    Pros

    Note the review pertains only to the company's office in Berlin, Germany Things that used to define the company: - Colleagues with enthusiasm and high level of skills - An open and relaxed culture where you always feel welcome - A flat hierarchy where you are valued as a person and the skills you bring - Actively supporting open-source projects Things that still are in place - Regular social... activities and events - Flexible working hours, albeit with time-sheet registration

    Cons

    Note the review pertains only to the company's office in Berlin, Germany - Corporate culture where you as an employee feel more like a sheep. - Strict hierarchies and top-down management make communication and decision processes achingly slow. - The wish to have "numbers" for everything is enforced by micro-management through cumbersome IT systems. - Mediocre salary - Few benefits besides salary -... Dlang is a nice language with many advantages over C++. However one should consider that the community is small and very few companies use it. Thus moving into Dlang could affect future career opportunities negatively. - Developing new projects in Dlang is low priority which could lead to disappointment if the reason for applying is a deep interest in the language. - Though the high number of open positions might imply that the company is expanding, the reality is that the company is experiencing an employee exodus and management un-/intentionally is ignoring this and the reasons why.

    Advice to Management

    The decision to move, what was previously known as Sociomantic labs, in a corporate direction is fait accompli. The implications of this are listed in the Cons section. I hope that management would allow themselves to reflect on the course which has been set before their Berlin office hits an iceberg.
