    I have been working at Glispa

    Pros

    International environment, professionalism, nice parties and the people (most of them already left), really cool office and a good learning experience

    Cons

    Management continuously changing, really bad turnover rate, unequal opportunities some might enjoy a lot of travels whereas some don't get anything. It all depends on who your manager is or which dept you're working for. A lot of top down decisions are hurting the people and there is a lot of unease.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency. It's not only about recruiting but also ensuring employee happiness in the long run, talk to your people.

    I have been working at Glispa full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The HR department is really great There are wonderful people working and doing a great job The parties are nice The tech stack is modern and there is not much legacy software to deal with anymore

    Cons

    The company can be divided in two sides: business and tech. For the business department everything looks great. Not so much for the tech department The management always change their mind about everything. Months are spent developing features that are going to be eventually discarded. There is a very clear hierarchy, and your opinions only count if you have been in the company for a long time. Different than the business...

    Advice to Management

    Have an open communication with everyone, don't listen only to the "leaders". Acknowledge people that have been doing great work and they will feel more inclined to continue doing it. Ignore it and the good employees will continue to leave the company.

    I have been working at Glispa full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice office, very professional and helpful HR

    Cons

    1. IT department and Business department are not aligned with the same goals 2. There is no transparent training budget. You need to ask a favor from the company to go to the course or to the conference. 3. There is no definition of career/development path. 4. Most important!!! There is no recognition to the IT specialists for doing a highly professional job

    Advice to Management

    Take a personal responsibility for the technical projects faults and many good engineers drop out last time as a result of the lack of basic management skills.
