    Former Employee - Software Developer in Saint Petersburg (Russia)

    I worked at Yandex full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Smart people, fast development, great products. Local search engine leader for a long time.

    Cons

    Salary is not aligned anyhow, but depends heavily on your conversation with manager. I worked for 3 months as intern and then converted into full time employee, but salary remained almost the same. After a while I got offer from other company which I liked much more anyway with double salary and happily left.

    The culture was fine, however if I compare to the next employer, it was sometimes too harsh. We tend to make fun of each other and behave aggressively, but it's more like a game, people did respect each other mostly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider fair salaries before people got offers from other companies. They might want to leave even if you are ready to match the offer.

    Also you might want to have some strict policy for manager-reportee relationships. There were cases when someone had surprisingly fast career grow, which could be a result of such a relationship. Even if it was not, such cases should be treated with as much care as possible, in order not to feed gossip of this kind.
