    Pros

    Ping pong, Java, coffee and good snacks

    Cons

    Technologies are super old, which is not suitable for tech savy engineers. Management is not good...

    I worked at MyVest

    Pros

    Helpful and friendly people. Flexible hours. Smart and very hard-working developers.

    Cons

    Repetitive tasks. No exposure to new technology. Not much learning experience. No knowledge sharing and bad documentation.

    If you are a developer, expect to develop using cheap, weak and underperforming machines and community edition software.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more money on your machines. It is frustrating when developer has to wait for like 15 minutes to open a new window.

    I worked at MyVest

    Pros

    People are very nice and friendly. The working hours is pretty flexible. Very chill work place.

    Cons

    You will be working with legacy code and legacy technology. You will most likely be doing the same thing for a long time and you will not get anymore learning experience after ~4-5 months. When you work here, you will be working with MyVest's technology which is not worth mentioning about on your resume. This company is 'afraid' of trying out new technology; they tend to stay with what they have and patch their codes along the way.

    There is no transfer of knowledge and people do not write documentations. There are only 1-2 people who know how to run certain tasks and it has stayed that way for a very long time.

    This company is very stingy about spending money on its engineers (computers, food,books, training, etc).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to get developers engaged in new technologies.
