Chaotic, hectic, no long-term vision. I wish I hadn't joined this company.

Schlecht am Arbeitgeber finde ich

Toxic company culture. Long hours - you need 55-60 hours just to do your regular stuff, not mentioning even that you don't have time to learn. Those who aspire to more, work even longer. At the end of the day you are just exhausted - it's just the matter of time when you burn out.


Care about people. And it's not just salary.


Very hectic and chaotic. All tasks are urgent. Everyone is just trying to fix the basics, there is no focus on long-term development. No defined processes or standards - even getting access to some IT tools can be a nightmare. All this above is the core of the corporate culture. They call it dynamic and fast-paced, but in fact it just impedes the work and is toxic. The employee turnover is very high, people leave the company en masse and are replaced by new people, often less competent.


Communication has improved recently, but still leaves much to be desired.


Within teams it works well, otherwise it's relatively bad. People are not cooperative, when you reach out to colleagues you often have a feeling you'd better figure it out yourself. When you are trying to be naturally nice to colleagues, they think you are just insincere in attempt to get something from them.


Absent. Be prepared for long hours. The company offers flexible hours, but this means you can do your 10-12 hour day whenever you want - starting at 6am or finishing at 9pm.


Depends on the manager. There are better ones and worse ones. The better ones are those who leave the company most often, though.


The company is trying to do good for the local community, but it's core - products - is not really on the agenda.


Look at the global financial results of the recent years and guess whether you will get your bonus (probably no).


When you start working here, be prepared you will never be promoted. You need to change jobs within the company (and often move abroad) to get to a higher position. People who work in one role are virtually never promoted - this is the reason why a lot of people leave the company.
