    I worked at Scout24 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Big company with good benefits, good work/life ratio, and good colleagues can still be found (but rare).

    Cons

    - Very slow desition making process - The "tech" leads are afraid of changes and most of the time preferred to only talk, but never take the responsibility and do - Product teams are stuck with features which are not defined by "data-driven" approach, but more "VP-said" approach - Mismanagement and poor communication have led to multiple disasters and at least 2 product development teams have fully resigned -... "We are an international company", doesn't really work as the preferred communication language is still German and international people most of the time just left out of "German" discussions

    I worked at Scout24 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free fruits and coffee. close to center office location

    Cons

    too much to list. Incredible how this company still operates. Spent 1 year at the Munich office and was surprised everyday how people are competitive, rude and ignorant. only few people know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    change your HR - talent management department. They have no idea how to recruit and keep the best talent

    Pros

    - Nice colleagues - Good transport connection

    Cons

    - Unhealthy atmosphere. Lost of trustworthy between managers and teams. - Big turnover. Good people are leaving because unprofessional and arrogant management. - HR and C level doesn't care what is happening in segments, how layers below them ruined everything. - If you are a good professional, run away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees. Your leads of the teams and segments are not skilled at all for the challenges company faces now.
