    I have been working at EPAM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company provides access to different competencies as well as opportunity to work across different industries and client cultures. Still flat in a sense that top management is very aware of what's happening and who's doing what on particular implementation team level.

    Cons

    Company is growing very rapidly and is getting more vertical. Transforming into truly big faceless company similar to Accenture with lots of folks coming in with the mindset opposite to the one listed in Pros.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find a balance between vertical and flat organization

    I have been working at EPAM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The digital engagement practice is talented, as are most of the engineers I've worked with. The brand of engineering excellence goes a long way in opening doors for sales opportunities.

    Cons

    It's a cold, loveless work environment. It's difficult to describe Eastern European culture in such a short space. I recommend reading Dostoyevsky or Tolstoy.

    Pros

    Loose connections with management. If you are on site at client office, you won't see them for months.

    Cons

    Job security. Company takes care of everything. If one project is over they will find soon, but you still keep all company benefits salary, insurance, vacation days, etc. Huge training possibilities. A lot internal courses and communities.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more communications with people, not just mandatory assessments.

    Pros

    Interesting projects / clients.

    Cons

    Do not expect to be treated as a part of EPAM or client company.You are just a resource for both of them. Compensation package is average. Vacation - 10 days for the first 5 years. Almost nothing for bonus. Good as a temporary job opportunity.

    I worked at EPAM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - all pros, which apply to working in bodyshop
    - relocation opportunities
    - nice people, really
    - good for lower to mid level developers

    Cons

    - all cons, which apply to working in bodyshop
    - you will work on cr**py, messy, support projects, dropped to bodyshop by companies, which couldn't convince their own developers to support this AMAZING software :) Nothing personal, just business.
    - different locations from good to bad. you never know in advance.
    - no way to grow beyond mid developer. You even may have difficulties selling this experience later, because of really old tools/environments/approaches.
    - expect lot of politics. if you strongly dislike that - think twice.
    - salaries significantly below market. Beware, greedy guys :)
    - in general, it's classic company, build by management, for management, with little IT involved.

    Advice to Management

    It would be stupid for developer to give suggestions about management. I only beg about one thing, throw away HP's and give macs to developers, like TECH companies do. Best wishes!
