Cannot recommend this company to other technical people
Gut am Arbeitgeber finde ich
Not much unfortunately. There is a serious need to change things, else the company will start losing technical people pretty soon.
Schlecht am Arbeitgeber finde ich
Everything I wrote above. But one thing in particular is it does not seem this is a company where the international voice seems to be given an importance. I will prefer working at a place where I can feel I am heard as opposed to a place which is simply planning a lot.
There is a need to look at what you want to achieve. The way this company is right now, technical people will find it really difficult to join and find a home here. There is a need to listen to people.
People rarely do anything apart from sitting on their chairs and planning about what to do next.
I have never seen this level of bad communication in a professional environment. They communicate how they want, then they want to. Also if you are non German and planning to associate with this company, run. None of your ideas will be even considered if you present them in a language other than German, people will be allowed to take decisions if they know German, not because they are qualified in any ways. The simplest of requests like translating a German document with the minutes of meetings into English is not met.
No work here, sit outside the office, have lunch for 2 hours and have meaningless meetings all day. Also no time measure, so people just show up for like 20 minutes daily and then leave without any consequence.
My manager takes absolutely 0 interest in my work.
No interesting tasks technically. I do not know of other departments. This is a media company trying to become technical with no one in the management who knows how to guide them through. There is no investment in anything innovative and the non technical people surrounding the technical team are simply not competent enough to do anything.
Umgang mit älteren Kollegen
If these people were working in a company with even 1% competitiveness, they would not have a job.
Nothing much to say about, most of the benefits present in any average software company.
No chance for a career development here, the managers have no idea about the project, they also take absolutely 0 responsibility for progression. The annual review meetings are not even properly in English yet, also they have no idea what an annual review meting should look like. Basically this is neither an international company, nor a technical company. On top of this, the people who are working here are absolutely not up to the mark.
