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

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, good salary, high level of the autonomy and good atmosphere in the team. In my opinion it’s one of the best places to work in London.

    Cons

    Compensation level highly depends on the monthly performance, so you need to maintain a fast pace at your work. At the same time it keeps the whole team focused.

    Pros

    • Modernistic company – always up-to-date with the trends and technology, culturally-rich and open environment, you are not forced to stay in one place the whole day to work. • You are well-looked after – the perks are unparalleled: food of all sorts day in, day out, massages, health and wellbeing events, private medical and dental insurances, to name a few. You work hard, and you also get to play hard. We throw big parties to unwind and just enjoy everyone's company. • Growth – we are always encouraged to go to conferences around the globe, as well as trainings and workshops: all paid for. You just need to show your serious commitment and motivation to get the most out of it. We also share our extended knowledge throughout the whole team to maximise our know-how in the industry and support each other. • Supportive team – we are constantly growing as a team, and it is very much like having a big family where you spend majority of your life, which is just great. We do team building outings to relax and get to know each other better outside the office as well.

    Cons

    • Immensely fast-paced that sometimes you lack the time to properly explore some projects, though we do go back to them most of the time to constantly improve our work. • We have a pool of strong-minded individuals who are very tenacious with their ideas and opinions, which can cause friction most of the time. However, with enough evidence and arguments about your confidence with where you stand with your work, it is possible to get through to these people and meet each other halfway.

    Advice to Management

    I have been at Badoo for nearly 2 years now and I can say that it has improved massively, and it is now so different to how it was painted on really old reviews here. Keep on going, things are getting much better, and I appreciate how I am seeing more and more women in the company 💪

    I have been working at Badoo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I've never worked in this industry before so Badoo has been a change. It's an interesting industry and is very 'tech' based, so I have been enjoying it. I've been here for about 6 months! Badoo is very multi-cultural and it's probably the best place I've worked for several reasons. The talent here is incredible, we seem to have a really high bar, when it comes to hiring, so I can go to any colleague/team in another department and expect a good job/good answer. It can be really frustrating when this isn't the case. I've been in 7 companies previously in my full time roles, in different cities. Previous companies, I've been lucky to have a fruit bowl and cereal. Here we have 3 meals a day cooked by some good chefs, fully stocked fridges all day for whatever you want and parties etc. It's just really good, they really look after you. They even have a medicine cabinet and vitamins etc. That makes me laugh because I've never had that before, never heard of it actually. All our equipment like desks, chairs and computers are all top notch as well. Even though 500 people work here, you end up dealing with the CTO or CFO etc, no matter what you're level. It very much feels like a 'start-up' but it's actually a sizeable and quickly growing company. All senior staff are pretty much approachable and I've seen people get promoted here already etc, I've also seen people move departments if they've wanted to. Turnover seems very low to be honest, some people have left while I've been here but 90% of them had been here for 4+ years. I believe that's quite low for the tech industry! I genuinely enjoy working here and I think most people would. Salaries, bonuses and perks etc seem above average compared to most places and anyone else I know in other industries.

    Cons

    There's cons of working anywhere. Badoo is growing quickly and obviously there's the obvious growing pains of processes etc, but that's for each team to sort and it's the natural outcome of a growing company. Everyone is really pragmatic though and smart as I mentioned above, so things are always improving. It's certainly a 'fast-paced' place to work as we're trying to grow quickly and there's loads of smart people, that can take a short while to get used to if you're from slower industries, but it's not an issue. They just want results so they can continue growing. It's a good thing tbh!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, improve all departments equally and ensure everyone is looked after (which you do anyway)!

    I worked at Badoo full-time

    Pros

    Badoo really is a great place to work! Not only do you receive amazing perks such as free (gourmet) food everyday breakfast, lunch, dinner, and massages at your desk (the list goes on) but the opportunity to work in such an exciting and fun environment. Everybody at Badoo shares the same hard working values if you can handle pressure and are passionate about what you can do for Badoo you will thrive! The senior management are always giving opportunities to all of the staff giving you the ability to sometimes share your ideas with the CEO himself which makes you feel extremely valued within the company. I have never worked in a company where I have seen the CEO pretty much every single day around the office with the different teams and in meetings! Badoo is full of huge personalities which makes it feel like one big family. My senior management was, of course, Russian, but it was so interesting being a part of the culture and learning new skills and attributes that I would now class as the best I have from them. They are always looking out for the best in you, pushing you to do better as they know that you can! You will never have to worry about how you will be rewarded at Badoo, not only are you looked after every single day but you are rewarded with probably the best parties that you will ever go too - and you get these monthly!!! Forget your average office parties with party rings and cocktail sausages!!!
