    I worked at HitFox Group full-time

    Pros

    They TRY to make your time in the office seem more pleasant by hiring a lot of really great people, providing snacks and drinks for when you inevitably can't take a lunch, and organizing lots of corporate events where booze flows freely to allow inter-company predation. You can move up quickly if you don't mind giving up your personal freedom, opinions, and social life (outside of work). If it seems everyone is friends...

    Cons

    They will pay you as little as they can afford to, all the while expecting you to put in the time and effort of someone earning a six-figure salary. Their main motivational tool is the continuous fear of termination. Forget about going food shopping, picking up packages, or having the energy to do anything mildly sociable during the week. With the business continuously changing and migrating to different markets, the...

    Hi! My name is Therese and I started as an intern at HitFox Group seven months ago. Before the minimum wages were introduced in Berlin, it was not uncommon that startups offered unpaid internships. HitFox internship salary was at the higher end, and with the new regulation it follows ...

    I worked at HitFox Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    unfortunately, I could only stay with the company for about 1 year as I had to move to another city for personal reasons. I really enjoyed my time at HitFox and would have stayed for longer (ever?) if I didn't have to move. It was a great atmosphere, I worked with lots of exceptional colleagues, and frequently got chances to go above and beyond myself.

    Cons

    sometimes things could be clearer but I guess that's normal if you are building up so many companies in so early phases. not everything can be completely organized in the first 6 months of a new company...

    Advice to Management

    open more offices :)

      Pros

      Good location and funding. Obviously highly successful from a business perspective.

      Cons

      I worked for Hitfox in the early times and found it to be an extremely hostile working environment, with bullying tactics used by upper management and blatant favouritism displayed. An example of such a tactic - the manager would email everybody about every employee, asking them to send them feedback about that person. Then the manager would approach people and tell them that people are saying negative things about...

      Advice to Management

      Pay attention to the feedback and fix the work culture. It is common knowledge/gossip amongst the entire Berlin startup scene that HitFox group routinely sexually harasses women and the culture is completely toxic for any "genuine" people that unfortunately find themselves working amongst the nest of vipers that make up the company's management.

      I worked at HitFox Group

      Pros

      - Well-located offices in central Berlin - Hot industries: Fintech, Ad tech, Gaming...etc - International environment and offices - Lots of parties

      Cons

      - Very unprofessionally run: Upper management hire their friends, buy personal items (clothing) and expense it, already rich from selling their shares at earlier rounds. Couldn't care less about employees. - Shares options are a scam - Don't take them! - Team is not experienced and not at all technical, you will learn more at real tech companies

      Advice to Management

      - Give more power to the HR teams, they still report to and fear the management
