Amazing group of people to work with. Great product that customers love. Pays well.
Inconsistency in leadership and fierce competition in the market

There's a lot of passion and enthusiasm from Executive Leadership and all teams, it's the people that make it. Some great employee benefits.
High and unrealistic expectations and workload, poorly managed resources, resulting in a lack of work-life balance, poor well-being and staff leaving. Lack of clarity in terms of responsibilities so you end up taking on more than you should.2

Started well before Covid and went remote first at that time. With the right tools and a culture where people really matter, remote work is an absolute best
Requires a reset when not able to actually see colleagues for long periods of time

WFH, competitive pay, some great people.
Constant layoffs and reshuffling, no transparency from management, disjointed product, very questionable company decisions, no guidelines methodologies or best practices and execs who setout company values but don't follow them. Promotions mean a title change and more responsibility but no pay rise. A confused company that wants to be a fast growing start-up but is actually an aging, stagnant sinking ship.8

Competitive pay, innovative products, interesting industry, WFH, well constructed orientation sessions and onboarding put in place for new hires.
Fake woke corporate culture that pretends to care about employees, but at the end of the day, you’re really just a subordinate and number in the eyes of senior leadership. They over-hired a bunch of employees, and then suddenly, made a series of abrupt layoffs out of nowhere. A bit ironic with a company hence, the name “SmartRecruiters.”8

• Remote work • because most humans are decent and kind you will of course find nice coworkers here, too
Everything else! If you want a burnout within a year, this is your company. Hire & fire mentality, be prepared…it might happen to you when you aren’t expecting it It became more and more the „usual US centric, corporate tech company“. The don’t practice what they preach. That’s for sure. • The salary is average and the benefits are not competitive • Education & (career) development does only exist on paper • Lots of employee fluctuation • No stability, unrealistic timelines • No transparency16

Strong team spirit, great leadership, solid product
Stressful, long sales cycles can cause burnout
