No directions, poor management, definitely no Agile, for German speaking only

Software Development (Former Employee)
Berlin (Germany)

I worked at ResearchGate full-time for less than a year

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

ConsNo 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 Senior ManagementStop 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Online Marketing Internship

Online Marketing & PR Internship (Former Employee)
Berlin (Germany)

I worked at ResearchGate as an intern for less than a year

ProsAs 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.

ConsFeedback from interns was appreciated but not explicitly sought.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe management could engage the employees in several projects so that they gain an overall picture of the business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great for getting work experience

Marketing Intern (Former Employee)
Berlin (Germany)

I worked at ResearchGate as an intern for less than a year

ProsOpen, 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.

ConsAs 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.
