Overall, the working environment is something you do not find everywhere.
I've been in several jobs where I went to work stressed out, came back from work stressed out and dreaded waking up in the morning to go to another day of stress; here, at GameDuell, it's a pleasure to wake up and know I'm going somewhere where I can be productive, learn something new and be happy doing it and not feel like life is slowly leaving my body while I count the minutes until it's time to go home.
Personally, I don't have any things to complain about.
I have heard from colleagues the pay could be better, but, for me, it's the biggest salary I've earned since I moved to Germany.
We can all use more money, of course, but I am content with my salary, and I am sufficiently happy with how this job makes me feel mentally and physically.
Advice to Management
So far, you're doing a great job, but I think we need to be more open to change, so that we may adapt for an ever aging customer base.
In the long run, those that adapt survive and reap the benefits.
Look towards the future with hope and eagerness.
