Toxic work environment, be careful of what you wish

2,46

Arbeitsatmosphäre

Worst and most stressful work environment I ever had. Very unmotivated colleagues, no integration at all, very bad IT practices

Vorgesetztenverhalten

Very weak manager performance, passive and not engaging

Kollegenzusammenhalt

There was no team. Only a bunch of dudes sitting close to each other. Rarely somebody had will to help, the impression was "it's your problem, not mine". But there are quite often team events.

Interessante Aufgaben

The tasks were fine, but the code quality was the sketch from hell. They reinvent the wheel building their own tooling, but with worse performance and UX. And guess who has to maintain that

Kommunikation

First work day: 1400 emails at my inbox in..... OUTLOOK
Seriously??

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

The older colleagues were already unmotivated and didn't care about what they were doing or where it was going, neither for the quality.

Karriere / Weiterbildung

The company is growing and pumping a lot of money on its European division to expand fast, so if you got the skills you might step up pretty easy

Gehalt / Sozialleistungen

The compensation was excellent. A good salary with an amazing shares bonus, with team event every two months and a few benefits like gym discount and pre-made meal packs (claimed to be fit/healthy but not really). That's a big win and super attractive, but after my life became hell coming home depressed every single day for a month, I decided it was not really worth

Arbeitsbedingungen

Quite decorated office, but not really functional. Just returned furniture put together. Not a cozy environment, bunches of people in the same room with very noisy environment. Also, an office without windows, are you kidding me?

Umwelt- / Sozialbewusstsein

There's only a simple "we do some charity" thing, but just to look cool

Work-Life-Balance

There's so much overhead from communication, that if you want to achieve something for the day, it needs at least 30 hours.

Funny how my colleagues used to complain so much about the systems and quality, but still keep going on and faking it when superiors asked about. Maybe that explains a lot about the team atmosphere

Verbesserungsvorschläge

  • I don't even know where to start from.... just push the reset button and cut at least half of the bureaucracy

Pro

The compensation is exactly what I looked for, but the work environment just made me change my mind about what's really important in life

Contra

The systems UX, code quality, spiteful colleagues
