    Great place to work for those that enjoy a startup environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEnergetic, able to get involved in a lot of different things beyond your role, flexible work environment, great people

    ConsLack of process which is typical in startup but a little more intense here as many members of management lack ability to drive process change. Some older mgmt members lack ability to make clear decisions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHeaded in right direction with recent changes, need to invest in infrastructure now

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros-able to work independently and have autonomy
    -work across teams
    -believe in mission
    -Can be a challenge but as organization grows rapidly need to help to develop processes.

    ConsAlthough the positive is the growth and the potential for more and the con is it is hard to keep up. But that is a good issue to have in this economy.

    U.S. job disaster

    Operation (Former Employee)

    Advice to Senior Managementlack of attention to procedure and details will kill this company

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work if you like to say yes

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMarket leader in its category - challenging established massive global players. Global opportunities. Disruptive technology (albeit quite old now). Growing company. Aggressive and ambitious leadership. Sustainability. Heritage brand (UK/North Europe)

    ConsAutocratic leadership who does like to hear yes a lot. Application of the technology is somewhat retro - there is a reason that a global giant like Schweppes decided not to continue with the concept in the 70's. Challenging model for customers (ownership of the gas bottles).

    Advice to Senior ManagementArrogance is not always a good thing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Would not recommend to anyone joining this company

    Finance Administrator (Former Employee)
    H├╝nenberg (Switzerland)

    ProsThe only pro in my mind would be the innovative product SodaStream offers

    ConsVery disorganized and hectic company; not cooperative employees, not knowing why they have been hired and what is expected to be delivered. Lack of company culture, values, transparency, team spirit, communication.
    I would definitely not recommend working at the Finance Department in Europe due to the very poor professional, management and leadership skills of the current CFO Europe.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have to hire real leaders for the critical positions in Europe

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
