    Pros

    -Lot of responsibility early on -Generous with team events -Nice colleagues

    Cons

    -The office where I was located was very cramped with no AC which made it hard to function during hot summer days -Management was not the strongest in terms of team leading abilities, although I felt supported when needed -I didn't work long enough to have my yearly review but from what I heard from colleagues is that it is unfair and that people get held back from progressing in case colleague(does not need to be in a managerial position) rates you in an unfavorable manner.

    Overall really great place to work, company is progressive and looks after employees

    Pros

    Overall company looks out for employees and built a relaxed atmosphere, and plenty of social events to make you feel welcomed. Lots of room for promotion, i was promoted 3 times in 3 years, they reward you for hard work and are quite clear about steps needed to take to get there. Very competitive pay for company in Berlin and for job role.

    Cons

    Very fast paced - I liked that about the company, but some do not. Always changing and adapting, so sometimes overall strategies could be confusing, have to keep up with the company and be open to lots of change.
