    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Zalando full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - you will learn a lot about buying processes and how to operate in a big group

    Cons

    - fake start up - lots of promises that never come through - company culture going the wrong direction - lots of incompetent people. It's not about how hard you work, but how much butt you kiss

    I worked at Zalando for more than a year

    Pros

    International and young team. Free drinks and breakfast. 40% discount on Zalando website.

    Cons

    Very disorganised, uncompetent manager for my team, a lot of extra hours, never got the german classes I had the right to cause my manager didnt wanted to allow any of the team budget for it. However they are trying to be a "google" kind of company, the management and way of thinking is still very traditional german "the rules are the rules so dont question them". So much time lost in doing futilities cause of the lack of coordination among teams and hierachicaly. So called a tech-company, the softwares we use are Windows98 like cause developed in-house and made us loose so much time. Turnover is so high that everyone is new and trying to do things his own way which cause a kind of general chaos!
