    Pros

    A great company with a clear strategy of how to continue developing within the AdTech industry and becoming a power-house and full-stack solution.

    Cons

    The company is extremely global with offices around the world, something that requires a lot of flexibility and adjustment to working with people from different cultures, backgrounds and time-zones. If this is something you don't "attract" to, Glispa might not be the right place for you.

    Pros

    It's a high-paced global company, with good benefits and young employees

    Cons

    Everything is always changing and hidden from employees until it already happened (or after), even if it's related to the employee herself. You cannot believe anything you've been told by anyone, all promises can be broken in a second, no explanations and effective immediately, so never get your hopes up. Management is unprofessional, acts out of fear, very fickle and do not care for their employees. Some departments...

    I worked at Glispa full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very good HR support to get you started in Germany. Drinks on Friday and good company parties. German breakfast is provided on Monday mornings.

    Cons

    Processes in finance are a joke. If you ever worked with SAP don't come to this company. They have 4 or 5 systems that you work with. Everything is very manual literally moving invoices from one tray to another. Weird working hours - 9am to 6pm with an hour lunch. Quite often you are required to stay longer hours. Not the best atmosphere in the company. This company might only be good for the very start of your career.

      Pros

      and you don't have high expectations in staying long it's a perfect start in the world of ad management in Berlin.

      Cons

      ... but if you want to do serious business don't expect too much support.

      Advice to Management

      Be honest to people, be fair and respect different views.

      Pros

      Great infrastructure. Lovely support from HR and IT service team. Well-known in the industry. Solid international working environment. Number and sale-driven.

      Cons

      Insecure young senior and management team. Lots of hierarchy and office politics. Important decisions and changes are made without taking employees into consideration.

      Advice to Management

      Value the people. Let's aim to nurture growth rather than burning bridges - the industry is really small.

      I worked at Glispa full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Somehow this organisation seems to attract really great people!

      Cons

      Everything is just chaos behind the scenes. Joining in an intro level you won't realise all issues at first, but you will feel tensions after just a few months. If you understand what management goes through you understand that there are no coherence, vision or strategy. Just look at how many C-Levels either got fired, left or picked up by others in the industry.

      Advice to Management

      Get expert help from outside, stop running your business like a kindergarten and appoint a board of directors to supervise and advice an externally appointed CEO.
