    Pros

    -good pay, if negotiated

    the management is very uncooperative and seeks to maximise the work

    Cons

    the management does not encourage ...no benefits for the probation period..no support form the management..nobody knows you...nobody wants employees benefit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start taking interest ion your employees, start giving benefits from the first day..spend less on conferences and more on employees

    Former Employee - Senior Developer in Prague (Czech Republic)

    I worked at Adastra

    Pros

    The salary could be better then when working for a company directly.
    They are able to sell you for a higher price.

    Cons

    The buyers are usually clueless how to make software.
    For example, they assume that programmers are interchangeable.
    The work may make less sense to you if you see that the customer prefers a lot of features over usability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is just a business, right?
