Gut am Arbeitgeber finde ich

People are great. I love my candidates and clients - my company supports me so I can focus on them.

Schlecht am Arbeitgeber finde ich

No company is perfect. This is also sales. Some people will hate sales in general.


Keep nurturing people at all levels. From those with less confidence because they are junior to those who are senior and might be bored with the routine / frustrated they are not "where they are supposed to be".


Plenty of windows, plants, snacks and coffee. Its in the heart of Berlin (Potsdamer Platz). Its no Amazon office or fancy WeWork but its certainly a fine place to work.


Feedback is often. Weekly office calls. Lots of people to share concerns with - no real problems.


Great team, diverse, motivated and friendly. Very social but not with pressure.


Its a sales job -
First 1 - 2 years, it will feel like work life balance is tough.
Making a lot of money and success will always require time/sacrifice.
However I'm in my 5th year, I can easily work 30 to 40 hours a week and bring in a lot of success / money.


People from every country, colour, race, religion and so forth. Very accepting and diverse culture. The one area I'd like to see even more diversity is, people with families - its a younger group (22 to 33).


all things given if needed. Special requests i'm sure are accommodated. Flexibility and trust is given - not right from the beginning but after someone has been with the company for 4/5 months.


Recycling available and followed. Charity stuff organsied. Could do more but we are just a simple consulting office so not sure how much more.


For me its good, but naturally I am bias as I have been here for 5 years.
Last year I won a free trip to Vegas, to Switzerland (skiing) and a Rolex. On top of this is commission and expenses. However, I'm one of the longer people in the company.
The reality, the 1st year will be tough (it was for me) and the 2nd / 3rd year you can start to do some great things.
Just be patient, stick at it and believe in yourself. Don't beat yourself (and others up) if you thinks it is not right for you.


Plenty of options to develop your career but it will be proactive. Do not expect a clear "Do this and in 2 years you are XXX" .

For example, some people become managers in 12 months. Some in 4 years. Some ask (and are given) additional training in their 3rd month - some never ask for it.
