      Pros

      One of the big pros is the fast paced working environment.

      Cons

      A lot of the times there are unrealistic work expectations. There is no additional pay for overtime work which is fairly regularly.

      Business oriented and Top down

      Sep 15, 2020 - Engineering Manager in Berlin
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good working environment, and working from home during COVID, we hope they will keep it, but they don't dare to make that commitment, management is just looking what others do like always.

      Cons

      Current CTO is very American (ex Amazon) style, and top down (he will say things very politely, but you need to understand that it is an order, and never challenge it). All management is aligning with that and being top down. Values, principles, and culture is applied and interpreted always tu support what management wants and not really as it was meant. The rest is very German: bureaucratic and inflexible.
