    I worked at Sulake full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with some amazingly talented individuals across many varied and interesting projects. Flexible work time and environment. Supportive of career progression and improving skills.

    Cons

    Given the time difference, working with the HQ team was sometimes difficult. Project briefs sometime weren't very detailed and required additional meetings to discover required details.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to you users. Listen to your staff. You have an amazing product but it is being drained by money hungry management that only considers the bottom line.

    Pros

    Sulake is really open minded workplace where your opinion is appreciated. I have learned a lot at Sulake and it has been good for my personal growth. Organisation is super flat.

    Cons

    Not much. Salary could be better and it's hard to get pay rise.

    I have been working at Sulake full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Trainings from time to time, but mostly learning by doing or by sharing experience with other employees. Good Management Team!

    Cons

    If there is a problem or a conflict, usually people do not talk directly, but they have to sort it out via their line managers. I don't know if it's good or not, but I think direct talk is much better than talk behind someones back.

    Pros

    Agile and innovative development environment of Sulake allows you to learn newest open source technologies.
    You are allowed to work free of time and space.
    Young atmosphere, very skilled collagues

    Cons

    Salary is not bad, but not good either.
    You do not get oppurtinity for external education or training very often.
    For 5 years, I had only twice.
    Sulakes product is not 'In' anymore among the youth , dispite the constant innovative changes in the product.
     The company is on the verge of being sold or diying.

    Advice to Management

    Good job, but something drastically different had to be invented to get this company upright path again
