      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

      Don't be fooled: toxic environment

      Pros

      Great office, and you might make some friends. Sometimes you feel like you're part of something, and the home office in munich looks really nice from afar.

      Cons

      - unstructured, often poor communication - revolves on an intern structure. upon interviewing and hiring, you're promised things that get you on board but then plans magically disappear and you're told that it's a startup so changes happen. but for example, one intern got hired one day and fired the next. - sometimes really cliquish. "management" often seems like they have no idea what they're doing and that they don't like the US office and just want to go back to Munich - it's hard to tell what the culture is supposed to be because they tell you it's a flat hierarchy and that it's cool, but then other management comes in and tells you otherwise

      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.

      Thank you very much for your honest feedback. We appreciate your input. We are aware that working at a startup can at times demand a lot of flexibility. There are new challenges that are continuously tackled in the process and it’s important for a company to adapt fast to new circumstances caused by the market. As a result business plans might at times be adapted and affect the current planning. We strive to be transparent about why changes happen and we are sorry if we didn’t convey this properly. We apologize that we did not meet expectations in regards to your work experience and appreciate your feedback so we can continuously working to optimize our work environment. We wish you all the best for your future career. Franziska
