    I worked at Qelp part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable colleagues from whom you can learn a lot. Vouchers for lunch, good office location. International multi-cultural environment.

    Cons

    The company promotes openness as one of the core values while there's no real openness between management and employees, it doesn't go both ways: problems are often being hidden under the carpet rather than recognised and addressed. Critique is not welcome and one will not get positive evaluation or review if he points out negative things, even if he delivers good results. Hard work and extra effort is expected but... not awarded, the pay is below market average. The approach to work is more deadline-driven rather than quality-driven.

    Advice to Management

    Read and ponder on what I wrote in the cons. Invest in people and products, not sales. Quality product and quality service will sell itself.

    I worked at Qelp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - the working environment is very international, nice and quiet; - position is by far less stressful than many other jobs in the same paycheck category; - for the tech nerds: you get to play with the latest gadgets earlier than the market; - travelling costs are reimbursed to a certain limit; - lunch vouchers are given each day you work.

    Cons

    - the position promotes robotic work, and new ideas or thinking out-of-the-box practices are shunned, being obedient is far more valuable to the company. There is no reward for working efficiently, and adding the previous point to this, this job will be frustrating for many people; - consequently, promotions are given seemingly at random, not based on performance/efficiency, but rather on friendships and how much... one is willing to suck up to the boss; - albeit seeing improvement lately, there were almost no team-building activities within the office, let alone with the other offices.

    Advice to Management

    Operating in such a fast moving business environment, I think efficiency, hard work and innovation should be valued more than promoting a sheepie behavior. If conflicting ideas result in a clash, you should look closer at the added value of each sides, rather than taking the easy way out: getting rid of the side you like less and and sweep it under the rug just so the office is "quiet" and "familial".

    A empresa dá oportunidades para profissionais um pouco menos experientes

    Se não é capaz de reproduzir resultados, é um sinal de que foi sorte, não habilidade.

    I have been working at Qelp

    Pros

    Oportunidade de crescimento se você realmente demonstrar interesse em melhorar no seu trabalho. Hà possibilidade de migrar de área também se quiser

    Cons

    As iniciativas podem demorar para ser tomadas depois de identificadas, tanto para o bem quanto para o mal. Uma área não ganha tanto quanto deveria para a importância da função
