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

    Pros

    Depends on the project you get in. Sometimes you need to do not what you were hired for.

    Cons

    Depends on the project you get in. There are a lot of really interesting projects with high load systems requiring good skills which is great.
