    I have been working at Starmind full-time

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to meet a number of different Starmind employees in various roles. Each of my interviews offered a little more insight into Starmind and what it is like to work for them. The interview process was very transparent. Another great aspect of the interview process was getting to learn a lot about what the company does, how the culture is, and what Starmind’s goals are.

    Cons

    There are no cons to report.

    I worked at Starmind full-time

    Pros

    The product is wonderful, the company has great vision from the founder

    Cons

    I don't think the sales leadership has idea what they are doing, completely ineffectual. New growth outside of the Europe is being set up to fail from the start.

    I have been working at Starmind part-time for less than a year

    Young, creative, motivated and multinational team in three countries (CH, GER & USA) Regular team events Flexible working hours Possibility to work from home Modern office space in CH Large lounge and roof terrace with a view of Lake Zurich Regular updates (weekly and monthly) Great product

    Cons

    Some processes and responsibilities still unclear, but they are working on it. In the past, there was sometimes a very pronounced hierarchical thinking (which is currently changing for the better).

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

    Pros

    One of the best atmosphere, everything is done to make us happy. People are very human, want (Sincerely, I suppose) to be your friend.

    Cons

    Hierarchy is the issue. First, only managers voices are respected. If you are not one of them, you are just allowed to do the job they give you, nobody cares about your thoughts, ideas, or even your expericence Then, some managers have no skills for this position. They are disorganized, unable to delegate, or to have a clear overview on things. Finally, some of them don't hesitate to deal projects like toys: They take it because it is fun, but leave it after a while, once they have played enough and are bored. As a consequence, several projects are unfinished, full of bugs

    Cons

    I've no cons so far.
