    I worked at Docler Holding full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting and highly complex global product that provides great learning opportunities and professional challenges. People and teams, especially the lower ranks are enthusiastic and fun to work with. Very energetic and fun people events. Great compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Blame oriented, toxic culture. I have seen the CEO yelling at and shaming entire teams for unavoidable failures several times. Criticism, even if it is constructive, is frowned upon by the higher ups. The owner is far away and busy with his other ventures, however he still micromanages a lot about the company from the development of core product features to probably selecting the kitchen equipment, just like in some good old startup days. The company itself is doing well, but constant failures in execution are unavoidable because strategy and tactics change at the whim of the owner every day. On the surface management is very polite, open to suggestions. However their hands are probably tied too - they have minimal authority to improve working conditions.

    I worked at Docler Holding full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    breakfast, location, events (if you are single), multicultural environment.

    Cons

    Blame driven company. Fake yearly performance goals, no one from who I know got an salery raise having a good results. They give a fake hope and use it. If you are developer - just forget about any promotions. CTO may sending offensive private messages. If you are not Hungarian - you are trash. They make a beautiful picture for media, but it is rotten inside.

    I worked at Docler Holding full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Been in the company for a year and this are my pros since the first interaction with the recruiter: - they have an idea of how to relocate someone - they offer a relocation package ( ofc is not enough to cover everything, probably just the plane tickets for the entire family ) -they give nice gifts for various parties of the year ( best ones are for Christmas) -they bring in the company well prepared people -in the year that I worked for them they had a really good bonus scheme

    Cons

    Unfortunately this part is a bigger one even they have an interesting IT product: - Biggest problem is that they fire people without any prior feedback or giving them prior reasons, you get a letter at the end of the workday and you go home ...( like in the movies, which is not really pleasant if you have a family with kids or you moved from your home country by yourself) -the CEO does not have short objectives or vision for the company or the products , that is why sometimes things are closed from a day to another and people fired. -the CEO speaks only Hungarian -the owner of the company dictates most of the things that the company does by " heart" or mood and not based on data or market trends - there are a lot of people working within the company that don't want to be there but they will stay and make a toxic environment for others - The English level of the majority of employees is not at a good level thus is really hard to communicate with them - Everyone is concentrated and grouped in small "churches" with the scope of taking care by themselves and not get fired .... by any means -Anyone can be an expert in another domain from what he/she is hired for ... -People complaining more and putting the blame on someone else more are considered good employees -Senior BAs are considered people that are in the company for a long time and not people with experience and knowladge of their profession -PMs are changed too quickly, the lifespan of a PM being ~<10months -People get fired from a day to another ... without reasons - On some floors it really smells bad and the CO2 levels are dangerous in LU - The Work/Life Balance is not existing as most of the time there are spending much time in the office -They invest a lot of money in a PR dept that shows that people are happy and having fun rather than actually make people happy and having fun -The people in the PR dept are really aggressive in taking photos and videos of other employees during parties, working hours, lunch .
