I have been working at Kainos full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
The company treat staff incredibly well - free healthcare, Christmas and Summer events, team nights, free fruit out and an effort to create an enjoyable work culture. If you desire them, the opportunities are there to work with some up to date technologies, delivered in an AGILE way with some very large public sector customers. Pretty much everybody in the company is universally helpful and the Managing Director is affable and appears to be able to remember everyone in the company by name - no mean feat when there are well over 600 people now! The company is growing and has been for the last few years, and it's an exciting time.Cons
A lot of the interesting projects require travel for the Belfast staff, where much of the company are located. It's generally continous travel at 4 days a week as well, which can put a strain on family life. Also, the opportunities for advancement and working with the latest and greatest technology very much depends on the business unit you work for.Advice to ManagementAdvice

I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Kainos.Interview Details
Sent the CV via their own recruitment system, then got a phone call arranging the telephone technical interview.
The technical interview took about 30-40 minutes. Just talking in the phone.
The questions were quite basic, like what's the differences between interface and abstract class. There were also some questions about the development procedure, rapid development, continuous integration.Interview Questions
