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

    Pros

    Benefits, insurance, access to technical trainings.

    Cons

    Not so many cons. Salary is on lower end but still competitive for this location. Once you are working in client location, you are mostly on your own. Since it's a vendor position, there's a risk that client will cut it in case of cut of costs and you will need to move, thus, it's hard to plan any significant steps like purchase of a house.

    Pros

    Good benefits, fair compensation when you get closer to senior roles

    Cons

    When you work for a client, you work in client's environment which can be much worse than EPAM's environment
    In most cases your resource manager and account manager are the same person which leads to limitations in your professional growth

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

    Pros

    - Decent pay if you are on the business side
    - Incredible growth path (someone is doing something right - find engineers at low price from eastern eu STEM universities and bring them on L1)
    - Acquihire senior talent through M&A
    - Many are there for experience, not for the long haul

    Cons

    - Seniormost leadership runs like a family business of east europeans
    - Incredible nepotism across all senior levels
    - Achieves analyst company ratings through shady deals
    - Culture is fake: they try to act as cool, liberal, forward facing but does nothing than a green wash on all fronts
    - Strong affiliations with countries ruled by dictators - though publicly they appear as a US HQ publicly listed company

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. You don't have to do much if you don't want to which might be good in some situations.
    Some projects are better than others
    Lots of free time which can be used for learning something new

    Cons

    You manager doesn't really care about you until the client pays - No goals, no feedback, nothing
    Lots of legacy project
    Cutting costs everywhere
    No clear career path

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your best people as they live.
