    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

    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.
