    I worked at Luxoft full-time

    Pros

    Quite large, stable company. Lots of projects for big international companies.

    Cons

    Senior management did not communicate clearly on their decisions. Lack of tact. Presence of "post-Soviet" style of management. Corporate culture is weak. Not much respect to employees. If you are not needed you can be fired fast with no explanation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To develop more human face for the company. Invest in people.
