    I have been working at Zalando full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are great teams and people to learn from, leadership is very open in terms of sharing information and that makes us really feel a part of Zalando, office is great and home office aid too. They care about mental health and help with initiatives, departments. Worker representatives are great if there are doubts or a tricky situation.

    Cons

    [specific situation with one of the teams] Hiring process was not transparent, there was no plan/direction/feedback regarding my work, gaslight experience, gender biased, a lot of extra hours without recognition, no analytics structure or mindset, not open to change.

    In general people are with an open mindset, innovative, ready to step out and contribute for the change. The company encourages its employees to ask like an owner, drive the change and speak up. Fully remote work benefits, flexibility and support from the company, especially during the pandemic.

    Cons

    Salary recognition not the best one, but compensated with the rest.
