    Pros

    Very nice people, friendly managers, relaxed non-corporate environment. Some training opportunities available recently.

    Cons

    Low pay, bad resource planning, meaning that periods of working round the clock are followed by periods with nothing to do. Either is frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a code of conduct for communication between different departments. People can get away with being awfully rude via email.

    Pros

    Strong work/life balance, opportunity for advancement, appropriate compensation/benefits

    I can only speak from my personal experience, but over the course of many years, I've been given many opportunities to prove myself and advance my own career. I've had the opportunity to work with all areas and leadership to see the company from varied perspectives.

    If I were to use the star-system as a rating (1-bad, 2-needs improvement, 3-average, 4-good, 5-excellent), in terms of my position, work/life balance is 5 (I'm intrinsically motivated and understand that time and productivity must be balanced to benefit the company, in turn, benefiting the employee). Compensation is a 4 - truthfully speaking, everyone feels they should get paid more, so perfection is elusive. Career Opportunities is also a 4. No company seems invulnerable to the fluctuating market, but I feel I'm a strong contributor. Senior Management is 4 - I'm given lots of autonomy, but could use a slightly more open line of communication. Additionally, all of my direct supervisors have allowed me to use them in a mentor-like capacity (helping me with advancement).

    My overall rating is at a 4 (if taking the other areas and averaging the total). If I were to give a tip to prospective applicants - be flexible and open to change - if something is wrong, find a way to fix it.

    Cons

    Hectic work environment (at times), average job culture, (some) communication static

    The most evident aspect of the company is the rapid change associated with rapid growth. Although there are challenges, this is to be expected with a company rapidly moving to meet client demand.

    Culture / values sits at 3 due to the aforementioned breakneck pace of change and meeting client demand. I think the rating would be average with most similar companies.

    Advice to Management

    Communication (even if brief). Praise employee strengths. Learn from employee weaknesses. Communicate again.

    Pros

    The company is growing which means job security. Small enough to not be just a cog in a machine, but big enough for stability.

    Cons

    Not alot of training for entry level positions.

    Advice to Management

    More practical training for entry level workers.

  9. A good place to start

    Pros

    – Paid overtime working hours
    – Ability to work from home
    – Some flexibility in daily schedule

    Corporate initiatives are told more or less clearly, there is a view of career advancement for employees. Colleagues are mostly friendly. Office location is good, but car-owners may experience difficulties with finding a place for their cars.

    Cons

    Messy corporate structure with a high “technical debt”.
    Some gaps in project management, the only way to handle with responsibilities is to be very well self-organized.
    Local office in Saint-Petersburg is shrinking during the last several years which lead to an increasing ratio of clerks vs wheelhorses.
    Not everybody gets paid overtime, it depends on the managers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what’s going on in the office, don’t just do your work and go home

    Pros

    Salaries are generally competitive .....

    Cons

    Everything else.

    - Line Managers are disrespectful and passive-aggressive;

    - Training is very poor;

    - Materials (contract templates) are often full of clerical/grammatical errors;

    - Department management are paranoid - they would not agree to uploading templates in a library because "....other departments would then have access to them too!".

    Advice to Management

    Give us a vision!
