    Pros

    We have a lot of cool projects and products that are going to a new market. We have a new parent company that supports way better our projects and its a huge competitor in the market.

    Cons

    There is a lot of company values that I dont think other companies have. I can say that we have a lot of projects and we try to have a work life balance...

    Pros

    Good perspectives to migrate to US (L-1 visa).
    Human resource departments do care employees.
    In teams using Agile methodology there is a quite good adjusted and flexible work process.

    Cons

    In teams using Waterfall model there is a too heavy work process with long management vertical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less process, more product and people.

    Pros

    Great people to work with!

    Cons

    Maybe too many irons in the fire, too many groups developing code for multiple phone carriers!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there was some way to streamline the processes so multiple groups aren't inventing the same things at the same time...more knowledge sharing to save time and duplication of effort!
