    I have been working at Scytl full-time

    Pros

    Very nice people. Interesting business. The product development provides engineer with all types of challenges from implementation of some advanced mathematics to performance and scalability.

    Cons

    For historical reasons the engineering culture is still more solution oriented than product oriented which leads to ad hoc design, short term planning, lack of deep analysis and some chaos during release period.

    Advice to Management

    Improve engineering culture. Product development requires more strategic and long-term plagnning, more investments of time into design, architecture and high quality codebase. Have courage to completely rework the problematic parts of the product instead of endless last minute patching. Have vision what will be the product in two or three years.
