No perspectives, awful place to work.

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Yerevan (Armenia)

ProsNothing outstanding at all, maybe furniture.
Really hard to remember something good about this company.
Maybe other headquarters are not such bad but the one where I've worked is really disappointing.
They hiring people with poor technical knowledge as trade off with salary, as a result it becomes pain to work there.

ConsExtremely bad managing layer
Not skilled employees
No attention to details
Lack of respect
Lack professionalism

Perspectives
Career growth

They should seriously think about what type of employees they are hiring

Advice to Senior ManagementHiring people with poor technical background in order to save a bit money will eventually bring the company to a crisis. They seriously should think about it. The employees inside the company soon will lose their motivation to work for two main reasons 1) it is hard to work with noobs 2) There is no feasible career growth.
So be wise and not miser.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
