    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible working hours / homeoffice International atmosphere Open to chose any technology

    Cons

    Not clear responsibility of tasks and people In some departments not good communication even there are some not collaborative and arrogant people Lots of teams which leads to talk with lots of people from different teams. Sometimes it's frustrating as a software engineer to waste so many work hour in slow communication.

    Awesome place to work, lots of talent and interesting problems

    Nov 3, 2017 - Senior Data Scientist in Dublin, Dublin
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good work life balance and great opportunities for professional development and growth. A lot of freedom in the technologies you use, provided they are fit for purpose. You are part of the full product life cycle, so you have a feeling of ownership, and you get to work in very interesting and state of the art problems. One of the strongest Data Science tech companies in Dublin. There are a lot of opportunites to learn new cool things and to upskill (they provide trainings both for soft and hard skills very often). Flexible working hours and possibility to work from home when needed. You get to work with really smart people, and the office environment is very friendly. Good pension scheme and health insurance provided. Totally recommend working here.

    Cons

    Missing some of the perks from other big tech competitors, such no lunch/dinner provided onsite, no gym.

    Great CV Benefit and Awesome company

    Apr 18, 2017 - Photographer/Retoucher (Content Creation) in Berlin

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Fresh teams of fulltime and also freelance - Big kitchen, fruits and enough supplies - Great location and easy to get to, a lot of shops at Ostbahnhof around - normally working hours finish on time - Great and interesting development of the company - Beneficial company for your CV internationally (moved to the UK now as a German and it makes new opportunities possible through CV experience) - some monetary development as well as flexibility in switching roles (when trained) - great team management and very consequent - they value your performance and match it with your missing rate - if you did really well you won't have a lot of problems -> so keep focusing on great work. If you're ill, you're ill, don't worry and try to put zalando on your priority list because it's your fulltime employment - cool events throughout the year - awesome staff discount and sample sales - multicultural which is great and helps to connect with people from all over the globe

    Cons

    - development could be more frequent / bigger changes / extra projects for everyone and not just the person that gets picked 3 times in a row etc - workload sometimes a bit crazy but still manageable if you work hard, but some people struggle and I would balance it all a bit more
