Two lay-offs within one year. The Management has no clear plan, mindless decisions and insecurity all over

Gut am Arbeitgeber finde ich

Salary

The team spirit in individual departments. There were very cool personalities in the company who, unfortunately, are gradually leaving or being kicked out.

Schlecht am Arbeitgeber finde ich

Individuals in management make decisions based on subjective opinions.

Unfortunately, much of the company's work is now based on who likes whom. Thus, relevant positions are excluded from important meetings/decisions and not informed. It has become a constant selling of people's roles. If you are lucky and you are seen, you can do the job you are hired for.

It's not much about teamwork anymore. You also notice that the people who have been hired in the last 6-12 months have a different mentality. It's a lot about the own ego.

That a consultant from America came in for 3 months, who has the US glasses on and does not understand what the company was unique for in the beginning. Without further ado, it was decided to reduce the marketing team by almost 50%.

Verbesserungsvorschläge

Put management in place that knows what it's doing and has a plan and objectives set. The strategy should also not be changed every few weeks, because it does not achieve the - often not very realistic - goals. Employees were let go because there is no strategy in place and no departmental goals were set (The company's hierarchy is not working). As a result, lay-offs are happening and people are dismissed who are said not to have achieved the goals.

Learn to trust the employees and refrain from micro-management. Employees are hired and then have to sell their roles and prove why it's a good thing they've been hired.

The company should establish a hierarchy and it should work properly.
The management should learn that in this highly competitive environment it is not enough to copy the competition.

The company should live the set values. There is talk of being courageous and trying things out, but when employees do so, the Management backs down on the basis of subjective decisions.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

Management has no trust in employees, people are hired and kicked out after a very short time because they do not meet expectations.

Vorgesetztenverhalten

The management does not adhere to their set hierarchies, many decisions were made over department heads.

Kommunikation

Communication within the company does not work, everything happens on Slack, there is no filtering of information. Hierarchical coordination does not work. Employees with management responsibility are ignored - when once again headless decisions are made quickly.

RabeaHead of People & Culture, Meister

Thank you for sharing your feedback. Your insights are extremely valuable to us as we continually strive to improve.

We understand that the rightsizing measures we went through were frustrating, and we deeply regret any negative impact it had on you and others involved. Those decisions were driven by strategic and economic factors, and it was a difficult choice that we had to make. We are committed to learning from this experience and making the necessary changes to ensure that our processes align with our values of empathy and transparency.

In addition, we also provided attractive compensation packages, severance benefits, and other resources to assist affected colleagues in their transition. We wanted to ensure that individuals had the best possible support during this challenging period and access to resources to help them move forward in their careers.

Meister is going through a phase of transformation, as we are moving from a hidden champion towards a recognized challenger on the market. Those changes come with challenges, and we can understand if the recent dynamics left the impression that we are uncertain about our own strategy. Our leadership is working hard to navigate through these challenges and give everybody as much clarity as possible. I am sorry that it did not feel like that for you, but please be assured that we take your feedback to heart and do our best to improve.

If you would like to share any specific details about your experience or provide further insights, I encourage you to reach out to me directly at rabea@meisterlabs.com.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback.

Best, Rabea

First they hired a bunch of people even though the losses increased each month and then big layoff ..

Schlecht am Arbeitgeber finde ich

The way they treated people during the layoff. The ones that were affected just received a mail where they were informed that they were fired and some were locked out of their computers even before theyreceived the notification.

Verbesserungsvorschläge

Better think first before you hire dozens of people. There were so many that have just startet 2 or 3 months before they were fired again. Most of them left good jobs and were suddenly unemployed.

RabeaHead of People & Culture, Meister

Thank you for sharing your feedback. Your insights are extremely valuable to us as we continually strive to improve.

Your feedback primarily unfortunately only provides insights on the downsizing last year and not your overall experience working at Meister. First and foremost, the decision to downsize was driven by economic as well as performance factors, and it was a difficult choice that we had to make. We want you to know that we deeply regret any negative impact it had on you and others involved. We are committed to learning from this experience and making the necessary changes to ensure that our processes align with our values of empathy and transparency.

In addition, we also provided attractive compensation packages, severance benefits, and other resources to assist affected colleagues in their transition. We wanted to ensure that individuals had the best possible support during this challenging period and access to resources to help them move forward in their careers. We are committed to learning from this experience and ensuring that our processes align with our values of empathy and transparency. I hope you can already see the improvements we have been working on in the last months, including increased transparency on business performance across the company as well as more extensive company feedback as well as performance management mechanisms.

Regarding your suggestion about hiring, we understand the frustration when employees join an organization and face a downsizing process shortly after. While we make every effort to anticipate business needs and make informed hiring decisions, unforeseen circumstances, and market fluctuations can sometimes necessitate difficult decisions. We deeply regret any inconvenience caused to those affected by these circumstances.

