I would recommend InterNations to continue its efforts to be as eco-friendly as possible. InterNations should also continue to keep up the good work by offering feedback rounds to its team members and making sure that all suggestions are taken on board or at least considered.
I am happy with the working atmosphere at InterNations. The company praises itself on being an organization with flat hierarchies, and I definitely feel confident to approach and talk to anyone in the office, from intern all the way up to team leads, department heads and the CEOs themselves.
There are a lot of feedback rounds where you can evaluate both your own performance and that of your supervisor. I'm also regularly encouraged to provide feedback whenever the need arises.
I absolutely love and commend the work that our Content & Communications team is doing to ensure that we have really great videos about both member stories and team members working for InterNations.
Since the introduction of our home office policy last year, my work-life-balance has significantly improved. I am now in a position where I have the security of knowing that if an emergency pops up, I can spontaneously take a day of home office. I am also able to take extended periods of home office if I give my supervisor some notice. This is such a great relief for so many of the expats that work at InterNations, because it's often a struggle to juggle your annual leave days between going on vacation and visiting friends and family back home.
There are a lot of different things that are offered to me, such as workshops and also individual trainings based on my needs. I have completed several online courses and they proved very helpful for my daily work.
In recent times I have noticed that my supervisor and management in general have made the salary topic much more transparent, especially in the last official feedback talk of the year. I also think this entirely depends on what team you're working in.
I'm really happy that InterNations is finally taking the topic of sustainability seriously. I do, however, think that we have a long way to go before we can call ourselves a green/eco-friendly company. It's a great shame that there's still not the possibility to recycle plastic waste.
As mentioned in "Arbeitsatmosphäre", I really enjoy working with both my direct colleagues and also collaborating with team members in other departments and have never encountered any issues when doing so.
I really like how work anniversaries are now displayed on our Confluence start page. It's really great to see long-standing team members celebrated!
I have a very pleasant working relationship with my supervisor, and thanks to the regular feedback rounds on offer, I have the possibility to bring up anything that's bothering me if necessary.
The office can get quite hot and stuffy in the summer, but since last year we now thankfully have portable air con units in each room to make things more comfortable!
Since the introduction of Slack, team communication has greatly improved and there are now a huge number of additional possibilities to reach out to individual team members or departments as a whole. We also have a Confluence space that provides a lot of really useful information about company-wide topics, as well as the latest updates with the individual departments.
In general I feel like there is a great gender balance here at InterNations, although it would be great to see more female developers.
In general my tasks are varied and I also enjoy the freedom to take on additional projects whenever I want.
Pretty much nothing. Left the company after a couple of months
Again, read above
This would turn into a multiple pages text so just read the things I stated above
Not ideal at all. Given the legacy and the questionable state of the techstack, it's no wonder that barely anyone is really enjoying working on it. The scattered setup of the teams in tiny single offices across two separate buildings is not helping. Also, you barely find talented and motivated people at InterNations unfortunately, so don't expect to learn a lot unless you're just starting your career. If you look for a challenge and personal development, keep looking.
Not the best, a lot of poor user ratings
Great. No overhours
As said before, either quite good or extremely poor. No monetary benefits. Always on time.
Colleagues were quite nice, at least in Product and Development. You don't really get in touch with other departments so everyone pretty much stays within their field.
Your age doesnt make a difference in how you're treated.
My superior was great, although I know that that was a lucky exception.
One of the worst parts. The office situation is literally horrible and for what ever reason, they decided not to change it. When I was there, the company was planning to relocate but last minute decided against it. I get that Munich is expensive, but these offices are actually so bad that I couldn't wait to get out of there. Tiny, dark single offices! 4 people crunched into 15qm. Outdated, crappy laptops, poor monitors. Bad! No place to relax, nothing nice or beautiful, coffemachines from 1997 that are constantly broken, no goodies, nothing
None, literally. Especially not from management.
Most important positions are filled with men, don't expect to make a career here.
