    Pros

    At NetCracker, you'll be valued from day one of employment. You are constantly given new and exciting challenges, and your managers are open with you about your progress and where your next opportunities will be. Sales engineers are very visible, and your hard work will be noticed by all sides of the organization. The travel assignments are exciting and refreshing, and the managing team does a great job balancing the sometimes heavy workloads with ample time to recover. The team environment here is great, and your co-workers are more than willing to help on assignments when you have questions. A truly wonderful role for a young professional looking to get involved in a booming industry.

    Cons

    Occasionally you will receive a tough assignment with heavy travel on short notice, and you will be expected to succeed with this assignment This can be somewhat stressful, but you will be prepared to handle it.

    Pros

    Training for New Hire Classes, Travel, Salary, Project-based work, gaining insight into cutting edge communications technologies, Great people & company culture, our customers are large/recognizable

    Cons

    I am not particularly fond of the industry (telecommunications), but the work is still stimulating. With a large Russian & Ukranian employee base, there will be lots of conversations in foreign languages that one may not understand. Non-disclosure agreements mean you may not be able to talk about your involvment in some of the coolest projects

    Advice to Management

    Publish a list of logos & the solutions that they are using - let employees know what accounts/projects we are allowed to reference and those which should not be discussed.

    Pros

    1. The average employee I.Q. is very high which is not surprising given the hiring strategy the company adopted a long time ago of chasing after the smartest people in the industry and targeting the best technical schools around the world.
    2. Very agile culture, very entrepreneurial in spirit - quick decision-making, very little bureaucracy, results-driven.
    3. Senior management is very approachable, the company is not hierarchical or level-conscious.

    Cons

    1. Work-life balance can be tough sometimes
    2. Being constantly surrounded by smart people who like to challenge everything and everyone can be intimidating and sometimes even perceived as "arrogant"
    3. Fire drills happen often but life would be boring without them

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    NetCracker has grown signficantly over the last 3 years, since I started with the company. Its a great company to work for because it combines the security of a well-established organization, with the culture and attitude of a start-up. I work with a group of extremely smart people who are always raising the bar on the work we are producing. The technology and projects are exciting and I am confident that this will continue.

    Cons

    Some of the same things that make the company fun to work for may also be seen as cons by some. Due to the rapid growth, policies and procedures are yet to catch up. I see this improving but will continue to be a work in progress for some time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep evaluating processes as you continue to grow.

    Pros

    I have been working for NetCracker for just a year but already can convincingly claim it gave me significant technical knowledge boost. It is not only due to strong corporate personal development system, supplying with various kinds of trainings and compiled materials, but also thanks to people-oriented management, respectful to employees, and supportive colleagues. Honestly, without fantastic team of overachievers we had slim chances to fulfill Japanese project with demanded zero-level bug quality. Since field of System Integration interacts with wide-range of technologies, it makes my expertise to expand daily to meet job criteria.
    Remarkable, Company suggests a highly branched career opportunity tree, so, I guess, everyone can be offered suitable (including non-technical) position options whether candidate is just graduated or already gained some background.
    Speaking about work flow aspects, I could say that every customer is treated individually; approaches and procedures get adjusted to make collaborative work as much efficient as possible. Up to me, working closely with international customers brings positive results because of getting constant valuable feedbacks. It encourages and motivates when your efforts are highly rated and appreciated.
    I would strongly recommend joining NetCracker if you are looking for new ways of speeding up your experience and career potential growing. Successful developing and independent deploying of its own product, by my opinion, enables NC to grow, evolve and keep staying undefeated on competitor market.

    Cons

    Working on project, be as ready as you can for anything can happen at any time

    Pros

    Nice people and very friendly environment: if you can ask for help any colleague and they will help you, even if you are not on the same project. A lot of attention is paid in the company to physical and psychological comfort of the employees and their development. Good comprehensive trainings, including trainings for newcomers.

    The company has lots of different projects, so there are always opportunities to learn new things and get new experience; you have even the possibility to move to another project, if you not like at all the job you do on your current project.
    Work/life balance is maybe a bit not as perfect as you would love it to be. Overtime occurs, but you are not obliged to work, if you do not want to.

    The salary is also very-very nice: the company has money and if you have skills and experience – they will be paid accordingly. Overtime is paid in double.

    In general, it is a great place to spend 40 hours/week.

    Cons

    Trips may be a problem for some people. Otherwise, no big drawbacks to mention – personally, I managed to solve all the problems I had by talking to my managers or HR people.

    Advice to Management

    Do not spoil the good things that exist now.

    Pros

    Convenient office location.
    Nice friendly colleagues.
    Large-scale projects.

    Cons

    Hard to find. For me it's probably 22-inch monitor. I would like to work for a 27 inch. But this is nitpicking.
