    I worked at Mail.ru full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a big and stable company, where you may learn how to work at big projects and communicate with different specialists. It's definitely great experience for junior developers, who don't have a clear understanding of "good and bad workflow".

    Cons

    It's a company with one of the worst workflow I've ever worked with. Usually developers are not connected to the projects and might be transferred from one project to another during a day. That means that quality of code is really poor.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your employees what hey think about company and how you may improve workflow.

    Pros

    Mail.Ru is one of the IT largest companies in Russia. Lots of well-qualified technical specialists.

    Cons

    Bad companies "karma" in IT community; Management is very poor. Product managers are fine, but theirs directors and some of VP are absolutely ineffective. HR working only on hunting new developers; No performance reviews, you need to ask your management about salary growth; In my team is very bad work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Think more about people, not money; Make management performance review.
