I have been working at Grid Dynamics full-time for less than a year

Pros

-Dynamic environment, new experiences and opportunities each day
-Genius-level engineering staff; amazing to learn from and work with
-New professional executive with experience and drive to take Grid to the next level
-Positive outlook for the future; between the market and our strategies, we will stay one step
 ahead of technology.
-Excellent health benefits and a company that really cares about you as a person and your
  professional development. Semi-annual review process is a priority with most reviews and
  meetings completed within the due date.
-Although we are over 350 people world-wide, In the US we have a nice family feel.

Cons

-As Grid is a major consultant in eCommerce, and has such talented engineers, we are
  extremely particular about hiring and can always use more amazing engineers! I will say,
  at least once we find the right person, we move fast!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Continue listening to our employees and shaping Grid into a mature eCommerce leader! Keeping the human element (care) while growing can be tough but hang in there and I am certain we will retain that wonderful sense of morale and family we currently have! Empower as many people as possible to care for our group, especially our talented engineers who make Grid what it is...a superior company to be part of!

    I have been working at Grid Dynamics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - great career perspectives in a growing company (management and administrative tracks)
    - good fraction of really smart engineers in all locations
    - persuading and charismatic leader

    Cons

    - not a good place for senior engineers oriented on technical growth
    - chaotic changes in directions
    - achievements are not evaluated properly
    - waste of resources on meaningless research/non-billable projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - define company core mission and stick to it
    - remove excessive levels of management, flattening the structure
    - take projects aligned to the core mission, stop doing work just for revenue
    - focus and invest in what makes sense for the company core mission, with research projects in particular
    - recruitment practices are what makes any company; and those need a lot of improvements, in US in particular
    - invest in marketing and sales

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
