    I have been working at Stylight full-time

    Pros

    Great growth potential
    Company focus on personal development
    Lots of team building activities
    A good balance of responsibility and freedom
    Passionate co-workers
    Young environment (even founders are very young)
    International work environment
    Beautiful office

    Cons

    The headquarters are in Munich and the distance can cause tension. Time differences can feel like it delays work and cultural differences can cause misunderstandings and confusion.

    Also, sometimes maybe the office is too young

    Pros

    The New York office is in a great location and is rather laid-back and diverse.

    Cons

    The entire NY team consists of nothing but underpaid interns who were sold a dream as far as what the job description said and what responsibilities ended up being. There was always a lot of confusion and lack of clarity regarding the future of this office and the editorial department itself, which DESPERATELY needs an experienced managing editor/eic to lead it. The management that opened this office lack the experience and skills to make it successful. There is no upward mobility—but when one intern did get hired full-time, she was fired the very next day. Despite attempts to keep this office in the loop with the headquarters in Munich, it often felt like the NY office was low on the totem pole of priority.

    Advice to Management

    The only way the NY office will survive is by restructuring and hiring people to lead it who actually know what they're doing. Otherwise just give it up.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Stylight (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Like any office or workplace, there is a hierarchy but at STYLIGHT you feel a part of the team, as opposed to an individual, lone worker.
    -Everyone is young and inspired, ready to work.
    -Dress code that allow you to express your personal style.
    -Open office space allows for easy and open communication.

    Cons

    -If you like firm, corporate structure this is not a place for you. There's a lot of change and growth that's constantly happening. You need an open mindset that's not focused on corporate protocol.
    -This is applicable to the job market as a whole, but the future in terms of career opportunities is unclear.

    Pros

    The team was very young and international with a lot of perks and after- work activities.

    Cons

    They rely heavily on interns, therefore it is very hard for interns to have an opportunity to get a job there.
