    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    You get to work on many different projects, and you are given a lot of voice regarding the work you are involved in. Great place to expand your knowledge regarding software stacks that you may not have the opportunity to experience elsewhere. The architects and engineers come from very noticeable backgrounds, and helps you get deeper insight into the software industry.

    Cons

    Not exactly the best wages, but definitely still a great place to pick up knowledge that cannot be measured in money.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing much, keep up with the hard work. The opportunities you bring to the employees is very valuable.

    Pros

    * Flexible working hours
    * Average salary
    * A good place for your first real job
    * In many cases gives you opportunity to do many different things
    * Reasonable IT support infrastructure

    Cons

    * Absolutely no way of doing any career development
    * IT company that is ran by sales organization; engineers are worth nothing.

    Advice to Management

    * To succeed, Movial would need a vision, that makes sense
    * It also would need people in upper management who have engineering background so that they would know what they are doing
    * The broken hierarchy sales=management should be fixed.
    * Get rid of desperate short term activities that hurt the long term plans and destroy the morale of everyone.
