    Pros

    If you are ambitious and passionate about the things you do, your everyday tech life, your career, this is the right place to grow and gather experience, since there are always various kind of projects with different tech challenges. Company culture is very nice, all kind of different tech activities, team building, company team buildings, after works, knowledge sharing sessions are organized regularly. So you won't get bored. From goodies, they offer lunch, budget for team building per quarter and bonuses.

    Cons

    Even that they state that are following official legislation, in particular cases they do it like they need to do it, which is a bit in detriment of the employee.
