    I worked at DKMS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a great, emotive cause that you can get behind.

    Cons

    Senior management are liars and middle management can get away with pinning failures on you and lying to you. There's a lack of transparency in their processes, it trails behind in innovation compared to other charities and they have unrealistic expectations on their progression.

    I worked at DKMS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Location -Benefits (although enrollment programs are a bit disorganized) -Work-life balance -Fun employee events One of the best workplace camaraderies I've ever experienced. There's a huge sense of community, and a lot of open-minded people who genuinely want to see you succeed and will help you get there. Not necessarily a lot of tools or resources available, but there are many opportunities to grow within the company. Most of the people genuinely care about the mission and what they do, and it made working here feel whole.

    Cons

    Huge disconnect between leadership and everyone else. There is very little to no communication, and everyone is almost always left out of the loop until big actions are taken or announcements are made. Way too much control and micromanaging from the German team that disrupts the process and any progress made.
