    Current Employee - Project Manager in Saint Petersburg (Russia)

    Pros

    Great people, challenging tasks, excellent offices, decent salary if you negotiate one during on-boarding. It is a 1500+ people startup.

    Cons

    You don't get to those great tasks as the vision and strategy change every week. Inexperienced young management is living a dream and no one wants to take the responsibility. Even after 5 years it's being treated as a startup, so whenever projects move to operations - they fail. Seriously lacks business vision and pushiness since the departure of the previous CEO in 2012.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strategy is key. Changing the strategy to just keep the people busy is not sustainable.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Saint Petersburg (Russia)

    Pros

    People here are really great. Working here at engineering team has been one of the greatest time I have ever had. Team is strongly result oriented.

    Cons

    Management really sucks. Business requirements change every week, change requests are inserted into release several day before deadline.
    Don't expect annual payrise (even as inflation compensation) and any bonuses

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value people you hired. The are the best resources you have. Change manager/engineer ratio to 20/1 or better.
