    I worked at Luxoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. I would recommend the company to anyone who is at the beginning to middle of their career.

    Cons

    Max salary for senior candidates is conservatively $20,000 - $30,000 less than what the local Seattle market supports. I can only assume this is because we are trying to compete with offshore competitors, are capping rates across the US without regard to regional differences, or because internal operating margins are higher than they should be.

    Very few client options based out of the Greater Seattle area.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit wholesale rate sheet approach to compensating senior candidates. Get away from cattle call / volume based agency opportunities, start investing more in Seattle business development.

    Pros

    Very dependable on the project, as usually with vendors.
    You won't get fired because of the cost savings on the internal projects, compared to banks and such.
    Luxoft will always try to keep you if you lost your project, there's a feature called internal mobility and it has their own mobility managers who will guide you and help you.
    Insurance is usually pretty good. Everything else, like work ethics and such is REALLY dependable on the project, so keep that in mind.
    Relocation options are pretty great.

    Cons

    Very small relocation package and almost zero support during the process.
    As I mentioned, work ethics, work/life balance and other issues can pop up depending on the project you'll get.
