Approves of CEO

I have been working at Yandex full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Great people to work together on projects and communicate with
- Many interesting projects and products
- Good work conditions, flexible work schedule

Cons

- Lack of good first and middle-level management comparing to American and European companies
- Not so strong engineering culture (NIH, processes)

Advice to Management

- Yandex is not startup anymore and it might benefit from more organized management especially at middle-level (structured goals that come from the highest to lowest level)
- Technical specialists need a career path without a need to go into management roles
