      Best cultural fit for me

      7 Mar 2022 - Senior Account Manager in Amsterdam
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Culture is not a tick in the box but the owners actually believe the company has no reason to exist with the core values of the company. The technology is extremely strong. The market is the actual core business of our customers, hence you are very relevant to these customers.

      Cons

      The operational processes are a bit lagging the company growth, but that is being worked on.

      Pros

      Internal mobility is genuinely offered as a preference (I moved to a completely different team - from XO to Java) Great Benefits - Stock Grants, Company days off, Parental Leave, ect... Great work life balance Not against Work From Home (depends on the team)

      Cons

      Proprietary software XO feeling like learning the basics again but at a much slower pace than you'd like. Very slow development of simple features due to XO.

      Great place to work but not flexible with remote working

      23 Oct 2022 - Software Engineering Manager in Dublin, Dublin
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great culture and great people, it’s very easy to make friends and have fun while getting work done. Lots of internal opportunities and great stock options.

      Cons

      Remote working policy is inconsistent with favouritism at play. Budgeting issues after covid have left little room for travel or team building, something that was core to workday pre pandemic. Long standing employees are paid less than new joiners.
