    I have been working at Soshace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - hight salary
    - long-term international projects
    - remote work

    Cons

    For in-company employers where are still paid vacations and paid time between projects but with less salary. But business direction has been changed a lot since the beginning.
    Right now there are only remote positions with next cons:
    - uncomfortable time tracker
    - no paid vacations
    - you might need to wait a lot of time till they find you a good project (without paying)

    I have been working at Soshace full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Remote work.
    - No strict requirements on schedule.
    - Wide choice of good projects.
    - Technology stack is based on modern frameworks = new experience and professional growth.
    - Rates higher than average in Russia.
    - Many financial and organizational questions may be resolved by managers.
    - English practice is a natural bonus

    Overall conditions are great for ex-freelancers who are used to work on outsourcing. If you have some experience with foreign customers then Soshace may become the next step of your professional career.

    Cons

    - Time tracker may be uncomfortable for developers who used to work without it.
    - Requires some additional unpaid activities to manage your business (taxes, documents). Interviews with potential clients also take time.
    - No paid vacations.
    - Some work processes are not regulated by Soshace and must be negotiated directly with clients. Hence comfort of work may vary on different projects depending on client's requirements. (This "con" may even become "pro" if you have good contact with customer and able to negotiate for optimized work process and most comfortable schedule)

    Advice to Management

    Try to improve management strategies to reduce potential "downtime" for developers. Timeout between first interview in Soshace and first real income is quite long.

    Keep up a good work!
