    Pros

    You'll have a chance to work with smart people in an exiting and very competitive market

    Cons

    Slow, waterfall approach, needlessly bureaucratic.
    From a technical standpoint I've never seen such a misuse of old and obsolete technologies.
    If you are a software engineer and you like your job, then you should look elsewhere.
    No one have a clue about software development best practices.
    Use of SCM is mostly unknown, SVN is somehow adopted, depending of the team. Anyone is adverse to the "Let's make it better" philosophy.
    If you are a great politician you may end to be promoted and rewarded.
    If you are a smart engineer who just want to do its job , be prepared to be perceived as a cost from the entire organization.
    Do not even try to propose modern well known and industry-standard solutions to a well known problems solved by the industry by years. No one will support you, reinvent the wheel, adopt 2000 patterns and technology and you'll be fine

    Advice to Management

    Stop fishing OSS managers from the same bucket. They all have failed. Start to look elsewhere. Bring meritocracy back to your core values

    I worked at FastWeb (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fastweb's still a company where you can meet great people with a strong will to realize themselves without trampling on colleagues. Most people I worked with were willing to help and to work together in a common view of goals. Personal advantage was not considered better than the company profit. Many chances to improve your knowledge. Some valuable flexibility in moving from role to role following a personal career scheme.

    Cons

    Sacrifice long term goals for short term profits. No fair prize or promotion system. All the company spins around some leading figures, sometimes thrusting a shadow on the real skills of real workers.

    Advice to Management

    Most managers don't understand the basics of management. They should give a look around and understand that menacing is not the right way to have things done.

    I worked at FastWeb part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Personal initiatives are welcome, they generally try to accomodate employees.

    Cons

    Salary rarely matches career advances. Too little collaboration between departments leads to a lot of duplicate effort. Use of old-fashioned software methodologies.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt modern software development technologies to iterate quickly make development faster, so that departments do not need to make up their own solutions, but rather collaborate with IT dept.
