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

    Pros

    Knowing the city, the location is nice. It is far away form the fuss and traffic of the standard places of doing business in Bucharest. There are some benefits that can be considered as a pro, and i will state them here just for reference, as they are for a long time the norm in the industry for Romania: gym discounts, free fruit, free coffee, free refreshments, work from home (used to be unlimited, now cut down to 10...

    Cons

    There are several things that need to be dais here. Even though Holacracy is supposed to be practiced, the management system can be considered as being Communism. It is supposed to flatten down the management, have the power shared among all employees, and allow all to have a voice. This sound nice, but in reality there is a lot of shadow management being done. For the masses it is preached a good life, with all sharing...

    Advice to Management

    As already mentioned, you should start to follow what you preach. One of the old Romanian sayings perfectly describes what you are doing: "do what the preacher says, not what the preacher does". This might go well in some places, but it does not go well in business where people are constantly searching for examples, leaders and mentors. Drop the shadow-management and micro-management and actually let people use the...

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

    Pros

    - Holocracy (If you don't like it, you don't understand it) - Relaxed work environment - Autonomy - Bonus.ly (Netcentric is the only company in Romania that uses this system) - Mostly nice colleagues

    Cons

    - Indifference and disrespect from some colleagues regarding the office (this has nothing to do with the company per say)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! I, for one, understand how much you all commit to the welfare of the employees and I truly appreciate you.

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

    Pros

    Total flexibility and trust is shared between the employees. It is refreshing to see that the "Manager" figure is taken out of equation, everyone has a voice and a role in the company. Every employee also is a value to a company not a number on the payroll. 30 days of holidays does a sweet job as well. It is great to know that you have 6 weeks of holiday a year. Your battery can be recharge regularly. And needless to...

    Cons

    This is a changing environment and sometime the adapting phase is very short, you just need to jump right in.

    Advice to Management

    Extend a bonusly allowance
