    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.
