Pros

Working on Next Generation Internet projects based on Open Source technology. The company culture is open, friendly and the hierarchy fairly flat. Projects are usually intensive and reasonably short so your experience grows quickly. There are opportunities to travel. Optaros has offices in several countries and employees are frequently exchanged between offices - or work remotely - on projects.
The methodology that Optaros uses for projects is a definite advantage. It gives you structure and allows you to get going quickly on new projects and with new teams.

Cons

It is a young company which is growing quickly. (At the time of this review, June 2008.) That means a certain amount of uncertainty about the company structure and individual opportunities.
Getting staffed on the projects that would be good for you in the role(s) you want is sometimes challenging. You can get stuck on boring projects and/or have to deal with bad clients. (As opposed to a company where you don't deal with clients directly.)
The company culture and business practices are not yet the same in each office even though that is a goal of the company.

Advice to Management

Guard the quality of the culture.
