    Pros

    Good career opportunities if you take advantage of the chaos and take charge of your own career development. Opportunities to travel, work abroad or take responsibility in new positions as the company grows. Many excellent colleagues, both on a technical and on a personal level.

    Cons

    Compensation is closer to a startup than an international medium-sized business. Raises are small and hard to get, even when you take on over more demanding roles, since that often happens informally (so make sure you cut a good deal when signing). Little opportunities for further training that can be useful beyond Appway (only product-related trainings).
    The consolidation of internal processes is lagging behind company growth. This has led to tensions between product development and consulting services.

    Advice to Management

    Get expert coaching to cope with company growth and meet the needs of clients and employees. From the employees perspective, HR management (beyond recruitment) is a big pain point.

    Pros

    Flexible working arrangement. Gives you the possibility to travel and experience working on projects with big companies. Nice working environment with sites in Switzerland, US, and Singapore.

    Cons

    You develop using a proprietary language, that outside of the company will not be of enormous value to you. You don't receive training on the technologies underlying the platform and so are limited in your knowledge growth.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication with employees. The possibility for personal growth is lacking, perhaps you should introduce external training budget on the technologies being used within the product. The possibility to go to conferences would be useful too.
