Does Messe Frankfurt offer vision insurance?

Pros

Nice office space Free coffee and tea Decent PTO

Cons

-Highly toxic environment, you will need to be a strong-minded person and desperate for a buck to work here. Some managers openly shout at their members, causing most to cry and there’s no use to report them to HR or leadership. When anyone reports anything negative, no action is taken but all parties are asked to shake hands and work together. And oftentimes the person who complains somehow has no more work for them shortly after and they are let go. -Favoritism at its best, but you will prosper if you’re the “right” ethnic group. The new CEO got rid of 25% of the African American employees, mostly who were women in management positions, turned around and promoted the Caucasian employees. You don’t have to have 20/20 vision to see his bias. When he became CEO, there were several black women in management positions, and slowly they were either indirectly forced out or he simply terminated them (at-will State). Each one of them would attest that he never acknowledged their presence, walk past, wouldn’t say hello in the hallways the only time he’d speak if he needed something urgent to get done. Bark orders and leave. On the other hand he would speak to the “others”, sit in their office, talk shop and crack jokes etc. it was so blatant! -no room for growth, stopped employee appreciation incentives, training programs and seminars. He said they were a waste of money. The job expectation was to come in, keep your head down and sell shows, go home. Repeat.

Advice to Management

It’s the lowly paid coordinators who make the money and not the couple of back-stabbing show directors but you refuse to see that. It has been reported and documented for years but since the particular shows bring the most revenue, no action is taken to address the bullying. Focusing on revenue rather than your staff is counterproductive. Great, strong company, poor leadership.
