The boss is very demanding both with himself and with others. That may sound fair, but it is more natural to put in 200% effort for the main beneficiary than for a salaried employee. Also it often takes an overwhelming amount of evidence to prove your ideas when they differ from the bosses, to a point that many people give up and either shut up or leave. This trickles down through middle managers as well, because they don't want to get into lengthy arguments too often, either. At least you can be certain your boss is not dumb, and if you can stand the pressure, it will make you stronger.
I met some of the smartest engineers here, and made some friends as well.

Ergebnis für spätere Berücksichtigung vorgemerkt
I applied to the Dev Tools position at NumberFour AG back march 2015. I got very quick feedback after submitting my application. A cool and professional HR handled my application and guided me through the process. Had to go through an initial questionnaire and afterwards a coding challenge. I found the process amusing and I had the flexibility to decide when to do it as those were offline.
After that, an initial interview with HR took place and then with the manager of engineering. Both interviews were in a respectful and relaxed tone, where I felt the third-party was trying to be as honest as possible. My major concern where some negative online reviews, but with transparency I was shown that actions where taken in order to address some of major historical issues. It felt like the company had a "restart" and now they are doing things well, demonstrated by the dramatic reduction of employee turnover.
I meet the engineering team at Berlin (cozy, modern, and centric office in Mitte), was interview by some of then and even did a presentation. It was clear the company was trying to make sure they were to hire the right person, by making sure I would get along with my future colleagues. The office breathes innovation and creativity, and there are some very skilled engineers and researchers.
I'm very happy with the whole application process, I felt treated like a human being and that communication was transparent.

Jahr der Bewerbung 2014
Applied for a developer job. Had to code (offline) a lengthy exercise with an outdated framework. Didn't receive a reply until several weeks later. Then went through a shallow and technically rather weak interview that was full of claims and opinions but few references. I had read the bad reviews here before and asked about the working conditions at the company, the reviewers evaded a clear answer. The interviewers declared me technically fit for the job and announced a last, non technical interview. A week later I interviewed with that person, but I got the impression that they didn't like me. The interview was followed by a rejection notification.
