Fact 4: German SMEs offer enticing career opportunities

In many companies, even the larger ones, the work atmosphere is very informal: the paths to managers are short and the employees are involved in decision-making and assume responsibilities. Very few have the feeling of being just a "small cog in a large wheel". German SMEs have flat hierarchies, a fact which is confirmed by surveys. And directly involving the employees has another positive effect – dedicated employees are able to prove what they’re worth quickly and soon get the chance of taking advantage of continuing education offers, or climbing up a rung on the career ladder.
