Adequate

Senior SAS Programmer (Current Employee)
Moscow (Russia)

ProsFair line to middle management, solid on-the-job training, interesting projects, global reach, blue chip clients, good team climate, adequate compensation

ConsTop management and Sales agree on unachievable contract terms, bad resource planning leads to staff burn-out, outdated technology, too little investment in toolchain development, too sparse performance evaluation, strategic partnership put too much strain

Advice to Senior ManagementInvolve functional and team leads in bid defense and contract negotiation, plan resourcing in advance, invest in technology in-house and outsourcing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
