The six-month contract with the WDM as a project manager for one of their in-house platforms was an overall enjoyable experience and I would happily recommend the firm to a friend, especially a younger person who needs to get work experience in a friendly and nurturing environment. The team is young and multinational (office languages are German/English but in total more than a dozen languages are spoken) and they seem to mix socially , with people cooking lunch together, sometimes office dinners and lunches in house, birthdays celebrated -- the big bar and wine cellar helps i guess. The management is a small group of people who have known each other for years, so there is more of a family atmosphere than a corporate one -- little formality, no stiffness or hierarchy.
There was a couple of occasions when the work seemed to mount up and some people in the team had to pull late nights and sacrifice weekends. Resources planning should be done rather pessimistically than optimistically in the future to avoid this.
