    Pros

    -Friendly environment with a lot of young, international people -Great place to start your career and learn the best online marketing practices -Well known and successful company, people are proud of working there -zTalks, where they founders are talking and answering employees questions

    Cons

    -No real growth opportunities, promotions are based on how long you have worked in the company, not on your performance -Poor team lead/senior management level. They are more like supervisors than actual leads. Micro management and lack of experience in leading people, which is creating a lot of conflicts. -High turnover, the most talented people are leaving easily as they are not valued enough -High hierarchy, sometimes too "German" to be an truly international company -No mobile phones, even though the job included a lot of external calls -On a company-level flexible working hours, home office days and trainings were promoted, but in reality team leads were now always allowing them

    "Gain best-practice knowledge, but without corporate culture or appreciation"

    Pros

    Start if you want to learn about performance marketing, you'll get the best-practice schooling here. Large-scale budgets will give you quick learnings. Need to learn fast. You will most probably learn a lot and it looks good on your CV. 40% discount (used to be at least, they've removed a lot of benefits like Friends&Family discount of 20%). Used to have big parties (Summer and Christmas, but they removed one to save money). Super great for knowledge and get ahead of the pack when applying for other jobs (because you will).

    Cons

    Absolute lack of corporate culture, taking care of and value employees. High school environment, teenage behavior, low salaries, horrible Senior Mgmt, won't promote you even if you reach or exceeded all goals that were decided at annual review. Senior Mgmt safeguard their own position instead of encourage you by giving you a promotion. Some interns and employees got fired when home ill (for only a day), returned to the office and they had no job. Some got the notice of getting fired by the security guards at the entrance, when suddenly their key card didn't work on their last day of the 6-month trial period (without ever getting a notice from Mgmt beforehand). Bad introduction for new hires. Matrix organization that is extremely problematic. Too many in middle-mgmt, but they've scaled down on that now. Too much micro-mgmt. It varies a lot between the departments, some Heads are truly horrific and treat the employees insanely bad (crazy this haven't been on TV yet), others are real good but can't to much in the stiff organization. Grew too big too fast with CEO/CMO/COO etc. that are 28-30 years old who doesn't know about people management, they're entrepreneurs!
