    Pros

    Friendsurance is a great place to work! The task field is varying and you feel both challenged and supported.
    The variety of nationalities gives a fantastic mixture of the team. The friendly atmosphere is kept by the social area where it is possible to play table tennis and kicker. Also sportcourses, yoga & teamevents brings a vivid but peaceful spirit into the office.

    Cons

    Until now, nothing to mention.

    I have been working at Friendsurance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a pretty cool place to work. There is a very flat hierarchy, and you can develop your own ideas within your daily tasks. The atmosphere is relaxed and there are plenty of opportunities to grow professionally. The physical environment is amazing, too. The brand new hq provide a very comfortable place: the equipment is great, free food and drinks are available all day long, and you can use the play area whenever you like.

    Cons

    You are working trying to disrupt the insurance industry. So, you know, if insurance is definitely not your thing, maybe you should reconsider... or maybe not. I think you should still give it a try.
