Arbeitsatmosphäre

Not sure if you can call it an atmosphere. The minute you get into the office, it feels really uncomfortable. Seriosly. No one talks to each other, some people don't even say "hello". Others will do their best to avoid any contact with you. There's a kicker table, but no one plays it. It's "come - work 8 hours - RUN home".

Vorgesetztenverhalten

They don't have any idea how to work with people. All they think about is profits, hours and budget. One's opinions are not appreciated, you'll be told what to do. All your questions will be turned into a joke. They can't listen. No initiative will be appreciated. Anything you do is an "Expectation".

Kollegenzusammenhalt

There is no "team". Everyone is on their own. In the team meetings guys never say a word. You won't be given even a small chance to take part in the life of the company. You come alone, you work alone, you go alone.

Interessante Aufgaben

Some "interesting" (how they call them) "projects" will be created. But in the end it will all turn into routine tasks.

Kommunikation

As described above, there is no communication in the office. People prefer to write in Skype even though they sit half a meter away from each other. Even then the message in Skype will mostly be ignored.

Gleichberechtigung

I think, no one cares about that too much. But there are some women in the office. 60%-70% of the employees left the office within one year so it's hard to tell now.

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

You'll be called bad words the minute you leave their office. It's "okay" to discuss other people who has left with others by the team lead. Anyone not with them is against them.

Karriere / Weiterbildung

No carrier opportunities. Also your budget on professional development will be ignored. There are thousands of stories, why it's impossible to spend that money on you. I guess it's the strategy: instead of growing - cutting budget.

Gehalt / Sozialleistungen

Underpaid. The company makes enough money to be able to pay way more. One banana per week is called "benefit".

Work-Life-Balance

They are using a time tracking system and are exaggerating with it. You'll get your overtime back but only when they need it and not you. You'll be exposed to a lot of stress about your holidays and days off. Need to pick up someone at the airport? Well, first earn that chance. Working at the weekend and on public holidays is a normal practice. They will be surprised, if you refuse to do so.

Verbesserungsvorschläge

  • I don't think they deserve a feedback here. It's been said a lot, it's been done nothing.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

Terrible! Sad really, as it used to be a fantastic atmosphere. Which was ruined, due to the fact the Senior management refuse to take accountability for their actions and show a consistent inability for self-reflection. Naturally, this lead to the good people leaving. 16 resignations in 4 months, this is a sign of problems at the core.

Very controlling also. Clock out every time you are away from you desk. Totally unfair system, that is designed to work against the employees.

Vorgesetztenverhalten

The direct line managers are very professional and a joy to work with. Sadly the same can't be said for the Senior Management, who have zero respect or empathy for the people that work for them.

Kollegenzusammenhalt

People are friendly and mostly easy to get on with. The only problem is, majority of people don’t want to be there. Insert generic analogy: rats abandoning a ship etc.

Interessante Aufgaben

Everything becomes monotonous after a while. If you do something for long enough and it becomes easy, boring, mind numbing and so on.

Now. You’d generally expect that a so called "Fun and dynamic Berlin start up" would offer a constant challenge and a diverse array of tasks, right? Wrong.

Kommunikation

Worst I’ve ever experienced. Besides the fact that nobody in the head office has a firm grip on the company working language (English). Line managers take the brunt of employee dissatisfaction.

When asking for support with HR situations from the one person HR team. Line managers are told they are “incapable and weak managers”. We’re not talking assignments or workload situations here. This is regarding topics such as pay and maternity leave! Seriously uninformed...

Gleichberechtigung

As another review stated only males in management roles.

Also, parents need not apply. If you are unlucky enough to find yourself in a position here. Hope that your kids are healthy, as you won’t get paid if they are sick and you need to stay at home.

Then we have the fact that there is a serious inequality problem between the two offices. Employees in the Austrian office are paid 'significantly more', work less hours and receive far better benefits.

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

There is nobody over the age of 39

Karriere / Weiterbildung

They’ll set goals, string you along and then tell you they don’t feel you hit the goals (without any further explanation). Any excuse not to address poor pay.

Gehalt / Sozialleistungen

One basket of fruit per week for 30 - 40 people. The basket was for about 15 people, although that won’t be a problem at the moment. Musil and drinks. Only filter water from a machine and you need to bring your own bottle.

There used to be snacks and lunch brought in a couple of time a week. This got too expensive and was cut, a common subject in the work place.

