Current Employee - Team Leader in Moscow (Russia)

I have been working at Yandex full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Great people to work together on projects and communicate with
- Many interesting projects and products
- Good work conditions, flexible work schedule

Cons

- Lack of good first and middle-level management comparing to American and European companies
- Not so strong engineering culture (NIH, processes)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Yandex is not startup anymore and it might benefit from more organized management especially at middle-level (structured goals that come from the highest to lowest level)
- Technical specialists need a career path without a need to go into management roles

    I worked at Yandex as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Interesting tasks, good work conditions, experienced colleagues, hugest Russian IT company, lots of educational programs, not a lot of outsourse to deal with (as far as I know), nice technologies used

    Cons

    Not high salaries, too huge to feel like in a startup, no free lunches, you can't get the hardware you want (you have to make some reasoning for that). But the cons are minor comparing to the other Russian companies (and even most of international)
