    Pros

    In my ~800k town it is a best company if you're looking for a stable engineering job:
     - administrators really invest into office environment and atmosphere
     - good work/life balance, you can almost every-time agree with you manager if you need a day-off or some specific hours off
     - very challenging: sometimes you feel like project future right in you hands
     - ability to travel abroad if you are lucky with visa
     - gym and yoga right in the office

    Cons

    - The biggest problem is if you're already a seasoned pro there is no room for growth unless you consider relocation to US
    - While company welcomes abroad business trips, the only destination is US
    - Inconsistent work of sales department: sometimes we have projects we cannot stuff, sometimes there is a long bench

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Enhance sales
    - Switch from bodyshop to project oriented company

    I have been working at Grid Dynamics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Our engineering team was grown from talented engineers and now they are experienced engineers with the strongest expertise in the bleeding-edge technology stack: Java / Java EE, Solr/Lucene, Coherence, Hadoop, Hybris, ATG, etc. They are interested in new technologies, they are speakers on conferences, meetups, active in open-source community. I think there is no challenging technical task, which could be left unsolvable with this team.

    Cons

    Grid Dynamics works with e-Commerce clients and always offers challenging and technical tasks and interesting job. You could boost your expertise here and have a lot of fun. But sometimes there are quite periods of boring routine. Nevertheless our life is like zebra: white and black stripes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Grid Dynamics Intl company management always have the clearest understanding of short-term goals, directions and solutions for business growth. But it would be also helpful to convey understanding for long-term perspectives as well.
