Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Too managers and directors Agendas often at odds with each other Communication is poor between areas Europe Hdqtrs does not seem to support US plant Process control is weak"

Current Employee - White Collar says

"Local senior management has little understanding of the lighting industry and lies more frequently than I could believe. The"good-old-boys" club is strong here. I had vendors I had used for decades tell me that they would not give kickbacks to get projects when I told them I work for Zumtobel. The systems put l and processes are so convoluted they can only exist to hide embezzlement."

Current Employee - Manager says

"Chaotic management with lack of competence and strategic thinking. Political environment. Management Changes each 6-12 months. People are promoted based on working years or friendships in the company and not on skills. Missing elementary processes and disaster IT environment. Projects are finalized at all, deadlines is unknown word HR is visible on the day you sign and resign only. No any competence or support. You are just A number. Employees are lead by criticism and not by motivation."
