promoted very well.

Gender Equality

Swiss company and

Attitude towards older colleagues

There is a respect for older workers here

Career Development

No one will push you to climb here but if you show initiative people will help you. unfortunately there seems to be a glass ceiling for non-Swiss employees

Office / Work Environment

average - play is safe rather than going for cutting edge

Environmental Friendliness

seem open to community support projects

Work-Life Balance

average - expect you to be here when needed and do a decent job of compensating you but there is no official company policy.

Job Security

As long as people keep eating and drinking they will be in business. very diversified customer base

Workplace Safety

Almost to a fault

Challenging Work

Slow and steady wins the race here - typical Swiss company that is very cautious of change

Inclusive / Diverse

International company with many different back grounds.

What I like about the company

very good work environment and friendly work place.

What I dislike about the company

It seems like it is very hard and slow to make change.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There is a very small number of problem employees and their behavior is not addressed and ignored. Remove these few problem people and allow the rest of the good people to continue the good work they are doing and not be polluted by the bad attitudes and poor work of a small few.

What I like about the company

I enjoy the work I do and feel I am valued in my current role. I am fairly compensated for my work and have very flexible work conditions which allow me to have good work/life balance.

What I dislike about the company

There is poor career development which forces good employees to leave the company in order to advance their careers. The company spends more money on recruiting rather than retention. Politics of senior management are a barrier between the good vision of leadership and the hard work & collaboration of the individual contributors.
