    I have been working at IST - International Software Techniques full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Regular and consistent raises.
    Higher salary cap (per experience level) for capable individuals (at least for entry and mid-level).
    Exposure to interesting and modern technologies, if you land on an internal team.
    Excellent upper management. Takes care of its people. Direct line of communication.
    Exposure to diverse clients and technologies. The clients are mostly big names that look good on a resume.
    Exposure to the internal workings of different teams and companies allows you familiarize yourself with various aspects of the industry.
    The company is in a solid growth phase.

    Cons

    Most of the work is T&M on clients. You may stay on a client for years if the client is satisfied and you never ask for a transfer.
    Many clients use older, enterprise tech, or maintain straight-up legacy systems.
    Working away from company for long periods of time is not for everyone.
    Working away from company might mean you have to learn some things on your own.
    It's difficult to advance to other job titles. You need to enjoy being an engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Strive for more balance between internal and client work for developers.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Athens (Greece)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at IST - International Software Techniques (Athens (Greece)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First interview with with the CEO and the General Manager. Second interview with a Project Manager. Mostly a casual discussion, no predefined script or written down questions. Discussion on past experience, past projects and mostly focus on the technologies I had experience with. Emphasis that I will have to constantly learn new technologies, if employed. Also emphasis that I will need to work more than usual sometimes. Two interviews in total. At the end of the second interview I got an offer from the CEO. No naive questions such as "where do you see yourself in five years". Questions that mostly related to my work ethic and to my dedication to the company, as a team member. Realistic questions, not questions coming out of a human resources handbook.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you willing to spend / invest time (maybe some of your personal time as well) in order to learn new technologies that might be needed for some projects?   1 Answer
