Companies in Europe vs Companies in the US. A provocative thread based on my own observations πŸ‘‡

Company in the US: "This role is remote" 🟒 Company in Europe: "This role is remote, but I'm assuming you can visit the office every couple weeks or so" πŸ”΄
Company in the US: "We work mostly async, except for a few occasional meetings that might be needed" 🟒 Company in Europe: "This role is flexible, but you're expected to join our daily standup at 9am our time, and a few other recurring meetings" πŸ”΄
Company in the US: "Our budget is X. Is that within your ballpark? When can we get started?" 🟒 Company in Europe: "We'll send you a proposal via email for your review, and we can discuss it over a meeting in a few days." πŸ”΄
Company in the US: "Our team is spread around the world, you'll fit right in." 🟒 Company in Europe: "Everyone in our team speaks English. But just int case, do you speak Spanish/German/etc?" πŸ”΄
Company in the US: "These are the challenges that we need your help with. You're expected to deliver X, Y and Z." 🟒 Company in Europe: "We have a very fast paced environment. Let's have a meeting to discuss priorities. There's so much going on." πŸ”΄
Company in the US: "" 🟒 Company in Europe: "Our team is like a family. You should join us for some beers in the office." πŸ”΄
For context: - I'm a proud European living in Europe. Born and raised in πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Ή. - I've been working remotely for the last 6 years, mostly with startups in the US. - These observations are from tech startups trying to hire me for CTO roles (either full time or fractional)
TL;DR: - European companies are lagging behind US in remote adoption. - Talking about money is taboo in Europe, but very open in the US. - European company cultures rely more on social interactions than US. - European companies prefer hiring people who speak local language.
