-- First years get a whirlwind trip to Oktoberfest. yes THE Oktoberfest. You may also be lucky enough to get onboarded in Europe. -- Bagel breakfast every Friday -- Many opportunities to connect with colleagues internationally. Skype (with voice and video) is used heavily, as are other conferencing technologies.
-- Open concept seating. Frequent desk moves. -- The 3rd floor and the 4th floor don't talk much to each other. -- Some trips are too short to compensate for the jet lag. -- Agile methodology = numerous useless meetings -- If you start struggling, you are doomed. If you get served with a Development Plan, you are definitely on your way out.
Advice to Management
Stop pushing out the iCongo people. Stop advertising for more bodies to replace them. A lot of historical knowledge has been lost. Invest more in retraining.

New quality of hires is improving and maturing the organization. International opportunities across multiple verticals. Emphasis placed on physical work environment and improving office space. Merger with iCongo increased North American footprint. Opportunities in emerging markets.
Company focus is on increasing valuation of the organization - not necessarily improving the product or services. Compensation and benefits are quite low making it difficult to retain good people over time. Founding hybris employees are almost "cultish" in perspective and behavior - almost bullying. Not family friendly or diverse compared to other IT organizations of this size. Tension between North American and German management styles.
Advice to Management
Hire from the outside. Purge old wood.
