I have been working at Poken

Pros

Poken is a really fun place to work. The team is smart, driven, and passionate about what the company does. The company's philosophy of openness, integrity, and humility makes it a very non-toxic work environment!

Cons

Because it is a start-up--and one undergoing explosive growth at that, there are many late nights and do-what-needs-to-be-done situations. This is usually OK with the team because of the passion for the product. However, if you would rather stamp your time card at 17:00 and not think about work until the next morning, it probably isn't the place for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Grow the team; it isn't sustainable for you to keep doing everything at every level during such growth.

    I worked at Poken

    Pros

    Poken has an exciting product with great possibilities. Lausanne is an amazing place to live and work. Switzerland doesn't offer many exciting tech startup work opportunities so Poken is rare.

    Cons

    Poken's top leadership views employees as expendable commodities. People start working there very excited but very quickly they leave or are fired. Employee turnover is huge because of the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You did a good job getting Poken started but you are failing in this next phase. Step back and hire a management team that can grow the team and business.
