    I worked at Kelkoo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    international, young, and friendly environment
    possibility to learn a job from zero. And if you are a curious person, you can go and test things (if they don't affect much the budget)

    Cons

    pay is a bit below the market
    no much possibility to grow from a career perspective
    lack of communication between departments

    Advice to Management

    too much dependance form affiliates. They need to invest more on the brand if they want to stay in the market
    spend more money in innovation
    try to have a proper mission and vision
    try to diversify the business (for real!)

    I worked at Kelkoo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people, reasonable social events - they have cheese and biscuits in the office every Friday which is fun and gets people together

    Cons

    There's very little career progrssion, no investment in people or equipment and the senior managers and the CEO in particular can be very dismissive of any new ideas. The company is failing and losing money so they are always making redundancies sometimes getting rid of people of few weeks after they've joined.

    Advice to Management

    Probably need a new CEO