Arbeitsbedingungen

You'll be given a Mac. Which is fantastic, expect that you are expected to take this home with you EVERY TIME you leave the office. This is due to the fact that they have security issues and the Berlin office is broken into frequently.

Really, it's more so that you are able to pick up from home at a moments notice.

Umwelt- / Sozialbewusstsein

Team events are far and few between. Expect to be asked to give up your free time to take part in the events, weekends and such. These events are more of an an excuse for the AT team to visit Berlin for a weekend. Berlin team members are expected to join and entertain.

No feeling or appreciation for individuals. People are treated as cattle and shown zero recognition.

Work-Life-Balance

Awful. Expect to pay for all expenses out of your own pocket, when travelling for the company. Travel time is not compensated, in anyway shape or form and you will wait up to 6 weeks to get any expense costs back.

You will be contacted during out of office hours. Also harassed while sick and still asked to come into the office for meetings.

Also, no holidays are allowed between Oct - Dec. Which will not be explained to any new starters until after they start.

Image

Not well know in the start-up industry. Maybe because this place isn't a start-up, even though this is how they want to be seen.

Seen from an external point as unprofessional and greedy.

Verbesserungsvorschläge

  • No point in giving any info here. So many people have tried to make suggestions to the company and they are just ignored. So how about, try listening and take some time for self-reflection.

Pro

Some really fantastic people working in the Berlin team. Sadly they aren’t able to do what they are employed for due to the disorganisation and unprofessionalism of the senior management and the very controlled atmosphere.

Contra

Bad pay for expectations, Cost cutting is apart of everyday life (the company makes a fortune), Incapable Senior Management with zero capability for self reflection, controlling atmosphere, no direction, poor benefits, inequality between offices (AT office is paid 20% more than Berlin), next to zero HR support, terrible tools and resources. I could go on here, but sufficed to say, go somewhere else and save yourself a lot of unnecessary stress.

Arbeitsatmosphäre

Rapid departure of team members:
15 employees have left within a period of 3 months. This includes a general manager, head of positions and multiple line managers. The C-Levels haven't done anything to avoid the departures or anything with the information provided by the departing team members. Other than blaming the employees who have left the company.

The office went from around 30 people to just 15 remaining. The management roles have not been replaced at all.
Imagine coming into an office where there are more desks than coworkers every single day.

"Benefits"
20 bottles of beer on a Friday is seen as a benefit. That equals to less than 1,5 bottle per person. Club Mate and Afri Cola are provided. Around 1 crate per 2 weeks.
There if free fruit once a week. It consists out of 10 bananas and a few apples and pears and a box of strawberries. Probably 1 strawberry per person.
There is free muesli, which is being stocked every 2 weeks.
And that is the only benefit there is.

It is basically like the Hunger Games. Be quick, or you won't have anything.

These "benefits" are the least that is being provided in any given Berlin start-up.

Time Tracking
The company works with a time tracking system. Before it was being introduced the employees have been asked to vote on the system. The majority was against it.

Vorgesetztenverhalten

Terrible. The C-Levels don't shy away from belittling the line managers or head of's in front of their team. Mostly when the person him/herself in not in the office or has left the company.

Faul language is being used.

The moment something goes wrong within a department the line managers or head of's are being blamed. Regardless if the person in question has pointed out on several occasions that things aren't going as planned.

The C-levels don't take any responsibility and don't reflect to themselves.

Kollegenzusammenhalt

Everyone knows that everyone is unhappy and is just waiting for the next one to leave. There is an unspoken understanding between all coworkers in terms of unhappiness.

Due to the time tracking system no-one actually spends some time together in the office. Lunch together, playing kicker or a quick chat is something that does not happen anymore. Everyone is practically on their own.

Interessante Aufgaben

For a Berlin start-up company the company is not innovative at all. Every single idea that has been proposed by the departments have been cancelled. The company is a classic copy-paste of the competitors.

The moment you learn your daily task, it becomes a routine. With the company not investing in new opportunities the tasks become highly repetitive and dull.

Employees are being hired without any possibility to grow further within their field. This leads to employees resigning for their positions. Imagine doing the same task for a period of 3 years day in day out.

Kommunikation

The C-Levels have communication problem between them. This has major impacts on the head of the departments and the line managers. How is one suppose to communicate decisions to their teams, if the C-level aren't even aware of each other?

Line managers are being blamed for anything that goes wrong while they are out of office. The C-Levels end up having discussions with the team members of the line managers. It seems like a tactic of the C-Level to point fingers at people whom either have left the company or are currently not in the office.

