      Pros

      - insurance is not bad comparing to other out-staffing companies; - you can say "I'm fed up for this project" and might be relocated, but you must work one more year (or pay-back whatever you owe for expenses); - you might be lucky to get a GC (but it will take too much time, artificially slowing down).

      Cons

      - Poor salary rates. - You will be just a resource, no one is going to care about you. It's just a business. - You might be lucky to work on some EPAM's clients with a modern tech stack and good management, but I haven't seen it within 4 projects. - There is no culture for the team buildings in the company, New Year events are cheap, or even it's not organized. - You might be blamed for some harassment, just to do not do a salary review and/or bonuses. Funny thing that one RM might say you "pass assessment and increase your job title" for salary review, but meanwhile another one "I don't care about it, show off yourself for client". Don't expect significant royalty for your ambitions and overtime.

      Bodyshop with all attributes.

      Jan 20, 2021 - Senior Software Development Engineer in Seattle, WA

      Pros

      The company has a lot of projects in a lot of different locations (good or bad) and you can relocate globally or across the US. Due to the nature of the business company has. expertise in a lot of different areas and you can definitely find something you fit. Good internal tools and support of general infrastructure are excellent again due to the nature of the outsourcing type of business. Medical insurance is good.

      Cons

      All are customer-centric and based on project and company management treat you based on customer feedback or how the customer likes you. As result, all come to favoritism and a toxic work environment. Contract type of work and company in most cases block your ability to switch to FTE position with the same client. Salary is lower compare to the market rate, not stock options or etc, and most of the people leaving the company where they obtain a green card. Not too much support during COVID time. You're not able to start GC process if you're not assigned to any project and sitting on the bench. No gym reimbursements, home office, volunteering day-off, tuition or etc.

      Pros

      Technology, infrastructure is ok, lots of projects

      Cons

      Anyone can be a manager. Resource managers in the US are the worst. Threatening, lies, overall they don't care what do you want. No words, no problem. If you are awesome, they don't care. No raise, or just a little. You are SOLD to the customer. Like a stuff. not a human being. If you want to change a project? They don't want to do that, because you are SOLD. First they wanna convince you, why you should stay. Then threatening you, force you etc. Xmas party in February because it's cheaper? :DDDD Length is few hours, 2-3? Than everybody should go home. Epam in EU is good. In the US? NEVER.
