    Pros

    A good balance between work and personal life

    Cons

    Not good for a developer willing to evolve. Besides a quite low salary a developer is treated like dirt no matter how hard he tries to solve all the problems. Pretty much slander and backstabbing.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open. Do not encourage backstabbing.

    Pros

    The Bank is trying to develop new employees by offering various trainings and courses. Work in the bank - a good chance to start work.

    Cons

    Introduction of new software in the bank does not allow to do the job efficiently and quickly. Because of this constant complaints received from customers that removes from the normal equilibrium

  8. Normal workplace for IT employee.
