    Pros

    Hours are relatively flexible depending on which team you're on.

    Cons

    Base salary is extremely low. Work environment is toxic! The upper management give high promises for new projects but do not deliver. Managers can be very passive aggressive and don't show much interest in my work.

    Pros

    If you are someone that likes to learn on the job and has the motivation to tackle cumbersome projects, then this would be a good fit as there are always many issues to deal with that require multitasking and wearing several hats.

    Cons

    Work life balance not the best.

    I have been working at Reply full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - High level of responsibility early on

    Cons

    - Nonexistent work life balance. - Very top down management approach - management will promise a deadline without talking to its developers, and then expect long hours to meet the deadline that was never discussed. - Compensation below market value; only discussed once per year. - Only one main customer; no other projects coming in. - Absolutely no working from home.

    I have been working at Reply full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The experience is very good: you work as a consultant to a very big client right off the bat. - Because it is a small startup, you are given much responsibility early on in your position. - Small startup makes for a more casual dress code and workplace.

    Cons

    - Moving up to the next position is very difficult; there are senior consultants here who manage 5-10 people each that the company refuses to promote to manager. - Career path and other such discussions are difficult to have because career path is not clearly defined. - The pay and benefits are low compared to other positions of the same nature.
