    I worked at Projectplace full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great software! Swedish HQ. Salary decent, yet nothing to write home about. Frankfurt Office (shared office though)

    Cons

    Where to start. If you want to understand a sales organisation, look at their turnover and attrition rate over time.

    The sales management at Projectplace in Germany is regularly churning employees and its not hard to see why. If you're currently thinking about joining the company, take the time to browse through LinkedIn to look for ex-employees, there's a never-ending list of people who have all worked at the company and have left within only a short timeframe. The only people staying here are management.

    I've worked at this place, it was a major mistake. The incompetence of sales management in Germany is hard to beat and not only in technical or professional skills but also on a personal level.

    Everywhere you ask, everyone only rolls their eyes at the German sales org.

    What to expect?

    1. Bullying is commonly used to pressure people into working hard, only for the best deals to then being shifted away from you and towards the manager herself. Makes management look great indeed and leaves you with no commission whatsoever.

    2. Racist attitude. On multiple occasions, the management ranted of people from Turkish or Eastern European descent. It's embarrassing, to say the least.

    3. Nepotism. Nothing to add here, people getting hired based on friendship rather than on professional merit.

    Overall a clear advice for anyone thinking of joining. Don't, there plenty of decent companies who value their employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Projectplace (Bengaluru (India)).

    Interview

    One phone interview about basics of web development. Only initial screening.
    2 to 3 rounds of technical interview on DS/Algos, Python, JS if you know. But language is not a big brier.
    Some questions to understand if he is good fit in the company culture.
    Interaction with prospective team if offer is made.
    Final Salary negotiations.

    Interview Questions

    • What is a singleton design pattern and how do you implement it.   Answer Question
    • Why do you want to work with the company and what are your passions   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They have very deep pockets. So try to start the negotiation with a bigger number. Try to get promises made about benefits and other salary related stuff in writing or email to be very sure.
