What’s your ideal working space?

Each company has their own unique team culture, workflow, and working environment. Each European country has their own tech scene, ICT history, and common working habits. But in the tech hubs all over Europe, you’ll find – high standard of living, strong tech & startup networks, high salaries for talents, focus on innovation and growth.

Work with passionate people.

The companies are rather diversified because there are a lot of expats already working in Europe. English as a working language is also quite common, so there is no language barrier because most people speak English very well.

Horizontal work culture enables fast career advancement.

The main motivator and attraction of Europe’s tech hubs is its compact organizational hierarchy, which enables you to climb up the career ladder more rapidly. Employees are given more opportunities to lead, and staff members’ contributions are noticed and rewarded.

The attitude towards employees is really good. Employers focus on making their people happy and motivated – they know the value of their people. Employees are guided to take breaks, relax and have a healthy work-home balance.

A company with a team-first corporate culture makes employees’ happiness a top priority. Frequent team outings, opportunities to provide meaningful feedback, and flexibility to accommodate employees’ family-lives are common.

Team-oriented companies hire for culture fit first – skills and experience second. Why? Because they know happy employees make for happier customers.

Signs of a team-first company culture:

  • Employees are friends with people in other departments
  • The team regularly socializes outside of work
  • The company receives thoughtful feedback from employees in surveys
  • Teams are more or less autonomous and people take pride in their work

Companies with elite cultures are often out to change the world by untested means.

An elite corporate culture hires only the best because it’s always pushing the envelope and needs employees to not merely keep up, but lead the way. Suitable candidates need to be confident, capable, competitive, innovative and sometimes daring. The result? Fast growth and making big splashes in the market.

Signs of a elite company culture:

  • Employees aren’t afraid to question things that could be improved
  • Employees make work their top priority, often working long hours
  • Top talent moves up the ranks quickly
  • The company has many highly qualified job applicants to choose from

Horizontal corporate culture is common among startups because it makes for a collaborative, everyone-pitch-in mindset. These typically younger companies have a product or service they’re striving to provide, yet are more flexible and able to change based on market research or customer feedback.

Titles don’t mean much in horizontal cultures, where communication between the CEO and office assistant typically happens through conversations across the office rather than via email.

Signs of a horizontal company culture:

  • Teammates discuss new product ideas in the break room
  • Everybody does a little bit of everything
  • The CEO makes their own coffee
  • The company still has to prove their product’s worth to critics

Companies with conventional culture have clearly defined hierarchies and are often traditional companies with large IT departments. Any dress code at all is indicative of a more traditional culture, as are a numbers-focused approach and risk-averse decision making.

The customer, while crucial, is not necessarily always right—the bottom line takes precedence. In recent years, these companies have seen a major shift in how they operate. That’s a direct result of the digital age, which has brought about new forms of communication through social media and software as a service (SaaS). Working in a company with a more traditional culture can be a big opportunity for learning and growth, as long as it’s not resisted by the management.

Signs of a horizontal company culture:

  • There are strict guidelines for most departments and roles
  • People in different departments generally don’t interact
  • Major decisions are left up to the CEO
  • The company corners the market

Uncertainty is the definitive trait of a transitional culture. Mergers, acquisitions or sudden changes in the market can all contribute to a progressive culture. But it’s not all doom and gloom. A major transition can also be a great chance to get clear on the company’s shifted goals or mission and answer employees’ most pressing questions.

Change can be scary, but it can also be good, and smart employees know this. They embrace change and see it as an opportunity to make improvements and try out new ideas.

Signs of a progressive company culture:

  • Employees talk openly about the competition and possible buyouts
  • The company has a high turnover rate
  • Most of the company funds come from advertisers, grants or investors
  • Changes in the market have a high impact on revenue
