    I worked at Trovit full-time

    Pros

    Perks: nice office, gym, snacks, team building events, and so on.

    Cons

    The CEO has surrounded himself with friends in the middle management who follow his orders as a sect obeys its leader. Some of them are not the sharpest tool in the shed, one wonders how they got to where they are. They pretend to be the coolest company in town, but far from reality. Having a gym doesn't make you one; taking care of your employees and implementing policies that actually help them does. No career plans, no professional development programs, no promotion policies. Men hold all positions of power: CEO, COO, CTO, Sales, Product, HR, Finance... so don't pretend to be the most inclusive company when there isn't a single woman in a leadership position. Enough of fake outrage about allegedly demeaning signs, and more self-awareness and action. Too much bureaucracy, even the smallest task involves a meeting and a never-ending email thread. Spoiler alert: This is Barcelona, not Silicon Valley. No need to use "agile", "brainstorm","team" or any other buzzword in every sentence in Spanish.

    I worked at Trovit full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cool office, perks such as private health insurance and restaurant card, free breakfasts, snacks and fun team retreats (at least in the past). Possibility to work with different markets. Nice colleagues.

    Cons

    The worst management I have ever encountered on my career path. Instead of motivating and inspiring they enjoy cutting your wings and making you feel not good enough. Constant micro-managing, plenty of useless and endless meetings, unprofessional behaviour of the managers. It sometimes felt like working against other teams instead of working together for the common cause.

    Pros

    - Interesting product - Great colleagues - Nice office

    Cons

    - Middle management is ruining it by being incapable. No transparency, no trust. Micromanaging. They are no leaders.
