    Pros

    - Good, interesting and challenging projects.
    - You may have a big impact on things, if you're proactive.
    - Talented team mates - hiring bar in Krakow is pretty high, at least for engineers.
    - Decent hardware - MBP or XPS, 27" Dell monitors.
    - Development funds - never had a problem if I wanted to go to the conference.

    Cons

    - If you aren't careful with your calendar, you may land on bunch of unproductive meetings - be assertive.
    - Things are moving fast (great!), there are several projects going on at the same time, but sometimes you may feel overloaded with work, especially when on leadership position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Flexible employer, good benefits package, generally friendly and like-minded people, opportunity always open to get exposure to different parts of the business, culture much more about getting the job done right in the time you're there rather than on time spent in the office for the sake of it

    Cons

    Senior staff always seemed focused on the retail side of the business to the detriment of building an institutional product

    Pros

    Market leading company in their area. The company can move very swiftly to prioritse new/important projects. Exposure to the full SDLC, with the support of cool tech.

    Cons

    Sometimes a bit too much bureaucracy in the way of what should be easy decisions. Roles of some people/groups not entirely clear.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the foot soldiers in the loop - we want to know what is going on, where we are going, and would like our opinions heard (if not acted on)
