    Pros

    Tolle Unternehmenskultur, tolle Mission, tolle Aussichten nach Vertragsende.

    Great company culture, great mission, great prospects post-contract

    Cons

    An der Oberfläche ist dies ein tolles Unternehmen, aber es bleibt wenig Platz für persönliche Entwicklung.

    On the surface this is a great company, but there is very little room for personal development.

    Advice to Management

    Investieren Sie mehr in die aktuelle Belegschaft, anstatt für neue Mitarbeiter zu werben.

    Invest more in current employees rather than advertising for new ones!

    Pros

    -Starker Fokus auf Unternehmenskultur und starker Glaube an die Vorteile der Plattform

    -Gratis Mittagessen

    -High focus on company culture and a strong belief in the benefit of the platform.
    -Free lunch

    Cons

    Für ein Unternehmen, das man auch eine "Praktikantenfabrik" nennen könnte, verwendet man hier große Mühe darauf, deutlich zu machen, dass sie Mitarbeiter zweiter Klasse sind. Man macht einen großen Unterschied zwischen Vollzeitangestellten und dem Rest (Teilzeitlern und Praktikanten)

    z.B. verschlossene Spiele-Etage, steht nur den Vollzeitleuten zur Verfügung. Mitarbeiterversammlung nur für Vollzeitangestellte.

    For a company that could be called an Intern Factory, they seem to go to great pains to highlight that they are sub employees. Demonstrating a clear difference between full-times and the rest (part-timers and intern)
    e.g A locked games floor, only accessible to full-timers. All hands meeting only for full-timers.

    Pros

    Technology Stack in Backend und Frontend sehr interessant und einige herausragende Leute arbeiten dort

    Technology stack in backend and frontend is very interesting and some brillant people are working there

    Cons

    Keine Anweisungen in der Software-Entwicklung, definitiv keine Verwendung von Agile-Methoden, vage Akzeptanzkrtierien, kleiner Freundeskreis trifft Entscheidungen (nur auf Deutsch), keine Wertschätzung, egal wie lange man dabei ist.

    No directions in software development, definitely not using agile methodologies, acceptance criteria vague, a small group of friends are taking decisions (in German only) no matter how senior you are, you will not be valued.

    Advice to Management

    Hört auf, nur auf Deutsch zu reden, wenn Ihr internationale Leute anheuern wollt, wendet echte Softwareentwicklungs-Technologien an, hört auf nicht benötigte Leute anzuheuern und nutzt die Probezeit, damit Dinge sich einspielen können.

    Stop using only german if you would like to hire international people, apply real software development methodologies, do not hire people you don't really need and use the probation period to settle down things.

    Pros

    Als ein Startup-Unternehmen ermöglicht ResearchGate Praktikanten, die Verantwortung für Projekte vom ersten Tag an zu übernehmen. Dank der flachen Hierarchie hat man einen direkten Kontakt zur Verwaltung, die die Teams mit ihrer Expertise unterstützt.

    As a startup company ResearchGate allows interns to take over responsibility for projects from day one. Thanks to the flat hierarchy one has a direct contact to the management which supports the teams with its expertise.

    Cons

    Feedback von Praktikanten wurde geschätzt, aber nicht explizit gesucht.

    Feedback from interns was appreciated but not explicitly sought.

    Advice to Management

    Das Management könnte die Mitarbeiter in verschiedenen Projekten engagieren, so dass sie ein Gesamtbild des Unternehmens gewinnen.

    The management could engage the employees in several projects so that they gain an overall picture of the business.

    Pros

    Offene, freundliche Umgebung. Viele Lernmöglichkeiten, aber man muss sie selbst ergreifen. Viele Freiheiten, und man muss selbst die Initiative zur Erledigung von Aufgaben ergreifen.

    Open, friendly environment. Lots of opportunities to learn, but you have to put your hand up. Lots of freedom and you have to take the initiative to achieve tasks.

    Cons

    Als Praktikant gibt es wenig Raum zur Entwicklung. Es gibt nicht viele Vollzeitangestellte im Marketing, viele sind Praktikanten.

    As an intern, there is not much room to progress. There are not too many full time employees in the marketing department, a large majority are interns.
