    Pros

    Bei Fair Observer arbeitet man mit einem internationalen Team, steht vor anspruchsvollen Aufgaben und Erfahrungen und erlebt die Dynamik und Energie eines aufsteigenden Unternehmens.

    At Fair Observer one works with an international team, faces challenging tasks, and experiences all the dynamism and energy of a budding company.

    Cons

    Mangel an echter Kommunikation mit Team-Mitgliedern aus den USA und UK. Stattdessen eine Menge Skype. Manchmal starke Arbeitsbelastung der Mitarbeiter aufgrund der geringen Größe des Teams.

    Lack of real face to face communication with team members from US and UK. A lot of skyping instead. Sometimes heavy workload per employee due the small size of the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Die Führung sollte realistischer sein, wenn es um die Beurteilung der Machbarkeit neuer Aufgaben geht.

    The leadership should be more realistic when it comes to the assessment of the feasability of new tasks.
