      A messy place

      Pros

      * People community are nice, friendly, and approachable * Flexible working hour, a lot of work freedom * Exposure to various aspects of the business. * Clear financial information, everyone knows how well the business is.

      Cons

      * Low salary, way below Frankfurt average. And it might not improve as they aggressively open new headquarters to get access to cheaper talents elsewhere in the world. Consequently, high turnover rate. The average tenure in Emma is 7 months. * Slow promotion process. Even though Emma claims to be a start-up, you can consider promotions to be as slow as in corporates. Probably in the past, many positions were vacant but now the hierarchy is full. * Huge workload and there are concerns about work-life balance as well as hire-fire practice. * Less and less candor in meetings. If you voice a new idea, you usually are the one to implement it. People then just play the game of "who speaks first". * Decision is made often with few people on the top so there is no such thing as " everybody is welcome to challenge existing ideas and voice their ideas". * Emma is aggressively expanding everything, so all facilities are very thin and every project is halfway done. Foundation of growth is as thin as spring ice. It is very messy at the end.

      Pros

      If you like the work hard/play hard culture, this place is for you

      Cons

      This company had so many concerning practices. It is a revolving door and employees come and go at a concerning rate. There is no work life balance, so be prepared to work 12 hour days and get horrified looks if you have anything else that is a priority in your life. Employees did not have any form of goals or objectives, so evaluations, raises and promotions were simply based on how people felt about you, not your measured performance. There is little to no discussion or investment in employees, their growth and development (besides them funding attendance of trainings). They say they value diversity, but don’t practice it internally. Only entry level is diverse, after that diversity reduces drastically with each level that goes up, leaving you with an all white, male, German speaking C level. Finally, this company does some ethically questionable things.
