Fuck-up is, first of all, an experience. Who never climbed, never fell.


The system of work allows everyone to offer an idea, implement it and be responsible for the results.


A silent fool is NOT considered wise. Open communication is the true value of Maklai.


Farewell, outdated forms of hierarchy and subordination. Long live the ease, openness and simplicity of communication.
