    Pros

    As long as you do as you're told, everything is okay and fine. There's cooffee machines and some nice people and all.

    Cons

    there's absolutely no regard in pointing out possible problems or bumps in the road - you're just considered a troublemaker. Doesn't matter that exactly those things do come true.

    Advice to Management

    look into things not only from the "show me the numbers" perspective... number can be (and are) manipulated and every project can be considered a success if you only crunch the numbers long enough.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at freenet (Hamburg (Germany)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Position was in Hamburg. HR called first and said they're not gonna pay what I'm asking and whether I'm ok with less. Then I had to got through an assessment center with about 20 other people applying for various positions on a similar career level. That was one afternoon, pretty easy and standard stuff.

    Few days later was an in-person with a HR manager and my upcoming manager. Unfortunately he was stuck in a meeting so someone else filled in who was completely unprepared.

    The HR guy was junior and asked a lot of questions from the book which was irrelevant.
