    Pros

    The new office is Dog-friendly

    Cons

    The company pays a very low salary even after a huge growth They do not care about the stress levels or the well being of the employees, even during COVID If you are looking for a company that does many shady things, especially to overqualified expatriates, this is the company No one stays in the company as they do not want people to stay for long - employee turn over is very low Previous work experience and education is disregarded

    I worked at Emma full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    nice office. convenient location. relaxed environment.

    Cons

    there are a lot of students and interns who are happy to work with low pay and want to show their passion regardless of their capacity or ability, which does not help much for real work. Team leaders are very busy with office politics or trying to show off their ideas (only ideas and actions are being taken by cheap labor interns). There are frequent changes in org chart according to office politics. For those who look for a start-up company, this is certainly not a start-up. If you don't speak German and are not good at politics, avoid...

    Pros

    fast-paced unlimited growth opportunities unlimited learning opportunities ownership

    Cons

    lack of some processes and guidance at times, but this shouldn't be a problem for self-driven and ambitious team members Not the highest salaries (pretty competitive for start ups) yet if you are here for the salary then you have the wrong objectives

    I have been working at Emma full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - The learning curve is very steep - It’s not just possible but very much encouraged to be entrepreneurial and change things (quite different from what I have seen/heard from most corporate environments) - The team is young and passionate and cares about what they do - Days are not predictable = days are not boring! Extreme growth requires high degree of flexibility

    Cons

    Not for people who are looking for a routine-heavy 9-5 job

    Dear team member, thank you for taking the time to write a review. Great to hear that you appreciate the opportunity to learn really fast and take ownership at Emma as much as we do. But we also take your feedback very seriously. It is very important to us to always question the status quo and to keep improving.
