    I worked at United Internet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fairer, kollegialer Umgang unter den Mitarbeitern
    Erträgliches Stressniveau und Arbeitsanforderung
    Schöne Firmenfeste mit viel Aufwand
    Personalentwicklung vorhanden mit der Möglichkeit der individuellen Fortbildung

    Cons

    Grundgehalt unattraktiv im Vergleich zu anderen Mitwettbewerberunternehmen
    keine attraktiven Nebenleistungen (keine Altersversorgung oder zusätzliche Versicherungen, keine sonstigen Zuschüsse, keine flexiblen Arbeitsmöglichkeiten, keine klimatisierten Büros)
    In der Organisation wird eine flache Hierachien kommuniziert, aber gelebt wird Vorstandsaristokratie ohne Mitbestimmung der Mitarbeiter
    Prozesse im Personalbereich sind häufig intransparent insbesondere im Vergütungsbereich und bei den Karrierewegen

    Advice to Management

    Mehr Vertrauen in die Kompetenzen und das Wissen der Fachkräfte
    Mehr Vertrauen in den Arbeitswillen der Belegschaft und Weg von der Präsenzkultur
    Klare Struktur für Zuständigkeiten von verschiedenen Rollen/Jobs
    Insgesamt Schaffung einer moderneren Unternehmensorganisation

    Android Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Munich, Bayern (Germany)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at United Internet (Munich, Bayern (Germany)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    This opportunity was provided by recruiter. First of all they invited to have skype call with tech specialists. I was given a task to write code parsing from string and evaluating arithmetic expression it is easy task if you familiar with Dijkstra's two-stack algorythm. Also they asked me questions about Android.
    After all they invited me to their office in Munich. As I live in Russia I have to apply for visa to visit Germany, and usually it takes some time to apply for visa and get visa ready. But I received this invitation in such a close date, that I have no chance to wait for United Internet till they book hotel and flight for me (it is required for visa). So I offered to buy it by myself with the following refund from company.
    The interview in Munich took over 3 hours and I was interviewed by HR, Android team-lead and lead of mobile. It was general questions, and then when HR left us it was famous task FizzBuzz with focus on the testing. After this I was interviewed by two android developers, they asked me to architect feature to upload files to some remote server.
    When I returned from Munich I had to wait for almost 3 weeks just to know, that they decided not to proceed. Recruiter couldn't provide me any information on the reasons, cause he also didn't know anything.
    As for the refund process I also didn't get my money back though I provided them with all necessary documents. Nor me, nor my recruiter from Munich not able to contact with them and get any information about the transfer.
    So be careful with this company
