Amazing Place to work at
Finance Intern (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MDJuly 23, 2018
Working at GEA was a remarkable opportunity and an awesome experience. It has a culture of solidarity in which you never feel alone. If you face any difficulty, all you need to do is ask for help, and you'll have an understanding team available to assist you on whatever your task is. You learn from them and they learn from you, just as every workplace should be.

Fijne werkomgeving. Altijd gewerkt met veel werkdruk.
Crediteurenadministratie (Former Employee) –  Den BoschJanuary 17, 2018
Ik heb gewerkt op een grote afdeling. Dit is erg fijn, omdat je alle kanten van de administratie ziet.
Dagelijkse werkzaamheden bestond voornamelijk uit het invoeren van de inkoopfacturen. Daarnaast zorgde ik voor het boeken op de juiste grootboekrekeningen. Ik had daarvoor altijd een korte lijn met de financiele administratie.
Banken boeken, betalingen doen en leveranciers te woord staan zijn een kleine greep uit de vele nevenactiviteiten.
Pros
Fijne collega's
Cons
Altijd teveel werk

Viele spannende Projekte und guter Zusammenhalt
Manager /Experte (Current Employee) –  DüsseldorfDecember 15, 2017
Alles in allem ein guter Arbeitgeber, der sich um seine Mitarbeiter bemüht. Es wird viel Verantwortung übertragen, aber dem Mitarbeiter auch viel zugetraut. Trotzdem hat man den Rückhalt und die Unterstützung seines Vorgesetzten. Das Betriebsklima ist in der Verwaltung sehr familiär, das persönliche/berufliche Netzwerk schnell erkennbar und gut. Zeitliche und örtliche Flexibilität zur Einteilung der Arbeit ist stark von den Aufgaben und vom Vorgesetzten abhängig. Trotzdem wird fair mit den Mitarbeitern umgegangen.
Pros
Standort, Benefits, Klima
Cons
Work-Life-Balance kann noch gefördert werden

Manager (Former Employee) –  APACMay 31, 2017
It was a decent company until management changes in 2015. Technically the company is very good globally delivering Dairy, Food, Beverage, Mining and O&G project systems and packages but lacks direction.

A chellenging experience in evaluation and assessment of new business opportunities and setting up new ventures
C.E.O. (Former Employee) –  Doha, QatarOctober 8, 2015
The most important aspect of my position was to lead the individuals/employees coming from different religions, cultures and historical backgrounds. I have gained experience of evaluating new business ventures, presenting financial goals before management, establishing adequate and effective internal controls and achieving optimum utilisation of resources. The management and staff extended full co-operative in implementation of policies and procedures evolved for quality systems. The hardest part of assignment was monitoring customer complaints since the procurement was mainly dependent on imports. This was closely monitored by preventive and corrective actions.
The most enjoyable and fruitful achievement was creating awareness for good governance and social responsibility.
Pros
Freedom of speech and expressions
Cons
Lack of corporate culture
