    Pros

    Huge learning curve in all aspects- from technical to business- directly from the upper level managers and technical leads.
    Great work/life balance- company building facilities promote a healthy lifestyle.

    Cons

    Hidden politics especially to interns- aspects of project not transparent.
    Some employees too aware of the company bureaucracy and visibility of internal tension.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recruiting the best and train them with your invaluable knowledge!

    Pros

    Great company to learn how to work in structured way, using methodologies which are proven and deliver quality products or services. Amazing talent within the company and exposure to international crowd and multiple partners with expertise in specific area.

    Cons

    Pressure to deliver numerical results - goals are sometimes set in unexplainable ways - sometimes not reachable deadlines, budgets or scope. On top employees sometimes behave like they work for different companies and challenge each other.

    Advice to Management

    Synchronise goals of business units which depend on each other and be open with the communication - clear communication about the direction.
