What are perks and other benefits like at Prezi?

Pros

Some people at the company (and by some, I mean few) are actually great humans with talent and worth sharing a relationship. Benefits are pretty good and unlimited PTO is nice, but these are hard to save the company from the CONS.

Cons

Where to begin. The product is terrible - it's nearly impossible to learn for new users which means that team renewal rate is abysmal. Management doesn't know what they're doing the majority of the time and always stick up for each other rather than those lower on the totem pole. If feels like they are an enclosed circle and practice cronyism and never shoulder blame when things go wrong. No one is held accountable. Nothing ever gets accomplished on time, if at all. People in every department flee the organization once they realize how bad it is and back-filling their roles is impossible - again, nothing ever gets done. Morale is ALWAYS low. Honestly a pretty dreadful place to work.

Advice to Management

If Prezi was a better product that had more potential to be disruptive, I'd say fire everyone in a leadership role because they don't know what their doing and bring in smarter people. But Prezi will never be a "Must Have" tool, so they are probably content with being what it currently is as an organization.

What is health insurance like at Prezi?

Pros

- Flexible working hours is one of the greatest benefits to choose Prezi. Work from home is not a problem due to the well-equipped office, you can join easily to the meetings remotely. - Free food, snack points, beverages all healthy. - Private health insurance and gym tickets. - Social sensitivity. - Market presence. - There are world class talents at Prezi with amazing mindset working on the product. - If the only thing you can learn here that’s the entrepreneur mindset. Prezi is still in a transition phase, not quite an enterprise company but also not a startup already. - Complex issues to work on both technically and organisation wide so you will definitely improve your teamwork skills. - Approachable and nice people trying to do their best. - Many good people are trying to hold together the things on their own field.

Cons

- Following all elements of Dark Agile precisely. - Lack of original fresh ideas around the products. - Crazy frequent changing priorities basically kills the possibility to get things done but cause massive fuss on product. - Pressuring engineering to estimate the workload (vague ideas) but deadlines have been already set mysteriously on a certain meeting without any engineering representative involved. Once engineering missed the deadline inevitably a new deadline has been set by the same routine and the game restarts from ground zero. - Engineering Missions are separated by tech stacks and platforms ending up engineers unintentionally siloing and not working really on the same feature together. - Over-engineered tech solutions are still kept alive though things started to move towards better solutions slowly – still years to get there and Prezi might not have time for that. - Killing mobile teams last year was an epic fail move. - Engineering culture is somewhat abstract, utterly sceptic and pretentious sometimes . - Competitors are already outperformed Prezi trying to catch up but lack of capable leads to show the way for the rest of the company. - High turnover – there are always open positions at Prezi. Hard to attract experts to join, retention is basically nonexistent. - Super hard to work with the founders – they still don’t understand exactly how a SaaS company supposed to operate but have solid confidence on their own version.

Advice to Management

- Start practicing the values of #wecare, #weteam, #wepicture could help a lot. - Give time for product ideas grown mature enough before presented them saving awful lot of time and stress over the delivery. - Stop dictating deadlines but take some time to reveal real issues of the allegedly slow delivery. - Get rid of tech-based organisation structure in engineering and transform it more like a feature-based real XFT. - Think twice what and how you communicate can be harsh sometimes like the thing “befőtt” or the archery performance gave confusion to lots of people. - Have some time to understand the current characteristics both of workforce market and business alongside how they altered since Prezi debut.
