    I have been working at FlixBus full-time for more 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 !

    It's a company that grew from startup to European leader in a couple of months only. The work environment is great. Employees are in overall young. In this company you will receive support to develop your ideas and take responsibilities.
