The startup scene in Berlin: showing fake KPIs to VC, getting money from VC, buy Facebook Ads (95% of the marketing jobs in Berlin), showing more KPIs (people who click to your ads, eventually sign up but not using your stuff in any way). At the end, living the hard and real life in London comes less expensive than living the fake dream of Berlin.

I'm glad to read here more about the "startup scene" crap in Berlin.

Taken from this article: travelsofadam.com/2015/05/berlin-startup-scene/.

But it’s my belief that a lot of startups, including those “cool” ones regularly making headlines in Berlin, are doing things at the expense of workers rights. My generation maybe has more opportunities for new things, for better things—hell, even for a better life. But at what cost?

Seriously, Berlin is one of the worst spots to work in tech in the world. I'm happy this is being talked more because the city is attracting talented people and making unfulfillable promises. I won't be surprised that many of those guys will be talking here in the months and years to come.

Among all the startups that were founded here, the most successful always, ALWAYS leave the city and move either to London, NY or Silicon Valley - San Francisco. That's the proof of how much founders believe in the city.

Is it just me or is it plain impossible to make friends in that city? I've never been so lonely in my life, people here aren't interested in creating friendships - I mean even the bare minimal social interaction is missing (people stare angrily instead of smiling, customer service doesn't exist, people bump into you violently and don't bother to say sorry...). I am getting so depressed Iddon't know what to go, where to go to meet decent people that aren't drunk or junkies.
I'm preparing my escape, it should happen in September but in the meantime I'm going completely nuts :(

Same here, with only one difference, I'm introvert and for me is perfectly fine to live in the big city, without having any friends. The same period ( last year ) I was really depressed like you, bought a dog and guess what, depression gone :) btw I'm also preparing my escape, just to finish studying in this shithole.

The secret is to find Non Germans to make friends with. And Germans that only live there Seasonally. Those that have to live there full time...are just as Miserable as you. #balance

The problem being that even foreigners here are annoying, they can't stop talking about how "great" and "open" Berlin is. They can't smell the poop that's right down their feet. It became impossible to find expats who aren't into the "party scene" of Berlin.

Oh dear god. "German government offering how to "FLIRT" with Germans for new Asylum seekers. I would have thought it should be the other way around. Asylum seeker says to Berlin woman." Hello..You look lovely". Berlin womans response."Ah..fuck you.I am no object! Now I must be off to cut myself.I have boarder line personality disorder, therapy and yoga in an hour you filthy auslander."...And as the Berlin fairy tale goes.NOBODY lives happily ever after.

They are not asylum seekers but welfare opportunists who DO see women as objects. These men should go back and fight for their country and not shop around for best EU welfare packages and sexually harass european women.
We don't need more economic migrants with poor skill set in a city like Berlin with already high poverty and low employment opportunities. One of the reasons Berlin is so dirty is because of these migrants. Go to Wedding and you will see migrants dumping everything on the streets and in parks.

People who jump to insult others as nazis and fasicsts are hypocrites. A rational debate about improtant issues is important for peace and welfare of society.
Far left is as bad as far right when it comes to supressing free speech.
This is why Berlin sucks. It is filled of 2 extremes and illegal migrants.
I am a legal migrant who is not on welfare. My family died in WWII. I do not want more of hateful islam that killed my classmates in an explosion in a club or supermarket. I do not want live in fear just so that the left has its multicultural utopia.

It is scary to think what would happen to Europe and especially central Europe in the near future. The government just disregarded and disrespected the will of its citizens. No country can handle an influx of migrants in a short period of time without facing political, economical and most importantly social repercussions. What Germany owes to the middle eastern refugees morally speaking to justify this irrational generosity? Berlin is going to get even worse now. Most of these migrants will end up here and the far right groups will go completely nuts.

I am talking from experience here. They will pay you less than what they are offering now... much less (not counting taxes and whatnot). And since you're there already you will have no other choice to sign the contract and Berlin will have screwed you once again. IF it is really good money and you cannot make the same figure elsewhere, then make sure to sign the contract BEFORE you move to the city, in that way they won't be able to "change their minds". I've been played dirty by German and non-German companies in Berlin so I would suggest you to be always suspicious of their offers.

German citizens who pay almost half of their pay check to support these "refugees" and other muslim families with 5-10 children cannot be considered greedy. Crazy right wingers are over reacting as always but it is not a reason to call them greedy.

I know how this seemingly unrelated news to Berlin keep getting closer and closer to Germany; first Greece, Austria, then Poland. Until one day news will be that a far right party will have won the elections and new and radical policies will be underway. These European far-right parties make look Trump tame and not xenophobic. (I dislike Trump a lot by the way)

Oh god, I just went back into the city by tube after many years avoidingit. How can people bear it? It's a great system, but it stinks and every carriage seems to have at least one odourous oddball, and every journey practically guarantees a visit from a passing "musician". I wish the stations had ticket barriers
