Advice to Management

My advice to management is to be aware of ground realities. They are either not aware of what happens at lower levels, or are accomplice to it. The ever growing trend of firing people, or actually forcing them to resign since the company has no solid reason to fire them, and wants to avoid a law suit has negatively impacted the company and people's willingness to continue for the long-term. Top management is living in its own bubble, you find many examples of people with no relevant experience heading departments just because it's easier to move people within the company based on favouritism. The way Emma is working internally, it will remain only as a company where people come for short term, get some experience and then move on. There is a reason that the medium time spent at Emma is 6 months. This statistic alone should be cause for concern, but since the company successfully capitalises on the fact that not many people speak German, most being non-Europeans, they are employed at ridiculous salaries. Top management has been talking about "Emma DNA", sorry to break it to you but there is no Emma DNA, unless it means stagnation of your employees in terms of growth both mentally and financially. The company has invested millions towards its outlook, maybe do the same internally. There is no doubt Emma will be the leading sleep-tech company in the near future, but being a responsible employer is a different story. Good luck!

Does Emma offer bonus pay?

Advice to Management

Keep the agile mentality but stop treating the company as a start up. It's 400+ employees with annual €300m revenue.

No bonus or any financial benefits other than the 12
