    I have been working at Endava full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, nice people and office, good salaries.

    Cons

    Lack of interesting projects, unclear commitments/expectations for the client, difficult to create a career path.

    Advice to Management

    Should work harder on creating teams, people are not connected between them and this harms the work they do. Less emphasis on certain individuals, try to look from the outside at the people you are surrounded by.

    Pros

    - nice environment - plenty of courses and training's - paid certificates - nice office - nice opportunities to move up the corporate ladder

    Cons

    - some unpleasant projects people don't want to be part of, and Endava would be a great deal better without those - few implications from LM, People Managers and Product Managers into projects and team dynamics

    Advice to Management

    Deal with conflicts when they arise before it's too late. Build teams, not individuals. Grow talents and not comedians or smooth talkers.

    I have been working at Endava full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture, the people and the opportunity to grow. Fast pace, Agile, flexible, values driven. Oh, did I mention the people!?

    Cons

    Can be a bit confusing at first as it's so different from most companies. Understanding that no one is going to tell you exactly what to do or how to do something is fantastic, but means a fairly steep learning curve.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the culture as we grow - it's really special

    I worked at Endava full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - few people you can rely on - career growth - company location

    Cons

    - bad management - poor communication with employees - open space is not a benefit !!! (see poor communication) - NO exit interview when leave the company (in my case) - no one was interesed when I left the company - no contra offer or any question - almost everyone pretends to be happy; always wearing a fake smile (e.g. management people) - very small increase of salary (compared with other companies)

    Advice to Management

    More focus on employees needs!!!

    Pros

    Good location Interesting atmosphere and view

    Cons

    Lots of Juniors Benefits are very POOR: sports and medical package is the most poor in the Cluj market. The outsourcing done is low level . There is no transparency in the business. They are trying to sell people with skills that don't match the requests. The pressure is big from the clients and they are demanding(i guess because of the slow quality received) There are weird people around the office that are behaving very out of line.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of having loads of soft skill trainings you should switch to technical ones because there is a lack of knowledge . Be open to feedback and suggestions.

    Pros

    Company that values it's workers and the job they do. In Moldova, this is the single best place to start a career and to learn to write good software and pick-up the best practices in industry. As an outsource company - it works with really big clients, which is a big plus. The office is also one of the nicest I've seen.

    Cons

    Salary is relatively ok, much higher in other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Give higher salaries and don't save on hardware for developers, they need amazing tools to do an amazing job!
