    I have been working at Emakina part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People are curious and seek for continuous improvement of themselves and their work. It is no nonsense company. Our way of working is agile. We have more than 20 nationalities, very international. The company events are awesome, the annual beach party, quarterly events, Friday drinks, yoga, boot camp and much more fun stuff.

    Cons

    Emakina could show more insights towards the company's long term vision, however Emakina is clear in their core activities.

    Great clients to work with: both in ambitions & international coverage. As Account Director you have the freedom to really own the accounts and work intensively with your team.

    Cons

    We have a focus on salesforce clouds in the Netherlands, so if you are looking for other technology stacks..

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Emakina full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Flexible working hours. - Udemy and Pluralsight accounts. - Snacks, happy hours, company events, etc.

    Cons

    - Job definitions are wrong! The company looks for .Net or JAVA Developer but you will end up developing websites through CMS/platforms such as Demandware, Adobe Experience Manager, Sitefinity, etc. Furthermore, you may encounter worse that is entering content to sites and manual testing (I think this is not the best option for software developers). Therefore, be careful about the job descriptions, ask detailed questions...

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth clearly. Give enough information by explaining reasons. Listen your team members.

    I worked at Emakina full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I’ve learnt a lot. That’s for sure. By the project you are assigned, you may improve yourself on e-commerce platforms, Java, .Net or even PHP based projects. You can also improve yourself in some agile project management. Which also improve your English verbal communication skills. There is an opportunity to improve yourself by using Online Courses like Udemy.

    Cons

    If you’re a junior, there are so much thing to can learn. The project you are assigned (e-commerce, .Net, Java or PHP) and the team members will help you improve yourself in software skill topics. But by the time past, you will understand you’re doing the same thing over and over again. For those who wants to learn something new like NodeJS, Redux or Elastic, this may not the place for you (of course there are some project...

    Advice to Management

    Should be more clear with their miners. Sorry employees! Every step which will be taken by the office should be discussed and rated within employees and directors. Should be more clear on job interview process about what the position is and which project you will be assigned for. So that you won’t end up losing talented employees in 6 months. For salaries, since this company’s only resources are its employees,...
