    Pros

    Elisa Corporation makes sure that their employees are doing well both professional and at their personal lives.

    I worked at Elisa Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good health care benefits. Very easy to get unpaid leave. Also grants option to exchange "vacation money" to additional 3 weeks of annual vacation: you can get up to 8 weeks of paid leave each year.

    Cons

    Lots of meetings. Low-end salaries. Skill level of software developers vary a lot. Most developers aren't active in improving the work culture and they aren't expected to participate in product design process, only to do their job as programmers. Lots of outsourced developers from TCS; their skill level is mostly extremely low.

    Advice to Management

    Create environment where developers can be innovative; reduce amount of bureucracy