Boring ideas, complicated and talk-intensive meetings, the exact opposite of innovative and agile!
the teamamd the general environment will be the best I will ever experience. everyone is welcoming and helpful, truly international and they all bring something new to the table due to their diverse experiences
it prefers hirinf external candidates instead of promoting and supporting its own employees. there are leads with no experience or expertise or willingness to change. feedback about a superior is not followed through.
the company should support its employees more and help them develop by promoting when possible. it should also work more on transparency and listen to feedback from employees about the direction it's going into.
Very friendly people, feels like a family rather than a job
it generally has a good image. it's a startup and it's trying to also present a fresh product that can't be found anywhere else while also maintaining its focus on being local
there is unfortunately no way to go up as the company prefers hiring external candidates instead of promoting their own so within 2 years you hit a wall
salaries are always paid on time and quite fair taking the Munich market into account. they have a pension plan in place and a great deal with a bank for their employees. however there are no bonuses or any other benefits.
we try to recycle and reduce waste however we can
the team ia fairly young, however it's just as easy to work even with older colleagues
some leads do not even have any experience or expertise, not willingness to do anything. lack of transparency is also a big problem, as well as your career path (as there's nowhere to go)
the company tries really hard to improve everything from a technical perspective and is now even going into a full makeover. the only problem would be the temperatures in summer inside the offices
Not the most transparent management, communication top to bottom rarely happens
the workload is evenly distributed however, you can't truly influence anything outside your team (sometimes not even there)
Unser Team ist einfach super, wir begegnen uns respektvoll und wertschätzend und haben einfach Spaß miteinander. Unsere beiden Gründer engagieren sich mit Herzblut für ihre Firma und sind offen für Feedback und nehmen es ernst. Ein absolutes Highlight sind die jährlichen Team Trips.
Die Kommunikation könnte an manchen Stellen früher passieren, um Transparenz zu fördern.
Alle sind offen, freundlich und hilfsbereit. Ich liebe den kulturellen Mix und den offenen Austausch untereinander. Leistung und Engagement wird honoriert.
Es herrscht eine gute Work-Life-Balance, in Stoßzeiten können schon mal Überstunden anfallen, und ich kann sie auch wieder abbauen.
Jeder der lernen will, kann hier etwas lernen. Eigeninitiative und proaktives Nutzen der angebotenen Möglichkeiten sind gefragt.
Ich finde den Zusammenhalt unter Kollegen sehr gut. Wir besprechen alles offen miteinander. Deshalb komme ich gern zur Arbeit, unser Team ist einfach toll.
Ich kann Entscheidungen nachvollziehen, wenn ich sie auch nicht immer genauso treffen würde. Ich werde geschätzt und meine Stimme zählt.
Das Büro könnte schöner sein und es wird daran gearbeitet, diese Situation zu verbessern.
Wir bekommen Updates in den monatlichen Team Meetings und ich erhalte alle wichtigen Informationen (manchmal explizit auf Nachfrage, daher nicht volle Punktzahl).
Ich genieße es, mein Aufgabengebiet frei zu gestalten und es gibt immer wieder interessante Projekte und Initiativen, die aus dem Team kommen.
* Integrate education and training measures into personal job profiles and skills development
* Try to improve retention rate by offering better options for long-term careers
* Maybe rethink salary levels / general perks to remain attractive for new people in an expensive city like Munich
The general atmosphere and the team spirit are two of the things I value most about working at InterNations. Of course, we now have at least 20 different teams across the entire company, so I can only speak for mine: I'm generally happy with the relaxed atmosphere at the office, the fact that I can work mostly independently, and my smart, helpful, and friendly colleagues. If anything, the only issue I see is us sometimes being too friendly and relaxed -- many of us are so used to working with each other that we probably don't notice some "blind spots" (i.e. room for potential improvement) anymore. But that's really what the Germans call "Jammern auf hohem Niveau". :) The team events for the entire company are also well organized and usually a lot of fun.
In my team, working additional hours is rare for anyone not in a team lead / management position. If you are a regular employee or an intern, you usually have more or less regular office hours. If there's an important deadline, everyone does stay longer if necessary, but that's the exception rather than the rule. However, I think it's a bit sad that things like flexible working hours, home office, or making up for the occasional evening spent at the office mostly depend on your supervisor's goodwill. Personally, I haven't got any issues with the way it's been handled informally in our team, but it would be nice to show greater appreciation for flexibility with an official company-wide policy.
