    Pros

    Flexible working hours,
    Friendly atmosphere atmosphere in the team,
    Decent salary,
    Interesting projects but it depends, company is pretty big so you could work in interesting project or in some boring software conservation

    Cons

    Salary could be better,
    Development prospects should be better defined,
    If you will be employed in boring project it could be not so fun to work here,
    No free coffe

    Advice to Management

    Paths/possibilities of development prospect should be better defined,
    if you want to keep good programmers you should increase salary by 50%

    I have been working at ComArch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Since all of Comarch's services and solutions are all proprietary, it allows for solutions to be completely tailored for the end user. Additionally - of Comarch's 4200< employees - 75% are technical. The organization is profitable, growing year-over-year, has solid references, and invest's 11% on R&D annually.

    Cons

    Well there are few cons to working at Comarch - what bothers me the most is lack of sales leadership. Aside from that - Comarch is a great place to work.

    I worked at ComArch full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Learn to do everything by yourself. Location

    Cons

    Micromanagement at the level of CEO needs to approve every single expense. No benefits and low pay.No organization or procedures in place. High turnover, and the clients know it, so reinventing analysis every year. Upper management is one person. No strategy in place for the next 3-5 years. Stay away from this place.

    Advice to Management

    People are unhappy and it is being ignored. Leadership needs to stop promoting management from within, and start looking outside, as they are only perpetuating there already lack luster culture.
