Pros

- Struggling to come up with any. Really. Somehow, like any bad company, they've caught a few good apples in their basket. - There is a lot of cash floating about if you're a top dog. Not that this trickles down. - There is free tea and coffee. Woo.

Cons

- It's genuinely an awful place to work. Nobody is motivated. Nobody believes in what they're selling and delivering. It's a running joke that everyone in the company hates their job. - Extremely cheap. This is not a company to work for if you're expecting any kind of training, or learning and development. Laughable concept. - Speaking of extremely cheap - even if you've worked for Luxoft for 3 years and they've been billing you out to clients, profiting on a stupidly high margin - as soon as you're on the bench for over a month they'll be serving you redundancy. - If they can screw you out of any money at all, they will. - No clear direction or strategy. If there is one it would be nice if it was shared! - Complete organisational chaos. I suppose that's to be expected when you seem to buy a ton of companies and mash them together. But maybe someone should look into that organisational chaos and set about resolving it? - Salaries do not compete with competitors. Why would you work for Luxoft or one of their purchases when you could just work for their client directly for more money and better treatment? - Awful IT systems. Overworked HR departments. I guess this is again the norm when your company is as miserly as this one. - A massive majority of the business is sat with a specific German bank that's not exactly performing well... if that's not risky what is.

Advice to Management

Advice generally - jump off the sinking ship. Advice to management - I get you don't seem to care about employee attrition rates and view people as replaceable commodities, but I don't think that offshoring attitude works everywhere.

No clear direction or strategy.

Pros

- possibility to use internal mobility to change projects (when it works) - started with top of the market salary - best private healthcare plan available at the time - team-building money pool and events

Cons

- possibility to use internal mobility to change projects (often doesn't work) - did not catch up with the top of the market level of salaries growth - corporate goals created just to be there, without much substance

Pros

I am working in Luxoft for more than 8 years. The company contributes to my development as a specialist and personality. Nice atmosphere and interesting enough projects

Cons

Need to invest more in maintaining the brand, collaborate with higher education institutions and make corporate parties more often.
