    Pros

    Well defined performance review and estimation process. Plenty options to learn new stuff. Benefits are ok. Software engineers are smart because of good recruiting & interviews process.

    Cons

    Compensation package usually contains base salary. Base salary usually a bit lower then market average. No periodical bonuses, assets. Engineers are very dependent on customer's environment, processes and policies.

    I worked at EPAM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked at EPAM for 5 years, and I think it's a great place to work. The company offers all the great perks, typical for a big tech company, is flexible with PTO, and help you relocate to other countries if you're interested. Many interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Salary is usually good, but closer to lower market averages

    I have been working at EPAM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    EPAM is an IT staffing agency, so you are likely to work at a client site. The client may be one of the biggest IT companies, so this may be the only chance to see its office from the inside. As contractors, EPAM employees may enjoy some perks available to the client's own employees.

    The clients usually have little control over contractors and EPAM, in turn, tends to leave its employees alone once they are sent to a client. Because of that, you are unlikely to face any pressure, overtimes, etc. When at work, you are free to spend your time as you wish. No EPAM manager will bother you. This may be a good opportunity to do some personal development.

    Cons

    IT outstaffing at its finest. Not much to add to the other reviews here.

    No career opportunities, no bonuses no matter what you do. It's rather easy to become a mid-level manager, but that's of questionable value.

    One thing to note is that EPAM managers are mostly not the type of person you would want to work with, talk to or meet.

    Being a contractor working at a client site, you often spend most of the day on your own. Besides that, the client's employees may show little respect to you. Sensitive people may feel lonely and depressed.

    Advice to Management

    Foster psychologically healthy workplace.