There is no-one in the company who takes responsibility of running projects. The moment something goes wrong, everyone looks for someone to blame.

The HR department is responsible for more than just HR. Think of budgeting and legal. This leads to the HR department not being able to support any employee with their requests. Important to note is that the HR employees are also directly the assistant of the C-Levels. Leading tho no-one trusting the HR department with their issues.

The company language is English. 80% of the employees are non native Germans. The C-Levels and HR Department do not speak English on a desired level.

Gleichberechtigung

There is no single female in a leading position. I could count the amount of female employees in the entire company on 1 hand.

Umgang mit älteren Kollegen

No-one is being discriminated based on their age. Thank god.

Karriere / Weiterbildung

You have the possibility to request a workshop within an allocated budget. But anything you learn during these workshop can not be implemented in your day to day responsibilities. Because the company is not interested in investing in new opportunities. The company prefers to stick to their known routine and will not take any risks. Each and every development is done with minimum requirements.

Gehalt / Sozialleistungen

You can request a salary increase once a year. If you are in your first year, you cannot request a salary increase.

You don't have the possibility to grow within your department. You will be doing the same task day in day out. Which makes it impossible to develop your skills. And that makes it impossible to receive a salary increase. It is a vicious cycle.

Employees have left the company for a pay that is almost 20% more. This does question the company's pay model.

If you by any luck will be considered for a certain increase, you will first be asked to present a business plan. This plan will come with targets set by C-Levels. And then you might be considered for a pay increase. Without actually knowing what the increase will be. It happened that employees have been offered an increase they would have never agreed to if they knew beforehand.

Arbeitsbedingungen

The office is really dirty. You would catch a disease just by looking at the microwave or carpet.

When the office had around 50 employees, 40 men had to share 1 cubical.

The conference rooms are lightened with artificial light. There is no sunlight coming in. The office itself is just a big room without any decoration. It looks dull.

All decoration is classic IKEA. Nothing major or impressive or "inviting".

After all this negativity I could probably mention 1 positive thing. You get to choose between a MacBook or a Windows laptop. Under the condition that you take your laptop home with you every single day. Regardless if you are traveling abroad that evening for an entire 2 weeks.

Umwelt- / Sozialbewusstsein

The company does not participate it anything related to the topic. The main question will be "how much will this cost us?"

Work-Life-Balance

This is probably the only great aspect of the company. Core hours are between 10 and 17.30. And on Fridays until 14.30. However, you do have to make sure that you hit your average of 40hrs per week by the end of a quarter. If you manage to built enough over-hours, you can request 1 day off per month or leave a bit earlier whenever you can.

So it is being sold as "flexible" whereas it is not flexible at all.

Everything you do is being tracked. You go for a smoke: pause your clock. Break: pause. Personal phone call: pause. Read an article online: pause.

This leads to employees becoming vicious. Conversations such as "But this person did not clock out for a lunch break" have happened on multiple occasions. Or even a C-Level telling an employee off "you did not clock out for your phone call".

Image

Not known in the Berlin start-up scene. A laughing stock to the competitors. Everything is being copy pasted from the competitor. Which is not a bad thing really - if you can manage to do it better. However, projects are being developed with minimum requirements. Just to be cost saving.

What is even more sad is that the company has asked several times to delete the negative reviews. Stating that I have not been working there. It is just sad. What is even sadder is that after a bunch of negative reviews there is a positive review stating that everything is great "but the internet did not work in the beginning". Seriously?

Verbesserungsvorschläge

  • Stop blaming and start listening to your employees. There must be something wrong if everyone is leaving the company one by one. Solve the communication issues between yourselves. Then start working on the communication issues with your team. Invest in your employees. Don't make them look bad towards their coworkers. Even if they have left the company. Learn to trust. Basically take some communication classes. Also: You're welcome for this constructive feedback.

Pro

They seemed to be interested and actually wanting to bring the company forward and wanting to be there for their employees. But time has shown that it was just another play.

Contra

Ignorance. Pointing fingers at others. Belittling your employees. Empty promises. Not documenting anything and hiding behind "I did tell you that". Key roles do not speak sufficient English, whereas 80% of the company does not speak German. HR is located in other country, whereas a bigger part of the company is located in Berlin. No efforts to increase employee motivation, especially during a crisis where the majority of the employees have left the company. Not communicating with your employees when visiting the office.
