How is management perceived at Emma?

Pros

- Steep learning curve - Being part of a fast-growing, global company - A nice new office and some other benefits

Cons

- Hire and fire culture. Pressure is extremely high. If you don't perform or if you are not quick enough, they will find a way to kick you out. Many people left because of the high stress level and being close to a burnout. - They will expect you to do plenty of extra hours without any kind of compensation. Salary is below average or average (depends on the hierarchical level). - No structure, very instable processes, quite messy. - No appreciation (they say they don't have time for that) - The behaviour of the top management is very questionable, manipulative, aggressive and toxic. I have heard plenty of racist and sexist comments from the top management during my time at Emma. Everyone knows it, no one acts because they are afraid they will get in trouble.

The behaviour of the top management is very questionable, manipulative, aggressive and toxic.

Are employees at Emma generally happy and/or satisfied?

Pros

- great office space - CEOs and most of the upper management have excellent leading abilities - good to get a first look into a Start-up

Cons

- No subsidized lunch: There is no cafeteria in place and the company doesn't offer any food stamps. - Interns are hired to perform manual work and repetitive tasks which limit learning immensely after a few weeks. I basically handled the majority of the day-to-day tasks of the whole team while my team members picked out the exciting tasks and started to work on them. - Interns aren't considered a "real" team member and therefore not involved in any major team decision and can't even participate in all team meetings. - a lot of extra work without any compensation: On average I had to work around 9.5 hours but didn't receive any compensation for my overtime. The worst part for me was that my team leader took the amount of overtime as granted and didn't show any appreciation for my commitment. - I witnessed that the quality of experience really depends on your team at Emma. If you start in a team with a good chemistry between the team members and a good team leader, you will have a decent time at Emma. In my case, I came into a team which didn't have any chemistry and everyone was super stressed. To relieve their stress my full time team members and my team leader started to pick on me whenever I did a small mistake or took too long for a task. -> It was definitely by far the worst experience I had compared to my other internships. In conclusion, I wouldn't recommend doing an internship at Emma at all/ or at least not longer than 2 months since the tasks get really repetitive and there is no real value for you as an intern after a month. Moreover, I would inform myself carefully in which team Im going start since otherwise your internship could become an absolute nightmare.
