Advantages of being "Kader"

Is there any advantage of being employed as a "Kader", as opposed to "Non Kader", from contract/insurance/.. point of views?

Re: Advantages of being "Kader"

Usual advantages of being a Kader (in Finance industry) from my personal exxperience:

Advantages:
  • Higher salary
  • Higher share of bonus pot
  • Better pension scheme conditions
  • More vacation days
  • Company credit card
  • Daily expense of around Fr 50 without expense forms (usually when billed to company credit card)
  • Don't need to clock in / out
Disadvantages:
  • More responsibilities
  • No overtime, you finish work when you finish
  • Erm...

Re: Advantages of being "Kader"

Where I work there are also various perks and things, some of which are probably historic and don't make much sense today. But one thing that can be both positive and negative (depending on your point of view and the circumstances) is that the termination notice period is longer. Another nice thing is that I can "buy" up to 10 extra vacation days a year. If I want to have a medical examination, I won't get it for free but the company will foor some percentage of the bill. Maybe some more things a bit like that that i can't remember now but that are nice to have.

Re: Advantages of being "Kader"

My employer seems to put on a few "Kaderausflug" trips every year. They all go off on a jolly somewhere or other, paid for by the company.

Correct, but a kader can b*gger off early without clocking out (as a lot of my colleagues do - not me!)

Re: Advantages of being "Kader"

In finance/insurance you are "Kader" if you have one of the follwing titles:
Vice President, Director, Executive Director, Managing Director

(Associate, Assistant Vice President, Assistant Manager, Associate Director are not real "Kader").

The following link gives you some guidelines about the salary/bonus you can expect:

It means no paid overtime you finish work when you have finished it and then only once everybody else who is likely to call you about their work has finally gone to bed. Across all time zones. .

Yes. It has the same number of syllables as "tosser".
