    I worked at FlixBus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - product with great customer value
    - advanced technical project
    - good for beginning of career - you can learn a lot at the company
    - friendly coworkers

    Cons

    - micromanagement
    - incompetent managers
    - company is Agile oriented - "they hire more agile coaches than developers"
    - 30% of your work time you will spend on agile ceremonies and 20% on meetings
    - Agile coaches have more powers in any kind of questions than developer does
    - kitchen duty(sometimes goes crazy). flixbus does not have an office manager therefore - you would need to: clean a coffee machine, clean a kitchen, load/realod dishwasher, bring towels, sugar, coffee, tea from storage to kitchen - and you can't avoid it
    - low salary
    - bad office

    Advice to Management

    stop hiring a lot of managers - especially agile coaches - it does not help
    start care about your developers - they are doing your product
    hire an office manager, developer should not clean a kitchen - he should write code

    I have been working at FlixBus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's an ALL IN OR NOTHING company, which its a great mindset to come to work to every morning, and the best part, people do believe it !
    There is no such thing as 'we cannot do it' or 'its too hard', instead what we hear is 'We will figure it out'.
    Plus, the team is great, everybody is an expert on their field but are super open to receive constructive feedback !

    Cons

    We are getting bigger and bigger, we need a bigger office SOON !

    Pros

    Great people, real teamwork, autonomy and a strong entrepreneurial mindset. FlixBus teams share a great vision for the future of city to city travel, for everyone. The company is growing quickly and allow its employee to grow quickly as well. Also, amazing offices and perks.

    Cons

    Not everyone loves free bus tickets, for someone looking for nice perks an airline might be a better start.

    Advice to Management

    Do your best to keep the pioneer culture, and continue not to take yourself to seriously.
