I have been working at cleverbridge full-time
- Not a startup company where all employees are overworked, but not a mega-corp where employees are just a number. Leadership knows most employees by name and face.
- Opportunities for advancement are everywhere. Unlike many companies, cleverbridge is willing to invest in shadowing, internships, and both internal and external training so employees can promote to a career they WANT to be in. Employees just have to make their interest known!
- Excellent benefits package, regular company events & activities, Wii room, opportunities for travel to Germany
- Product offering is lagging behind some competitors and the market in general in certain areas, and cleverbridge is working hard to catch up. This has caused some prioritization and collaboration issues among various development projects the company is working on.
- Certain positions (particularly Customer Service and some development positions) are underpaid based on industry average and volume of workload.
Advice to Management
- Pay all employees what they're worth, not just what you can afford. They'll reward you in the long run for it.
- Tap Chicago's development talent pool (existing and hireable) and move some big development projects away from Cologne. All the big projects happen there right now, and the company's goals could be accomplished more efficiently by splitting large development projects between offices.
I applied online. I interviewed at cleverbridge (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.