If you would like to share any specific details about your experience or provide further insights, I encourage you to reach out to me directly at rabea@meisterlabs.com.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback.

Modern company with advantages, but also rough corners

Ex-Angestellte/r oder Arbeiter/inHat bei MeisterLabs Software GmbH gearbeitet.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

The company laid-off a good portion of its staff in mid 2022, which also happened to other tech companies like Bitpanda, Go Student etc. I guess this happens when there is an imbalance between investor expectations, (unrealistic) growth plans, weak leadership etc. - I was not part of the leadership, but in all of those cases you hear about the very same issues. That's important because all this causes pressure amongst the crew and people feel less safe, at least the ones that I have talked to. Regardless of this weight and new reality at Meister, the company tries its best to create a good workplace. There are super flexible working times, you can blance full (!) days when you have 8+ overhours, you get good equipment and also people are very nice.

Image

Not very clear to me. Vision and reality is not the same

Work-Life-Balance

Really depends! For most people it's good. There are flexible working times and home office is not an issue, also full remote is possible. You can balance full days when you have 8+ overhours. Technically there are no overhours actually, but "more hours". The difference is that real over hours are balanced by 1:1,5 and more hours by 1:1 (only). But still I loved the system, since you can take off a day from time to time. Still there are some employees who have so many tasks that they have dozens of over hours and no time to take off, but I'd say that's just the exception to the rule

Karriere/Weiterbildung

Very professional. They are clear career paths - even for people who do not want to lead other people, there are very nice opportunities. They put some thought into this. You can also do a lot of trainings and they pay for german classes and even personal coachings. Leaders get regular trainings as well. Theoretically you can spend 10% of your work time with trainings, BUT I haven't seen anyone who ever had the time to actually do that

Gehalt/Sozialleistungen

Meister improved the salaries a bit this year, especially after the lay-offs. But you have to be clear that other companies pay way better mostly. A friend of mine left the company this year and gets more as an intermediate than many of the seniors at Meister. I've heard from a few seniors, that they had counter offers with 15-20k more a year when they joined Meister. So you see, money is not everything :)
Still I have to mention that Meister pays for your public transport in Vienna or they pay the equivalent amount to the austrian railway card.

Kollegenzusammenhalt

Quite good, as in most companies

Vorgesetztenverhalten

Also depends. Everyone is super nice, but I had a bad experience with a very unexperienced leader in the specific field. That was hard, but the time before that was nice and I think overall it's ok in all other departments. I just heard from a friend in another dev team that his lead is super nice, but still too "soft" and finds it hard to make fast and clear decisions

Kommunikation

Meister works a lot on communication and expects clear and structured communication from you. They have a pretty well developed 360 degree feedback and (re-) evaluation system, supported by formalized checklists that make decisions more objective ideally. On the company side we missed clear communication sometimes. Lots of people missed a clear company strategy by the management for instance. Also just recently (after more than 15 years) Meister forced ways of brutally honest feedback e.g. to the management, which unveiled issues that the majority was partly not aware of. I've seen much younger companies who took whole campany-wide workshops with external experts, only to deal with the problem of being hesitant to speak openly about anything. Don't get me wrong, Meister is open for your opinion, but as a company you have to be active in requesting honest opinions and not passive. This is about to change right now I think

Gut am Arbeitgeber finde ich

Menschen werden ernst genommen, Arbeit ist spannend und Produkte sind top. Ich bin motiviert, weil alles passt und Kolleg:Innen nett sind.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

Wirklich ausgezeichnet. Für die Entwickler:Innen ist es ruhig im Büro,

Work-Life-Balance

Hier wird man als Mensch, mit seinen Bedürfnissen ernst genommen. 30h Woche zB ist kein Problem. Es gibt Verträge für "fast immer" Büroarbeit, flexibel (zB häufig oder meistens Home Office) oder komplett remote - man kann es sich aussuchen!

Karriere/Weiterbildung

Bezahlte Weiterbildungen und es werden einem hin und wieder Weiterbildungen angeboten, die man in Anspruch nehmen kann. Die Qualität war immer sehr gut. Department wechseln, Rolle ändern ist auch möglich.

Umwelt-/Sozialbewusstsein

Es wird viel zum Thema Corporate Social Responsibility unternommen. Man kann sich einbringen oder es ignorieren, wenn es einen nicht interessiert.

Vorgesetztenverhalten

Auf Augenhöhe, einfühlsam, hilfsbereit. Auch die beiden Gründer bodenständig und sympathisch.

