What are perks and other benefits like at Takeaway.com?

Pros

Interesting industry Ambitious and young colleagues Well-known company name Company is doing really well Some interesting projects to work on International teams Paid lunch

Cons

The company is extremely chaotic. No people managers. Toxic working culture in which everybody is so scared to make mistakes and get in trouble with higher management that there is a lot of micro-management. C-level has no idea what is going on in the teams and they're too busy/ too important to care. It's also not inclusive - mostly arrogant white men in charge. Nice colleagues but because of the work pressure everybody is only looking at what they're doing and not able to support each other or say 'thank you'. Which is a shame because it would make our teams work more efficient and be happier in general. The salary and secondary benefits are not to compare with competitors in the IT industry and they have announced that working from home won't be possible.

Advice to Management

Make work more enjoyable and get off your high horse. A lower pay is one thing but also not being flexible on benefits like working from home is taking it a step too far. You should act like you're competing for employees with the likes of Spotify, Netflix, Google, Facebook, etc., and not the 'boring old' companies. You'll lose people very quickly and you can't blame them.

How are career development opportunities at Takeaway.com?

Pros

- salary is okay - lots of events for employees which bring together employees from all over Europe - fruit drops for free

Cons

- horrible work atmosphere, we were not allowed to talk to our neighbors, nor have fun while working > the work I did was administering menu cards online which did not include customer contact, so I did not really see the reason behind sitting there not talking for 8 hours a day - the worst part about these rules were that they were only applicable to this specific team - most of the other teams had less strict rules and really enjoyed there work -> the employees in this company definitely do not get treated equally at all - no career opportunities as long as you are not the most liked employee by your manager

Advice to Management

Try treating your teams equally and do not prefer any employee over the other. Also, you have a lots of different talents working for you, try pushing them instead of holding them back!

no career opportunities as long as you are not the most liked employee by your manager
