Every company is different. Especially start-ups and big companies. If you compare the work environment in a start-up with the work environment in a bigger company, you will definitely find some differences. In order to help you with your career planning, we would like to show you the main differences.
A start-up typically grows faster than an established business, which can be quite intense for the employees. Moreover, working in a start-up environment means that you constantly need to keep track of the goals and strengthen the organisation and structures. Tractive has grown fast during the last years. The structures within the company are developing constantly, which opens up new opportunities for the employees, e.g. own areas of responsibility and personal development.
Since start-ups develop constantly, new challenges occur every day. Start-ups often invent new technology and develop new business models. Established companies are more likely to move steadily to protect their business. The key to a good start-up is focusing on solutions rather than on problems. At Tractive we also know, that everybody makes mistakes sometimes. The important thing is to learn from these mistakes and improve.At Tractive we also know, that everybody makes mistakes sometimes!

Self-reflexion, constructive feedback and supporting each other helps us keep the learning-by-doing mentality strong.
Start-ups have a big advantage over larger companies when it comes to adaptability. Changing structures and strategies is much more difficult for a big company as they have more layers of management and much longer approval processes. A start-up can react quickly to changing market conditions due to less rigid structures. Tractive uses this advantage and reacts quickly to customer queries and needs.
Since employees join the company gradually and structures are strengthened over time, start-ups usually have flat hierarchies. The same goes for Tractive. Open communication, improvement suggestions and new ideas are welcome anytime.
