    Pros

    Exceptional team spirit. Great, jung management! They are always willing to help and support the whole team and each person individually. Well organized onboarding process and development program, super equipped office, fully covered health insurance from day 1!

    Cons

    Inflexible working hours. The whole office starts at the same time, which is great for the team spirit, but can be a little annoying when you plan your day to day work and are trying to match your schedule to your customers needs and convenience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the effort regarding the team spirit: Playing well with others and the transparency.
    Maybe put a little more trust in each individual employee. You train everybody so well, that there is absolutely no reason to micromanage! Relax, you are doing a great job as leaders already!!
