      Pros

      Nice office, very friendly coworkers

      Cons

      Huge workload, no one can make any decision, teams always try to push decision-making to other teams with no result. Management is not empowered. Many coworkers are overworked, frustrated and tired.

      Pros

      Well-organized company with strong values and company culture, and a dedicated management team.

      Cons

      Going full-remote without clear boundaries on the working hours resulted in less consideration of employes' work-life balance.

      Great coworkers, questionnable management

      Pros

      - Incredibly smart and caring people. Employees are very devoted to the success of the company. You will find inspiration in others. - Salaries a bit above market for the company size. - Exciting time for the company - Great product

      Cons

      - A great amount of politics and leaders backstabbing each other. - Employees are simply resources that are being pushed for more and more for output. No work-life balance, no care about mental health. - Lots of great people in Marketing, Product and Dev left in 2020 (including 4 at VP level). That was a sign that there was something inherently wrong but nothing was done to course correct.

      Not as it seems - Be Careful

      Pros

      Hardworking co-workers that are skilled and top in the industry.

      Cons

      Toxic environment. The message from the CEO that is shared publicly is not how the CEO leads behind closed doors. SmartRecruiters needs to practice what it preaches as an HR Technology Company that is trying to set the example globally. Leadership is not aligned with strategy locally or globally. If you challenge, you are conveniently replaced. Contributions made are quickly forgotten as strategy is constantly changing. Global is not supported the same way that San Francisco is. SmartRecruiters has created an amazing image of company culture and support. It is sad that this is not the internal experience and management can’t be trusted. Each team is out to protect their own people at the cost of other teams and customer impact.
