    I have been working at N26 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Small team in NYC working on bringing N26 to the US. Flat team structure (no bureaucracy or painful hierarchies). Open lines of communication and instant feedback loops. Everyone is extremely smart and driven towards a common goal, and we also enjoy each other's company both in and out of the office. There's also respect for having a life outside of work and a good sense of balance. Huge opportunity to take on as...

    Cons

    Coordination with Berlin can be difficult at times given time zones and hypergrowth there. Nonetheless, people always are willing to help out and make themselves available when needed. Small team size as of now means fewer hands to help with all that needs to get done. That said - plenty of opportunity for new joiners to take on key tasks and responsibilities as we continue to grow the team

    Pros

    + "Startup within a startup" - working for N26 in New York is a chance to work on building the product for the US market from the ground up within the environment of a larger, successful, well-respected, well-funded European startup + Fantastic colleagues both in NYC and Berlin + Super interesting work as new challenges and opportunities come up every day. No two days are the same and there are a lot of opportunities...

    Cons

    - A little disconnected from Berlin HQ, which is to be expected as the only remote office location currently, but everyone does their best to stay connected (work in progress)

    I have been working at N26 full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Diverse environment and very fun culture. Employees spend a lot of time together, and grab food and beers on Fridays - Every employee works on a fundamental project for the company, and is given full ownership - Modern technical stack, active efforts to deploy best practices and remove legacy code - Employees now have a sizeable personal development budget, which can be used to attend conferences, take classes, etc.

    Cons

    - A year ago, the company was rather unstructured and disorganized due to the high pressure environment and mostly junior employees. While this has since improved greatly with some more process and time taken to scope projects, the company is at times still prone to this.

    Advice to Management

    Take some more time to really think about what features mean the most to the user base.

    I have been working at N26 full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    -International team. -Random benefits (drinks, food) -compensation is improving over the last time.

    Cons

    -Very political and a leak of communication. -Random and unprofessional employees in key positions. -Unclear and unrealistic company goals. -No space for compliance improvements. -strong "see nothing - hear nothing - say nothing" menatality in management -major parts of the company seem to have an exaggerated opinion of N26

    Advice to Management

    For management: leave your rose-tinted glasses aside! Where is your vision gone? For product and its employees: grows is nothing without retention!

    Cons

    - Meaningless values Simplicity, Integrity, Drive and Excellence — it doesn’t matter if these are the values of a bank or a parking meter, they are meaningless. A fundamental understanding and appreciation of work values does not exist hence it is not promoted. The apathetic leads and managers have absolutely no idea what they are doing. In this company nobody really cares about empowering others to achieve great results,...
