    Pros

    The people are nice, funny, and understanding. I really had a good time working with them. In addition, it is a great working environment. The atmosphere compels you to work hard and put your best foot forward.

    Cons

    It was really difficult. The supervisors have are kind, but they have very high standard, which is a good thing, but it can be unrealistic and exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    I think management has done a good job, so far. However, they should be more considerate of the staff and take a their staff's conditions into account.

    Pros

    Sometimes working on interesting projects. Good place to learn if you are fresh from Uni. Flexible working hours, but only if you are a full time employee.

    Cons

    Not appreciating employees and their engagement. Extremely bad ratio in salaries vs how well an employee is performing. Highly talented people can have extremely low salaries who actually do the work, while some managers retain high salaries but don't bring any profit or new contracts to the company. HR policy in general is a disaster. They tend to take low cost labor (interns) and use them only for as long they have tax benefits. Afterwards they are replaced with new people which brings team leads into bad situations since new people need to be trained from the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    Relying too much on input of 'trustworthy' employees while they have no clue about how well a department and/or a specific employee is performing.

    Pros

    Good working environment. Colleagues are friendly and supportive. Knowledge transfer is OK. Good salaries, little above sector average.

    Cons

    Management "lost in space" - lot of wrong decisions in last years, bad investments. Too many funds spent on public image than on substance and development. President and CEO is micromanaging all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Change management (fresh, younger experts needed), CEO should stop micromanagement and dedicate himself to strategic domain.
