    I worked at Rocket Internet

    Pros

    Very quick growth for the venture meant very exciting working environment. Personally, I was given a lot of responsibility.

    Cons

    Long hours are, especially in early stage startups, very likely. Apart from that, if you know what to expect, there are not many disadvantages.

    Advice to Management

    None, had a great experience with the different ventures that I was part of. Communication and hiring between different ventures could be improved, which would benefit all.

    I worked at Rocket Internet

    Pros

    You get to put on many hats and try new things. For an undergraduate, it's a good learning opportunity. You get to take full ownership in projects and lead discussions. As they expect you finish the task assigned to you, you will learn how to properly manage your time wisely and prioritise your work.

    Cons

    Long working hours, high expectations of you to work long hours. Not for the weak hearted. If you're in a startup, don't expect your life to be 9am to 5pm. OT is expected and required. No mentorship will be provided. If they give you a task, you're expected to complete it by hook or by crook.
