    Pros

    If not on project, EPAM doesn't push you out soon.
    Most of the people are on client site, so we are on small islands. Manager / Account Manager knows the worth.

    Cons

    Low increments despite off market doing good.
    You are on your own.

    Advice to Management

    If company is profitable, it makes sense to give relatively decent increment.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Cons

    it's just an outsourcing company.. almost 0 internal connections. If you are in the US, u r most likely a ukrainian, belarusian citizen who is promised a green card.

    Pros

    - tons of interesting projects, just pick the stack

    Cons

    - it's primarily consultancy as a service business, you won't get good rates until you are a rockstar or a manager
