Pros

challenging projects to new comers also (if lucky). Hires a lot of unexperienced people and sells them to customers as fully compentent experts. So a pretty good place to learn (and learn fast).

Cons

low salary and no career advancement

Advice to Management

you have no way keeping experienced people in house with current salary policy

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Digia full-time

    Pros

    5 weeks of vacation (European company benefits)
    Good medical insurance options
    Great product

    Cons

    clueless managers
    too much politics and high school-clique culture
    Too much Estrogen in the air
    No real mission or clear business objectives and long term vision
    Free product is so good few customers wants to pay for the supported version (like trying to sell extended warranty to Honda owners)

    Advice to Management

    Learn from Costco's culture of employee first

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Digia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent 401k matching (if you stick around long enough for it to vest)
    Employer-paid benefits
    Work with a highly regarded application framework (Qt)

    Cons

    Crappy work-life balance benefits, very uneven (EU gets 5 weeks of time off, USA gets 2 weeks)
    Not a team-oriented environment. USA (sales) vs EU (engineering)
    Sucky IT policies (bordering on paranoid)
    Cheap on salary.
    Big split in corporate culture: open vs closed source. Business mission flawed.
    Work office was often empty, very little team cohesion, lots of passive-aggressive behavior by management and colleagues.
    Outsourced HR and IT

    Advice to Management

    Not worth mentioning, they think they know better.
