      Pros

      For a student or a novice, it's a great place to start. There are a lot of talented people working here. Good office. Interesting projects.

      Cons

      Management is bad. May seem they don't really care about the personal growth of an employee. You may be working on a project for a year just to find one day that it is closed, for some strange reasons. More focus on results not on people. People are great to work with, but there is no established studio or a core team, a lot of people being moved on different low-quality projects. Bad work/life balance

      Mail.Ru is one of the IT largest companies in Russia. Lots of well-qualified technical specialists.

      Cons

      Bad companies "karma" in IT community; Management is very poor. Product managers are fine, but theirs directors and some of VP are absolutely ineffective. HR working only on hunting new developers; No performance reviews, you need to ask your management about salary growth; In my team is very bad work-life balance.

      Pros

      A lot of pros and cons depend on a *team* you are working at. In general: - Some strong technical specialists - Low bureaucracy level - Good compensation - Great office

      Cons

      - Engineers have few impact on products - Decision making is not transparent. - Work/life balance. Office is good, but it's very likely you will not have time to use all these gyms and juice bars.