I really appreciate that we do have regular offers in the form of monthly lectures and workshops, as well as free German lessons for our non-German employees. But I think further education and training options need to be a lot better integrated into personal skills development and career path planning.
Okay for regular employees, I guess. Can't say anything about salary on management level, obviously. Considering that this is Munich, the salary might be a bit better, but I honestly can't say whether this is due to the actual salary or to the plain crazy living costs around here (esp. for new arrivals facing the local rental market for the first time!). I really like having a sponsored company pension plan, though.
I think some people in this company really care about topics like sustainability or CSR, but I also miss some more large-scale efforts and active, structural commitment to such causes.
See my comment on "Arbeitsatmosphäre" above.
This is the one aspect of diversity that we fall definitely short of. I think we only have a handful of employees aged 45 or older. Quite a few positions are entry-level jobs, and there doesn't seem to be much interest in retaining people for a long-term career track.
Again, that probably depends on your direct supervisor, but mine has never been anything but clear in communication, constructive in giving feedback, and helpful in difficult situations.
Could be worse, but could also be better. I know that the ongoing search for new office space for a growing company is very difficult in Munich, but our current location is not ideal. Working in two buildings hampers internal communication (see above); one of the buildings is also lacking a proper reception area, stricter security measures, and air-con in summer. The office has really good transport connections (for which I'm very grateful) and lots of shops, banks, fast food joints etc. nearby, but the neighborhood is kind of loud and a bit dodgy. Our team lodge is really comfy and stylish, though, but still, I'm looking forward to what another, larger, office in a different neighborhood might look like.
My rating for communication really depends on the level within the company organization that we are talking about. Within our team, we have at least one weekly meeting to keep us informed of what's going on and what everyone is working on (plus the usual gossip in the office kitchen), so no complaints there. On a horizontal level, it's hard to know for half the company what the other half is working on: different departments are located in two separate buildings, and I think this has really hindered the informal information flow. The monthly team meeting with its short official update is really not enough in that respect. Vertically, I think quite a bit of information can get lost in the "trickle down effect" from upper management, too, so that's another reason why there's only three stars out of five.
We are a very international company, so we probably do better than plenty of other businesses when it comes to national, linguistic, or ethnic diversity. (I say "probably" since I might be the wrong person to judge such a sensitive issue, but I haven't become aware of anything obviously negative in this regard.)
I do feel more at ease when talking about gender, though. I think I can safely say that ours is definitely not a hostile work environment, but I miss a certain commitment to active support and development in that respect.
That depends a lot on your job and responsibilities. My position has sort of accrued a lot of different tasks over time, which I have rather enjoyed in terms of variety, so I'd say I'm generally satisfied with this aspect of working here. But there are some other positions in other teams which I can imagine to quickly become repetitive and which are best regarded as temporary entry-level jobs for recent graduates.
Außerdem bekommt man viele Verantwortung und verschiedene Aufgaben. Ich finde es großartig, dass das Unternehmen das Feedback, Anregungen und Meinungen von den Praktikanten betrachtet. Bei InterNations, alle
Die Leute hier sind sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und super nett! Die verschiedenen Abteilungen arbeiten mit einem unglaublichen Gespür für Teamarbeit. Man ist motiviert, zur Arbeit zu gehen. Ich finde die Arbeitsatmosphäre sehr angenehm, die Kollegen sind immer am Lächeln und gut gelaunt.
Während des Praktikums lernt man viele neue Sachen. Viele Training Sessions und Workshops von Mitarbeitern sogar external Speakers werden angeboten. Die Praktikanten kommen von viele verschiedene Nationen, also man lernt auch viele neue Leute sowie ihre Kulturen kennen, das finde ich sehr interessant.
Ich kann InterNations nur weiterempfehlen, es ist ein großartiges „Training-Feld“ für Studierende.
Ich finde es großartig, dass das Unternehmen das Feedback, Anregungen und Meinungen von den Praktikanten betrachtet. Bei InterNations, alle Praktikanten sind ein wichtiger Teil des Teams. Man darf sogar in ihren eigenen Projekten arbeiten, bei denen der gesamten Unternehmen profitieren kann.
