    I worked at GetYourGuide

    Pros

    In reality, they are unreliable.

    Cons

    These are slippery people who have no regard for the "ethics" they pretend to on their site. Beware. Be realistic. New business with an uncertain business model and young founders with no respect for people or the law.

    Advice to Management

    Personal responsibility is the hallmark of a good organisation - something that Get Your Guide are not!

    I have been working at GetYourGuide

    Pros

    As a freelancer, I can say I had and have a positive experience working with GYG. Payments always made on time and clear every month. Committment and quality of my work are always recognized, especially with extra tasks assignments if needed. Communication is great with my department manager. Friendly environment and atmosphere.

    Cons

    No cons experienced for my personal position.

    I worked at GetYourGuide

    Pros

    Even after leaving GYG I still consider it the best company I have ever worked for. Best thing about it? The people. They put a lot of effort into finding the right people for the company and that results into a really good work environment. Sure, it might be annoying to go through a really long hiring process, but they do it to make sure that the people who join are truly a good culture fit and on which you can always...

    Cons

    Like every start up, its sometimes not that organized and some bad choices get made, but in general I never had a lot of complaints about it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at GetYourGuide full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Young co-workers, friendly management team, opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Inconsistent and sometimes wacky management decisions, frequent dismissal, big turnover, low salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Management team should stop focusing on acquiring new staff and working towards retaining efficient team members. Good people stay, when they feel valued.

    Pros

    Work and life balance is good. People are friendly and culture is really diverse here. It is easy to give options. It is very fun to help the company to get to the next level.

    Cons

    There's more meetings than the necessary. Quality of software is getting better (which is great), but there's still some way to go.

    Advice to Management

    Take care to not sacrifice quality over deadlines.
