    I have been working at HDL Design House full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working in HDL DH for five months now and I can say that it has been a very positive experience. I had the opportunity to work with experienced and knowledgeable engineers who are always willing to help junior engineers. The general atmosphere in the company is very positive and friendly. I would recommend working here. Salaries are above standard for IT companies in Serbia.

    Cons

    It is a bit crowded in this building where we are now, but we will move in a couple of months to a larger one.

    I worked at HDL Design House full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a New Year's decision, I decided to fairly grade all the companies I worked in. So here goes:

    - most projects are short, last less then a year - allows you to work on many different stuff during your carrier in HDL
    - working for some of the most influential companies out there
    - chance to travel and meet the industry leaders
    - flexible work days/hours
    - chance to meet interesting people (the best thing in HDL are people)
    - good company location (city center)
    - good for junior engineers, you can learn a lot

    Cons

    As a New Year's decision, I decided to grade all the companies I worked in, and to be fair. So here goes:

    - work/life balance doesn't exist, you're almost always working on more then 1 project (2 or even 3 if you're good) and working late because you're always missing milestones
    - projects are different - from very good to garbage (if you're lucky you'll get good stuff, but as a junior you're more likely to get garbage)
    - bad for experienced engineers since they're being overworked (if you're good, as a reward, you'll get another project, not a bonus or a salary increase)
    - I left some time ago and when I think of my past time there I can say I learned many things but at high price, only work work work

    Advice to Management

    Nothing will change whatever I say.

    3. There is no system for employee review, you have to negotiate for salary every time

    There should be a person doing HR instead of busy directors trying to do everything.

    Pros

    The company is growing really fast. You start with a training if you never had relevant experience, together with other junior and senior engineers.
    Good working atmosphere, flexible work hours, many highly qualified and open-minded employees. International clients which are some of the leading companies in the field.
    Salary is average compared to other similar companies, but the location in this part of the city is much better than New Belgrade.

    Cons

    Not much space available currently in the building, so in the start your conditions might not be very pleasant, but that will be solved soon.
    Sometimes you might have to stay longer than expected to finish the job.

    Great for young and talented persons with little or no experience, working for big players in this industry, flexible working hours policy

    I have been working at HDL Design House full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn a lot in a short period of time and work for big companies. Good colleagues, willing to help. Opportunity to travel abroad. Possible bonuses after successful year for company. Management is trying to find the best projects for the company.

    Cons

    Working on weekends is not a rare thing but you are payed extra for that. Tight deadlines which might cause working overtime for some time if not every day especially if working on more than one project.

    Advice to Management

    The company could work more on its image towards possible future employers and try to share the news about its success among students, future engineers. All in all, management could invest more in marketing in order to draw attention of best engineers.
