Employees at Zapp

Working in medium-sized businesses

  • Flat hierarchies: career starters can quickly take on responsibility and advance in the company.
  • Short ways: Fewer instances have to be integrated and thus fewer people have to be convinced. This makes decisions faster.
  • Personal atmosphere: The working atmosphere is often better due to the personal relationship with the superiors. In addition, there are further opportunities to advance in the company.
  • Lateral entry possible: Employees are needed who lend a hand and take on tasks that are not directly related to their job, so it is easier for lateral entrants.
  • Regional ties: Medium-sized companies receive a regional reputation within the social environment in the region where their headquarters are located.
  • Hidden champion: Medium-sized companies can be world market leaders for a certain niche product within their own industries and achieve a high level of awareness.
