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

    Pros

    Cool environment and amazing team for the first few months that I was there. Nice office. International vibe. It's a great place to kick off your career because you learn a lot from team mates and also by yourself. The small team structure and the hectic environment makes it complicated to learn from your manager.

    Cons

    Massive firing without previous notice. Half of the company was let go. No solid strategy. Felt like we were all doing things for the sake of doing something.
