    I have been working at JetBrains

    Pros

    The JetBrain's Boston Office is very modern and because the employee size is very small, there is a lot of interaction between upper management (COO, CFO, Co-founder), admin (Office Staff), and engineers. No matter what your role is at JetBrains, you always feel valued. The upper management really take the time to get to know you and make sure you are happy. Work/life balance is great. Upper management is always concerned about your well being and making sure you aren't over worked or burnt out.

    Cons

    None that I could see

    Former Employee - Software Developer 

    I worked at JetBrains full-time

    Pros

    The company is very well managed and treats its employees with the utmost respect and care. I've worked at three other companies before and nothing has come even close with how good it is to work at JetBrains. The pay is very competitive, the healthcare premiums are covered, food is provided for, and management constantly keeps me challenged and growing.

    Cons

    None, this place is seriously great.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at JetBrains full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company does care about its people unlike many others that only say so. Let me give you an example. They started loosing some talented people because of their location - most of the development happened in Russia and many employees wanted to move to Europe or USA. Instead of making strict contracts or whatever, they just opened they own branch in Munich, Germany and relocated a big part of their team there. Now employees have a choice where to work and live.

    Cons

    You really need to be able to self-orient, self-educate and everything "self" yourself. Not that much of a leadership sometimes.

    Pros

    good salaries, great compensation (food, gym, fancy office)

    Cons

    management is awful. It's a large company that is trying to act as a startup. If you are working here 10+ years, everything is OK, if not - you are feeling as noone