Es war niemals langweilig! Außerdem bekommt man viele Verantwortung und verschiedene Aufgaben.
die jungen Menschen = ein tolles Team
Die Arbeitsbedingungen, teilweise das Management, keine Gleitzeit, schlechter Gehalt, keine Perspektive für eine längerfristige Anstellung
Gehalt, Fluktuation der Festangestellten, Homeoffice, generell mehr Flexibilität und Vertrauen gegenüber den Mitarbeitern
Die Firma ist bei den jungen Leuten beliebt, allerdings nicht wegen den Arbeitsbedingungen, sondern wegen den jungen Menschen und der tollen Zusammenarbeit. Für den ersten Job ein super Einstieg, aber nach spätestens 2 Jahren sind alle weg. Diese Fluktation ist von der Fima gewünscht, es wird einem verdeutlicht, dass alle ersetzbar sind.
Keine Gleitzeit, kein Überstundenabbau, Unternehmen recht Familienfreundlich
Kein Weiterentwicklungspotential, keine Weiterbildungsmöglichkeiten oder Aufstiegsoptionen, ab und zu gibt es Seminare und Yoga Kurse
Es sind die Mitarbeiter, die diese Firma ausmachen: Junge Leute aus der ganzen Welt, englischsprachige Arbeit, tolle Teams, sehr viel Hilfsbereitschaft untereinander und Spaß
Teilweise schlecht gewählte Führungskräfte ohne Personalkompetenzen, unprofesionelle Verhaltensweise von Fürhungskräften gegenüber Ihren Mitarbeitern
Urlaubstage 25, keine Gleitzeit, Überstunden können nicht abgebaut werden, sehr niedriger Lohn (besonders für München)!
Es gibt sehr (!) viele Feedback Runden und Meetings, die Frage ist allerdings, inwieweit das Feedback dann auch umgesetzt wird...
Sehr niedriges Gehalt, besondes für München, keine Sozialleistungen, keine Gehaltserhöhungen
Aufgabenbereiche leider sehr monoton - guter Einstiegsjob aber ohne Weiterentwicklungspotential - es wird sehr schnell langweilig
- Great team
- Interesting tasks
- Understanding management
- Open communication
- The team is spread between 2 buildings, so people in one building not always know people working in the second one.
- The internship salary is way too low for Munich
I think finding an office in a better neighborhood, which is of course not easy in Munich, would be a good idea.
Everyone is very friendly and always ready to help
Majority of employees believe in what they are doing and use the services of the company themselves.
Management is very understanding in this sense. The planning in advance of the vacation is needed of course, but even a short-notice vacations are often approved. Never a problem if an employee being a bit late or have to go a bit early. Management trusts employee's judgement in how to better use the time in order to get work done.
Some of the interns stay with the company as trainees or at junior positions. However, it mostly depends on the timing of the internship.
Internship salary is very low, considering that Munich is a very expensive city.
Great and very international team with a lot of interesting people
The team is very young, so not a lot of older colleagues in there.
It gets a bit crowded in some offices, but it got much better since the move to a second building. The neighborhood is quite scary to walk alone in the evening.
Interns are integral part of the team. No difference in communication between an intern and a full-timer.
Great opportunity for interns to perform various tasks and take part in different projects.
dynamic, interesting, importnant and valuable product.
nothing that can hinder work process, only minor things.
Of course there's a lot of work as in any start up, but nobody stays at work till midnight, it's never encouraged. The team often organises fun get togethers and offsite activities.
since the company is relatively small, there's not that much space to step up the ladder. However, regular trainings and learning sessions are organized to cater specific learning and professional needs of the staff.
Average salary (for Munich) with some nice extra perks included.
Awesome, international, young, fun and smart colleagues.
The top management is open to feedback, approachable and listens to good ideas from the staff
Communication level depends on the team, but in general there are many opporunities to exchange
The things have changed drastically in the last year and the company became quite progressive with a lot of interesting porjects for everybody to get involved in.
