    Pros

    International company. You can meet many foreigners there. Quite stable employer.

    Cons

    Almost any benefits (+5days of vacation only). Very few opportunities to get some payed education. After few years more workload and no better salary.

    Advice to Management

    Do not allow to use tools which haven't been tested in production. Do not pretend that you are interested in employee's problems if it is not true and you do not want to help to solve the issue.
