    Pros

    Great colleagues and a fun place to work also something new to do and plenty of opportunities to be able to try something new

    Cons

    The risk of re-orgs is always around, and the risk that you are out of a job is always around the company

    Advice to Management

    do not save too much money on employee benefits - otherwise people will keep leaving

    Pros

    Good opportunities to attend several trainings and to learn new technologies. Good support from your colleagues. Company has very good future after buying different companies.

    Cons

    In large organization you might loose your motive, specially that after hard work for long hours, you are not getting appreciated. Sometimes your manager or leader will get compensated for your hard as it was his own work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your engineers & productive people rather than focusing on processes. People needs to feel compensated otherwise they loose their motive to work.
