    Pros

    Good dinner. Much freedom in each project. The company values good employees and will try their best to persuade you to stay.

    Cons

    The salary is not quite competitive and even much lower than what you would get in a smaller company or startups if your position is a software developer.

    Advice to Management

    The layout of the office is not optimal. In one office there are only three employees. It is better to create a more spacious workspace where employees can easily chat with each other.
