    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

    I worked at ComTrade

    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.
