    I have been working at XING AG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work life balance, and the feeling that the company motto "For a better working life" is really applied. Actually people management is generally cared with parallel feedback channels about your managers directly to HR.

    It is a company looking looking at the future and trying to be there. In general it is a good company to work in, despite the room for improvement.

    Cons

    The company culture is nice, but it is not encourage a friendship and community sentiment among the employees. This is something that is appreciated since some I got to meet some of my best friends as colleagues first.

    There is some lack of professionalism that is being tried to be solved by hiring new people with high profiles and great experience and skills. However there are many things that could be done much better and the changes and reaction towards wrong decisions are taking maybe more than they should.

    Technically (what is my area of competence) the company could be much more advanced. It is somehow stuck 10 years ago in technology. Sharing files in folders and sending them around by email? Seriously? Where are the cloud services?

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing as you are, since I honestly think you're steering the company in the right direction, but there should be more efficient channels of vertical communication, especially bottom up, not only top down, so you can get fresh ideas and insights about what is happening in the guts of your company.

    Strived to gain economic growth without respecting that XING should strive to be a high quality professional network too
