Google Maps Reviews do not appear publically - why?

My colleague and me recently rated our VOK DAMS offices in Germany and Europe via Google reviews. However, logged in in my profile I can only see one review for all our offices - even though I saw his rating myself when he entered the review.

For example for our VOK DAMS Munich office here:,11.565682,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0... 

Here, you should see at least 3 reviews, but in my profile, I can see only my rating.. Is it because of privacy settings?

Thank you for your help!

I see five reviews visible to the public for the location in Munich (including yours):

But please let me warn your colleagues and you:

I read your poost as "we recently rated our VOK DAMS offices in Germany and Europe"


This means you rated your own business and this way you violated their Review and photo policies  (its regarding "conflict of interests").

I highly recommend you and your colleagues shoul delete the reviews again.

I will inform Google about this violation.
