    I worked at European Dynamics full-time

    Pros

    the company recruits smart people; most of the engineers have university degrees from A-list Greek (or even European) universities. The majority of employees are young, hard-working, sociable and therefore there is a positive vibe in the daily work routine.

    Cons

    The company does NOT invest on its staff, really the only goal is to work as long as it takes to hit a deadline. Projects are poorly designed and developed- there is no focus on quality of software/ quality of service.The company's policy is to have cheap production, this is why they recruit so many young, inexperienced but also relatively competent employees. A Few managers are incredibly rude and even offensive to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    You have to value and respect people's talent, it's the only way to add more value to the company.

    I worked at European Dynamics full-time

    Pros

    Work abroad. Nothing else !

    Cons

    Signing documents and employment contract that include penalties and unfair clauses.
    Company pays only if you are in a project and the client pays your rates. Forget about money even having permanent contract. Imagine that working abroad in a expensive city.
    Without offending, it looks like indian company for their number of employees are from there who start working in Europe. There is nothing wrong with that but being Greece under terrible unemployment.

    I worked at European Dynamics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Some really great people to work with
    - Interesting technologies and projects
    - Stability and payments on time

    Cons

    - 10 hours a day? This is counter-productive in practice
    - salaries are on the low side
    - no career advancement opportunities

    Advice to Management

    - That long hours make developers error-prone
    - Involve developers more in the design and decision making for projects they are going to implement in the end
    - You can't keep everyone happy. Keep the productive ones, not the loud ones.

    Pros

    International environment, 15+ nationalities in headquarters, IT projects from all over the world, different projects and tasks every year. Continuously expanding to new markets and increasing number of employees.
    High quality of employees, no fights. Rather flat hierarchy (Developer's hierarchy: developer, team leader, technical manager, department manager, company owner. Consultant's hierarchy: IT consultant, Project manager, department manager, company owner). Good employees can get higher in the hierarchy.
    People are not fired easily, whoever does not fit a position is normally given a chance in 1-2 other positions, unless really inadequate for the IT sector.
    Salaries are paid always on time, medium rates, comparable to market standards.
    Flexible working hours, you may arrive and leave the building whatever time you prefer, you may go out whenever you want, you may work more hours one day and less hours another day, what matters is the average working hours within each month and of course to do your job and collaborate with your team effectively.

    Cons

    Long working hours compared to market standards, obliged to be in the building for 9-9.5 hours a day (monthly average), although market standards is 8.5-9 hours. This is a reason for people leaving. No chance to relax within the building, news websites and external emails are blocked.
    Slightly strict management.

    Advice to Management

    Stability of work is of course important, but working hours should be also considered in order to keep good employees.
