Approves of CEO

Pros

Flexibility to learn new skills, new roles, great benefits (unlimited paid vacay days), and good work/life balance.

Company is small and introverted by nature. Great people, work well together, but may have to make additional effort to get people to open up.

Advice to Management

Don't change the work culture (dramatically). Keep the perks and lifestyle flexibility

  1. Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Germany
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    The first interview was Ok and the second as well. Then they asked to do a case and present it, but before giving me the opportunity to present it, they said the recruitment process was over. It is pretty disrespectful to make people work and to not give them an opportunity to present their work.
    Interview

    Tell me about a product you like and how to improve it.
