    I worked at Rocket Internet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You learn to focus on outcomes from day 1. You learn to take responsibility and ownership of everything you do. You learn rapid execution and data driven business decision-making. You learn about the importance of learning! You will LEARN! I had a fantastic experience, worked for some great bosses.

    Cons

    High pressure, long hours. As Rocket is a very decentralised organisation and doesn't really have a unified culture a lot of your experience will depend on the quality of your direct boss. I was extremely lucky; I know not everyone is as lucky.
