    I have been working at Glispa full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Friendly atmosphere and camaraderie among highly skilled professionals with great work ethic that care for their craft - Freedom to use the latest and greatest technologies to tackle technically challenging problems - Mostly flat structure with not much politics, at least within the Athens office (less so in the company as a whole) - Central easily accessible location, flexible schedule, low pressure environment...

    Cons

    - Several large strategy and management changes over the years (restructures, acquisitions, etc), leading to uncertaintly, lack of focus and low morale - Occasional, if not frequent, friction among teams in remote locations, "us vs them" mentality and toxicity - Non-trivial amounts of technical debt, mostly due to inherited codebases from remote teams & acquisitions - The company has slowly drifted away from...

    I worked at Glispa

    Pros

    gispa has a highly diverse team and stellar, focused management. If you thrive in a high growth environment and a place that honors multiple nationalities, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Global offices with HQ in Berlin, therefore fiscally conservative.

    Advice to Management

    "Americanize" benefits program.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Glispa full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Decent company benefits - Central location

    Cons

    - Overall ambience of the office is doing down, so is revenue. - Management team and managers are useless. There is a board located in Isreal where most of important decisions are made. Managers in Berlin offices are not more than their puppets. Shame on them - Fundamentally, products are trash. Some uneducated clients are putting some money on this product after advanced clients already all left.

    Advice to Management

    Think it out loud again if you can cally ourselves 'management team' when you have absolutely no power to make decisions.