Arbeitsbedingungen

Top Büro in guter Lage, gute Bildschirme, moderne Laptops (Mac, Windows, Linux, was man will), Budget für gutes Zubehör, elektrisch höhenverstellbare Tische, Pflanzen. Schöne Meetingräume. Man sitzt mit mehreren Kolleg:Innen im jeweiligen Raum, aber es ist meistens sehr ruhig, man kann sich konzentrieren.

Kommunikation

Ausgezeichnet. Man kann einfach nach Firmenevents bei einem Bier/Wein/Saft zusammensitzen. Es gibt es auch Coaching-Angebote und zB freiwillige Workshops zu Non Violent Communication.

Great team, good products, flexibility and a beautiful office.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

The start-up vibe of the early days is still present. Personally, I choose this over some stuff bureaucratic structures any day of the year.

Work-Life-Balance

9 out of 10 companies claim to offer great flexibility and in Meister's case it is truly followed up.

Gehalt/Sozialleistungen

Can't complain. Fair wages and benefits.

Kollegenzusammenhalt

Honestly the greatest thing of all. Never seen such a motivated, passionate and easy-going team. Everyone is super fired up about bringing the company to the next level, making work simply fun.

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

Neither.

You get the equipment of your choice and almost any wishes about further devices are granted.

Gut am Arbeitgeber finde ich

Lack of micro management. Freedom and responsibility in a lot of areas. Yearly retreats

Schlecht am Arbeitgeber finde ich

Communication of company plans.

Verbesserungsvorschläge

Make stock options available to employees. Create a clear policy on remote work. More flexible core hours as policy (sometimes practised, but not on paper which is confusing). Better rewards for overtime.

Karriere/Weiterbildung

There are opportunities to attend conferences and work on new tech in "innovation week" (start of every quarter)

Gehalt/Sozialleistungen

No stock options which is disappointing considering the company is happy to take on investment from external sources. Wages could also be better

Arbeitsbedingungen

You can choose you own equipment in most cases, flexi desks don't have standard monitor / desks which can be annoying

Kommunikation

Important company decisions (like whether to take on investment or whether to move to a flexi desk system) are only communicated when a decision is made.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

The working atmosphere of Meister is really nice. The Vienna offices are gorgeous and comfortable with coffee, snacks, and other incentives. I also very much like that we are flexible with working from home.

Image

I think most employees are happy with their jobs and happy with Meister overall.

Work-Life-Balance

The work/life balance at Meister is a huge benefit for me. It’s one of my favorite things about the company. Everyone from the Founders to the Junior Employees are encouraged to take leave, stay at 38.5 hours a week, and take time when needed to take care of oneself. This makes for a really positive experience where the “hustle and grind” of tech isn’t so present.

Karriere/Weiterbildung

While we have “development” time, I haven’t personally taken any career advancement time at Meister. Educational classes or professional development is available, in theory, but it doesn’t seem to be a major objective.

Gehalt/Sozialleistungen

While I think the salaries are a bit lower than market value, I think Meister makes up for it to some degree with their level of work flexibility.

Umwelt-/Sozialbewusstsein

I think many of the employees are environmentally and socially conscious, but I haven’t seen any concerted effort specifically from the top-down. I think that Meister leadership could do a better job of enabling and encouraging more social awareness, supporting diverse causes, creating a space for us as a company to be more environmentally conscious and support this financially or with employee volunteer days or something like this.

Kollegenzusammenhalt

The HR team at Meister does a nice job of vetting potential candidates for culture fit and cohesion among other staff. Because of this, we have a great blend of people who bring value to the team and also are team players. The existing staff is mostly open and transparent with work and collaborating together.

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

I would say this is an area of growth for Meister. As a SaaS company, we tend to hire more juniors for positions and this excludes older colleagues in senior roles. I would like to see Meister actively recruit older colleagues.

Vorgesetztenverhalten

The leadership team and managers at Meister are constantly improving. With a relatively flat hierarchy, we are still working and collaborating with each other often at all levels of the company and “Managers” don’t just manage, they do.

Arbeitsbedingungen

The working environment is really nice at Meister. We have gorgeous offices, standing desks, and it’s always clean and tidy. We have easy access to a garden to eat lunch, work outside, or take a break which really adds value to the day!

Kommunikation

The communication at Meister is often good. We have weekly written updates from each department, monthly all-hands meetings where employees are encouraged to ask questions, give feedback and engage with other employees, and annual 360 performance reviews. We are constantly communicating and striving to improve.

Gleichberechtigung

The balance of male/female colleagues seems like a good blend at Meister. While we don’t have parity, I think we do a good job of trying to recruit and hire talented people from all backgrounds.

Interessante Aufgaben

The projects and tasks at Meister are interesting and challenging. Being in a growing Tech company, we always have work to do and great new projects to work on.
