    Contractor work. The salary could be better.

    I have been working at EPAM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked a few years in one of the former Soviet Union offices and then moved to the US and currently work onsite. I can definitely say that working in an offshore office was a much more pleasant experience. But it's no wonder as you become just one of many contractors on the customer side. On the other hand, you will get a green card in just a few years. So it's a real opportunity to relocate to "the first world" if you have that ambition. Compensation and insurance are fine, given your location is not expensive.

    Cons

    The engineering level highly depends on the concrete project and customer.

    I have been working at EPAM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    1. Opportunity to relocate to USA 2. A lot of internal resources for a self - education 3. A lot of customers from Fortune 100

    Cons

    1. EPAM retains on a bench only 2 weeks after COVID-19 crisis. There are 2 options - lay off or furlough. This happen at least in south states like Texas, Louisiana where a lot of oil and gas businesses affected 2. Comparatively low salary 3. Low annual bonuses and no salary review. I got 4% annual bonus in April 2020 comparatively of annual salary 4. No stock options. A few colleagues have been proposed company stock when they decided to leave EPAM 5. Hard change a project or switch career. It is easy to change employer. otherwise you can spend even years for your rotation especially if you are at L1

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at EPAM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nothing good to share with you

    Cons

    Work environment highly depends on a client you are assigned to. The company itself does not care about you while you are performing well for the client and they are happy. Having 'weird' manager is possible, but good news here - you will not see him often.
