    "full of children"

    I worked at Fyber full-time

    Pros

    no really a proper pro but got some good investors that helped cash flow. Good place for non experienced people, first level entry job.

    Cons

    as any other berlin based start up is full of non-professionla non-experienced employees. office is pretty much a kindergarten, underpaid non german employees and definitely overpaid german managers. Seems hierarchy is done based on your passport...
    Copy cut business model, do not join if you are an open minded person because you will pretty much see yourself duplicating whatsoever leading company has done. Couple of dinosaur employees as well, they have developed their career within the company, have no clue what goes on behind "Fyber wall"

    I worked at Fyber full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    During 2015 and 2017 while I worked as a full time employee in Berlin office, I had the chance to learn from my peers, to improve processes and to deliver results, in a genuine collaborative way.
    Unfortunately, in 2017 when co-founders left the company and the entire C-level had changed, being replaced by the Tel Aviv management, it had become more or less a power game and a very ego-driven culture. Unfortunately, this new leadership approach has not appreciated accordingly the strong HR team in Berlin, nor some of the highly experienced C-level people in Berlin.
    All of these circumstances, combined with a lack of awareness in terms of managing cultural differences, as well, led to many high performers resigning in the Berlin office and slowly to make the one-of-its-kind culture in Berlin office fade away.
    Other Pros:
    - a structured onboarding process
    - internal knowledge base and documentation
    - educational leave
    - flexible hours
    - work from home days
    - leadership and communication training
    - multicultural teams
    - an efficient IT Support team

    Cons

    Lack of trust in Berlin office's senior employees and leadership
    An increased level of office politics
    Overestimating some so-called senior leadership people in San Francisco office

    Advice to Management

    Assess, appreciate and reward accordingly the senior and experienced people you still have in Berlin office.

    I have been working at Fyber (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's fun to come to work where the people in the company are very caring and very professional.
    Fyber gives a lot of room for individual's personal development.
    There are a lot of possibilities in the company for promotions and also moving between departments. Something that is not obvious.
    I worked in many organizations and this is the most caring company I have seen.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change over the last year. Always changing is not something simple for an organization. But the management is very involved and tries to improve things and to made it for a better place.

    Pros

    - very nice and cooperative colleagues
    - cool benefits and good vibes in the office
    - interesting technologies to work with

    Cons

    -the Israeli mid-management is top-down and often not cooperative and respectful
    -not enough trust in the competences of employees (in Israel we know it better)

    Advice to Management

    treat people with respect and train your mid-management in Israel to understand that they are not better or more qualified than experts in Berlin. Trust your talents and learn to listen to the critical voices also! The CEO should show that bad management is not tolerated and has consequences!
