      Pros

      Relaxed environment (not a lot of pressure), work/life balance is great, flexible work hours

      Cons

      Depends on projects, but strange hierarchy build up, not much collaboration between analysts and engineers, salaries are generally low, or you need to stay in the company for a long long time

      Pros

      - job stability - a multitude of various projects and teams using different technologies - good working environment - flexible work schedule - usually no overtime work

      Cons

      - can get stuck in legacy technologies (depending on the team/project) - software engineering excellence is not the first priority - too much emphasis on product management-oriended Scrum without practicing the underlying Agile software engineering

      Pros

      Free parking. Nice company building and offices. There is a canteen in the building with great and cheap food. Flexible working hours.

      Cons

      Salaries are not competitive for IT industry. Poor management. People not good in engineering were moved in management and also do very bad job as managers. Not interesting projects. Very hard to change a project if you don't like current one.

      Challenging company by all means

      Pros

      Comtrade is very challenging company for any open mind and willing to learn employee, for both juniors and seniors. There are plenty of different roles and assignments, varying from hard engineering work in "garage" like environment to soft customer consultancy requiring traveling all around the world. . This is why I like being in Comtrade - because I see a lot of different perspectives for my personal development in long time future. Besides this, in Comtrade The People and The Team are base for every activity - this makes us important and gives us additional motivation to go to work day by day. Flexible working hours, a lot of free time organized activities, fun and smart people for colleagues - all this makes this place very desirable for working.

      Cons

      Although company is focused on people, there are often lack of information distribution top down. You must be very open and progressive, and have similar team management to get promoted - this is why sometimes people that are not fit in this description are forgotten.

      Average company with some nice occasional projects, but many problems.

      Pros

      + Depending on the team and department, some projects can be interesting and provide space for growth and programming creativity. Unfortunately, getting these projects is often mostly a matter of luck. + Flexible work time. + Some well-known clients and opportunities related to that. + Possibility to occasionally work from home (e.g. if your kids are sick). + Work-life balance varies project-to-project, but is generally good. Occasional overtime can be expected around tight deadlines. + Lots of events, such as picnics, dinners, new year parties and summer schools for students. Various discounts for e.g. sports and cultural activities are possible. + Friendly colleagues, mostly relaxed atmosphere. + Underground garage parking in the new building.

      Cons

      - Some projects involve hardly anything beyond menial tasks or dull bug fixing in a support role. Such projects have no space for creativity or professional growth. - Salaries tend to be below market competition. - The company doesn't seem to value experienced professionals, nor is it willing to pay them. Above-average developers can have a hard time finding challenging engineering problems. This, combined with lower-than-average entry salaries, has resulted in many talented people leaving the company and a high turnover rate. - Mismanagement of talent. I've seen many young engineers or students assigned menial tasks with management somehow expecting that they will become great through repetitive mediocrity. - Promotions are not based on competence, but almost exclusively on politics and tenure. People who are not aggressive, or don't have a supervisor who will be aggressive for them, are at risk of being seriously lowballed. At least until they realize that and end up leaving. - Constantly changing and reversing political direction and areas of focus - the company has a deep identity crisis. This makes it very hard to specialize in anything due to very real prospects of being re-assigned at a whim to unrelated projects and having to learn a different technology every 6 months. - As with many large companies, there is lots of corporate lingo and fancy business talk which seems to be valued more than raw technical competence - technical accomplishments are not acknowledged. - Isolation between teams leads to constantly re-inventing the wheel and zero code re-use.
