kununu at NewCo: What It’s Really Like to Work at Some of the Top Boston Companies


Have you ever started a new job only to regret your decision almost immediately?

Many job seekers believe their new job will be a dream come true and turn a blind eye to a company’s potential red flags in anticipation of starting something fresh and exciting. Sadly, we see more and more that these dreams quickly turn into nightmares.

kununu’s founders, Martin and Mark Poreda, experienced what we call the dreaded “first-day surprise” themselves, and after only a couple of weeks at new jobs both brothers quit and set out to tackle the challenge of a non-transparent job market. They realized there needed to be a way for both job seekers and employers to ensure they were making the right decisions for their well-being and long-term success. That’s how kununu was born.

kununu, now a global employer review and rating platform, has spent over a decade promoting honesty and transparency in workplaces throughout Europe. Now, we’re bringing it to Boston to make sure job seekers like you have #noregrets about accepting a position

Whether you’re just starting the search for that first real job after graduation or striking out on a new career path, you’ve likely struggled with knowing whether you’re making the right choices when selecting where to apply and when to commit to a company.

Since opening our Boston office in 2016, we’ve been on a mission to break down barriers in the US workplace by propelling meaningful conversations between employers and job seekers by:

● Giving talented candidates a way to discover organizations that align with their wants/needs in a job

● Empowering job seekers to review and rank the benefits that matter most to them

● Creating an outlet where candidates can ask questions directly to potential employers through our new Q&A feature

So why should you add kununu to your NewCo schedule?

This is kununu’s first year as a NewCo host, and we’re excited to join over 60 companies on NewCo’s mission to bring the public inside the walls of the world’s most promising and innovative companies.

Transparency in the workplace drives everything we do. As a NewCo 2018 attendee visiting kununu, you’ll get an inside perspective at how local companies and popular industries stack up against each other when it comes to offering the benefits workers actually care about.

Together, we’ll investigate the modern work landscape and dive deep into how features like employee wellness programs, internal feedback, and office perks compel people to choose one job offer over another.

If you’re looking to take an active role in your career search and learn the truth about what it’s really like to work at some of the top companies in Boston, come spend an hour with us at our session April 11th at 4:30 p.m on the third floor of 34 Farnsworth Street.
