    I have been working at Fluenta full-time

    Pros

    Exciting time to be involved with a company executing a serious plan for growth opening new markets, in new countries.

    Cons

    Only that some of the work should have started 5 years ago

    Advice to Management

    Keep on investing and the results will follow

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - flat hierarchy
    - opportunities to take ownership
    - 10% flexible benefits (e.g. for pension or health insurance)
    - nice location
    - modern, open space office

    Cons

    - too much focus on processes and checklists means that the fun entrepreneurial spirit has been lost
    - heads-down atmosphere, no encouragement to interact with colleagues and no response by management when social activities are suggested - alright for lone wolves who do not mind speaking a word with anybody all day
    - bullish behaviour is tolerated by management even when pointed out repeatedly due to clear favouritism

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the drawing board and think about who Fluenta want to be. The company has changed dramatically over the last two years and is not a nice place to work anymore.

    I worked at Fluenta full-time

    Pros

    I guess you could call it 'dynamic' but that's just a different word for chaotic

    Cons

    Driven by a bewildering lack of understanding of development and engineering by the owner. I suspect it is in a terminal death spiral now and it won't be long until the Cambridge office is closed, and the long-term survival of Fluenta other than as a brand name is uncertain.
