    Pros

    Amazing company, innovating, at the right industry and at a consistent growth trajectory. Maintains its startup culture with resources of a profitable established business. This gives endless possibilities for innovation and welcomes new ideas.

    Great environment and culture, the team is well-bonded and really supportive one to another. Should you get stuck in a project you can always count on your team as many will rush to your aid.

    Really enjoyed company drinks and lunch/dinner days where we each share startup war stories. Also loved the opportunity for occasional trips from the London Office to the Athens office and vice versa.

    Some members of the team are here for 7-8 years, testament of what this company really is about especially in such a fast moving startup world.

    As an employee expect a lot of freedom and responsibility from day one. If you have an idea for a cool project expect that you will have the chance to own and execute it.

    Lots of room to grow in a growing and maturing company with multiple interesting projects.

    Cons

    Nothing really. The company is in the right track and the team is growing and getting better over time

    Advice to Management

    You are on the right path, keep going and stay focused to the core values of the company

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

    Pros

    I worked for PPH for a couple of years in Customer Service and CEO always listened to ideas. Everyone who worked there fe.t part of the family and gave 110%. Great innovative company and not afraid to jump outside the box.

    Cons

    Was quite intense at times and sometimes miracles where expected, but the company was just finding its feet. There was also public shows of disapproval if a staff member messed up then a public dressing down was often given but this was remedied :-)

    Advice to Management

    Relax a little....staff are only human. Keep doing what you are doing!

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

    Pros

    1. Great colleagues to work with.
    2. Interesting product.

    Cons

    1. CEO. If you want to work with a maniac CEO you can add it under your Pros list. No integrity, no communication and treats you like you are not important. Horrible management from his end, neither should I say, NO people skills what so ever. He makes most people quit their jobs due to his bipolar character and is not interested in your ideas or opinions. He is affecting most of his employees, without knowing their actual job, doesn't pay overtime and doesn't respect you at all. Should be removed from this chair, immediately.

    2. Salary. Employees in this company do MORE than they are entitled to. They stay overtime, every day, and they do not get paid for it what so ever.

    3. HR. Unable to bring a company together. No events, no christmas gift and no goal. Company is running on itself organising small events between colleagues to get to know each other. No intention of making to like the company what so ever.

    4. No career opportunities and no raises. Ever. You can work for them, do more than expected, but you shall NEVER get a 'Good Job!' or even a tiny raise. Very bad.

    5. Most people that have left this company have quit because of the pressure. Company is NOT trying to built a trusted team and renews their employees every year. Unbelievable.

    Advice to Management

    Change of their mentality, change of their goals and achievements, and most of all. Change of CEO ownership.

    Pros

    There really are absolutely none

    Cons

    Just a front for fraudsters and scammers, no checks, just enabling people to ripped off. No corporate conscience whatsoever. Totally lost the plot from start up as the cash appeared.

    What's the point?
