The management sucks ... worst I e ever dealt with”
Former Employee - Regional Sales Manager says"Poor management, poor outlook, poor communication"
Current Employee - Sales says"We are sorry to hear that you are not fully satisfied with REHAU as an employer at the moment. At REHAU, it is important to us that our employees feel supported and treated fairly. We strive to provide a nurturing work environment with a competitive compensation and benefits package that includes flexible work life balance opportunities, career path mentoring, and management training programs. We recognize how important these programs are to our employees for growing their careers at REHAU and we are supporting this growth where possible. However, due to the size of our organization we do have fewer management layers to move into. On the flip side, our structure allows us to provide more opportunities to get exposure to a very broad range of products, projects and areas (depending on your specific job). This broad exposure is seen as a clear advantage by many colleagues compared to other companies. In REHAU, we provide also a very direct access to top management. This enables our employees to make direct suggestions for improvement and discuss them with the decision makers. So we would like to encourage you to bring forward your suggestions and ideas for taking on more responsibilities or broaden your area for a positive impact on our business and your career. We are looking forward to receiving your ideas!"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Exploitative work environment; poorly-defined, ever-increasing workload and pathetic wages coupled with non-existent employee welfare. Selfish, self-serving management who display a marked unwillingness to listen to feedback, are slow to adapt to changing realities and prefer to bury their collective heads in the sand, contributing to shrinking sales. The company does not believe in engaging in fair hiring practices; fraught with nepotism and backdoor entry hires. Despite a pool of qualified locals, management fills top positions with Caucasians, most who do not possess specialised skill sets. Management professes to ‘embrace diversity’ and be ‘respectful of different cultures’ but what transpired during my time with Rehau was a consistent, recurring pattern of racial discrimination and normalised xenophobia. I’ve had the unfortunate experience of working with foreign hires (of various ethnicities) who thought it acceptable to behave pompously and treat the locals with barely veiled contempt. I did not speak up then but I will speak out now because their behaviour was so odious it was beyond the pale. Rehau does not believe in fulfilling its corporate social responsibilities towards the local community."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Mismanagement and corruption amongst senior management."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"- Unsustainable business in the long-run with low potential for growth - Internal company processes are not made transparent, with lack of documentation and poor handing over of tasks and responsibilities, leading to a lot of inefficiencies and confusion - Poor work culture with tendency towards passive aggressive behaviour, indirect communication which led to poorly planned work and unresolved expectations - some colleagues were very uncooperative and not supportive, affecting day-to-day performance - poor management & leadership abilities, with tendency towards throwing temper tantrums in a bid to get things done or message across"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"They don't care about their employees at all! After 10 years at this place myself and most of everyone I worked with at the time found yourself replaced by temps for one reason or another. They work you to death and let us go without thinking twice about it. I do not recommend this place to anyone that is looking for long term work or friendly work environment!"
Former Employee - Marketing says"pathetic management, never join them"
Former Employee - Technical Manager says"Everything else. Arrogant and elitist attitudes from everyone above you on the "organigram". The reviews above that say it's a great place, are clearly written by one of their many HR drones who spend most of their day making sure their ties are not wrinkled and kissing some higher ups rear. The guy that said they sweep problems under the rug is spot on. If you dare attend one of their "consultation days" be prepared to get laid off soon after."

Maintenance Tech (Former Employee) says"Be aware. Rehau HR and upper management is a joke. Upper management and HR will believe anything your flunky supervisor may say about you rather true or not. They may call you in to HR any time without warning and your gone. They call it a lay off but that is not what it is at all. Someone has told someone who tells someone something about you or makes any kind of a slanderous untrue story about you and boom your gone. No conversation, no warnings, no write ups nothing. HR is the biggest joke of all. They do not support the employees unless your a manager. if your not a manager you are a nobody to HR. Most of the supervisors will stab you in the back to promote themselves in a heart beat."
