    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

    I worked at Stylight

    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.

    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

    Advice to Management

    this office structure doesn't seem to be good for the long term. At least treat us fashion interns well, especially if HQ claims that content is important to the site. Maybe have someone who knows what they're doing come on board.

    - great people - great office - great events - fantastic spirit and environment (e.g. often people stay longer playing games, have a beer or simply chatting)

    Cons

    Munich is not the cheapest place to live. (however it's totally worth it)
