Current Employee - Account Director
Current Employee - Account Director

Pros

- Most people are friendly and professional
- Atmosphere is generally good, unless an executive just crapped on you or your team
- Potential for professional growth
- Potential for international exposure

Cons

- Some senior people are extremely difficult to work with
- If you're not based in HQ (Athens, Greece), do not expect adequate support
- If you're not a management lackey, you're not going to last long

Advice to Management

It's time to take a long hard look at some of the executives and understand that not everyone can the move from start-up to company - delivering does not supersede people skills at all time, and the bottom line is not solely cash-based in a proper organisation!

    Keep the good ones by all means.

    I worked at Upstream full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a very fast paced company and that gives you the opportunity to work and be involved with many things. Nice office place (even some of the offices were a bit messy, due to the increase of headcount), very competent people working there, casual and friendly environment. Good salaries and benefits to most departments, comparing the Greece reality.

    Cons

    The working hours can be very long at times. The lack of transparency and communication of the strategy to the employees causes insecurity and lack of commitment. Too many organizational changes over the past 1+ year.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and close to the people. Seek for honest feedback and utilize it. You won't have commitment and loyalty otherwise.
