    Pros

    1. 28 days holidays,
    2. company phone,
    3. Very young and nice crowd in the IRISH office, not so friendly in the other offices.

    Cons

    1. terrible senior management.
    2. Software was written VERY badly making it almost impossible to do your job in an efficient manner.
    3. Lied to in interview process about "up to date" technologies they used. none were used.
    4. Felt i have regressed as a developer as a result of working here.
    5. Irish "management" (ie Head of Irish office) is useless, no understanding of IT or business, or anything really.
    6. Way too much arrogance from management, considering the state of the code.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn how to have respect for your employees. It was shown many occasion how clueless you were in how to manage people, let alone your own finances.
