    I have been working at EPAM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Like anything in a service provider company it dependents highly on the project and hence customer you are working for.
    I had a chance to work on the exciting mission critical projects and boring as well.

    Cons

    There are boring projects sometimes.
    And be ready for relocation if your current project is ended and you don't have one close

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

    Pros

    Very good place to start career in the US for software engineers and testers from Eastern Europe. You can work with people with similar background gradually immersing in American corporate culture. Helps a lot in overcoming cultural shock and language barrier.

    Cons

    Most of the engineers working at EPAM in the US have moved recently from overseas and wait for the permanent resident status. Company knows that people cannot leave due to visa and other bureaucratic restrictions. Most employees are payed at or below average market rate. 90 percent of my fellow engineers treat EPAM as a stepping stone in their engineering career in the US counting days till they get their long-awaited Green Cards.

    Advice to Management

    Stock prices go up so you must be doing something right. Never mind high employee turnover.
